As a follow-up to bug 63987, currently in the "Basic information" [[Special:Preferences]] section, you see something like this:
Username: Jimbo Wales
User ID: 1234
Member of groups: Autoconfirmed users, Users
Connected apps: Manage 123 connected applications
Number of edits: 123,456
Registration time: 12:34, 15 January 2001
Global account status: All in order!
Your account is active on 123 project sites. (Manage your global account | View global account info)

Most of this info (edit count, registration time, etc.) should be available in a more logical location. Perhaps on a user's user page or via the info action for the user's user page (i.e., index.php?title=User:Jimbo_Wales&action=info)? Or perhaps a dedicated Special page such as Special:AboutMe? Or perhaps at the top of [[Special:Contributions]]?
Proposal for this bug: make this account info available at the top of [[Special:Contributions]] or in an auto-generated footer template on user pages.
