Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The "Strunk & White" badge is received after editing 80 posts. According to this, I would like to ask a question. Do retags count? And where to check the total edit count?

No, they don't. See List of all badges with full descriptions; from the Strunk & White entry:

Perform a total of 500 edits between questions, answers and tag wikis

  • Edits on deleted posts do not count
  • Edits to your own posts do not count
  • Edits to CW posts do count
  • Edits that consist only of tag changes do not count
  • Tag wiki edits do count
  • Edits you suggest before gaining full edit privileges do count, once approved

(emphasis mine).

You can use the old review UI to track your Strunk & White progress.
