Congratulations, it certainly is a record. And as long as you edit productively (eg not intentionally making what would normally be one edit several edits, not making unnecessary edits) I have nothing against you coming near my #1 spot. But I still have more than 4 times as many edits as you do ;) (which don't count because many of them were made before we enabled the badges).
And congratulations for now getting you Lucky badge! Have fun editing!
I would also like to offer my congratulations! This is definetly a record! I came home and looked at the wiki expecting to see a normal day's worth of activity, and then I saw what seemed to be several weeks' worth of activity condensed into one day. It will probably take me a few more months to get as many badges and edits as you have now, and I might never get the Caffeinated badge at all. I know that Tnuy got the Lucky 5000th edit less than a month ago, and now we are already at 1000 more edits!
Also, I did notice and appreciate your answer to my question in the Questions Discussion, but I decided not to reply. I think that the Questions Discussion should be left free of all replies except for questions and answers if possible.
Thanks! I had only been trying to get the Caffeinated badge, but after I discovered the almost-empty Males category, I just kept on going. I was also really surprised to get the 600th edit badge. It took eight and a half months from the badges being activated to reach the 5000th edit, and then less than three weeks for the next 1000! I guess it's because you, Tnuy and I all started editing at roughly the same time.

Just wanted to show you the numbers that very much support The Strange Traveler's impression. Compare the numbers of the 11/12th of December with the average edits in November. (Sometimes the statistics tool does a few bizarre things (like showing 0 edits), but the best week we ever had was somewhat over 8.5k. 7k is a good week with everyone editing (5 people!) regulary.)
Yes, they are admin-only (at least it says so on Community Central and I can't access them anywhere else or edit anything), I don't know why. As I said, they are a bit weird sometimes. I not even know what the views actually mean and how this is calculated. I guess there is the small number of normal people looking something up on the wiki. Then there's us. And then there's Google's search engine bots that visit the wiki and I guess that they come round more often when much is changing in the wiki and also the higher your website appears in the rankings. And the Google bots usually come around regularly and every day, at least one of us is on the wiki, so I guess that 0 is a wrong number.
Make sure you get the right date, the one on the link is from October. Enter today's date now and you'll get today's WAM and you can go back to just 2012 I think. You can also see the general score of the wiki, or the vertical one in the books category.
It wouldn't let me see today's score, but I put in yesterday's. Since the 12th of October (2 months) we've climbed more than 1100 spots overall, and more than 70 in the books category! That's really cool!
