I feel like 'light' and 'many' are a bit misleading at times.

'Many' suggests it uses a big amount of custom samples by itself. 'Many' should probably be renamed to 'mostly' and 'light' should probably be renamed to 'slightly'. That way, uploaders will know that it's less about the raw amount and more about the percentage.

My work not in progress hack Kubakku.

I'm not sure Mostly and Slightly are the best pair of words for this, though I will agree that Many and Light are not necessarily paired well together. Perhaps "Many" and "Few", or "Heavy" and "Light" would be better combinations.

I don't know any better words that imply percentage rather than amount.

I don't think the word "mostly" or "most" works for some of the ports in the section that are labeled as "many". Some of these songs that use less custom samples than SMW samples are classified as "many", even though it mostly uses SMW samples. "Most" means more than half, unless the idea is to use the word "most" in a loose sense.

Then why are they classified as 'many' in the first place?

I think "Many" and "Heavy" sound better than "Most". If a port uses 4 custom samples out of 8, it's half and therefore any of the first two terms are more accurate. I do agree with FPzero, we should have the words paired better.

I guess the tag "Yes" in "Sampled" column was changed to "Many" and not all of the old submissions that use slight amount of samples have "Many" changed to "Light".
Wanted to post an update on my hack for 2000 posts, but well, there goes my plan, unfortunately.

Sure, it might have a better ring to it, but it's still a bit misleading. If 'slight' and 'mostly' don't have a good ring to it, then if it's changed to something that does, I wouldn't care as long as it implies proportion and percentage rather than amount.
