We did it! We had the first election (well, kind of) and we have a new moderator! I figured what the candidate score is
The Candidate Score can range from 0 to 40, and is calculated as follows:
- 1 point for each 1000 reputation up to 20,000 reputation for a maximum of 20 points.
- 1 point each for Moderation badges - Civic Duty, Cleanup, Deputy, Electorate, Marshal, Reviewer, Sportsmanship, Steward - for a maximum of 8 points.
- 1 point each for Editing badges - Copy Editor, Explainer, Organizer, Refiner, Strunk and White, Tag Editor - for a maximum of 6 points.
- 1 point each for Participation badges - Constituent, Convention, Enthusiast, Investor, Quorum, Yearling - for a maximum of 6 points.
For badges that can be awarded multiple times only 1 point is granted for each badge type, thus ensuring a maximum score of 40 points.
My question: How can I obtain automatically the candidate score for a given user, without counting manually for a given user?
