Project Loved Team

The Project Loved Team are members of the osu! community who manage Project Loved, the voting platform that promotes beatmaps to the Loved category. They are distinguished by their usergroup badge that reads LVD and the username colour that is candy pink on the forums.

The Project Loved group page lists all of the team members.


The Project Loved Team mostly consists of captains for each game mode. Captains are responsible for nominating beatmaps to the Loved category and act as representatives for the community in having a good sense of which maps to choose. They also write short descriptions about the nominated maps to help readers get a feel for each map in case they have not seen or played them before.






Coordinators are mainly responsible for making sure all the captains work together to run Project Loved smoothly. They write news and forum posts, maintain tools, and help moderate discussions about Loved.

Beatmap metadata reviewers

Metadata reviewers check through every beatmap that will be put up for voting, and work with mappers to fix any mistakes before the maps are potentially moved to Loved.

Beatmap content moderators

Content moderators consist of dedicated Global Moderation Team and Nomination Assessment Team members that take part in the assessment of the visual and aural content included in the beatmaps that will be put up for voting.
