The information presented is:

The nominees election

Answers/Questions on the main site and it's meta
Up-vote/down-vote ratio
Average reputation earned per post
Average reputation earned per day.

It displays what Yi Jiang considers to be noteworthy badges and whether the nominee has the badge and a summary of their recent activity.

The information is presented as is with no commentary.

It came about from this question on MSO Moderator nomination possibly useful statistics


While we wait for Yi to update his tool, you can already take a sneak preview:

Open Firebug or a smilar tool for live HTML editing.

Look for this line

<li data-sitename="Diy.Stack Exchange">

and replace it with

<li data-sitename="Security.Stack Exchange">

Then click on the Home Improvement button.

Displaying the correct site logo is left as an exercise to the reader...
