ok for a real response

unless we set the minimum drain time to 0 seconds (which we aren't gonna do for obvious reasons) there will always be songs too short for rank that need to be extended. 30sec is already really short, and pretty much set as "the barest of bare minimums". if you dont want to extend your mp3 to reach the minimum time, then map a song with like, an actual length.

the sb hs extension shouldn't have happened and i'll be keeping a closer eye on similar shit like that in the future ^^'

what i am trying to say is that 25s is a better threshold for barest of bare minimums because many official releases of anime tv size songs are shorter than 30s. pretending they aren't actual songs because of some arbitrary number in your head that qualifies them as actual songs not being met doesn't make sense. if an official release of a song is 28 seconds long then that is how long the actual song is lol.

map an actual song, 30 seconds is already barely a song and I don't think theres a need to put the minimum even lower than it already is

sure i guess

2029: proposal - 20s length

no thanks

how about you map full length songs or non-anime songs like there's 294067206 songs out there that are over 30 seconds anything below that is a voice sample with extra tones added

on a side note whilst im here: quality > popularity

As others have said, 30s is already incredibly short and barely passes for a “song”, making that any lower kinda sucks

As long as I understand some songs are extremely close to 30 seconds and the BNs and QATs might turn a blind eye on such cases when these are official TV Sizes or cut versions, mapping something that is as short as 25 seconds is quite a weird idea. I do understand some songs or melodies are very short but with tendencies our community has in a year or two we are going to be mapping 10-second audio samples instead of legitimate songs, so I'd rather we stop on 30 seconds. If somebody wants to map those samples, sure, just loop them so they last long enough. Extending songs for the sake of ranking it is not that dumb if someone wants to map a song and rank it because they like it and the ranking criteria say the drain time must be equal to 30 seconds or more.

The idea is good, under the premise that there won't be 24 second maps that are gonna be extended to 25 seconds to fit the minimum drain time. I don't think a 5 sec difference matters at this point, considering 30 seconds is still very short. Most extensions sound really bad and it's noticeable that the song was extended so it would be a good idea to avoid this.

Just map the full version of the song lol. 30s is already a very low requirement and should not be further lowered to cater to one or two people’s needs. 30s maps already make for an unsatisfying experience and I see no reason to further reduce the minimum amount of map required to reach rank.

I'd rather have that apply only to songs which do not have a longer ver available
agree with the idea behind this, but I think it could instead apply to audio which is clearly a complete song despite being under 30 seconds-- after all, the reason for this lower bound of 30 seconds in the first place is just to stop people from ranking ridiculously low-effort cuts of good songs (and some scoring issues, presumably)

I'm not sure exactly how to word it, but I think a better rule would allow anything over 30 seconds, as well as official cuts or clearly-complete songs under 30 seconds (Myxo's map, harumachi clover TV Size, ...)

I don't like how Myxo extended the map, but he was going to have to do it somehow, whether that be adding notes, repeating part of the song, etc. so I think RC should just not require mappers to do any of that

however a possible gray area I see in my suggestion is that someone could compose a ""real song"" that's like 10 seconds and rank it. so idk. maybe a hard lower bound is required, if not the collective common sense of BNs to not rank stuff like that

I consider it more to be a demo sound than an actual "song". 25 sec? Huh....

25s seems a bit arbitrary becuase then all that would happen is people start trying to rank 24s songs, and then the problem repeats itself. since nao said that the main purpose is to cater for the inconvenient songs that are just below the rankable minimum (because for some reason song artists cant count to 30), we could just make exceptions based on the song, if there's nothing else available, and if the difference is small i.e. ~1s or so
posted
making case by case exceptions is just gonna lead to more moronic reddit threads honestly. and do you really trust qats to handle case by case things consistently? XD

@ everyone saying to map a real song: i map plenty of long songs and i also happen to enjoy mapping anime openings, some of which are 28 or 29 seconds of audio in their official release. if that isn't a real song to you then feel free to not play them lol.

obviously i am not trying to get ppl to rank 25s cuts, the point is that the official release of some songs IS LESS THAN 30 SECONDS and having to fuck with the song in some way to rank it is stupid. the rule can simply be, if the official release / tv size of the song is less than 30 seconds then it does not need to be edited to 30s to be rankable. i can show you plenty of maps where not editing the song would result in a perfectly viable 29 second long song. it's just easier than having to extend a synth note at the end which sounds awful or add in a piano note or whistles or something.

u do realize that sooner or later there will be similar shit with 20 second songs and 15 second songs right?

its just a matter of respect to the rules tbh

when you see Lasse ranking shit with snap issues, then some unmodded shit at all, and then this - no shit you gonna be questioning whether they are there for Quality or for lols

this mapping game is such a joke now, it used to be laughable a year ago when sotarks' circlejerk came into QAT, now its just depressing

And you know, whats even more depressing is that all QAT > NAT restructure took a fucking 6 months of time and still not done yet.

Ephemeral been always telling me "stagnancy is our enemy" shit but how come on earth it take so much fucking time to figure out whats wrong and whats not, who cares about the game standards and who doesnt? Like, come the fuck on.

New year, same shit.

As you said, changing the rule in order to allow songs shorter than 30 seconds to be ranked if it's an official release/tv size version would work because it would disallow artificial cuts of that length.
How about something like
Every difficulty of a beatmapset must have a minimum drain time of 30 seconds unless the official release of the song is shorter than 30 seconds.
