I'm curious about how many answers & questions I've edited, and wondering why there is no integrated counter in the SO website! I searched and found many previous Q&As like: How many posts have I edited so far? but when I try to find my counter, I don't get any data!

E.g: I used the progress-towards-editor-badges query, but this is the result I got after entering my ID 1358670:

Edits needed to earn Editor badge Edits needed to earn Strunk & White badge Edits needed to earn Copy Editor badge 
--------------------------------- ----------------------------------------- -------------------------------------- 
1                                 100                                       600                                    

(1 row(s) affected)

Does anybody have an idea? Perhaps I'm doing something wrong!

    Just a friendly tip for the future: Consider using less exclamation points (!) in your text. It looks like you're shouting, or you're angry (I realise neither of those are actually true, but appearances do matter). Just type in a calm, sedate manner. =)

Its returning correct result because it returns counts of the number of title and/or body revisions you've made on other people's non-deleted posts.

You can verify here

  • I haven't really understand why it should give me 0 edits, I'm pretty sure I edited many posts, and the solution here worked for me now and gave 6 edits while queries still gave me 0, which one of them is correct ? and which one is counted in rewarding badges ? Commented Mar 4, 2013 at 13:10
  • as I written queries result is for non-deleted post may be u edited the post gets deleted Commented Mar 4, 2013 at 13:11

    @AbuRomaïssae the data in Data Explorer is old, I think that at least a month so you won't see any new edits you make. Commented Mar 4, 2013 at 13:12
