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
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 itthe 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,That were my thoughts too.
but I don't like when we make exceptions for a mapset and then disallow others from doing the same thing
No reason the contest cant be referenced in the description of the map rather than the difficulty nameshonestly 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.
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.
