Edits which hit the condition limit should be tagged
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The Abuse Filter occasionally stops handling specific edits because it reached the condition limit. It should be possible to see which edits these are - both because they didn't pass the scrutiny of all the filters (and are likely to be problematic), and to allow the Abuse Filter managers to find the expensive filters which cause these.

Wow! If you have done what I think you have done, this deserves all the story points and user notices it can get! I'm very much looking forward to seeing this in action!

@matej_suchanek How would you phrase this in Tech News?

What about something like this:

Some edits have to be checked against too many conditions before they can trigger an abuse filter. If any filter is not executed for that reason, the edit will be [{{fullurl:Special:RecentChanges|tagfilter=abusefilter-condition-limit}} tagged] for further review.
