> @tomhughes said in #933: it wouldn't get merged, because it requires every view to count all the matching changesets.

where is the difficulty? The user page ```www.openstreetmap.org/user/<name>``` gives the number of edits already. On a user history page, the most recent page number, in numbered pagination, is =round_up(edits/page_length). 

With the current endless paging, it is practically impossible to find older pages of a power user, since I cannot make a manual binary search in his pages. I can only press more and more and more until my browser explodes.

There was numbered pagination a while ago, why has it been given up?
