Maybe certain edits were understated because some people like to finalize a page first and repeatedly check in the preview before saving. I mean, I know people who save each time they add one sentence on a page, and then there are people who fill up an entire page from scratch with 30+ equipment pics & descriptions, triple-check at the preview page, and then clean up codes before pressing the save button.

I have a feeling the field you are using is not a true measure of contributions. For example. Making a new page does not add to this number. Nor does moving a page or deleting it- not sure about adding an image. Making a new page being the major one IMO.
I'm pretty sure this number purely counts the amount of times you've actually gone in to an existing page, changed something and pressed submit.

I concur, I only edited a talk page and received two edits for it. This is not really a great measurement of contribution because it follows the quantitive value of edits not the qualitative value of contributions, it is like, marks, it is not measuring the understanding or knowledge of that area or skills, but rather what fulfillment of the criteria is overlooked.

Someone could edit 20,000 times but only contribute 2,500KB of bad content that needs to be revised.

The number of edits are shown here. It does not include moves, deleting or restoration of a page. Also it doesn't include uploading a new version of an image.

Edit: OMG I have 12,288 wiki edits

Just like post count doesn't qualify against meaningful posts and spam; yet it's still displayed. Think of it as the "post count" for the wiki. It doesn't have any bearing on anything as the sysops make the ultimate decision for VIP/other recognition.

Yeah, I noticed that the number of edits doesn't match the number of contributions.

But I still like it =o

Just curious, but what is the difference between contributions and wiki edits?

Contributions :

[Made an entire article that is relevant]
[Made a wiki bot]
[Imported 300 + Images]
[Revised many articles to improve on it]

Wiki edit :

The thng is that (b)seven(/b) is the higehst.

[edit 1]
The thing is that seven is the highest you can fortfy.

[edit 2]
The objective of the blacksmith game is to fortify an equipment or piece of item using stones to the strongest possible result.

It's the same thing. However, people may contribute without editing the wiki themselves by making new threads and letting people know about any new or missing information. Then they (people who edit stuff regularly) will be add the info to the wiki, that's what contributing means =) You can also learn how to and go right to editing information yourself. We have people who are willing to help if you need any.

Not really, I could make 1000 edits, but they could be all minor, and thus aren't as contributive as opposed to writing out 200 well-written articles by myself.

We never simply base things off numbers, so really, there doesn't need to be any argument about it.

However, the contributions part mainly applies forum wise (because it mentions it as something else, as compared to wiki edits). Stuff like writing exceptionally helpful guides and such. +_+; Of course, it's not just limited to guide making, but you understand the point.
