I map alot, but I find it very hard to find modders (or even playtesters o.O) for hard mania 4k maps .-.

If you're planning on mapping, I wonder what's been stopping you from pursuing it so far ;o.

Timing can be quite a hurdle for new mappers, but I recently discovered statementreply's timing analyzer: https://osu.ppy.sh/u/126198. It's surprisingly accurate when the song is a single bpm but won't work as well on variable bpm songs. (Generally speaking though, mapping variable-bpm songs as your first map isn't the best idea)

I'm hoping to see more new faces in the qualified section xD. I can't really name any "2016 mappers" that weren't also 2015/2014 mappers aswell.
I happen to use that program since the past 1 or 2 years.
ehh, mapping is fun. except the ranking part of it
Back into mapping since my pc has been fixed~

That the term meme is overused and that that would be one of your presumed reasons because apparently it exists?
I'm new but I don't really have any plans to do mapping
I try to map sometimes. Not very good at it, though.
Currently mapping more than playing.
mapping started as a fun thing when I was bored with playing but then became an interesting thing to follow and practice with
Started to map actively around a month ago. Currently trying to achieve my first ranked map which seems to be a hell of a hard achievement to get so far.
I map right now... but I map something, that some (actually all from cz & sk) people call "shitmaps"... C:
I chart a decent amount for osu!mania, albeit mainly stupid tournament warmups, but on occasion it's a serious thing.
I'd probably do it more-so if the editor wasn't to be so annoying to use, yet that's why I'm anticipating osu!next.

Trying to find willing playtesters is a pain, though, without trying to annoy people.
I map mostly for myself for fun, and because osu needs more video game songs :)
I'd also love to get them ranked but ranking is such a pain...
Mapping since 3 years ago
Had a break (no inspiration) 2 months ago, but I'm back now ^_^
I tried mapping, but I never submitted it. I've seen how some high-profile maps that I'd call absolutely flawless get unranked again and again, so as a complete newbie what chance do I ever have of getting something ranked? It's a complete waste of time, so I'm not sure if I actually want to map anything.
I stick to mapping strictly for o!m
don't really enjoy playing anymore but mapping has always been therapeutic for me and I enjoy mapping esoteric and just generally leftfield music
