HotMess added a comment to T313900: Investigate bug where user receives Wikipedia Library notification before reaching 500 edit threshold.

So, there are only two pieces of data that could be wrong here, either:

  1. the global editcount was incorrect when HotMess made a "qualifying" edit, which is what is being suggested here, or
  2. the configured minimum was not 500.

If it's the first issue, I'm not really sure what we can do about it in terms of code. Central Auth is the system of record for global edits, so we kind of need to either trust it 100% or 0%. So far as I know, we can't go back and look at historical editcounts. If the problem is here, then we need to get in touch with the folks who handle username changes to look at that process and maybe offer mitigation strategies. There might be some heuristic we could use to wait on sending invites for accounts with a recent name change. That's total speculation, though.

I think that it might be related to the fact that, back in April, I submitted a (successful) change of username request. Under my prior username, I had ~50-60-ish total contributions (with a couple of deleted contributions from back then because past me was an idiot), so, judging from the timing of the invite, I guess that the notification thing might have counted the contributions under the former username twice.
