No Steps Allowed
 
This is a public service announcement to remind people to try to remember to use "chart" and "charting" instead of "step" or "stepping". For example, "I found a really cool song, so I decided to chart it." or "I decided to make a chart for that song I heard on the radio."

This is arguably being pretty anal but we need to start making the transition to break away from the connotation of being some adaptation of a dance game, which we are not. Stepping is an action done with feet, not with fingers. Arrows matter on a pad, which indicate direction of where the button is located, but they don't matter on a keyboard when you're playing spread-style. Our community has been around for many years now, and old habits are hard to break, but I think anything that is outdated (and ultimately detrimental to the game's image) should be fixed, especially if it requires virtually no major effort to do so.

EDIT: "map" also works too, or any other word as long as it sorta makes sense

I don't care what they're called, they just have to not be trash.

Also similar argument could be made against 'chart' or 'map':
"Don't use step because that's for feet"
"Don't use map because that's for directions"
"Don't use chart because that's for representing different data"
It's overall the same stuff.

step, stepping
map, mapping
chart, charting
simfile, simfiling

they are all interchangeable & the same, depends on which section of the community you came from. Osu & Quaver players tend to use 'map' more, ITG/PIU/pad players tend to use 'step', keyboard players tend to use 'chart'.

No, this isn't blanket permission to start treating them as profiling words, because like I said, they're interchangeable.

Y'all are beta troglodytes

You tell stories with the files. They are novels. When you are making one you are writing

"Dang this song would tell a good story I'm going to write a novel for it"

You fucks
