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 counter says that there are 0 pending edits while there is actually 1 pending edit according the title. It was this question. I could just open and review it. It's maybe related to the fact that this is the 2nd suggested edit by the same user.

Update as per Michael Mrozek's answer it turns out to be the amount of approvals on the edit: can't the title be little expanded? E.g. "This edit has n approvals" which would in turn make the (0) part more sense (it initially didn't make sense to me).

That number appears to actually be the number of votes the edit has (approvals and rejections); so (0) means there's a suggested edit with no votes, (1) means there's a suggested edit with one vote (either approved or rejected), and (2) means the suggested edit has one approve vote and one reject vote (since it only takes two in one category to take effect). A suggested edit blocks further edits, so there can never be multiple edits in the queue for a single post

@BalusC I said exactly the opposite about a week ago in a comment; I thought it was edits in the queue too. Unfortunately now I can't find that comment anymore to correct it – Michael Mrozek Feb 4 '11 at 20:12
I turned the bug report into a feature request wrt the title, it would otherwise be an utterly useless question. Glad to see that I'm not the only one who initially interpreted it differently though. – BalusC Feb 4 '11 at 20:18

Actually it is a bit more subtle, the number represents the total score.

You may see 1, 0 or -1 on Stack Overflow. 1 means that one person approve, 0 could mean that one approved and one rejected. -1 means that one person rejected.

I fixed it so it counts total votes and shows what happened in the tooltip.

Fix confirmed. That's indeed more clear now. Thanks! – BalusC Feb 9 '11 at 11:08
I didn't realize this was the intended behavior; it doesn't seem to work. I see the number of votes, like I just voted to reject an edit so the link says edit (1). Yesterday I saw one where there was one vote to approve and one vote to reject, and it said edit (2) – Michael Mrozek Feb 11 '11 at 1:28
@Michael sorry I forgot to strike out the old way it worked – waffles Feb 11 '11 at 1:31
