So I noticed the moderator election thread today, and I noticed the nifty little info boxes they had down at the bottom (this is Fabian's):

meta participation
questions: 7 / +13
answers: 9 / +38

Is this total information available elsewhere? I don't think I'd make a good mod, and have no intention of nominating myself, so I don't think it wise for me to submit a "nomination" solely so I can view my meta participation numbers.

If there is a way to view this data, does one exist for the parent site as well?

  • Support would've been the proper tag if you're just asking "Is this possible" rather than "Can this be implemented". – Grace Note Feb 1 '11 at 0:12

With proper maths, this can be done.

You can get the question and answer values by checking your Meta profile. Then, simply tally up all of the scores of your posts to get your total value in both answers and questions.

You can take a bit of a shortcut and approximate your Meta participation by using tag stats. All Meta questions must have one of four tags, so if you check the top users pages for discussion, bug, support, and feature-request, you can reduce the calculation to a simple 4-number addition. Now, because of how negative posts and Community Wiki are handled, this isn't necessarily a complete match for the stats shown on elections. But if you just want a quick idea, it's faster.

  • The former part also works for the parent site, naturally, but scales horribly since you'll have a lot more posts there. And there are no required tags, so there is no shortcut approximation either. – Grace Note Feb 1 '11 at 0:22
