    That high? Wow. Given the account doesn't post any questions or answers, how would it get any impact at all? (probably from transferred posts, that's how).

  • Are votes not counted in impact?

    No, they are not. You can see how impact is derived at the post introducing it: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/244534/…

  • Rather than a question, can we have a wiki article specifying how is impact calculated?

    All we do is Q&A, we don't understand wikis. May 29 '15 at 15:25
  • But you do have community wiki..!!

    @anshabhi But those are just questions, too. There's no need to bump a CW sticker under it. I think Community Wiki doesn't really do what you think it does. May 29 '15 at 15:26
  • The impact can easily be derived from the (automated) Election announcements attached to the account. Just add up the views of those posts (note that most of those have been migrated from Meta.SE so had higher views at some point). May 29 '15 at 15:50
