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

This question already has an answer here:

I went to Activity->Revisions in the reputation panel, and I see 82 revisions but still no Strunk & White badge. Is there special considerations on the edit count? Is a revision an edit?

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.

Edit on your own post doesn't count, IIRC. And please wait at least a day for the badge script to run. – nhahtdh Mar 18 '13 at 19:31

You need to have made edits to posts that are not your own, and only one edit per unique post counts.

You can see your progress by visiting the suggested edits statistics page, then hover over the progress bar at the top right:

to expand it to reveal a set of three more:

For the Strunk & White silver badge, look at the Copy Editor progress bar; you'll receive it when that indicates you've edited 80 posts.

Your revisions list on your profile counts multiple edits to the same post, as well as edits to your own, making it a poor indicator of your progress.
