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.

Roles and responsibilities

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.

The rest of the team helps with quality control, maintenance, and organisation.

Team members

clayton and huu oversee the project, write news and forum posts, maintain the public spreadsheets, and help moderate discussions about Loved. Noffy and hypercyte check metadata of beatmaps that will go up for voting. The rest of the team are captains:

osu!standard captains

  • Toy created the original team of captains in September 2017 along with the Captain's Pick system that was later renamed to Project Loved. Until late 2019, he oversaw and managed the whole project.
  • There is a Project Loved user group on the website with group ID 31, but the listing is not public. It is used for permissions to moderate the Project Loved forum and promote beatmaps to the Loved category, and the only members are clayton, huu, and Toy.
