then it isnt a custom song since the song wasnt meant for that map

changed the description to include mapping contest original songs

- a map of an osu original song that isnt the map the song was made for wouldnt count for this descriptor. I dont see why this possibility would make this descriptor invalid.
- Another descriptor for osu originals would be a good idea, but that doesnt change the validity of this descriptor
- I could change it to commissioned track as that is what most (if not all) custom songs currently are, but there are possibilites fr a custom song not to be commisioned, such as the beatmap creator making the song

rename this to commisioned tracks?

yea deca's idea makes sense, splitting to osu! original for officially licenced and something like community original for the rest

using "custom" kinda limits the descriptor for tournaments when it could be used for mapping contests (like twin trials for example)

seems like this could just be split into two descriptors then: "osu! original" and "custom song" (or if other people have better ideas for names) perhaps for fully original mapsets vs just "song made for osu!"
