So this is not an issue but beatmap nominators dont follow their own rules weather for approval or not, alot of these rule are in the ranking critrtia page, which you can find here:
https://osu.ppy.sh/help/wiki/Ranking_Criteria

the ranking procedure can be found here:
https://osu.ppy.sh/help/wiki/Submission/Beatmap_Ranking_Procedure\


some of these rules include:
1.maps being longer then 5 minates ranked. the procedure states "Following up from ranked, a BN can approve these beatmaps if they are longer than 5 minutes long (aka marathon beatmaps) and/or that do not follow the ranking criteria but are considered "okay" by a BN"
2. audio files, i only saw this be the case once, but then again it was approved. even so the criteria states" A beatmapset may only contain one song file used by all difficulties. Multiple song files within a single beatmap set is unsupported and results in unexpected behaviour with preview times, metadata, etc" the map that i saw that did this was approved anyway so yeah.
3. this rule has been taken lightly so much but its the background image. the criteria states "You must have a background image on every difficulty of your beatmap. Different background files for different difficulties is acceptable."



thats all I have. I just thought id make you aware....

1. I dont find anything about this old "approval" rules as it is now changed with a more dynamic system. it is clearly stated in the sub-part of "beatmapset" rules

If the drain time of the highest difficulty is...

...lower than 3:30, the lowest difficulty of each included game mode cannot be harder than a Normal. Because osu!mania does not have a difficulty-specific Ranking Criteria yet, an osu!mania beatmapset's Normal difficulty is defined as a difficulty below 2.00 stars. For hybrid beatmapsets that include osu! difficulties, the additional modes’ lowest difficulties cannot be harder than a Hard.
...between 3:30 and 4:15, the lowest difficulty of each included game mode cannot be harder than a Hard.
...between 4:15 and 5:00, the lowest difficulty of each included game mode cannot be harder than an Insane.
...anything higher, the beatmapset is exempt from reasonable spread rules.

this change is as recent as 3 months ago so if you actually not aware, re-read the rules.

2. Which one? the only thing that multi audio files is allowed is Loved section. and thats where all exception on the Ranking Criteria goes.

3. Not sure which one of this part are complaint

Who in the world wrote this.


What maps are you referring to? If there is something recent (nothing from few years ago) then please elaborate the cases where BNs seemingly broke these rules.
