I recently have gone over the required editing of 80 posts to get the badge "Strunk & White".

However, as of this time I haven't been awarded the badge. Is there a additional requirements for this badge, or do certain badges get awarded at certain time intervals, or are they moderated/approved before awarded?

Or is it simply an error?

Just curious to understand how it works behind the scenes.

When I earned it it took a couple hours to show up. – Kevin Nov 29 '11 at 18:50

This is probably it. When was the last edit you made (the one that should've gotten you the badge)?

About 45 minutes ago. – Brian Deragon Nov 29 '11 at 18:30
I'd give it a little more time – juan Nov 29 '11 at 18:36

Not every edit counts towards these editing badges. For example look here to estimate your badge progress and find out what does and what does not count:

How do I estimate Strunk & White progress?

It says on my Review page though that I've made 90, and 112% done? – Brian Deragon Nov 29 '11 at 18:43
@Brian, on your "review" page? What's that? What does tell you the query I posted in the link? 1) be sure to use Matthew Read's query, because the other query is wrong! 2) this query is for stackoverflow only. – Tomas Nov 29 '11 at 18:48
it clicked in must have been timed – Brian Deragon Nov 29 '11 at 20:05
@TomasT. I think he means as in – Jason Plank Nov 29 '11 at 20:16
@Brian, maybe my english is not so good but I can neither understand nor even parse your last comment... – Tomas Nov 29 '11 at 21:01
Sorry Tomas, it must have been a badge thats awarded on a timed interval, as I just got the badge a little over an hour ago, without doing anything extra. – Brian Deragon Nov 29 '11 at 21:08
