osu!supporter promotional image

osu!supporter (or the osu!supporter tag) is a temporary title given to players who support osu! by making a voluntary, monetary donation to help it thrive. Supporters receive a handful of cosmetic and technical benefits, most of which are active only when the title is present. The extra features from osu!supporter do not give any advantage in gameplay, performance, or score, and never will.

The osu!supporter tag may be obtained from the osu!supporter store page.


Heart badge

Profile with osu!supporter

Supporters get a badge with hearts on it, usually found next to their username on the website. The amount of hearts depends on the duration of osu!supporter the user has acquired or received in total:

  • Less than 1 year: 1 heart
  • From 1 to 5 years: 2 hearts
  • More than 5 years: 3 hearts

Username colour

A person with osu!supporter in the chat

Usernames of active supporters appear bright yellow in chat for other users.

Editable profile section

Supporters receive a new profile section titled me!, often referred to as a userpage. The userpage serves as a personal editable space, where text is formatted using BBCode. This feature is permanent and stays editable even after osu!supporter wears out.

The me! section may be a good place for:

  • Banners, collabs, and infographics to spice up the profile
  • A few paragraphs or items providing insights into a player's life
  • A showcase of favourite maps, mappers, or anything else they consider important

Profile cover

Supporters can further customise their profile by setting a cover image:

  • Press the pencil icon in the lower right corner of the cover placeholder.
  • Select a new cover from a few predefined options, or upload a custom image (its dimensions should be 2400x640).

Once osu!supporter expires, the cover will remain, but cannot be changed.

One free username change

Note: Minor name changes may be requested from the account support team for free — see Help centre/Account § Can I change my account's username?.

Getting osu!supporter comes with the ability to change usernames for free for the first time, under usual conditions.

The recipient is not notified of who gave them the tag, but when gifting osu!supporter, an optional message can be attached to be sent alongside the notification email.


After the transaction is completed, there will be a new event in the Recent Activity section in the profile of both the giver and the recipient:

  • {username} has supported osu! - thanks for your generosity! if it is the first time the user gets osu!supporter or gifts it to someone else.
  • {username} has once again chosen to support osu! - thanks for your generosity! if the user has been an osu!supporter or gifted it before.
  • {username} has received the gift of osu!supporter! in case the tag was gifted.

The giver can also hide this event from their own profile by ticking Hide all osu!supporter tags in this order from my activity during checkout. This is useful for gifting anonymously because it prevents the recipient from cross-checking profile activity.

Additionally, both the giver and the recipient will receive email notifications mentioning the purchase.
