This is just a suggestion.

It would be nice if there is a view / download count on the page of every tab:

For tabs, chords = view count
For powertabs and GP tabs = download count

, so that the rating will not be the only basis of the accuracy of the tab.

this is just a suggestion, please let me know what y'all think ;p

Hmm, I actually like that idea. I can't imagine it hasn't been brought up already, but I haven't seen anything... That way, you could see how many people comments or actually rated the tab versus the total people who viewed it.

I like the idea, but just because a tab has been looked at a lot doesn't exactly mean it's a good tab.

I like the idea, but just because a tab has been looked at a lot doesn't exactly mean it's a good tab.Exactly. The top 100 Most Viewed tabs are almost always pretty poor. The only reason why they're viewed so much is because they're viewed so much. Thus, the incorrect Stairway to Heaven intro or the incorrect Under the Bridge (even though there's a less popular five-star one) continue to get more hits.

Is it necessary at all?

The views would just be proportional to the number of people who rated it.

Proportional (adj):

If two amounts are proportional, they change at the same rate so that the relationship between them does not change
