What determines whether someone is credited with a question?

Check if they are MathWorks staff. If they are, then they may have edited the question.
(That's the only situation I've seen so far -- someone who I know for sure had been editing questions.)

Currently if someone edits a question or answer that question or answer will show up on their profile page (only MathWorkers can edit questions and answers--for now).
This is wrong in two ways :-)
First, it makes the list of questions that someone asked inaccurate, as the question indicates. My profile page makes it look like I've asked four questions, when in fact I've asked none but edited four.
Second, the current behavior is confusing because we don't indicate when someone edited a question or answer.
We're working on both problems; thanks for your patience and feedback!
