Description Danny B. 2009-12-17 12:32:04 UTC
archive.ar_user_text isn't updated after user rename while revision.rev_user_text is.
Comment 1 Aaron Schulz 2009-12-17 14:47:12 UTC
ar_user and ar_user_text are updated. It's been that way for a long time (though not always).
Comment 2 Danny B. 2009-12-17 18:47:20 UTC
Ah, then there should be some update ran to synchronize those names which hasn't been changed before the software allowed it, since currently there are still old names kept.

Perhaps change the summary then?
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2010-05-24 19:11:35 UTC
Changed summary. Maybe a script can be made for people with edits left to be renamed.
Comment 4 db [inactive,noenotif] 2011-12-19 18:33:37 UTC
see bug 31863
Comment 5 Sam Reed (reedy) 2013-01-17 19:53:48 UTC
There seems to be literally tonnes of these:

SELECT ar_rev_id, ar_namespace, ar_title, ar_timestamp, ar_user_text, user_name  FROM archive, user WHERE ar_user_text <> user_name AND ar_user = user_id AND user_id > 0 LIMIT 50;
