i forgot about tabs cause i never use them. it's not that the quality of the average tab is superb, but this place has the most which counts for a lot when you listen to shit besides led zeppelin and the white stripes.

What's wrong with the mods?
Or Carmel?

Seriously? Where are all these negative opinions about the UG community coming from? Our mods have a sense of humor, which is freaking awesome. And they usually do a pretty good job at what they do.

And most of the users aren't bad or anything. You just let their opinions get to you, which is a pretty bad thing to do. The only thing one can argue about would be about the joking, non-seriousness people post in the pit. And even then, there's more serious places all over the internet to go to should you not like that.

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.


I would like to add that almost all the terrible tabs I have come across were uploaded to the site before the user approval system was integrated. The user approval system weeds out a lot of the bad tabs but not all of them.

I don't like the news articles with misleading titles, or the ones that blow trivial things out of proportion. Also, I don't like how you have to log in to download Guitar Pro tabs and Powertabs.

Apart from that it's all good. I only use it for The Pit. Can't complain about the people here as that is not something inherent to the design of the website.

I like how contributors get no ads.

I've saved thousands of dollars on guitar lessons and learned countless songs over the years, here.

I owe most of what I know about guitar to UG and its contributors. Nothing is perfect, sometimes you have to wean out the crap, but that's to be expected, and it actually helps in the learning process being able to discern the good from the bad.

There are a lot of good dudes in here. They know who they are. I for one, appreciate them and love UG.

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.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?


Not actually the same guy as far as I recall, but yes, the money making reference isn't concerning the mod community at all. It's about the office, the Russians and zappp. The site is funded by user generated content, but the idea about not giving notice or permission is ludicrous. UG don't go into your computer and steal your tabs; you submit them, and agree to having them used however UG wishes within the confines of a limited licence.

I'm still here for certain people. I also find certain people horrendously offensive, but it's good for work reasons for me to stick about a bit longer.

The Pit is like my extended family. Sure, I hate some of you, and am indifferent to most (like my real family) but the ones I love are awesome.

I just wish the Pit didn't have a million "Only" threads. The pit was much more spontaneous before they started showing up, and now some threads (Like the gaming and chat threads) seem like cliquey circle jerks that are hard to become a part of.

Other than that, Never change Pit.

It's good, that's why I use it. Frequently use the tabs and a few of the forums, as well as the news stories. Very rarely use the profiles or lessons or anything.

There are a few cool people on the forums. But most of you guys are dicks.

That. Depending on the thread, you've gotta post a whole lot before anyone actually gives a shit about you.

And yes, I'm including the Anime Thread in this. We probably have one of the highest barriers to entry, actually.

I can't even remember how I got onto the forums. I like it though, I think the mods in particular are pretty good compared to other forums which are quite serious.
