Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

I volunteered so that I could attain documentation that will cover my Community Service obligations, and my service has been approved by the court. My question is are the hours counted by "Total Edits" or "Unique Points." I read the other post regarding volunteer documentation that says editing takes from 10-15 minutes per point, so I am basing my figures on 12.5 minutes times number of points, and then dividing by 60 minutes. Would this be correct?

Great question. Yes, you are correct, you can take 12.5 (as an average time per point), multiply by the number of points you've edited, and divide by 60.

Example: (12.5 mins x 45 edits) / 60 = 9.4 hours editing time

It is up to your discretion whether or not you include total edits or just unique points. If you've edited a point multiple times (because you made a mistake or because you learned new information that justified an update) and you know that each update you made took around 10-15 minutes, then counting total edits is justified. If you just opened a point you had already edited and clicked saved (which only takes a few seconds), then it is probably better to just count unique points.
