    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). – Oded May 29 '15 at 15:18
  • Are votes not counted in impact? – anshabhi May 29 '15 at 15:18

    No, they are not. You can see how impact is derived at the post introducing it: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/244534/… – Oded May 29 '15 at 15:20
  • Rather than a question, can we have a wiki article specifying how is impact calculated? – anshabhi May 29 '15 at 15:21

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

    @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. – Christian Rau 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). – Martijn Pieters May 29 '15 at 15:50
