    It depends in part on the ratings of the reviewers.

    (Using random numbers)

    5 very highly rated reviewers may be the equivalent of 25 medium or high rated reviewers.

    In the old G+ OPR community, they confirmed that there were more internal rating levels for reviewers, and that the difference in someone's rating had different levels of effect over portal reviews, and how much a portal may need.

    One other example was that a very highly rated reviewer disagreeing with a lot of average reviewers may delay a portal's result.
