Also, JamieCarollKrol info on XTools show 0 edits in Mediawiki!

So, the problem here from XTools or Mediawiki-CentralAuth?

Something fishy is going on.
When a user is expected to have no deleted contributions, Special:DeletedContributions should show the message nocontribs, but that message is not shown on https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:DeletedContributions/JamieCarollKrol. It shows the output of an empty pager instead. Compare to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:DeletedContributions/MainframeBot.

I'm attempting to find out where these edits have gone using Quarry, but so far no luck yet: https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/16995

I checked on the database master, there are no rows in the revision nor archive table corresponding to their user id (12188407).

There's an HTML comment saying <!-- Could not format Special:DeletedContribution row. --> (see DeletedContribsPager::formatRow()).

Please check if they're Flow edits. They'll be on the account of the sysop that deleted the Topic.

Unfortunately, XTools doesn't have access to anything Flow. See T136950 for details.

Removing XTools as we have our own task for adding Flow contributions: T136950: Add Flow contributions to XTools
