Well, believe it or not, a score exists already (sorta), it's just the number of nominations, dq's, etc. you get. almost everyone is judged on a case by case basis, we look carefully into the reasons and circumstances, that "score" is only used as a guideline.

The management team will simply use that scoring system for judgement of said BN.This sounds like it might be unpopular, but just knowing a number exists in the first place will put pressure on me, and I feel like not knowing what it is would only make that feeling worse. I would know that there is some sort of value that determines how i rank up against other bns, but assuming that we're not able to know what value that is (because it's kept secret), I won't know what exactly I'm able to do to perform better, forcing me to be perfect in every aespect (which isn't realistic). This sounds very similar to my experience that I explained on probation here.
I think a good middle ground for this would be making the viewing of the score sheet optional, because I imagine everyone will feel differently about being able to see their score :p So if a bn wants to see their score, they can request an invite to a google sheet that shows it or whatever, but if not that's ok too.
Interesting point, I've actually never thought this was an issue since I assumed people knew that they should just not get any dq's and it'll be fine

My readmission felt a bit like the QAT was saying "ok you're a bn now but you're also on probation, so yeah gl." There wasn't really much guidance as to how anyone on probation was being evaluated. Were the QAT looking for number of icons? bubble pops or dqs? activity? I got a lot of mixed responses and some rumors from people I asked (bns and like 2 qat i think). For myself I had the reasons from my previous probation failure to focus on improving but I didn't see any clarity as to how our performance was being measured for the other probation bns. This just put pressure on me to be perfect in every aspect of modding, which I know isn't the true expectation of the QAT.
This whole ordeal made probation super super stressful for me, and it made it a bit of a mystery as to why some of the people didn't pass. Probation doesn't need to be stressful or mysterious. We need to write some sort of probation quidelines or something.
