What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Is there any limit beyond which the oldest edits are cleaned off automatically from Stack Overflow's database?

@Lix yeah I realized that after I commented. I was just in a hurry to point out the most heavily revised post. Incidentally this meta.so post has 328 –  Some Helpful Commenter Jul 12 '12 at 14:53

You could conceivably make some number of edits (rate limited) under the 5 minute mark which would all be coalesced into one edit. In this case, whatever that N may be, you could make more physical edits than we would be aware of. –  user7116 Jul 12 '12 at 14:55

As far as I know there is no limit to the number of edits that can be made to a post.

However, if you make too many then the post converts to community wiki and you'll no longer get any reputation changes from votes on the post.
