honestly, the first thing i thought when the kudosu system was set, was that BAT's would ONLY look at the top prior in the pending list and evenrually help out people who are having offset problems or bpm problems, or other questions.
I think Real1 is a lurker and should stop posting in these threads.Sorry, Pep. >.<
But making the guidlines too harsh will result in too many players with too less mappers.You're saying there are too many maps for players to play?
imho people need to learn how to mapI don't think these are ranking criteria because they are subjective.
new, inventive patterns
mapping is an art, just like drawing, music, etc.
if you don't pick the right song, don't map imaginatively, don't add interesting effects to give your map that extra oomph, your map will suck, and no one will want to look at it, no matter how many stars you have
No i said that too harsh guidline will result in less people start to make maps.Yes, but it doesn't want the graveyard to pile up either. Effort builds maps, and getting your map modded and starred requires effort.
and this could be the overkill for a young game like osu which is growing.
I see it in Stepmania.
Sometimes you play around 200 songs for 1 year.
I doubt it will ever come to this in osu but doesn't osu want players to contribute?
"mapping quality isn't by any means equivalent to star priority. "Star priority is the only means for some mappers to show that they might have some type of quality going.
