I seem to be having a problem with my tag wiki edits registering in the system. If I go to edit any badge, the page states that I have completed 3 tag wiki edits

3 tag wiki edits

However, when I go to view my reputation page, I have more tag wiki edits than that

6 tag wiki edits

The edits were done on March 5th, March 18th, and today. So I don't think there is a problem with time, except for the one for today.

  • Perhaps one of the counts doesn't consider the excerpt to be a distinct edit. Mar 29, 2013 at 3:05
  • The excerpt doesn't count. Jan 27, 2014 at 22:48

This is a count of the number of tags you edited. So if you edited both the excerpt and body of one tag, it only counts as one tag edit into the Research Assistant badge.

    Excerpts don't count for Research Assistant, only full tag-wiki edits. (Learned that the hard way on another site.) Apr 15, 2013 at 17:58
  • @MonicaCellio Then how did I get any progress at all? Apr 15, 2013 at 21:54
  • The one that's not an excerpt would count. I can't see your screenshots here at work (thanks IT); are you saying that you've only done one tag wiki but you have credit for more than one? Apr 15, 2013 at 22:05
  • I'm saying I have done 7 but I have credit for 3 Apr 15, 2013 at 23:58
