OK, I've been on here recently to see why my tab wasn't getting accepted. There was no good reason. And now, with 8 positive votes and 1 negative, my Lost tab by Avenged Sevenfold has been denied again! Why? What's the point in the voting system if the votes don't even get considered!?

Because there is already a good 5-star rated on in the archive and there's no need for another?

Jesus I've been over this. Why would people vote for a tab unless it was better than the others? This system is appauling.

Why not pretend that you're submitting a live version?

It's a great way to trick the UG staff, without, of course lying.

Most live performances are carbon copies of studio songs :)

People don't vote accept on a tab because it's better than the ones in the archive, they vote accept because they think it's a decent tab.

In your case, people may have thought it was a good tab but isn't there already a 5 star tab for that song?

the votes are used as a guidance. if there's 20 yes votes and there's no decent tab for it in the archive, chance are it'll be accepted.

this system is not apalling. Yes, people do take the other tabs on the site into account when voting, or I know I do. If they didnt, you would get hundreds of exactly the same tab

it's still up to the staff to add them so you wouldn't get hundreds of the same tab.

What happens is the votes act as a guide, and then those in charge of the tabs (namely Dhuya) decides which ones are added and which are rejected. If there is already a perfectly good tab for the song, then chances are it won't be accepted, the voting just shows that the tab is correct. If there are many more rejects than accept votes, then the tab is much more likely to be ignored and not added.

It's not appalling at all, grow up. Why don't you look at it in the light that you obviously have some skill in tabbing, else you wouldn't get so many positive votes, but you're just not tabbing the songs that the site has more need of.

I think your tab wasn't getting accepted because we already have 2 tabs with high rating that are more detailed than yours.
