Production is updating user and revision database tables causing replication lag
On December 13, many ToolForge tools stopped working as user tables are eliminated.
Tool I've created and maintained for the Wikipedia community. They're used every month to make 15,000-20,000 edits[1]; as a comparison 15,000 cumulative edit is enough to be a top 5,000 Wikipedian.
