Because of how MediaWiki works as of late, imported pages histories no longer link to users but instead show something like "prefix>username". This is unfortunate because it prevents users from easily reaching the editor's page, talk page, edit count etc., and doesn't assign edits automatically as it used to do before (why the heck they changed this is beyond me).
So what I'm asking is:
- Make it so imported>Username and it>Username change into the usual links to Username page, talk etc. as we can see in normal histories.
- Assign the edits to the user's edit count.
Now, the vast majority of users have not created an account on the new wiki yet, but I know for sure the old version of MediaWiki could assign edits to users as soon as they created an account with the same username, so it shouldn't be impossible.
