I recently have gone over the required editing of 80 posts to get the badge "Strunk & White".

However, as of this time I haven't been awarded the badge. Is there a additional requirements for this badge, or do certain badges get awarded at certain time intervals, or are they moderated/approved before awarded?

Or is it simply an error?

Just curious to understand how it works behind the scenes.

This is probably it. When was the last edit you made (the one that should've gotten you the badge)?

Not every edit counts towards these editing badges. For example look here to estimate your badge progress and find out what does and what does not count:

How do I estimate Strunk & White progress?

  • It says on my Review page though that I've made 90, and 112% done? Nov 29, 2011 at 18:43
  • @Brian, on your "review" page? What's that? What does tell you the query I posted in the link? 1) be sure to use Matthew Read's query, because the other query is wrong! 2) this query is for stackoverflow only.

  • Sorry Tomas, it must have been a badge thats awarded on a timed interval, as I just got the badge a little over an hour ago, without doing anything extra. Nov 29, 2011 at 21:08
