Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

{{EDITCOUNT:USERNAME}} over an en-wiki page shall show the edit-count as displayed over https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&list=users&ususers=USERNAME&usprop=editcount.

Extremely helpful in designing templates which behaves differently for established users and new-comers.

This won't be implemented in the parser for cache-ability reasons. It's available as an extension (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Editcount), but that has problems too, see T113169#4822926.
