Q. What rank type is being tracked through the promotion?
A. Paid rank is what the promotion tracks. Recognized rank is not tracked with this promotion because that wouldn't account for those who advance in December (as they would have to have an additional 3 months to be recognized at a new rank).

A. A Participant's "Current Commission Structure" includes anyone in that member's downline off whom the member receives commissions. This includes both those in the member's unilevels and generations.
Q. Will my upline and I be receiving points from the same downline members? How can I win the contest when my upline is receiving the same downline rank advancement points I receive?
A. First, keep in mind that you are competing against your paid rank as of June. If a leader above you is of a different rank, you are not competing with that leader. If an upline leader is of the same rank as you, the best way to compete is to maximize your unilevel and generations to your unique advantage. Keep in mind: Your upline does not have the same unilevel as you (you get an extra line) and also does not have access to your full generations either (unless they are higher rank, in which case, you aren’t directly competing with them).
Q. Are points generated for July 2018’s rank advancements?
A. Yes! As your Baseline Rank began in June, rank advancements from then on through 31 December 2018 at 11:59 pm (Mountain Time) will generate points; July is included in that.

A. The Leader Board will go live on 20 August (Mountain Time).
