My question is pretty straightforward... Does editing your own posts increase your edited posts count? I don't think so, but I couldn't find an answer anywhere.


No, editing your own posts does not increase your "edit count" as used to determine eligibility for badges such as Strunk & White or Copy Editor.

Jeff gives the official answer here:

  • does not include edits to your own posts
  • does not include edits to tags
  • community-wiki posts are eligible
  • tag wiki posts are eligible

only edits to title and body count towards the S&W/Copy Editor badges
