I have 113 edit suggestions (81 approved and 32 edit rejected). However, when I check my badge progress in the review page, it says I have edited 80 posts. Why is this number not equal to the amount of edit suggestions approved (i.e. 81)?

  • Is it possible you edited the same post twice somewhere? – animuson ModStaff Jan 14 '12 at 0:30
  • I do not think so. I try to edit each post once. Thank you for your comment – julianfperez Jan 14 '12 at 0:36
  • Can you post the URL to find the "badge progress" page? I've looked through yours (and mine) and can't find one... :) – sarnold Jan 14 '12 at 23:07
  • Your badge progress appears in your review page since the time you get "Strunk & White" badge. – julianfperez Jan 15 '12 at 11:27

Many statistics on the StackExchange family of sites are cached to reduce server contention. I'd wager badge progress pages aren't updated off most-recent data -- if only because I've sometimes been awarded badges hours after the corresponding event.

If it hasn't updated by the next day (check now, actually, the date has rolled over since you asked) then it might be more cause for concern.

In general, the sites converge towards correct over time -- you'll get the badges you earn eventually, even if it doesn't happen the second you submit the final required edit suggestion.

  • Thank you for your answer. I have checked my review statistics are unchanged. I have just remembered I edited a question which was closed. Can this be the source of my problem? – julianfperez Jan 14 '12 at 10:52
