I was wondering if there is a way to know how many posts I have edited till date. This question arose because I saw that there is a badge for editing $80$ posts and I do not have that badge and I think I have edited that many posts.


EDIT: Lest it be misunderstood that I edit only for badges, let me point out that I was not aware of the existence of this badge till today. After I saw the badge, I thought I have probably edited that many posts to have earned that badge and hence was curious.

  • $\begingroup$ Here (search for "strunk" to quickly find the badge), it is stated that edits on deleted posts; your own posts; consisting only of tag changes, do not count. Every post counts at most once towards this badge. // Also, if you hover over your number of reviews in a review queue, you see your progress to the "Copy Editor" badge, i.e. the number of edits that the system has registered. $\endgroup$ – Lord_Farin Sep 28 '13 at 7:39

    $\begingroup$ We have a related question on this iste. There is a post on meta.SO about possibilities to find out, what is your progress towards various badges: Badge progress reports. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Sep 28 '13 at 8:11

Go to any review queue and then move your mouse pointer over the badge progress bar. After a moment, you will get a box with several progress bars. At the "copy editor" bar, you see your number of edits.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the answer. I came to know it from Lord_Farin's comment. $\endgroup$ – Vishal Gupta Sep 28 '13 at 8:06
  • $\begingroup$ Much better than my answer. (Always forget about the review queues.) $\endgroup$ – user642796 Sep 28 '13 at 8:13

Note: I highly discourage people from making edits just to gain badges.

There there are at least two data.stackexchange queries that (might) help you keep track of this:

    $\begingroup$ I did not say that I made edits just to get badge. As I said, I only became aware that there is a badge for that today. And then I felt, I have probably edited that many posts. It is unfortunate that it has been felt that I have been editing to earn a badge. $\endgroup$ – Vishal Gupta Sep 28 '13 at 7:57

    $\begingroup$ @Vishal: I don't assume that you are just going for badges. But there are users out there who do act in a manner to maximize badges as opposed to improve the site. $\endgroup$ – user642796 Sep 28 '13 at 8:14
