Hello fellow osu! players. Thank you for taking the time to look at this post. I have an assignment project in my science tecnology engineering (-ish) class that involves designing and developing a case for a video game controller according to researched user needs. So, I have decided to design a keyboard (controller) specifically for osu!. Probably not a full keyboard but something like a keypad.

So anyway, I need user needs to base my design on. And that all comes from surveys. If you would please take further time to answer this short, 10 question survey, I would greatly appreciate it!

Please type your answers onto a reply with the corresponding question number. Don't worry about the preliminary questions because obviously y'all play osu and (most likely) with a keyboard. I need at at least 8-10 complete responses.
