This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Did you make 14 edits in less than a day? And also, 291-9 = 282 might not help either. –  muntoo Jan 27 '12 at 1:44
    
BTW, can you give us a link to the place you took your first picture? I never knew about this... –  muntoo Jan 27 '12 at 1:46
    
@muntoo It's possible I might have, I've been spending an obscene amount time on SO lately so I wouldn't be surprised. –  Marvin Pinto Jan 27 '12 at 1:47
    
@muntoo: That appears on the right side of the review panel (unless you have it already). –  animuson Jan 27 '12 at 1:47
    
@animuson Already have it. I suppose I shouldn't be too sad. *Sob.* :( –  muntoo Jan 27 '12 at 1:49
    
I don't remember 100% for sure, but I'm pretty sure the number for badge progress is cached, and only updates when the check to see if you've gained the badge is run. –  animuson Jan 27 '12 at 1:53
    
@animuson The weird part is that the badge counter updates just fine. For example, I just got another edit approved and both the counters increased as they should. –  Marvin Pinto Jan 27 '12 at 1:55

@Marvin: Here you go. - The missing edits probably fall under one of the categories that don't count, in Jeff's answer. Most likely you made some edits which only retagged the question. –  animuson Jan 27 '12 at 1:57
    
@animuson Hmm.. possibly. There's no way I'm going back into my edit history to verify this so that sounds like a good enough answer to me. Losing 14 edits isn't a big deal, I was more curious than anything. Care to post that as the answer? –  Marvin Pinto Jan 27 '12 at 2:01

My query here might help you determine which of your edits aren't being counted if you modify it to return ones that aren't in the edit types it uses: meta.stackexchange.com/a/106070/154510 –  Matthew Read Jan 27 '12 at 2:07
    
@MatthewRead Another weird thing is that I can't seem to run SEDE queries for my user ID. Probably has something to do with not being here that long.. who knows. –  Marvin Pinto Jan 27 '12 at 2:11
    
Ah yes, the data dump is only every month or two so new new users won't see anything. –  Matthew Read Jan 27 '12 at 2:14
    
@MatthewRead: I wish there was a query that listed all the edits you've made and whether they counted or not. –  animuson Jan 27 '12 at 4:26

In addition to all of the above in the comments (e.g., perhaps there was a situation where you only edited the tags on the post), there are times where, despite yours being a great edit, the question is just too far off topic and ends up closed and deleted. Unfortunately, edits on deleted posts do not count towards the Copy Editor badge.

Also, I believe edits will not count if you have edited the same post twice for some reason.
