Then you're on your way! :) If stuff is locked which needs unlocking, PM the last editor first. If you don't get a response, there is an Unlock Requests forum.


Cool! Thanks! :)

Also the reason for the split is that many edits listed as being by level 5's were likely performed when those level 5's were level 3 or lower. Edit ranks increase with the editor. So the way it usually goes is many start editing at level one, they play around with it a bit, maybe fix a few local roads where they see problems and then edit less and less. Others decide editing is fun or their town/area really needs some work and request AM status. They clean up their area and see the improvements. At which point they become satisfied that their town is working and stop or just monitor their area, or they really enjoy it and keep on editing, adding more territory as needed to ensure they have edits to make. Then they hit the magic 200k edit mark and get bumped to level 5 allowing greater reach and eliminating the need to constantly add more AM territory.

Makes sense. Hopefully I'm approved as an AM and once again someone can benefit my town. :)

Thanks all for your input!

I'm on my phone, when I get a chance on a PC, I'll send the link.

I think that was the first page done, they have redone it. If you find a post by rottielover, he has a link in his signature on posts.
