The idea of getting a map Loved is awesome, wanting to see players compete for the top with no better reward other than bragging rights instead of PP. Knowing mappers and players that appreciate this form of ranking makes me feel like the game is for fun which is a great thing.

I can agree with your post, however I prefer to make maps for individual enjoyment, rather than competition even on a leaderboard only level. My maps are meant to be felt and if they are a battle, it's a battle with the self and the map, not anyone else.
