  • Not really sure why half the tab gets deleted when "Manually highlight chords" is enabled. I posted this comment in my last tab submission, but it's probably better to post here.
  • (Also my input, I don't know where it originally begun ) I think users should be registered in order to submit tabs or at least the "Allow other contributors to improve this tab" should be ticked.
  • I would also highly recommend doing tabs on some text editor. Guarantee no loss of content. Once done, just copy and paste into the "Create new tab" page. I only don't know why you'd use the webpage over a text editor, at least at this stage it's very basic and there are bugs

Try a different browser; it's likely that something in the browser's getting backed up, not the UG system.

Unregistered users' tabs have that box auto-ticked.

If so, I don't understand everyone else's complaints then. I was unaware of this.

I also think providing the album title the song is featured on, or a YouTube link would be extremely helpful. For example, if a popular artist does a "Live Acoustic", which one would it be, you know?

Thanks.

Mostly not for editing. That was a pretty stupid update to be honest. Send me to the whitest background in the world, sure, but when I click the tab you should bring me to the tab, not the edit of the tab. Thank you.

As you wish :-)
Now tabs on "My Contribution page" link to tab on site. Also added Edit button for quick editing.

This was my first contribution. It was rejected as a duplicate. There were 11 Versions of the Song "A Whiter Shade of Pale" None have the Keyboard part and some are just wrong.

Asked to look at he difference and I assume now the Green Highlight is my stuff and the Pink the Difference?

In any case... Nobody has the Keyboard part. That is mine! Took a little while. As I said I wrote it because there was not full version as I was looking for one! So I thought if someone else was looking then this would be great for them. I could also find it on my App as well and put into a Playlist.

Then I had someone say Rate First before Appeal 3???? Love any help on that!

Thanks. Tell me what to Rate?

When there are a lot of already existing tabs and they have a good rating, a new submission might be rejected a bit quickly without too much analyzing, so you have to explain why yours is worth keeping.
After posting a tab, you can add a comment to explain why it's different from existing ones, did you add a comment explaining why ?

I guess the user told you to rate the other tabs. Indeed, if you checked them all and are not satisfied, you should at least rate them (if you already did that, great !).

Have the amount of steps listed in the intro step by step tutorial. It lets the user know how many steps there are.

Just wondering how to advance to Level IV contributor? The criteria says "10 approved 'high quality' tabs" ... what's the definition of 'high quality'? For reference, ~75% of my 30 rated tabs have five stars, with none below 3.

This has been asked countless times, but I never saw a definitive answer, only speculation.
It looks like it's on a case-by-case basis, without real clear rule, on totally subjective criteria (it seems that some people with a lot of 5-star tabs are still level III)... Maybe a manual process.

About the new interface : it's nice but it's a bit annoying to completely change the page design depending on what page you land on.
I like the new pages but you could work a little on keeping an uniform design (grey / black theme instead of all this white.

And I don't understand what is the "Need your help" number on the Dashboard. It displays the number 215,419 but nothing happens when I click on it.
What is it supposed to represent ?

On the TPA, move the buttons ABOVE the Tab Pro part for Guitar Pro files. If you have Guitar Pro, you download the tabs to evaluate them, you don't scroll down and it's not obvious where those buttons are.
Or maybe move them above / under the "Votes & comments" section, which would be more logical.

Hi,
i have 18 approved tabs and 10 which are deemed 5* at least once,does this mean i should now be level 4 ? i am currently level 3.
I would also like to take the opportunity to say i like the new interface,it is easy to use and without doubt is the easiest internet site to use.
Many Thanks
Mark W

Under some band pages there is an Album View, which is really cool. But I can't find a way to submit tabs under an album, so
Suggestion: Add an album metadata field during the submission process
Suggestion 2: Allow albums to be favourited (Which in turn will sync the whole album to the mobile apps!)

As for reaching Contributor Level 4. It's up to the UG team probably.

OH WAIT WHAT!?!

If that were to be the case, isn't it abit misleading.
Firstly where would you specify what the album name is (Plus album art, etc? )
And it's labelled as "Part of the Song", which to me, given the other options, sounds like a description of what is in the song, rather than what the song is part of.

I like the site and have used it for some time, and now I try and contribute to it.I started off using the android app on my tablet and now use it on my PC as well.I'm hopeless at remembering songs so this site is a blessing.

I think the rating system is way off. I'm sure people are milking the ratings with multiple accounts. And I usually find that the last version of a song is not always but a lot of the time the best and most accurate. And there are far too many chord tabs that don't have the chords for all the lyrics.

Report them. That's against TOS.

That's why people usually make later versions.

The formatting guidelines changed 1.5-2.5 years ago, so that's what you're seeing.
