Where can I see how many posts have I edited?

Is there a way to see how many edits I've made? In other words: I'd like to see how close I am to getting the Strunk & White badge.

  • In other news, you've made at least 35 edits, but the total number will forever remain anonymous. Commented Jul 27, 2009 at 16:43

It's possible we will make an exception for edits, since we view editing as so crucial and fundamental to how Stack Overflow works.

    Does that mean we will be seeing number of edits in our profile soon?

You can use data dump to see how much entries was last edited by you with this query:

select count(*) from posts where LastEditorUserId = <id>

It will less than the real number and has the actuality of the first day of the month.


There's a Data Explorer query for that. Unfortunately, the data is not completely current. But, it gives you a better platform for estimating.

  • @PareshMayani This means you already have the badge!

Jeff has stated that the badge system was designed around the xBox-live badge system. And it is intentional that you don't know when you're about to receive a badge, it simply shows up unexpectedly. So currently, at least through the SO engine, there is no way to know how many edits you have made.

    Sorry, but I selfishly prefer Jeff's answer :) Also I've never played xBox so I was unaware that badges are a surprise in it.
