We're coming up against the Tuning Session and need data for September. One suggestion:

  • pull the absolute numbers & YoY numbers for both August & September
  • Provide 1 set of graphs (ending in September)
  • Analysis should focus on end of September/quarterly trends, with less of a focus on digging into August-specific trends

kzimmerman added a comment to T289197: [REQUEST] Validate and update numbers used in Product Platform Strategy presentation & wiki page.

I reviewed my code with @nshahquinn-wmf, and one major cause for the inflated numbers I see in registered editors by market, as compared to the previously validated query for registered editors, is that the registered editors by market query counts editors by user_fingerprint_or_id, which is unique to each Wiki. This means some editors are double-counted. To eliminate double-counting, I would need to group editors by user_name (which is not as readily available).
