This has been bothering me for a while and i wanted to ask the community what their motivation for mapping is, just simple curiosity.

If you map for multiple of these reasons then choose the one that motivates you the most.

I map for fun and because I like a song. (picked Other)

^this and because the only one who can make a perfect map for my own taste is me, so I do it for my own fun

For fun, its just fun making beatmaps and loving the music helps a great deal too. Sure I feel a sense of accomplishment if I do it properly and it gets ranked, but it started because its fun, and hopefully it will end like that too ;)

I map for the sake of mapping. I enjoy songs I map, and I enjoy the maps I make.

It's fun, and that's what matters. 8-) (I picked other)

If I ever do get a map ranked, it's to watch other's enjoy my hard work ;)

Totally agree with Cubes, [CSGA] and Andrea. If I like a song, It will be probably mapped by me

I map because the song moves me :>

To be honest, it wasn't my original goal plan to become a mapper in osu! It just kinda happened overtime.

How did it all started?
One day in December 2011, I just decided to map a song I stepped from Stepmania and started to experiment with the mapping editor from scratch (without any assistance). I didn't jump directly to getting my map ranked at the time, I first wanted to learn how to map and how to use the editor. I made a few more maps afterwards for more experimentation.

One day, I just decided to go to Youtube to watched random Touhou videos. Eventually, i ended up watching a fan-made touhou opening. I couldn't stop watching the video, because I love the video and the song so much XD. Therefore, I attempted to map this song (this time for ranking), since there was none at the time. About 2.5 months of hardship and 4 months of mapping experience, I finally managed to get my first map ranked!

I picked Other for this reason!

Mainly a way for me to make art. Let's be honest though, I was hoping for a bit of recognition from mapping. Oh the disappointment.

Mainly both, when people tell me one of my map is very good and fun, is when I push for rank.
