just a bit confused (and it is probably a 101 question):

the number of active editors that I get here


is very well defined, and says what it means. But trouble is, it is inconsistent with the number that I get here


for active editors, and if I understand the definition at the latter correctly it means "one edit or action within the last 30 days".

Can someone please help me to interpret the numbers appropriately?


P.S.: this is true for all WMF projects, I took simple as an example.
