^WTF is that? I don't have that one

Mine looks like this, as of the last week or so:



I don't care much for it as I go there to read news etc (it's not gonna make me submit more tabs) but it's not a big deal. What is this, UG turning into an RPG?

I got a weird email the other day too. ^ Not as weird as that one.



It's weird because obviously, I did not request a notification for this tab, let alone, know what song that is.

I'd really take comfort knowing this was just some bug and not someone taking my email or something like that.

I also got an email like sam b got about a support ticket. I got it when I rated a tab 2 stars.

I've been wondering if something could be done about Spam in the Tab Approval Queue. Someone previously posted a thread about it in the Advertising forum, which I replied to. But this is probably a more appropriate area for that issue to be brought forth.
Here is the link to the topic addressing the spam issue:

Another thing that keeps coming up for me regarding the tab queue.
I often try to make suggestions or corrections to the authors of tabs submitted for approval -- And whether it's formatting issues, incorrect tablature, typos, or titling issues(song, artist)... I'd say 90% of the time I make those suggestions, they go unanswered and mistakes go uncorrected. Nobody ever seems to think to check on the tabs they've submitted for approval. Or they just naturally expect that they'd be notified of such things because they receive notifications when the tab is submitted, approved or rejected.
So people eventually end up getting their tab rejected, or it sits in the queue for a week or longer because the author is unresponsive when an issue arises. Only after the tab is rejected and the author appeals the rejection do they typically see the comments that had been made.
It just seems to me offering at least the OPTION of e-mail notification of comments on tabs awaiting approval could help to speed up the process and maybe even improve the quality of the tabs being approved.

Excellent site!
Is there an option for the actual music notation for those of us who read?

Yes, but you will need purchase and download Guitar Pro or download the free application PowerTab. Ultimate-Guitar does not sell Guitar Pro, it simply uses the program as a means to read tab and musical notation.

Not every tab has been transcribed with Guitar Pro or Power Tab. I think you can make a request and hope someone fulfils.

Thank you again AngryGoldfish,i have both 'Guitar Pro' and 'PowerTab' but still can't work out how to see the music notation rather than the Tab's? (sorry bit of a tech dummy) any help would be greatly appreciated

What version of Guitar Pro do you have? If it's a genuine copy of 6, I can't help you specifically as I only have the 5th edition. It may be the same however, so go up to View at the top menu bar and make sure Hide Standard Notation is not highlighted or selected.
