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
<gmaxwell> It would need coding changes, yes.
<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?
