Hit count preferences do not work

Description

1. Log in
2. Hi, username! > My Preferences

On the preferences page, there are three preferences under the heading Statistics:
1. "Don't show me any hit counts."
2. "Don't show me hits on my works."
3. "Don't show other people hits on my works."

For the past few years, it's been the case that if you set any of these, it'll only work sometimes due to caching. These preferences should be removed.

This should almost certainly have a news post published ahead of time telling users how to create a custom skin that hides hit counts for themselves.

I’m not seeing any preferences relating to hits on my preference page. I was able to change my preferences to hide additional tags, which worked, and I was able to change this preference back, as well. Statistics page looks normal and I can sort by hits. When I view works in a tag or on my dashboard, I see a hit count.

This is BOT because we need to tweak the migration (https://github.com/otwcode/otwarchive/pull/3805) but I don't think we need to re-test the UI changes.

Rolled back the current version of the migration so we can test the updated version later (on test-app13):

The schema dumps failed for me, but the columns have been added back.
