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

Maybe it's just a one-off. One SF user currently with 392 rep has earned all 3 editor badges. I can overlook Editor, a little less willing for Strunk & White, but Copy Editor? Even with edit approvals in place that seems like a stretch.

This query on Odata even says 211 edits left.
This one says 211 as well (600-389).

Or am I overlooking something?

Don't both of those queries use the LastEditor field, which isn't exactly accurate for the badge? – Grace Note Feb 4 '11 at 20:37
@Grace: yes, good point. Still... Just seemed odd that such a low rep user on SF would have that many edits. But again, I could just be off base! – squillman Feb 4 '11 at 20:39
Actually... you're not the first to try and report Peter Mortenson's SF account. He's very, very prolific in his edits, and thanks to Community Wiki he actually had this badge loooong before the suggested edits system. – Grace Note Feb 4 '11 at 20:44
@Grace: Ah, yes. CW... duh. Post that as an answer and I'll accept, and we can also close as a dupe of Pekka's question. – squillman Feb 4 '11 at 20:46
I'm normally fairly hesitant about leaving an answer to a question that I have voted to close as a duplicate, especially since my answer (deleted, already) is pretty much the same as Pekka's, just a bit more elaborate and theatrical. – Grace Note Feb 4 '11 at 20:48
@squillman going through the activity history every edit I clicked on was for a Community Wiki post. However this post states that CW edits are not eligible...? There are also a number of minor repeat edits on the same posts. – dave.c Feb 4 '11 at 20:49
@Grace fair enough! – squillman Feb 4 '11 at 20:50
@dave The "CW doesn't count" was a guess that was edited in, not an official statement, complete with a "rollback if I'm wrong" edit summary. I've always myself stated that CW edits do count, because Community Wiki status hasn't directly affected badges. – Grace Note Feb 4 '11 at 20:51
@Grace Note ok, good to know. I guess this case proves they do count – dave.c Feb 4 '11 at 20:52

This odata query satisfies me that it's not a bug:

select count(*)
from PostHistory
where userid=5144
and posthistorytypeid in (4,5,7,8)

Assuming that CW edits count toward the total.
