Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

SEDE Query 1
SEDE Query 2

These two queries seem to imply that for an edit to count against the Strunk and White badge or the Copy Editor badge, one needs to be the most recent editor.

However, the badge descriptions, which are Edited 100/600 entries, imply that one only has to be an editor, but not necessarily the most recent.

Are the two queries correct, or do edited edits count?

Yeah your queries are not going to be accurate, the data dump does not contain Post History.

We look at the Post History table for these badges.
