Nomination phase for the election of moderator is underway and before nominating myself I would like to see my candidate score. Meanwhile only Manish has nominated himself for the election and his candidate score is like this

candidate score 20/40
reputation 7k
moderation badges: 4/8
editing badges: 4/6
participation badges: 5/6

How can other candidates like myself find their candidate score with out nomination?

    $\begingroup$ It bears mentioning again, but as M.A.Ramezani has pointed out below, these standards are very lofty for a site that is much more niche than a Stack Overflow or Super User. If you (or anyone) feel you've been a positive contributor and want to do more, please nominate yourself. $\endgroup$

Well, let's look at the factors in play:


Being a trusted user wins 20 scores. In short, each 1k rep till 20k counts as 1 score, and the rep gets truncated. So, for me, someone with 2768 reps, it's 2 scores, outta 20.

Moderation badges:

(Shamelessly copied from the meta.SE post on this very nominal occurrence)

Civic Duty, Cleanup, Deputy, Electorate, Marshal, Reviewer, Sportsmanship, Steward

Each count as one. So I'll get a 5/8 as I don't have Marshal, Sportsmanship and Steward.

Editing badges:

Copy Editor, Explainer, Organizer, Refiner, Strunk and White, Tag Editor

Just as my English vocab book says, instructions as above. For example, I miss Copy editor and Refiner, so I'll get a four outta six.

Participation badges:

Constituent, Convention, Enthusiast, Investor, Quorum, Yearling

Instructions as above.

A final note: These standard were set for huge sites like I dunno, ELU, Math.SE, SO and so on. So I won't be ashamed of the low score most of us get. You shouldn't too. :)

    $\begingroup$ Thanks. I wonder why you don't nominate though. You're really following this election! :) $\endgroup$

Out of curiosity, I dug around and there's a Stack Exchange Data Explorer site.

You can get your user-id from your profile or user URL (e.g., mine is 5017). Enter it and you'll get the score.
