I checked the
Users > Editor > All tab, and learnt that I have made 889 edits so far. "Copy Editor" badge is given after 500 edits, but I did not receive it. What could be the problem here?
There are.. certain requirements which count for "edits"
- does not include edits to your own posts
- does not include edits to tags
- community-wiki posts are eligible
- tag wiki posts are eligible
- only edits to title and body count towards the S&W/Copy Editor badges
The query mentions that you still need to do about ~80***** more edits to get the badge.
***** although the query mentions you need 213 edits, the query relies on the previous requirement of 600 edits, so I shaved off 100 to get 113 edits. Considering that the SEDE relies on datadumps which are out of date and need not necessarily hold the required information, I removed 50 more edits, giving an approximate number. The actual required number might be higher/lower
