Count on Special:Statistics is less useful due to MassMessageSubmitJob
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Special:Statistics displays the number of 'MassMessageJob' job's that are currently queued. Jobs that are submitted submit one 'MassMessageSubmitJob', which in turn submits individual 'MassMessageJob's.

So if your job queue isn't insta-fast, if you submit a job and view Special:Statistics before the submit job runs, you'll see 0 even though there are jobs queued.

The number of jobs is not shown on Special:Statistics. On the other hand we should not redirect people there.

This number is still shown via the API, like normal jobqueue length.
