I'm not an analyst, but I was looking at this out of curiosity and noticed
that anon users dropped by almost the same number that logged-in users rose:
Maybe people are logging in more?

The English Wikipedia is showing a pattern that I
don't notice on
several other wikis. If I'm not mistaken, in April 2020 monthly active
editors passed 43k for the first time since 2011 (the year when
MobileFrontend was created).
(As usual there will be a deflation of the number in a few months, after
the deletions have run their course. The 43k threshold may still hold.)
The April peak looks like it continued and reinforced one of the
now-usual October/January/March peaks. Do we know how much of this
growth is organic or across the board and how much is amplification of
existing known seasonal patterns (WikiEdu?).
