What about "Unavailable: too old, not logged"?

Or "Unavailable: not logged, too old." This is intended to specify THAT is not available BECAUSE.

Finally available! :-) Thanks for everyone who made that possible. Will you eventually implement an option where we can filter by editcount or hide at least the 0 edit accounts?

Pathoschild's tools just say "< 2006"

DerHexer, the tables are still being populated AFAIK

Frankly, by the time we get such features implemented we'll likely be done with this whole thing :)

Sounds reasonable as well. < 2004 or the like. Don't have to translate anything that way.

DerHexer, the tables are still being populated AFAIK

This is correct.

I'll post the schema and how this is all being sorted out on Monday. We'll start contacting users as well.

Display meaningful message for very old users

As @Krenair mentions on the Gerrit patch set, "< 2004" isn't useful outside of WMF. Any further suggestions?
