I've been around this site long enough to think about maybe possibly kinda sometime in the next year or so, throw my name in for a moderator election. However at the moment I know I need to do a lot of work to improve my standing in the community and establish a good track record of performance and involvement. I would probably score about a 4/40 at the moment, and while I read/visit the site regularly, I haven't been a regular contributor aside from commenting on things.

So with the goal of improvement in mind, is there a way to easily see a checklist or similar view of which moderation badges you still need and what your score would be? Obviously it's doable with just a spreadsheet or something, but if there's an easier way, I don't want to re-invent the wheel.

Part of what got me curious was checking the nomination form to see if it had that snapshot, but oddly it isn't there.

This SEDE query calculates the candidate score for one or more users, breaking the results down by category (reputation, moderation badges, etc). Your current score is actually slightly higher than what you predicted, by the way.

  • Thanks for sharing. I was also wondering how the score is generated. but can someone edit that query? It bugs me that 'Civic Duty' isn't on a new line in the list of mod badges!

  • @dwizum SEDE queries on SEDE behave differently from posts on Q&A sites. I think if you edit it you get your own copy. (It'll be linked on your profile there.) I don't know if anybody other than the author can make direct edits. May 15, 2018 at 15:47
