An edit is a change or revision made by a user to a page in any namespace of a Wikimedia project. When an edit is successfully saved, it is assigned a unique revision ID, which can be used to reference a specific version of a page in its revision history.
- The action of creating a new page is considered as the first edit to that page.
- A revert – as an action which entirely or partially removes the result of a previous edit in a wiki – is considered as an edit.
- Unless otherwise specified, an edit is counted regardless of whether it is later reverted, deleted/oversighted, or if the parent page gets deleted.
