The Beatmap Nomination Group, more commonly referred to as the BNG, is a group in charge of beatmap nomination. Individual members are commonly referred to as Beatmap Nominators, or BNs. This group has undergone many changes recently. As of 22. August 2014, they are no longer a part of the staff, revoking their chat moderation in-game, red name in-game, and on the forums. The most recent change was on 01. February 2015 when the team was changed from Beatmap Appreciation Team to Beatmap Nominator Group.
