Adding "total editcount" column to Special:Multilock page
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It would be fantastic if we would be able to add a "total editcount" column to the output of the stewards' multiple lock tool used via Special:MultiLock

Adding this column would allow for easier identification of cleanup requirements at wikis.

Adding legoktm to bug. With the recent identification that CentralAuth can show the total edit account, this would be very useful to help present false positives where spamlike naming patterns show on an effected IP. We have had low false positives, however, there have been a few, and showing edit count is a good indicator.

Change 103342 had a related patch set uploaded by Legoktm:
Display total editcount on Special:MultiLock

Code wise this is relatively easy to do, however I mentioned in my commit message that there might be some performance considerations since fetching a user's editcount in the current manner (using CentralAuthUser::queryAttached) is somewhat expensive.

Should go out with wmf9 if I'm reading the schedule properly.
