Don't have much to say, me likes.

Don't expect people to automatically be truthful about this,

Then again, I don't see why anyone would lie either. It's a myth that tablet users have an advantage over mouse users. But, I've only ever used mouse. Lots of people use keyboard for streams, so that would be interesting to know.

I guess I'm neither for nor against.

I have to agree here, there seems to be quite a few people out there who think that using a tablet is easier/makes you better instantly/is cheating. I see others in multiplayer too, saying that they wish they had a tablet so they could get better, or that someone is only good because they have a tablet.

most of these people are mouse users (I'm not generalising here, it's just a small number of mousers think they are somehow worse off) and it can sometimes get pretty annoying to have your skill dismissed because you use a tablet. I mean, it's not like I'm the greatest player in the world, but i didn't just buy a tablet and could then instantly do everything easily.

I've tried playing with a mouse recently, and to be honest it is just as easy as it is with a tablet. if you are thinking of getting a tablet for the sole purpose of an instant skill boost, forget it; save your money and buy something else, or become an osu! supporter if you aren't already :D

back on topic though, i don't really see a need to implement something like this. playstyle is a matter of preference, and playing one way or the other shouldn't really need to be taken into account when regarding skill. if a player is good then they are good, end of story. people should be going "omg, cookiezi is awesome" not "oh, he uses a tablet, that's why he's so good". if a player is not so good, then chances are they just need a bit more practice, not new hardware.

bottom line: it's a pretty good idea, but not really necessary. I would probably lie and say I used a mouse so the small percentage of people who care don't think I'm just some mouth-breathing tabletfag. I'm not raging/pointing fingers here, just saying that there are a few people out there who care greatly

go go support this 0.0

Support! But I'd rather see this sort of thing in the leaderboards telling which input device was used to rank on certain songs. I would prefer small icons representing that next to the rank. I'm pretty sure osu! is able to distinguished certain devices.

I would've suggest color coding leaderboard rankings but it wouldn't look right.

could it really distinguish between:

Tab only
Tab + KB (tab only moves)
KB for stream + mouse for single
Mouse only
KB + mouse (mouse only moves)
1 KB key + mouse for stream otherwise mouse only (friend uses this and is very good)
Touchscreen only
Touchscreen + kb (TS only moves)

I guess you could say all combinations of mouse + whatever could just be "mouse". TBH using the mouse by itself is by far the hardest thing to do in the game. It shouldn't be in the same boat as mouse + kb.

User profile pages maybe will look better with this new feature, they have received only a few modifications since the last two years.
I hope to see this idea implemented soon.
Support this stuff, good luck

This is a good idea. People who are curious can easily look at profiles to see how the user plays. I support.

Tablet+KB, Mouse+KB, Mouseonly, Tablet, Other (Touchscreen and etc.)

The only options really should be "Mouse only" or "Not mouse only".

Or Optional.
Aqo
1 - Mouse Only
2 - Mouse + Keyboard
3 - Tablet
4 - Touchscreen
5 - Other

Doesn't this sum this up? Cover up the most common options, if somebody uses anything else just pick "Other" and ask them ingame.
I'd love this to be added. Please add this.
