Welcome to the Help forum!
The place to go when you have a problem to report or a question to ask.
What to post

Technical Issues
You may create a new thread for any technical issues you're experiencing, as long as it's related to osu! in one way or another, by creating a new thread.

When creating a thread for help with a technical issue, please include a detailed description of the issue itself and the release stream/version of the game that the issue applies to. Please also include any other relevant information that may help us in assisting you. That includes things such as your computer specifications, things you already attempted to resolve the issue, etc.

Bug Reports
Bugs you find in game can be reported here by creating a new thread. Alternatively, you may also report them directly to the osu-stable-issues GitHub repository. Bugs you find on the website can be reported to the osu-web GitHub repository.

Please be sure to use the search functionality on each of the respective GitHub repositories to make sure there isn't already an issue open for the bug you are reporting.

You may create a thread if you have any questions related to osu!.

Please note that the wiki has information about all osu! related things, so do check it out and see if you can find an answer to your question there first. Also, if it's a simple question you might want to try asking it in the #help channel in game.

What not to post

Account Issues
Account-related issues are not handled on the forum, so please don't post them here.

Send an email to detailing your issue instead. This means anything that is directly related to your account, including flag changes, username changes, osu!supporter payment issues, account security concerns, etc..

Reporting Users
Do not create a thread to report someone for foul play or inappropriate behaviour here.

Either report them using the report button on their profile page (here, for example) or use the in-game report command (type !faq report in any public channel, such as #osu, for more information). You can also report specific scores on any beatmap listing page (such as here, for example) instead.

Threads that belong in other forums
For gameplay related help you should post in the Gameplay & Rankings forum instead. This means threads where you're looking for help that aren't issues with the game itself, but rather issues that lie with you, the player. For example looking for tips on how to do certain patterns in a beatmap.

Similarly, help with artwork belongs to the Art forum instead. An example of this case would be looking for someone that can help you make an avatar.

The general guideline is that if there is a more appropriate forum for it, you should post it there instead.
