Description Meno25 2008-05-22 05:35:01 UTC
If a user renames himself not all his contributions are moved under the new username. See the provided URL for an example.
Comment 1 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-22 05:42:13 UTC
That link doesn't really explain anything ;)

What are the edits that were not renamed? What was the users edit count?
Comment 2 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-22 05:45:34 UTC
16,368 it seems. Sounds like jobqueue lag. Wait a while, for the others to finish.
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-22 05:56:06 UTC
OK, so that link is the old name.

Anyway, reopening, since the queue is pretty much empty atm.
Comment 4 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-22 06:19:08 UTC
Can't reproduce this on testwiki.
Comment 5 Meno25 2008-05-22 22:51:13 UTC
All logs and deleted edits were migrated to the new name. The remaining edits (58 edits) are redirects and log edits created automatically while moving pages from the userspace of the old name to the userspace of the new name. My request here is to tweak renameuser.php to make it handle self renames more gracefully, or more specifically: Make sure that redirects and log edits created automatically while moving pages from the old userspace to new one are all attributed to new name when a user renames himself.

Thank you, Aaron.

May be this requires renaming of an account with a large number of edits.
Comment 6 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-22 22:52:21 UTC
OK, that makes a lot of sense, if they are the auto-move edits. I couldn't really tell since it was in .ar ;)
Comment 7 Aaron Schulz 2008-05-22 23:40:19 UTC
Fixed in r35211
