Rework the Referee Grades system so that - becomes the baseline standard for the speed grades. Remove the punishments associated with it, but do not allow for rewards. Scale up from there.
I feel that the rewards should stay and the -3 cap aswell I honestly don’t feel like the -3 makes a difference to – grade refs due to the time it takes them in the first place and as slash said

Shift the Weekly Bonus to x1.5 SP for those referees who are at neutral or above speed grades.
In my opinion the 1.5x should be for all grades not just neutral or above it would allow refs whom cannot achieve the weekly reffings consistently to gain some extra sp, that being said removing the -3 cap doesn’t really do much since they most likely are not reffing more than 7 battles and if they are able to then they should increase their speed.
Set the base SP earnings to x1.5X, where X is number of Pokemon in X vs. X, for matches of 4 vs. 4 and higher. This omits the expected leveling stipulations so as to avoid RF abuse (2vs. 2 Singles, 3 vs. 3 Doubles).
This would make reffing larger matches much more worthwhile I like this idea.

As for what Snorby said

A: Make (and enforce) a rule that to be answered, all Q/A questions (and S/I ones pertaining to battles) have a link to the battle in the post, so that those answering can get all the context they might need to construct informed answers. This has the bonus effect of insuring that nobody slips questions about their ref test into the Q/A.

B: Get back into the state of mind where we side with the referee whenever it's feasible and they aren't truly out of line. Giving an uncertain referee the reassurance that they aren't causing more problems than they're solving by reffing would be huge in keeping them from losing motivation and closing up shop, I'd think.

C: Take action when people don't respect their referee's discretion. I'm not saying punish people whenever they step out of line, but if someone is consistently making it a pain to ref one of their matches by completely disregarding their referee's discretion, they deserve a stern talking-to at the very least.
I agree with this completely

Finally I feel like one of the reasons that battles get so clogged up is them waiting in the queue for a replacement ref. I feel like D grade refs should be able to take on matches in progress with permission from both battlers this would:
a) Get lower grade refs a chance to see how other refs notes are done
b) Allow the queue to flow more smoothly and get a ref to use up a spare slot on a match that won’t take as long
c) Get matches finished instead of them waiting for weeks on end
