this was the format, but I see no examples,
and no descriptions so can someone possibly
indicate how thing must look to satisfy the critics.

thanks I will try using the format for chords, and see if it is accepted, I thought the chords had to be within ( ) but I see they do not have to be and to use the preview thanks again hope it works,

it is quite obvious without a basic example and exhibition to visualize this is entirely arbitary and quite frustrating to meet the unspoke expectation of the community and hit the discription correct, so the group that is doing the scoring seem quite content with their normal, routine of rejecting without full expanations or examples, it appears a select group want the exclusive right and reject and deny new post, not very professional or good,

I have corrected the song about 4 times and it has been rejected for reasons still abscor to me, yet I continue to believe at the end of this journey it will be nice to see a contribution, why does it take so long, to get approved,
#8
I don't know anything about chords, but it might be because of the band name. Have you tried submitting it under The Allman Brothers Band? I've looked into it and it appears there are more contributions under that title than there are under 'Allman Brothers Band'.

But remember, you can always visit the WTF? thread to be certain.

Be patient with approvals though. They can take up to more than a month to get accepted. Any longer and you should have a look into that thread.
#10
another great example of ignorance:

in regards to rejecting tabs this seems to be very arbitrary

I find tabs you have accepted that do not show any pattern at all,

or the pieces are incomplete yet you seem to approve these

due to your favorite composers list, or paid pro tab membership

yet your instructions of why things are rejected are incomplete, and

or vague you seem to neglect any duty of giving examples, or explanations

I have listed the causes and the accurate request for examples,

yet none are given only rejections, and hypocrisy
#11
Make sure the song title is "Melissa" instead of "Sweet Melissa"

Also make sure you submit the chords as "F#m7" and not "F#M7" because there is a difference. The same goes for the C#m7, Bm7 and G#m7.

I would also try and get the chords to be positioned over top of the words that happen at the same time that the chords happen.

Try to fix these and re-submit!


Also, there is a version of the chords for this song that were posted almost 10 years ago, and they are very similar to the ones you posted except for the m7 added to some of the chords.

That version can be found here
