I "am" interested in nominating for the mod election, but I feel that I don't have all the necessary experience yet. (My plan is to become more experienced over the months so I can nominate in the next election cycle, whenever that may be.)

With that out of the way, how would I know what my "candidate score" would be if I did nominate?

I am particularly curious as to what badges are selected to count towards:

  • the "moderation badges: 8/8",
  • the "editing badges: 6/6", and
  • the "participation badges: 6/6"
  • 1

There is a SEDE query that will calculate your current score without having to actually submit a nomination.
