Description Filip Maljkovic [Dungodung] 2007-07-06 14:55:05 UTC
The user_editcount table seems to be broken. If I compare the edit counts of myself and my bot on sr: wiki (courtesy of the toolserver) using two different methods (old with count(*) and new with user_editcount), I'm getting very different results.

mysql> SELECT COUNT(*) FROM revision, page WHERE rev_user_text= 'Dungodung' AND rev_page = page_id;
+----------+
| COUNT(*) |
+----------+
|    25103 | 
+----------+
1 row in set (2.28 sec)

mysql> SELECT user_editcount FROM user WHERE user_name = 'Dungodung';
+----------------+
| user_editcount |
+----------------+
|          24927 | 
+----------------+
1 row in set (0.03 sec)

mysql> SELECT COUNT(*) FROM revision, page WHERE rev_user_text= 'FelixBot' AND rev_page = page_id;
+----------+
| COUNT(*) |
+----------+
|   121244 | 
+----------+
1 row in set (3.99 sec)

mysql> SELECT user_editcount FROM user WHERE user_name = 'FelixBot';
+----------------+
| user_editcount |
+----------------+
|         120610 | 
+----------------+
1 row in set (0.01 sec)

user_editcount counts edits you make even if they have been deleted.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-07-06 17:53:09 UTC
Then why is COUNT(*) *higher*?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-07-06 21:56:18 UTC
Imports? Special null edits? Other various activity that's not directly counted?

user_editcount is for heuristic purposes to measure account usage, it is not an exact counter of currently-present revisions. For that, more detailed breakdowns are expected to be wanted anyway.
