Is there a minimum Rep for Best Nodes of the Day?by kcott (Chancellor)

I ask this purely out of curiosity; it has no bearing on any particular node being included in, or excluded from, Best Nodes of the Day.
[All figures shown below were correct at the time of writing. There's a good chance they'll be different by the time you read this.]
Best Nodes of the Day normally shows the top 10 nodes (ordered by Rep); occasionally there's less than 10. Just now there's only 6. Newest Nodes shows 19 posts in the last day (2 Questions; 17 Notes); Worst Nodes of the Day shows 0 nodes. There's also zero Nodes to consider; although, that's possibly entirely irrelevant.
The Reps for the Best Nodes of the Day currently range from 17 to 8. I wondered if the lowest ("8") was based on $NORM (from Voting/Experience System); however, the value of $NORM is currently 13.8398, so that doesn't appear to be related.
My next thought was that there was some minimum Rep for inclusion in Best Nodes of the Day; hence the title of this post.
And, if there isn't a minimum Rep; what is the criterion for inclusion?
