A quick follow up to the signpost article of a couple of weeks ago <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2015-08-26/In_focus>We now have the August figures <https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesWikipediaZZ.htm>, and August has continued what we might reasonably start calling the new trend. The English Wikipedia has more editors with 100 or more live edits in mainspace than for any August since 2010. Across all Wikipedias combined the figures are up almost as steeply with a near 10% increase on August 2014, though this doesn't quite get us back to 2012 levels.
We aren't out of the woods yet as other metrics are still declining, for example both new accounts and editors making 5 or more saves are both down across Wikipedia generally when comparing August 2015 with 2014. But it's nice to have one metric be positive.
