Is the number of edits at https://stackoverflow.com/users?tab=editors&filter=all the one that counts the edits relevant for gaining the Strunk & White and Copy Editor badges? (If not, wouldn't it be nice to have it that way? There's no reason for two different edit counts named the same.)
Nope, they're not the same, for two reasons:
- The badge is intended to exclude specific (the trivial ones, mostly) edits, though there's no reason to exclude those counts for general recognition of those users on the
- Performance would greatly suffer if we had to do the same checks as the badge did for all users every time that query did a re-sort, so it's partially for performance as well.
No, the edit count shown on "Editors" tab could be different, I think it also includes "retags". To get an edit count that are eligible for "Strunk & White" badge, try running this query on data.stackexchange.com. Note, data.SE will not give you the latest count as the data is dumped every month:
SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT RevisionGUID) FROM PostHistory WHERE UserId = <YourUserId> AND PostHistoryTypeId IN (4,5) -- 4 and 5 are post title and post body
"Strunk & White" is for those users who try to fix spellings and grammar of question titles and body.
