Is it a fallacy to state your rank in an arguement

I'm X rank and you're Y rank you're a lot lower then me so I know more then you, This is a really basic and easy concept to understand, I don't get why people assume this is appeal to authority, because there's relevancy that Rank = Skill. Appeal to authority only applies to irrelevant authority.
