For some time now, the progress towards the Copy Editor Badge is being displayed at https://stackoverflow.com/review/

I guess a screenshot tells the whole story:

Contradictory Copy Editor progress

Red emphasis mine. The text proclaims a target of 400 edits, while the mouseover claims 500. Which will it be?

I can only report on SO as I don't have enough edits on other sites to see the Copy Editor countdown, but other sites are probably affected, too.


That's the number of edits you've made, not the number you require. I see this:

    Oh. Now I feel stupid. I wasn't aware I had edited that many posts already. I guess I can delete this post. Sorry for the noise. – Erwin Brandstetter Jan 20 '12 at 1:30

    @erwin Don't delete it. It's fine, and could help someone later. Besides, we've all asked halfway silly questions now and again. – Andrew Barber Jan 20 '12 at 1:52
