I've found here many queries to check edit counts, and I get different results for each one. Which one is the most accurate and up-to-date query? Or is there any way to see the edit count in stats?

Yes, there certainly is a place where you can check this:

  1. Click on the "Users" tab in the main navigation bar.
  2. Click on the "editors" tab.
  3. Select the "all" filter.
  4. Search for your user name.

When you see your account listed, look at the fourth line, which will tell you the total number of posts that you have edited. For example, mine shows that I've edited 3,465 posts on Stack Overflow:


I would have checked the stats for your account, but I see that you haven't associated your account here on Meta with your account on Stack Overflow.

However, do note that the number reported here is showing all of your edits, including those made to your own posts and multiple edits to the same post. It is therefore not a very good measure of one's eligibility for badges such as Strunk & White or Copy Editor, but it does provide a general idea.

I have found if you go to one of the review pages, you can hover over the bar next to stats, for example



You can also access this page directly
