The Beatmap Nominators, commonly abbreviated as BN, is a group in charge of beatmap nomination. As of 2014-08-22, they are no longer a part of the staff, revoking their chat moderation in-game, red name in-game, and on the forums. As of 2015-02-01, the team was changed from the Beatmap Appreciation Team to the Beatmap Nominators. Currently, they have a purple name on the forums and in beatmap discussions.
Members of the Beatmap Nominators are responsible primarily for modding the pending beatmaps into the ranking cycle. Beatmap Nominators are the people to go to for advice or requests about anything mapping or modding related. Full members of the Beatmap Nominators are also responsible for disqualifying beatmaps in the qualified section that are found to have significant issues, while probationary Beatmap Nominators focus solely on nomination.
With the change to the team in May 2019, joining the Beatmap Nominators became a lot easier than it used to be in the past. Applications to join can be submitted on this website.
Applicants are required to meet a modding activity requirement, submit at least two maps they have recently modded, and complete a test on the ranking criteria in order to submit their application. There is a 90 day cooldown for submitting new applications once an application has been submitted. A message from the NAT will be sent once a verdict has been decided. More information on applying can be found on the website.

Required Minimum Score.
The Quality Assurance Helpers are volunteers inside of the Beatmap Nominators who assist the Quality Assurance Team at checking every single qualified beatmap for issues. They do so by reporting maps on the Report a Qualified beatmap here! thread.
Quality Assurance Helpers are free to choose whatever maps they like to check as long as they check at least four qualified maps per month. If they are not able to fulfill these activity standards, they will be removed and can only rejoin after a cooldown of one month. Beatmap Nominators who are not on their probationary period or in the cooldown period mentioned above may join the Quality Assurance Helpers at any time.
The tables listed below indicate the game mode(s) in which each Beatmap Nominator is formally qualified to nominate.
