The badges have never been of great interest to me, but I do still kinda like having them and I tend to speed up on a particular badge when I am near to achieving it!
I have wondered why some people seem to get more badges than others who seem to put in as much work and it came to me today!
If you focus on just writing stuff and editing stuff, then you will get edits towards an edit badge, but if you do other things, such as add pix, they also count as an edit! Da!
For anyone sad enough to care, I reckon a precious random 1000th Edit Badge is due soon!
