The forums are the only thing I use these days. Maybe a chord chart here and there.

It has tabs when I need them, it has news articles, which are shitty, but they do keep me up to date with whats going on and who has a new album. The forums have stuff to read. The pit is funny about 15% of the time.

Also theres a sexy teacher lady in the add on the front page. (Anyone happen to know who that is?)

Let's see...
- the staff are incompetent and make money off user submitted content without notice or permission
- good tabs often get rejected for dumb reasons while shit tabs often get accepted without a hitch
- most the forum users are insufferable douchebags.

Yeah, love it.

You seriously think that?

Quote:

I am not involved in that, but I imagine that you get a reason why your tabs weren't rejected and I doubt they are 'dumb' - probably valid reasons, but with the huge number of tabs submitted it will always be tough for a group of people to be 100% consistent with what is accepted and what isn't.

UG goes in phases for me. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's not, and sometimes I have no other choice.

"Think"? Both are observable facts, but I wouldn't expect a mod to confirm it.

An equally expected response.

Thanks for the life lesson, but I'm actually comparing this website to other websites

Eh, most people waste their time on Facebook, I waste it here. So if it wasn't for the pit, I'd be even more bored than I am. Plus the tabs come in handy if I need to learn something real quick.

7/10 will keep coming here.

Well, I don't get paid... no other mod, S mod, CC etc. get paid. Those running the site on a technical level are paid, but you don't actually see them posting in here much... And I don't see how you think they get paid for using other people's stuff without consent, but that's another matter...

Cool, I'm sure they're great websites

Quote:

So instead of staying on those websites you prefer to UG, you're 'wanting to be here' spending your time on a website you don't like?


Anyway, I won't argue any further - keep on doing whatever it is you're doing and such.

This is more or less my opinion on the matter.

You're an idiot. I distinctly remember you (or someone like you) in site feedback ranting about this and everyone proved you wrong.

You're basically saying, "UG charges people to look at my tabs". That's false. Your tabs are there and can be accessed/viewed for free. UG charges people to use their TabPro software, which displays user submitted content in a different format.

Regardless of whether you can accept that or not, by submitting something to UG you are agreeing to UG's terms, which is that all user-submitted content becomes property of the site. If you don't like it, tough tits. Stop submitting content then.
Quote:
An equally expected response.
Tabs are often rejected for:

A - being shit. Users are involved in the tab approval process. If they vote to deny the tab, it won't be approved. If nobody votes for or against it, it's usually approved unless:

B - there's plenty of pre-existing tabs for that song and your tab isn't significantly different enough to warrant a new tab. I know how this works. There was a song on UG that had a bunch of tabs, but every single one of them had the intro wrong. So I submitted a new tab, and it was denied. I asked why, showing video proof that my tab was right and was the way the band played it, and I was told that since there were so many tabs for the song already I should just submit it as a correction on the existing tabs.

C - it's an unsigned artist/really small unknown independent artist. Unsigned artists have to have their tabs submitted under Miscellaneous Artists or something like that. Independent artists on smaller labels and whatnot have to have proof of label backing in the tab (a link to the label's site or something) in order to be approved. It especially happens when the tab is for an artist that doesn't exist on UG yet. I had a few tabs denied because the artists weren't on UG yet. I resubmitted with some evidence, and boom, they were approved.

Try to view things objectively. Instead of getting all pissy and making passive-aggressive comments that are out of place, you should spend more time in the "Where's My Tab" thread. I know you're familiar with it.

I'm willing to bet most of your tabs were denied for one or more of the reasons above.

How big of a moron does one have to be for one to voluntarily hang around places that they so actively dislike without having a real reason to be there?

Yeah, love it.

-Pretty sure that's the single most stupidest thing I've heard all day. But if you insist, I'd love to see some proof of that incredibly random assumption.

-I have no idea what tabs you're looking at, but I'm sure you aren't looking at enough. Good tabs are actually usually always accepted, while dumb tabs usually get denied because either 10 other versions are already posted, or hardly any effort was put into it. I spend more time in the Approval Queue than I should an I rarely see any good tabs get rejected.

-Sometimes. Sometimes it's just their sense of humor. But certainly not most. There are good users on here.

Edit: ^Yeah, that.
