Thanks a lot Mr.Z-man!!!

I have a doubt, I checked at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Statistics
and currently there are 13,331,812 users in en.wikipedia (which is the one with
most registered users, I guess).

The doubt is the following. Is it possible that ~8 millions out of ~13 millions
users opted in for unified login? I believe this is not the case.

So maybe the reason for 8259190 users in Globaluser_table is that users end up
there automatically (since a certain date, possibly)?

Probably the fields of Globaluser_table (such as gu_registration,
gu_registration and gu_home_db for example) and localuser_table (such as
lu_name and lu_attached_timestamp) are useful.

May I ask you to run a query to get some records from these tables to get a
better idea of what they are used for? You can use my account "Phauly" for
posting results of queries.

I checked at https://wiki.toolserver.org/view/Database_schema (and also the
diagram at https://wiki.toolserver.org/view/Media:Mediawiki-database-schema.png
) but there is no mention I could find of these global tables.
