Deductions for reminders

I really don't think that reminders sent for the first review should count. I found this site confusing to use at first, and struggled to figure out what I was supposed to be doing. I've got it now, but I'm still being penalized for having once been a newb.

Also, according to the calculations, you're not supposed to be penalized if you have less than an average of one reminder per review. I have .5 but I'm still getting points deducted.

Really. I believe that there shouldn't be any deduction at all. If you are not taking advantage of the rules and regulations. Then we should be given a chance. Some people moves quicker than others. If you are doing your best. Then that's all you can do. To me. Once you are given deductions. It really doesn't make your work quicker but prone to mistakes be ause you are trying to act in a timely matter.
