Greetings, my friends. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that we have bubbles older than 6 months. A big part of these sets are maps made by beginner mappers, who are stuck and can't find you and ask for help. We all know how hard it is to get our first maps ranked and how unpleasant waiting for bubble checks is, so I ask you to help us and take care of these old bubbles.

I agree and support Bakari's statement.
Here you have the link to check all the popped/bubbled maps: https://osu.ppy.sh/p/bubbles

@Bakari: Additionally to what you said, many of these "new mappers" don't even ask for a BN check because they are too afraid or shy. Garven once told me to do it and that's what I did, I went through the list and helped a bunch of sets, however I have never ever heard of them nor the fellow BNs. This is more a thing that we, Beatmaps Nominators, have to deal with. We must check all the list and help these mappers no matter how. Even if they never contacted us. Really encouraging of you to bring the topic into the Forums, Bakari!
Actually, I was thinking about this the other day lol.
However, it seems many bubbles were placed by already purged nominators. Accordng to p/4799841 , it is advised to rebubble instead... but that looks more like an infinite cycle to me?
Getting a rebubble for such sets is a good step forward, encourage them to contact somebody, suppport them! Even a simple bubble refreshment is a good thing for a set that's been dead frozen for months.

Also, I would like to see some QATs helping out, too. I myself might hop in and take a bubble or two, and I expect our beloved redname friends to do the same.
lets se what we can do then~
I noticed this too and was already working through the Mania list of Bubbled Maps to reduce them :D
Noticed too.I will take a look at them to reduce them.Nice idea Bakari.Mappers waited so long to get some help so it's time to share some help especially to new mappers.
Just a tiny bit of motivation, for those of you, who care: you get 2 kudosu for helping out the maps, which haven't been modded in a while! So, if you're short on stars, this is a win-win for both the mapper and for you!
I have 109 stars left, no need to do it for that reason.
One question though, should we contact the mapper first and talk about it, or just start checking them?
just check them :)
I would like to mention to the Taiko capable BNs that we have a lot of bubbled Taiko maps, especially some which go towards the 1 month mark:

It would be very nice if you could keep an eye on these since we have 13 maps which are deemed by your fellows as rankable!


Actually I checked for mania the list too as I saw that there are a lot of bubbled maps but hell, I lost track at the end. Some maps from site 2 of the pending maps are missing.

You know, it's not a must for BNs to check anything, but to those who are dedicated, you should really check those old maps.
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/323413 https://osu.ppy.sh/s/297170 taking cover on this one, could be qualified soon unless the mapper unable to corporate C:
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/171480 i will take care of this also, some snapping could be changed but.. the mapping style.. o2jam is bae <3

https://osu.ppy.sh/s/364159 - decade handle this one tho... the other mapset? idk
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/339822 - imo it would be great if someone could find a better timing setup for Variable BPM in the ending,

and some other mapset cuz even they were bubbled, im not gonna push those maps forward, sorry to not sorry c:
I'm handling a map that's been qualified about a year ago and sitting in bubbled for 6 months without anyone giving a damn, so will look when I finish this
Okay then.

https://osu.ppy.sh/s/282983 <- Popped
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/357060 <- Qualified

Works :3
Oh, great guys! I updated the list for better organization.
talking about old bubble, how about old 'popped' bubble? '-' i bet the mapper might give up already whether the popped bubble become abandoned after more than 1 month
if someone has a popped bubble for whatever reason they should get the one who popped it or the original bns to rebubble, if they can't do that there's probably more wrong with the set than described in the pop post alone or the original bns got kicked. Which is unfortunate, but making a list of all popped bubbles in graveyard will give you up to 8 year old maps which went to die for whatever reason.
Atm i don't have any idea how to filter these or how to automatically classify them to make a comprehensive list.
@.@ right.. 8 years old popped map.. nvm me then..

O_O 8 years old?! The map is probably as old as the game xD

Also, I think Ono did a great job in summarizing the old bubbles. Let me imitate.

I took care one of them last week and it's finally qualified. Now time for me to pick another!

Please let us know if you are willing to handle any of the above and update us the status of the map so that the list is updated in time.
What are these btw?
... and many more
Aren't these maps technically bubbled? They are not displayed in the listings because they are graveyarded for some reason (graveyarding seemed to work different way back in time).
