Delete elements on a regular basis. I've been playing on black backgrounds on other rhythm games and I still prefer to keep it that way.

Deleting storybaords, backgrounds and skins is possible due to the currently open nature of beatmaps. Without getting into a debate over what is right or wrong, I would like to know the general ratio of people who do this -- mainly to reinforce my beliefs that the number isn't as high as some people think.

If you make a post starting any kind of debate it will be removed.

If you choose the last option, providing examples of maps is highly encouraged!

I play no vid

No video is perma on.

Only thing that really bothers me are some of the custom skins. I prefer my own skin most of the time ;)

I delete backgrounds when they are suggestive or borderline-NSFW as I play osu! in my living room.

Hell no !
If anything, I add a custom skin, video, or SB to maps that deserve it. No deleting things here, unless they make maps REALLY unplayable.

I've only ever deleted HORRIBLY distracting SBs, such as ones that move around, which can REALLY be bad on taiko, and a skin that just made playing painful, because it was half transparent.

I delete pretty much all of that. Screw owner's skins. I'm going to play how I want to play.

Say for example - Infected Mushroom - Becoming Insane has a annoying strobing effect which annoys me. I had to delete the flashing.

Same applied to Alice Deejay - Better Off Alone

Maybe there should be a rule to not use these types of strobing..for anyone!!

I only deleted the BG on StrangeProgram. Too headache-inducing...

.osb editing. As long as I don't touch the .osu, I can insert however many SB elements I want in an already ranked map without breaking it for me. :>

I am not one for deleting map elements. But I often replace them with a properly colored/better/easier to see ones. Or sometimes replace a normal video with another of a higher quality. Some backgrounds are really difficult to tolerate, being in a household with three children under ten years of age, those I delete/replace with similarly colored,"Safer" ones. Though, to be honest, I could also live with not being able to delete or change anything -- it will not make life much harder, I would simply have to disregard such maps/give them a low rating for their inability to provide a level of entertainment that reaches all ages and is unrestricting to play. (I sometimes try to suggest better options to the "offending" mapper when feasible)

Update: I rename map elements only when trying to play something with HR or DT. It makes everything easier because I can then read the followpoints, so I can read the map a lot better. I'll put it back when I'm done though. :?

(Now I completely understand why a lot of pro players delete stuff, HR and DT are practically impossible if you add a BG~ o.o)
