Description Umherirrender 2013-01-13 19:06:10 UTC
Special:ActiveUsers says at the begin:

This is a list of users who had some kind of activity within the last 180 days. 

But for each row, it only tells from edits. But that is wrong, log entries also count here (except the newusers logentry).

I have no idea for better wording, but some thing should changed here and the summary at the begin should match the rest.

I would like to tackle this bug, but I'm not sure I fully understand it. Do you mean to say that one or more of the messages in the ActiveUsers special page is misleading, because it suggests that only edits are taken into account, when actually log entries are also taken into account?
Comment 2 Umherirrender 2013-01-17 19:06:48 UTC
Yes, that is right.
Comment 3 Luis Felipe Schenone 2013-01-18 15:12:50 UTC
I think I understand the problem now. In the list of active users, next to each username it says something like "2 edits in the last 30 days". How about I change it for "2 actions in the last 30 days"?

Is there some other message that needs adjustment? I couldn't find any.
