Here's my Activity view (on Ask Ubuntu) with posts edited highlighed.
This number is drastically different from Revisions which can be seen at the bottom left of the image, for reasons explained in answer to this question, for example. I understand that difference OK - unlike posts edited, revisions counts retags, edits to my own posts and multiple revisions. I also know that posts edited doesn't include posts that were deleted later.
But why is the posts edited number different from this one, shown under the Users tab? (Hoping the other users whose data is in the image won't mind this being shown)
I'm pretty sure this number also shows attrition as posts are deleted, since I remember that the person who has 9995 edits in this image used to have 10000 in the same view.
I know this view is slow to update, but the difference between 9488 and 9873 seems quite a lot.
Are these two numbers counting something different? Why don't they match?
