How many reviews do you need to write to receive the Top Reviewer badge?

Hi,

I have written 302 reviews so far and I was just wondering how many reviews do you need to write in order to receive the badge?

Thanks for your help.

Jackson,
It is not a specific number, to get it you must become a prolific reviewer and then the badge, updated monthly, is granted to top 1000 reviewers, which currently corresponds to few hundred reviews.

I track those with over 500 user comments and all of them have it. If I had to guess I'd say you are not too far away from being one of the 1000.

Thanks for your reply. Does those 500 user comments include starting threads too and is it at the start of each month that it is updated?

Thanks again for your help.

Jackson,
No, the "top reviewer" badge does not include message board posts in their count...and I did not mention 500 as a trigger point, just that I looked at people who have more than 500 reviews and they all had it - and I guess there is only about 100-150 of those users, so you are clearly approaching the base of the pack that have this little badge.

In terms of the point in the month it is updated, this is not stated so i cannot say....

What page are your user comments on?

Sorry my mistake. Thanks for clearing that up.


Do you mean how many pages are in my posting history? Then it is 16

Reviewers don't know anything apart from the fact that they have the badge and occasionally, user ACT-1 tells us who's got the top number of written reviews. But there's no ranking published, no way to know where 5000, 2000, 1500, 1000 or 500 stands in that current Top 1000...
Reviews aren't even considered data to begin with...

So all you have to do is "aim for the 500" but don't insist on it, just keep writing, if you focus too much on the badge, it'll affect your writing... I hate the way they allowed short reviews now, anyone can get to 1000 pretty quickly if all  the  reviews consists on one or two sentences. Anyone can get the badge now, but earning it is different.

Good luck!
