Month-over-month growth isn't what I was talking about, not least because
the seasonal stuff and different month lengths override that.
What I noticed was that Jan 2015 the >100 edits count was ahead of Jan
2014, as was every month until June 2015 which was ahead of June 2014 <
Could you be more specific re "In general I'm not sure the 100+ count is
among the most reliable." What in particular do you think is unreliable
about that metric?

With 8% more editors contributing over 100 edits
in June 2015 than in
June 2014 <https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesWikipediaEN.htm>, we
have now had six consecutive months where this particular metric of the
core community is looking positive.
I'm not sure I see this pattern, there aren't even 2 consecutive months of
month-over-month growth. In general I'm not sure the 100+ count is among
the most reliable.
The one (global) pattern I do see is 9 consecutive months of YoY growth at
but I still suspect issues with deduplication or bots after the SUL
Would anyone on this list be aware of something that would have
otherwise thrown that statistic?
Suspects could perhaps be narrowed down by looking at factors shared by
en.wiki and it.wiki, as they seem to be the only ones with a small 2015
recovery in the trend graphs at
