I already commented on this issue in this question. Compare all time number edits in stats.SE and the number of strunk and white badges awarded. 16 people should have been awarded the badge, but only 5 are awarded. So it seems that reported number of edits possibly includes self-edits. Am I right? If it is so, is it feasible to include them? If it is not so, what kind of edits are included?

at the current moment it seems that the self-edits are included, so my question stands. Why self-edits should be included? –  mpiktas Mar 23 '11 at 21:14
I noticed this as well. I think it counts self-edits, which I agree shouldn't be included. –  chrisaycock Apr 11 '11 at 21:10

The only difference between the count used for strunk & white and the count on the editors tab is that the one in the editors tab also counts posts that were simply retagged.

So the count is higher.

I have mixed feelings about fixing this. I am tempted to leave as is cause you already get strunk & white progress in /review

Let me know how you feel about it in comments, can be swayed either way.
