i think leaving the names as sample text is interesting, it kinda makes me wanna study who did which diffs/parts depending on the participants mapping style
"Collab X" achieves the same effect

Collab X doesnt show any correlation to the contest. Also correct it does achieve the same effect, therefore theres no difference which one is used. Apart from the fact that "Sample Text X" relates to their team name and "Collab X" no as such.

No reason the contest cant be referenced in the description of the map rather than the difficulty names

Examples of this include: Every contest in the past including official osu! ones. No reason this contest is any more special and should warrant special treatment.

As far as I'm aware other contests didn't offer the same theme as this one did, the osu!International Mapping Contest was solely focused on team effort, hence why there were team names in the first place. You say there's no reason... yet that is one of the reason as to why the names are like that. Think of it it this way even if it was called "Collab X" or "Sample Text X" both would represent team effort, the one factor that makes "Sample Text X" stand out more from "Collab X" is that it has a theme begind it

the thing is if you allow someone to have names like this, then u need to allow everyone to use them

also this is basically the same as p/5513850 , just do the same thing as monstrata. Then again I don't really mind the names,
but I don't like when we make exceptions for a mapset and then disallow others from doing the same thing

That were my thoughts too.

I kinda see the diff naming as more of Guest difficulty here. But as a group instead of individual. GD also need the player to search who's the guest mapper if they want to know. In a sense, a group is also the same.

In monstrata's case, he was using someone's name that never map the diff in the first place as GD, but this map actually using group that all the member has contributed to the map in some extent, both are different.

For me I 'd love having the current diff naming, It kinda emphasize more on the map that just won contest that's been acknowledged from the osu staff (since the title given only can exist if the contest got approved).

Also not everyone can win anyway, I' would prefer winning map that other player will at least be remembered more and special on its way for winning instead of using plain collab / normal - extra all over again and blend with other rank map in general.

Is this really going to get ranked with no response from either the QAT or any of the mappers?
posted
apologies for being so untimely on checking these things

the diffnames are misleading for everyone downloading via direct and that they're a reference to any sort of thing going on in the community isn't apparent - they don't really add much information that you couldn't have put elsewhere where people that care about it read it anyways

since you never bothered replying to the actual conversation on your mapthread please figure this out and get me back to requalified
apologies for wasting two weeks of everyone's time ffs

There were some happens mapset ranked included a diff which can't know who did make it is like https://osu.ppy.sh/s/360417 the highest diff.

My name is not existing on the diff name even though I made the diff. But that didn't become an issue because the mapset owner explained it the diff was made by me enough in the map description section.

As someone said it, I think it's players' fault if they got a problem with the diff name because they didn't try anything to know it.

Some mappers want to show a creative in various ways like unique diff name like in this case.

We need to respect them while it's not violating any rules.

Keeping "Sample Text" is fine imo, but there needs to be a clear indication of the whole TEAM thing in the actual difficulty names.
posted
sorry, seems like i was unsubscribed to the thread.

would be cool if i could just keep Sample Text but seems like it's always about assuming the worst. i don't think it's fair to assume how this will open up to abuse, i mean, that's what nominators are for, to keep things in check if they do get out of hand. i really just wanted to have a way to show how the whole set is a team effort, which Collab wouldn't actually get across in my opinion. in my eyes, the whole team thing it's pretty much abundantly clear as it is, anyone who's even the slightly confused would probably take a few seconds of his time to find out what 'Sample Text' is and would be greeted with a clear explanation in the description.

will adding 'Team Sample Text's xxx' suffice?

honestly if i had the power to do something like this I would be more than happy to. right now it's kind of a compromise.

and also, this.
posted
for me that would be sufficient but i also think it's rather stupid to do to begin with because Team Sample Text doesn't add any information to the difficulties, i don't know who made them or if all of them are collaborations or not would be great to label stuff in the game or something if there's certain parts being done by certain people.

and that info really isnt anywhere

Info on who is in the team is shown clearly in the description okorin


I also think adding team might be even better than the before one
