It's impossible for this to be 100% a shitpost because even if the reality is that you're 99% right, there is still that one chance of a series of events leading to "my old pals, please help me win the popularity contest 8-)". It's impossible for this to never have happened at least once.

Personally, I find it highly likely for someone to tell his old pals about the election. If they aren't told then, yeah, they'll miss the election entirely if out of touch.

hello plapatin,

in the interest of trying to provide you with an answer i went ahead and looked at a data set i have for 30 days of admin activity from august 24th, which is exported from statbus on that date. note that the number of admins has slightly increased from august 24th, but im just going to use the data set at that time as an example as i imagine the real filter is based on data before the vote has started.

at that time there were 90 admins with +BAN, which excludes the tgstation account and mso as presumably he does not vote in the election in this manner. if we were to put a relatively simple filter of more than 20 connections in that 30 days, it disqualifies about half of the admin team (42 people) including yourself. similarly, requiring at least one connection to any server in that 30 day period disqualifies about a quarter (25 people).

whilst those bolded terms might seem interesting, of those people with zero connections at that time, about five of them have suddenly got at least one connection in the past seven days indicating they likely logged on to vote. in this regard, perhaps this is not as large of an issue that people may initially think, but we're also not at the end of the voting period so it is difficult to ascertain how many more will vote this weekend in the last couple of days.

from looking at the source for tgdb, this is one of the few filters built into the irv polling system, though the actual filters used are probably considerably different; hopefully this example gives you an idea of how in-game activity could affect the vote similar to how we judge players.

data available here, as always.

whilst i understand that the concept of admin activity is more complicated than 'yes they connect to the servers they are asked to administrate by virtue of their position' due to the complexities of people who keep up-to-date in discord, i still hope this answer provides you with some level of answer. i know this seems to be a concept that is thrown around a lot without much proposal of what it actually means to be inactive!

all the best,
bobbah "bee" brown

You can dislike the fact there are admins who play less than once/month during an entire headmin term without thinking they are a shadow government.

the only way to prevent the shadowgov is a parallel server with fake bots where the shadow gov can administrate, as they wont notice its fake

because the vote filter is there only to remove voters who aren't actually tgstation community members, and becoming an admin just to vote seems quite unlikely so the filter would be effectively useless.

Obviously no but according to bobbahs data further up it looks like a few admins logged in just to vote, their first login in a long while
I don't think that's great
