Is it possible to build a query that just returns the number of objects of a certain type in a certain area? Possible use case: define some things that require local knowledge, run query, get a toplist of people who have been working on those things. Find local mappers! (you could even query only things that are at version 1 to have higher probability that it's original mapping) I didn't get further than this: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/B12

Also: is this much heavier for the servers than running the query and doing the counting client-side?

It may be possible with some of the newer features. You can see similar queries (in that they group a result set and do some statistics on it) described at https://dev.overpass-api.de/blog/sliced_time_and_space.html.

I'm not certain it is possible to get the new for block to loop over users though.

That's going to be at least an interesting read. Thanks! (I'll report back here if I make progress)

So the for loop does work on user:

[out:csv(user,total,nodes,ways,relations)][timeout:25];
{{geocodeArea:Antwerpen}}->.searchArea;
(
  way["building"="hotel"](area.searchArea);
  relation["building"="hotel"](area.searchArea);
  node["tourism"="hotel"](area.searchArea);
  way["tourism"="hotel"](area.searchArea);
  relation["tourism"="hotel"](area.searchArea);
);
for (user()){
    make stat 
     "user"=_.val,
     nodes=count(nodes),
     ways=count(ways),
     relations=count(relations),
     total = count(nodes) + count(ways) + count(relations);
    out;
};
