Update for CheckUser[edit]

Special page extension
Installation notes
The following line needs to be added to/modified in LocalSettings.php
$wgCUDMaxAge = 12 * 30 * 24 * 3600; // 12 months
Reason for the request
The extension helps to identify users and especially sock accounts to solve conflicts with policies and block evasions. At the current time period of 3 months, not enough data is being retained.
What else uses it
The CheckUser extension is used on a lot different wikis, including the whole WikiMedia farm.
