Future plans
 
Hi all,

I hope most of you noticed that last quarter or so there were more changes in this place than, well, there are normally.

I'm going to continue bettering metaltabs, and I thought you might be interested to know what to expect in the near future.

Some features I'm working on are (in no particular order):
  1. Official MetalTabs.com t-shirts.
  2. Member page at metaltabs.com/member/your_login/ with list of the tabs you submitted, both pending and archived.
  3. Possibility to edit tabs from your member page.
  4. Deep integration between the forum and the main site. I will probably use vBadvanced for this.
  5. Metal news on the homepage.
  6. Album reviews from The Metal Observer magazine integrated into the band pages.
  7. Slight update to the website design.
  8. Extensive FAQ pages.
  9. Several Top lists on the index page, including Top Tabbers, Top Bands, and Top Tabs.
  10. Tab comments + only members can vote for tabs.

cheers,
nomad :beer:

sounds cool, we've had more changes here in the last months then we had in years.

suggestion:

you could make a forum like the pending tabs forum, but for news and album reviews and stuff, letting the members submit stuff

Sodomaniac 2004-04-15 07:46

great ! I love this page! :love:

Transient 2004-04-15 08:07

Yeah, cool. The Metal Observer is a great site, Gabe is definately my favorite reviewer.


Thanks for letting us know

I think not. There are dozens (really!) of websites full of reviews and news, but I want to concentrate on tabs. It's metalTABS in the end. ;)

that and it's probably less work ;)

you guys come down hard on nomad

if you want to submit reviews (i love to) go to www.metal-archives.com or www.amazon.com

they all have a point system, and its easier to write a review than tab a song IMO

You should have guidlines before you join like no im new threads and shit like that and if they do they automatically get banned.

G_urr_A 2004-06-05 15:04

Yeah, I've thought about all these changes lately, what's up Nomad? Have you lost your job? ;)

Great to see some progress on the site and it's content. It was great as it was, and now it's being improved upon. Yay!

MetalPoldi 2004-06-05 18:14

I've got some ideas.
I have PMed them nomad lately, but i want to know what you think of them:

1. Keylaces in the shop.
Many of us pla yin a band and often they need something to carry their backstage-passes. I'd really buy one of those "metaltabs.com-keylaces".


2. A list of our bands.
I hate this thread "metaltabbers, that have bands". It gets so often off-topic.
I'd prefer a list with band's name, genre, location, contact.
On the one hand it shows the "profssoinalty" of this site on the other hand you could contact bands near by you for gigs.

BeastOfCarrion 2004-06-06 03:12

people could just have rampant self promotion in their signatures/profiles

BLS 2004-06-06 04:08

I like the keylaces idea. I used to use one all the time.. then i lost it
