On the Review page, if I check my progress towards Copy Editor badge, it shows 3/500. However, I've already been awarded Research Assistant, as well as Strunk & White for editing tag wikis [this is on B&CG].

Why aren't tag wiki edits counted in the Copy Editor badge progress bar?

    Ah. This might explain why I've got the badge on Programmers despite being about 20 edits short according to the progress bar.

  • I had reported this on CogSci as well. I think the backend portion has been fixed, but they may still be working on the progress bar.

This is fixed now. All edits to tag wikis and tag wiki excerpts are now counted, regardless of whether or not you are considered the owner of the tag wiki/excerpt.

See this answer on Cognitive Sciences Meta for a little more info.

  • You're right - seems to be working fine now. Thanks for the answer.
