I don't mind, it's just a fact.
It's easily reachable... I've only been here about 8 months and am less than 20,000 edits away from 200,000... I'll get there sometime soon...
Honestly I have no idea how you have done it. I've been doing this for about 4 months now (half as long as you) and I'm barely over 33k and have touched just about every road/segment primary and higher in this county. I've got a couple of little projects like fixing all the exit ramp names for the parkways but I'm running out of major things to take care of in my AM space.
Most of it has been going town by town around the state of CT and properly typing roads... When I do that, I go segment by segment and check directionality, connectivity, turn restrictions, delete unnecessary roads. As well as cleaning up URs & Problem reports as they come in (usually within 24 hours, 48 hours tops).
Some towns take 20 minutes to do, others can take 3 hours to do proper road typing on (like the one I just finished working on now).
I also drive a lot at work - office to a new location every day & back again averaging between 1500 & 2000 miles a month on top of my commute to & from work. I also work very early (3am), so I get to report overnight construction zones that no one else has. Because I go in early, I get out early, so I'm editing by noon every day. Having the best & most updated map benefits me directly at work, so I'm invested in spending a lot of time editing. And what am I going to do in the afternoon when all my friends are still at work (beside making fun of them)?
