"Days ago" and upload count in Special:UserProfile seem to be broken on non-English Wikipedias
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

If I go to my UserProfile page in the Hebrew Wikipedia ( https://he.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:UserProfile/Amire80 ), I see that I joined 0 days ago and that my upload count is 0, even though I joined in 2005 and uploaded some files.

I thought that the translation of the message might be wrong, so I tried going to https://he.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:UserProfile/Amire80?uselang=en , but there I also see "Joined 0 days ago with 29,415 edits and 0 uploads."

This happens with other user accounts, too, for example https://he.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:UserProfile/Deror_avi?uselang=en .

This works well in the English Wikipedia.

social (editcountis) reasons...

Sorry, I take back the performance comment (Didn't realize it was limited to at most 500 uploads). My last comment was perhaps not phrased very good, but I would like to point out that there is a long history of people really not liking having edit counts be public in the mediawiki interface.
