Priority determines when a beatmap should be looked at.

This topic isn't about ranking, from what I now see, only what maps BAT's should look at.
"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.
Unfortunately, to some, Star Priority just means you got a lot of people to play your map, thats it, and doesn't contribute to the map at all.

Yes please. +1 Support.

Cute. However, I have to agree. Too much bitching over a game.

no no no no. That is a whole new rant thread entirely. Maybe some of Part Foul wouldn't go through nazi-mod standards, but something such as a pattern imperfection should not stop a map from being ranked.

This is a bit off-topic, but I'll answer you anyway.

... fufe? I thought this thread is about the minimum priority to rank? Why are you discussing about ranking?

Mapper 1: Ive 8 stars in less than a week, im ready for rankage! =D (gets ranked)
Mapper 2: Ive got 35 stars over the course of a month, 25 more to go to get top priority D; (unseen)
-mapper 2 may be bad mapper.. but mapper2 may also be pressured to recieve tons of overmodding just for the sake of having to pump that priority number.
I looked at this discussion in a different way:
