A question arose on /greeter chat today, whether dormant royals count toward a majority for voting purposes. Some said yes, some said no. The person who said no, recently demoted a raft of dormant royals with just one vote.

I last updated YPPedia with this in April 2010; there was no discussion at the time.

Er, two votes (me and my alt) - to move three dormant royals to titled and one active player to royal.

We did have a second active royal, who may or may not have voted; but at the best it would have been a tie on the change status if the dormant players counted

Dormant royals are excluded, as we learned last year to our accidental peril.

Edit: Er, given the statement in the discussion thingy, I'll explain what happened to us when we were doing the drops nearly every week and let you figure out what that means in terms of what Chupchup described. With three real royals plus our JC royal, our practice was to set it up secretly midweek by posting a wardec minus a vote (2 votes), then the chest-dropper would use the JC royal to finish the wardec (vote 3 out of 4 possibles) and drop the chest when the blockade window opened. One week I posted the usual 2 mid-week royal votes and the wardec went through right away instead of waiting for a third vote. I checked and our JC royal had gone dormant. None of the other royals was online so it was definitely not caused by someone voting when they shouldn't have.
