Do you have some kind of Pull Request Score in your company?

I meant some kind of score, how good is your PR (how many bugs have)

For example:

Reviewer found 3 bugs in PR, then PR author lose 3 points from overall score. (Like motivation system)

My previous job used SVN, worked fine for us but no real concept of pull requests in that world. At least not for us. We had a real quality problem so we gamified the process of committing. Scores were kept over a rolling 90-day period. It was done in good fun and it was a bit of extra motivation for not breaking the build.

I had a dashboard running in the office for other reasons be we added that to it, the point was never to punish someone, I would have taken it away had that happen.

I think it’s success was down to the personality of the team members. Not sure it would get buy in from the teams I work with now.
