Default "Chart" not "Step"

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 Our community has been around for many years now, and old habits are hard to break, but I think anything that is outdated (and ultimately detrimental to the game's image) should be fixed, especially if it requires virtually no major effort to do so.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 stepped a file
i stepped a song
i stepped a chart
i charted a step
i charted a file
i charted a chart
i charted a song
i sharted a shart

does it matter
ffr is an adaptation of a dance game. "flash flash revolution" vs. "dance dance revolution" there's a couple similarities

also, detrimental to the game's image is a good point if we had a more active userbase i think

The game that we are delivering content is usually for people to play is Stepmania. If they're not playing StepMania, they're playing on pad, which well... you know.

basic answer: neither chart nor step is incorrect
