What I like about mapping is to produce playable charts of my favorite songs for one of my favorite games, and then hear what other people think about them. Feedback keeps me motivated to keep doing it, and it's a really great feeling to improve at something that you like doing.
I oh so want to map! but I don't have the time to learn mapping techniques. I wanna map to rank (It's like "Death is the best form of cc" kind of philosophy) When I love a song so much, I wanna map it then get sad because I suck at mapping and probably never rank anything
While I have seen quite some maps that ARE oriented towards triangles and super easy high star rating maps, I still think that mapping can be an expression of the song. Of course there's only so much you can do with circles and sliders, but that's where creativity comes in.
By all means i do not see myself as a good mapper, But some mappers out there are really good at showing what a song can mean with just circles and sliders and the additional spinner.
I myself want to map, Not because to get anything ranked really (not that i think ranked isn't good, because that'd be great, Ranked AND being a really good map) But so that I can make a beatmap that other players may enjoy.
I was mapping a bit actively until this General Secondary Certificate came. Just as plenty of users said: Need to improve my mapping style. I can map and hitsound, but if I want to get it truly done right, I need to improve my mapping style. So far I've got one song done well, but it was the Expert that was done well, and I need to get the other difficulties done as well as the Expert.
I was trying to map a Love Live song by the way, but I decided to scrap that since I quit Love Live. Now I don't know what to map to continue improving my mapping style... (that is not Fuzzy Future, since I'm already working on it as a means of improving my style)
Mapping style to be improved
Need to learn to map other difficulties below Insane and Expert
Relieve me of this General Secondary Certificate and I will continue improving
I guess I'm out for real, but you can still see me in osu!Discord
do i map? yes do i enjoy it? sometimes do i like my creations? watch me love it for 1 week and then proceed to gradually hate it as time passes. do i enjoy watching people suffer as i put unreasonable 300bpm jumps? yes
can i meme? 5/7 of the time.
do i enjoy looking for BNs? end me
but i seriously think people would go into mapping a bit more if the community was a bit less rude

Probably 90-95% of my time spent on osu is in the editor, either mapping, modding or testing. I really enjoy the freedom of creativity, and if, at the end, you have something you can be proud of, something that other people like, it's a great feeling to know that you contributed to the growth of the game.
Currently mapping mostly CtB as we lack in maps and modders but also some Std, plus that one all-mode set that I will rank eventually... stares into the distance
