Description RS 2007-09-11 14:25:29 UTC
Hello! I am RS1900. I am a Wikipedian. I changes my name from RS2007 to RS1900. However, some of my edits are still allocated to the older user name. Can you do some thing about it? I want all my edits to be allocated to my new user name. Thank you.

At the moment, the old edits are being updated via the job queue. This is a poor idea, and I've objected to updating the `revision` table in this manner in the past, but no-one cares.

Re-assigning edits is a low priority background task, part of the rest of job queue. They should all be moved over at most in the next few days. Usually it only takes long if the job runners are borked/stalled.
