I guess I miss a lot of useful and updated guides out there.
Please let me know if you have them, no matter they are on the forum or not.

Could I get links to the guides in the old guide compendium? It seems only moderators have access to it while normal users like myself don't. I do think this new one is more up to date but I feel some of the guides in the older one which aren't included in this one were more friendly to beginners.
posted
Which one specifically? I have already included all those which are up-to-dates in this compendium.
posted
Ehh... Can't remember, there were a few under basic guides and timing

Ok, I bring it back and put the link under the General session. Hope I have resolved your issue.

Thank you~

What does Ctrl+F do? Does not do anything for me.

It is a shortcut for searching keywords in a webpage.

Ok.

I dont know if its only me but beatmapping is extremely hard for a beginner all these dont help at all.All the beatmappers play this game very long time and new players (1-2years) dont make beatmaps and if that happens is extremely rare.Its not by chance that almost noone makes beatmaps.The procedure is long and hard.

I started mapping seriously 1 year after I Arrived. Many other mappers who are much better than me started mapping even sooner than that. However after a quick inspection of your profile I've found that you haven't even been playing this game for a month. While you can try to beatmap now I'd advise just trying to get better at the game first. Beatmapping isn't the least bit difficult, in fact it's quite easy once you know what you're doing. You just find it difficult because you don't know what to do. You should first find out what to do but you can't do that if you barely have any experience playing. Also from your post I get the impression that you didn't even bother to read the guides properly.

t/331416 Is this useful enough?

Should i really read this even if i cant understand most of it :/
Really trying to become better but its frustrating reading all this text and still not understading a thing it says, or is it normal?

pishi has some up to date video tutorials on his profile they'd be a good addition to the compendium.
