User ID 0 on simple
Hi,

I am confused by the following edit on the Simple English Wikipedia:

https://simple.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=April&oldid=2130

It is done by User:Ams80 it says, but the user does not exist. Also, when
you click on all the users contributions, you get an empty list -- also not
including the April article.

https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/Ams80

I am guessing that the Simple English Wikipedia was maybe started in 2003
with a copy of the English Wikipedia, and that the first edit is actually
done by a proxy editor name or something like that, that does not really
exist.

Anyone having a good memory?

Cheers,
Denny

A user will have id 0, but an associated user name, when a page is
imported via Special:Import, and if said user does not exist locally.
