NewImpact: Use POST request for fetching impact data
Open, MediumPublic

Description

The UserImpactHandler can write data back to the cache if it finds that the page view data is stale. It curently does that in the JobQueue, but we would prefer to do this in a DeferredUpdate so that the updated data is processed and stored more quickly, for a higher likelihood of being available on page reload and to not make Special:Homepage functioning dependent on job queue processing times
