gagnard.eric rated my chords tab 3 stars, saying it was incorrect and gave no reason for it. I had a lot of work making this tab, because when I make one, I make it as right as I can, and I spend hours or days doing it if it takes that much. I'm pretty sure the chords are right and I even spent quite a lot checking through all the live versions I could to check if it was correct.

I'm pretty sure it's just a troll but it ended up lowering my tab to a 4 star rating, that it does not deserve.

Thanks, I hope someone can help if you think it's worth it

Could be time to bring this topic back ...

I have three tabs that I think have been given unfair ratings recently.
The first two are Black Sabbath - Live Forever
https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/black_sabbath/live_forever_guitar_pro_1410238id_26022016date.htm
given 3 stars by gcatsoudas

and Queensryche - Arrow of Time
https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/tab/1788789
given 3 stars by rodrigokreator

I've sent messages to both of them to ask why but no reply.
I'm sure that the guitar is very accurate so the only reason I can think is because I didn't transcribe the bass or drums ... more on that later ...

The third one is Epica - The Essence of Silence
https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/e/epica/the_essence_of_silence_ver3_guitar_pro.htm
I got a comment from Livingstone on it "Really good tab. Just missing the bass."
and then he rated it 3-stars!
That's absurd! First for rating a "really good tab" only 3, and second, this tab has four guitar tracks, lead vocals, choir, all the orchestra and drums, and then you take 2 stars off for only not having the bass?!
Again, I've sent a message, no reply. (In fact none of them have read the messages, why don't people read their messages? )

So the issue here is, should you rate a guitar pro tab so low for not having the bass or drums?
I don't believe so, I think you should rate a tab for the accuracy of what has been transcribed, and not for what hasn't been.
You can check this thread for a discussion of this, see the comments by ayreon77, NeoMvsEu and me. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1697147

In closing, if you can see my point of view, I'd be grateful if you could remove those ratings from my tabs.

I wouldn't think a tab that has gone through the approval process, could justifiably be marked lower than maybe 3 stars anyway, or it shouldn't have been accepted!

Yes, you would think so, but occasionally you will come across some that are that bad.
My issue is not that however, it's that I have had tabs rated with 3 stars which I believe are in no way that 'poor'.

I used to get almost all 5 star ratings on my Guitar Pro 6 tabs. Now I get almost as many 3's and 4's on the same tabs, and I am sure these ratings are by UG users who don't own Guitar Pro, they are looking at our tabs using Tab Pro which doesn't do justice to a great GP6 tab. There must be a way to prevent or discourage Tab Pro only users from voting?? How about if you can only vote on a GP6 if you have contributed a GP6? None of the users below have any contributions to the site.

TabPro does not faithfully reproduce bends, whammy bar, volume swells, and other effects which makes the sounds distorted and inaccurate. The equalization and instrument sounds and effects are not the same, etc. I've created amazing sounding saxophone solos (see Brown Sugar below) that are converted to to inaudible clean guitar instruments. Keyboards are useless only displayed as guitar tab instead of on a staff.

Some examples: 3 star rating by Ray Lehmus on Brown Sugar https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/t/the_rolling_stones/brown_sugar_ver4_guitar_pro.htm

3 star rating by Kaji01 on Roundabout https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/y/yes/roundabout_ver2_guitar_pro.htm

3 star rating by seepel on Locomotive Breath https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/j/jethro_tull/locomotive_breath_ver3_guitar_pro.htm

3 star rating by ranch_rio1 on Brothers In Arms https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/d/dire_straits/brothers_in_arms_ver6_guitar_pro.htm

I could go on. It is frustrating. See my original forum post about this https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1688677

3 stars rating means that your tabs worth learning which is not bad.

To me, a 3 star rating = average, which means there would be quite a few inaccuracies with the tab. If you've spent the time to make the tab as close to 100% accurate as you can, you can see why it would be annoying to have it rated 3 stars - especially if that rating is as a result of it sounding crap in Tab Pro when it sounds really good in Guitar Pro.

Well, you may change the content of your tab but you can't control people's thoughts on your work.
We remove spam ratings.
