I was considering nominating myself as a candidate but I figure my candidate score is probably too low to throw my hat in the ring at this time.

Is there a way to find out what my candidate score is before nominating myself?

Thank you @AndreSilva for the link (just change userids to your id for your score)

    No,any GIS SE user with a reputation of 300 can nominate themselves. But you will have to be very quick as the Nomination Phase closes in less than 1 hour.

I wondered the same thing before I nominated myself.

You can hover your mouse over the existing nominations and see what each score component is...It looks like the n/40 score is based on 4 things:

  • 1 point per 1k of reputation, up to 20k rep (so 20 points max)
  • Up to 8 points total for each review queue badge (Civic Duty, Deputy, Reviewer, Steward).
  • Up to 6 points for each editing badge (Explainer, Organizer, Strunk & White, Tag Editor)
  • Up to 6 points for each participation badge (Constituent, Enthusiast, Quorum, Yearling)

But, as Mapperz points out, there's not a minimum score to nominate yourself other than the minimum reputation requirement (300).
