Description Mike.lifeguard 2008-07-05 18:25:01 UTC
Currently when autoconfirmed is determined, it is based on edit count (or not, depending) and time since registration. Please implement a way to have the time be calculated since the first edit, not registration.

Some discussion about this:

	<gmaxwell>	Mike_lifeguard, what you really should want is the n-day counter to start from the first edit and not account creation...
	<SB_Johnny>	gmaxwell: wow, wish I had thought of that :)
	<Mike_lifeguard>	oh sure - can that be done (without coding changes?)
	<gmaxwell>	otherwise they can just make their 1 edit seconds before the page moves, etc begin..
	<Mike_lifeguard>	I thought not
	<Mike_lifeguard>	exactly
	<gmaxwell>	It would need coding changes, yes.
	<Mike_lifeguard>	:(
	<gmaxwell>	but it should be done.
	<Mike_lifeguard>	but that'd be amazing! it would be very very effective against sleepers, and wouldn't affect legitimate users
	<gmaxwell>	well it would screw with users whos only editing desire is editing a single semi-protected page. ;)
	<gmaxwell>	but ::shrugs:: they can hit the talk page. ;)

Made possible in r45365

Why not use MIN(rev_timestamp) here rather than the order/limit thing?
