Beatmap Nominators

See also: Beatmap Nominator Rules, Expectations for Beatmap Nominators, General Information for Beatmap Nominators, and Becoming a Beatmap Nominator

The Beatmap Nominators (BN) is a group in charge of beatmap nomination. They are distinguished by their purple user title and user group badge that reads BN.

Roles and responsibilities

Members of the Beatmap Nominators are responsible primarily for modding pending beatmaps and approving them into the ranking cycle. Beatmap Nominators are the people to go to for advice or requests about anything mapping or modding related. Any beatmap nominator can place a beatmap veto if they feel a nominated map has issues that must be fixed which are not direct violations of the Ranking Criteria.

In addition, all Beatmap Nominators are expected to adhere to a loose set of ideals focused around service to the greater community by directing their attention to a wide variety of maps and mappers, and striving to constantly improve their craft, as outlined in the Expectations for Beatmap Nominators article.

Members of the Beatmap Nominators are divided into two groups: full members and probationary members.

Full Beatmap Nominators

In addition to regular beatmap modding and ranking, full members of the Beatmap Nominators are responsible for disqualifying beatmaps in the qualified section that are found to have issues. Full Beatmap Nominators may also participate in occasional Beatmap Nominator application assessment if they are interested in joining the Nomination Assessment Team in the future.

Approximately every three months, full Beatmap Nominators have their behaviour and nomination activity/quality evaluated by the Nomination Assessment Team. If their nominations are frequently reset for notable reasons or their behaviour is unacceptable, they may either be issued a warning or be removed from the group, depending on the severity and frequency.

Probationary Beatmap Nominators

Probation is used to monitor new Beatmap Nominators more closely. The main role for probationary Beatmap Nominators is to establish a foundation as a Beatmap Nominator through exclusively promoting beatmaps in the ranking process. At least one full nominator must be involved in the ranking process for each game mode of a beatmap, so probationary members cannot give the final nomination to a beatmap which has only received nominations from other probationary members for their game mode.

Probationary Beatmap Nominators are evaluated after meeting double their activity requirements, or after one month from being placed there, whichever comes first.

New members of the Beatmap Nominators will be assigned an NAT buddy who they are encouraged to directly contact for questions or guidance. After their first evaluation, they will be either promoted to the full Beatmap Nominators following a positive evaluation, or removed from the Beatmap Nominators.

A Beatmap Nominator cannot be demoted to probation. If concerns are raised regarding their performance, they would either be issued a warning or be removed from the group.

Beatmap Nominators are granted the following benefits:

  • osu!supporter: An osu!supporter tag that lasts for the duration of their group membership.

History

  • The Beatmap Nominators were previously called the Beatmap Appreciation Team (BAT).
  • On the 22nd of August, 2014, the BAT were no longer considered a part of the staff team. This revoked their chat moderation ability in-game and their red name in-game and on the forums.
  • On the 1st of February, 2015, the team was changed from the Beatmap Appreciation Team to the Beatmap Nomination Group, later adjusted to the Beatmap Nominators that we know today.
