Co-authors
 
Hello all,

I've added support for co-authors, as discussed in this thread.

A tab can have up to three co-authors who are assigned by the original tabber. Fields to enter co-authors will be shown on the last step of the submission form.

I didn't do "up to two authors per tab" feature because it complicates everything and also it's quite long to implement. If you tabbed a song with someone else you will have to decide who is the author and who is the co-author. If the contribution was equal, well just flip a coin and next time do the opposite ;)

Happy New Year! :beer:

Nomad, I had a suggestion but I didn't want to make another thread......... so hear it is, only very little.

When someone goes to get a Power Tab, the page shows this:

Learn guitar in 30 days! Click here... bla bla bla

Download the Tab!

You will need Power Tab for this to work. Get that here...

So I was just wondering if you could mover the 'You will need PT" to the position of 'Download the tab'? I'm just worried that people would think 'Oh man this tab dosnt work/the page didn't load the tab etc...' and rate it low because of that because they don't have PT... Probably dumb, and the work wouldnt be worth it but, heh, I thought it was a bit of a problem...

Sure I will do that.

Awesome, thanks alot Nomad.

Cloaca 2005-01-01 12:52

Hehe, Hot Spicy and I are the first to take advantage of this new feature.

Cloaca 2005-01-01 13:21

Awesome.

Do the rating points get shared equally between the author and co-author?

Cloaca 2005-01-01 13:50

Unfortuneatly, I think it will only be 50% of the rating for Spicy. But if the two of us tab something again, I will definately be the co-author.

nomad 2005-01-01 17:50

The author gets 100% of the points, each of the co-authors receives 50% of the points.

johnmansley 2005-01-01 18:17

That's probably about right. Another nice feature :beer:

hot spicy 2005-01-02 17:25

Yep that's right John hip hip hurray to you NOMAD :D

I think there should be some sort of consent system 'Do you accept Co-Partnership for this tab"

Cloaca 2005-01-09 07:57

Why do you have a problem with andrewc giving you credit for basically nothing? I know I wouldn't have a problem.

Infinity 2005-01-09 08:22

Actually I do.

This would make things overcomplicated. PM him and ask to remove your credit if it's so important.

Infinity 2005-01-09 08:47

Agh, it's cool.

Cloaca 2005-01-09 22:08

Why? it seems so trivial. Are you worried he'll bring you rating down or something? :p

Infinity 2005-01-09 23:48

Hahah, I wouldn't be worried about that, his is higher than mine :p
