the biggest problem i always had about submitting mp3 is that theres no way to play it back on hardware again, while every other chip formats on botb require hardware compatible files and even gets people to downvote mp3-only-submissions. it feels very off, at least for me, to allow it for gameboy, especially while there are a lot of solutions to play back gameboy stuff, like gbs, gb and vgm (and people shared lsdj-songfiles as well iirc)
i get that this is because some people are actually unable to provide these files, when they run lsdj on their gameboy, even though they still made it on a real gameboy but then again, we also have ntrq as a native nes tracker format and submitting the .sav is required for this.
i also dont like how i would technically be unable to verify if a track was really made in LSDJ on a gameboy, or if it was just a VST in a DAW. is it still a gameboy track then? or just fakebit? (i dont wanna start this discussion here, its just what is on my mind everytime i see a mp3 gameboy submission)
i dont actually care about it that much, since im not a gameboy expert or maniac, but saying "mp3 not allowed" on over 60+ formats while keeping gameboy as an exception feels very arbitrary to me
