Tabs organized by album?
 
Hi all!

I want to ask you if you really need this feature. The point is that maintaining albums with their lists of tracks and covers takes about 2/3 of the time I spend on tabs archiving.

If you can live with a simple list of songs of a band sorted alphabetically, this would mean I can add tabs 3 times faster.

Just let me know what you think, I really hate the idea of loosing a very useful feature.

cheers, :beer:

It's useful, but not totally necessary. If it means tabs being added quicker, I think you should go for it.

The Doctor 2003-11-23 08:42

its indeed very usefull, but not unmissable, if it takes so much time just drop it

MetalPoldi 2003-11-23 08:46

I think it's not really necessary.
It looks nice and it's lot of fun to browse around, if you're bored to find a song to play.
But if you really search for a specific song, you don't need this album-organization. In fact it costs more time to get to the tab.
Although i never saw it at any other site and so it's something special about metaltabs.

the only bad thing about getting rid of it would be if some burned you a CD and you knew the album and the track number but not the song title, there are other ways of looking them up, but the lazt ass people will complain. but if it does make it easer and faster then sure get rid of it i guess.
if you do get rid of it will the links that say buy it now or whatever be gone too?

I think it's a good feature, and like MetalPoldi said, Metaltabs is about the only place i've seen that archives tabs this way.

But then again, it's not a necessity....i mean, we'll still be able to find all the songs we want.

Thats why I like getting tabs from metaltabs. Its well organized.

Do what you think you got time for, man. If you drop the album, atleast put them in alphabetical order.

guitar_demon 2003-11-23 17:11

nomad, you said it would take less time to do it this way but wouldnt it take a lot more time to go through all the bands and re-organize the songs alphabetically?

Nope, all pages are generated with database driven php scripts.

Would they still have the ratings and other stuff? Cause I just realized on some songs there are like 3-5 tabs. Which is the only reason I don't like other sites, because they don't have this feature, and there are so much tabs of the same songs...

This site is well organized and if you get rid of the album things then it will be harder but not by much.I think you should keep it the way it is.

i'd like to see things stay the same for the most part...metaltabs is the best looking tab site around, and very organized as well.

the album pic itself is not the most needed feature, but the tracklisting is. I have so many albums i can't remember any song titles anymore, only tracklist numbers, therefor i'd like to see that stay the same.

most tab sites just list all the songs in alphabetical order, and that makes it look dissorganized and half-heartred.


sure it takes a long time to update, but it takes more time for the tabbers themselves to tab the songs out...

Well i think both looks nice...but if you can add tabs 3x faster...then i should do it like that!!

then put a list from A till Z. And link the tabs under the letter.

That's my input!

Cheers, Darkie
