I got another undeserved bad rating, this time a "2" by user bobbymohs http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/bobbymohs/
GuitarPro Tab: Will It Go Round In Circles by Billy Preston: http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/billy_preston/will_it_go_round_in_circles_guitar_pro_1134891id_02032012date.htm
I did message bobbymohs for feedback already--no reply
The tab was subsequently taken down due to a request from the copyright holder, but I'm still hoping you can still review and remove the bad rating, you can get the tab from my dropbox: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/110614279/Will%20It%20Go%20Round%20In%20Circles.gpx
Thanks

Hi!

I just found this thread and have a similar problem.

A 5-star tab of mine (which I actually think is worth it) now has 3-stars after a second rating by tiodesgra95 - obviously he must have given it a very bad rating. He gave some weird comments too.
I asked him why he thought the tab was that bad and what could be done to fix the problem but alas - no answer.

Is there something that can be done about this?

Hi emad!

It happened twice: user "trollingbitch" rates down good tabs that had 5-star ratings by two users. After his vote the rating is down so obviously he must have given it a very bad - and in my opinion unjustified - rating. Sent him a message after the first rating - no answer. Wrote it off. But then it happened for the second time. I blocked him now.

trollingbitch's profile does not look as if he does anything else than voting against tabs - there are no other activities.

Both tabs are fine - elaborate, complete, correct as far as tabs go. I even recorded a demo recording of what it sounds like and included the link. It would be hard to provide more service ... (see the links below)

I'd be happy if you could help.

Thank you,

Martin

I believe that the acoustic tab for the song 'Baby' by the artist 'Justin Bieber' has been unrightfully downvoted by a huge amount of people. As can be seen in the comments, which are mostly raging at the fact that there is a tab of Justin Bieber on UG.

The votes should be reset, and those who down voted it and commented about down voting for no other reason than disliking the music produced by this young star should be banned or at least warned.

The tab is perfect, although it should be stated it refers to the album version, not the live version. The tabber of the song 'Baby' nailed the complicated chord progression, which includes many variations of regular chords, due to the diversity of Justin Bieber's voice.

Therefore, the tab deserves 5 stars after being rated by 200+ people. Not 3. Definitely not 3.

Could you please fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi emad!

User "robbietom" again rates down good tabs that had a 5-star rating by one user. After his vote the rating is down on 3, so obviously he must have given it a very bad - and in my opinion unjustified - rating. Sent him a message - no answer. Wrote it off. But then it happened for the second time. I blocked him now.

His profile does not look as if he does anything else than voting against tabs - there are no other activities.

The tab is fine - elaborate, complete, correct as far as tabs go:

Got 2-stars on this tab. I can't tell who gave the rating since it was given awhile ago. is there some way for me to see who gave the rating?

Hey emad, maybe you can help me. A few years ago I got a few spiteful (1-star) tab ratings, because someone didn't appreciate me rejecting their tab (this was back when everyone could see which user was commenting/voting in the tab submissions queue). And I know the tabs can't be that bad, as everyone else that's commented/rated has been nothing but positive.

The tabs are:
http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/bongzilla/666lb_bongsession_tab.htm
http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/bongzilla/amerijuanican_tab.htm
http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/bongzilla/kash_under_glass_tab.htm
http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/bongzilla/trinity_gigglebush_tab.htm

I could be wrong on the user, but going back over some old comments, I think it was Metalhead510 who did the 1-star ratings. If you could remove those ratings, it'd be much appreciated... I didn't know we could get spiteful ratings removed until recently.

Hey emad I got a ticket yesterday for doing 40 in a 25 zone. Any chance of getting that point removed from my driving record?

I have a couple of one star ratings from this user

on my Black Sabbath tabs
Dear Father
http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/black_sabbath/dear_father_guitar_pro_1409569id_06082013date.htm
and Methademic
http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/black_sabbath/methademic_guitar_pro_1409571id_06082013date.htm
I can see no reason for this, I think they're pretty accurate and the Methademic one was even listed as an u-g featured tab, so I know it's not that bad!

Hi emad!

User "wingman1001" rated down a good tab by giving it a 1-star rating - in my opinion unjustified. Sent him a message asking for suggestions - no answer.

His profile does not look as if he does anything else than voting against tabs - there are no other activities.

The tab is fine - elaborate, complete, correct as far as tabs go (I even uploaded a recording of it)

I was just wondering how difficult would it be to implement that ONLY people who have submitted at least 5 tabs are the ONLY ones that can rate tabs ... somewhat similar to the policy that is in place here at Ultimate-Guitar already that only people that have a minimum of 3 tabs are the only ones that can see tabs in queue and vote whether to accept or reject those tab in queue? Appears this may be one solution to the problem and one that could easily be done.

The main reason for this being that people who rate tabs 1 star are more likely to be people who have just joined and do it just for spite as they usually never come back and never leave corrections or reasons why they did it and or people that are newbies and possibly do not know how to play or have an ear and so give this rating. By only allowing tabbers that have gone through this experience the right to rate this then would allow credence to the rating and I am sure then the person rating would then give constructive criticism on what is wrong with the tab and allow the person to then make corrections and receive a better rating after make the neccessary corrections.

Also, sometimes I believe people while looking at a tab accidentally hit one of the stars inadvertently and is another reason why sometimes a tab is rated poorly as all one needs to do is touch one of the stars to rate the song and that's it...

NOTE:
Recently I had a tab that I done many many many years ago. I completely forgot about tabbing the song until I saw in an email that someone recently rated it. When I looked I noticed it received a poor rating. At first I was pissed but then when I saw that the person had numerous tabs I messaged him and asked why?...he responded and I agreed with his suggestions and made the corrections .... I must admit now that in retrospect the tab was actually bad....lol...
But the thing that made me glad and be OK with all this was the fact that the guy was a trusted tabber himself and that when asked why he did it he responded and that he gave constructive criticism which I incorporated by making the corrections into the tab... I am currently waiting for him to now go back over the tab and re-rate it. The bottom line is that now when people see that tab by me and bearing my name I will feel better knowing that now it is a lot more accurate and that people can now play the song the way it should be... This is an example of how something like this makes everyone feel good.....

Thanks for reading and sorry if it is long winded.... Just trying to help

^ I'm all for making it tougher to rate tabs low. In the tab submissions queue, we have to give a reason as to why we're voting to reject a tab, why can't we be forced to give a reason as to why we're rating a tab 1 or 2 stars?

And thanks emad.

I had a 5-star rating for this song after 5 reviews, then it dropped to 4 stars, i.e. it must have been given a 1-star rating. people are entitled to their opinion, but there's no way this tab is a 1.

there are FIVE other tabs for this song which have 4-star ratings, and all of them are mediocre at best. it's a bummer to be recognized for the contribution and then have it be dragged down by one individual.

I'm still trying to learn how to operate in the forum. I have difficulty with playing the tabs when I push play.

Well, now that ive read through 4 pages of this, I will have to start rating tabs when i use them, I always assumed it really wasnt my place, and that nobody cared about it anyway

I usually use google to search for ug tabs, so all i see is the ver# not the rating.
