no no quick updating is the best way to go...now there is no more people complaining about thier tabs taking to long to get uploaded.

as for mods rating every tab...i don't know half the songs being tabbed, and don't really wanna download a song just to make sure the tab is complete...sure between the 3 of us (or all the mods if that is what it will come down to) at least someone will know the song, but what if no one knows the song? WHAT THEN!?!?!?!?! WHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT??!?!?!

I know if I was a mod and none of the other mods knew the song, I wouldn't be too impressed about having to download a song just to give a tab a rating. That's the downfall of the idea, I suppose, and would probably be a stumbling block. Oh well, back to the drawing board!

This will be done around May.


I think you should have to be registered to vote on this shit. At least that way we keep asshole kids who have absolutly no knowledge of guitar playing, from fucking with other people. I dont know, maybe that is too complicated. I like the idea of showing who voted that way, too.

how about this idea

the registered users rate the pending tab, and comments are necessary

Then mods, using the Vb engine, upload the tab themself.

they will upload the tab after seeing a fixed number of good votes
So if a tab got 4 good votes, then the mod would upload the tab

If we did that:

1. Nomad wouldn't have to do much, except supervise
2. We only get good tabs uploaded to the site, which is voted by the users themselves
3. If someone rates the tab a 1 and says "this sucks" for no reason, they'll just be ignored (those would be the non-good votes)
4. The tab wouldn't be dependent on the 3 mods to download and listen to it. The users would know the song

So my idea is, the tabs get rated BEFORE they get uploaded to the archive, which means that the archive only has good tabs


If you didn't notice, this is very similar to the Powertab archive interface
except
you don't have to become a "public voter" to vote, anybody registered can
the rules won't be Super-anal

I like your idea Atif, it seems eminantly workable. It would encourage people in the forum to vote and make comments on tabs. This would give tabbers either positive or negative feedback and will help them to make improvements in the future.

U_H: I don't think a minimum membership period is necessary as stupid tab ratings from one-post-wonders can be omitted by the mods in Atif's proposal.

I don't like the idea. There is too much bias out the to make it work. I posted like 50 Obituary tabs and got like 3 comments...

I agree with James. On average, there is only 1 vote for 400 tab visits. Now find a tab in the Pending Tabs forum that got 400 visits. There are none!

Please keep posting your ideas. There are already heaps of great ones, but... quaere verum

I like Atifs idea but it has flaws, Some bands maybe noone has heard of except the person who tabbed it, and also it would take a while to search through all the tabs

i don't think its neccessary to half to vote on tabs before them being uploaded into the site...everything seems to be going relatively smoothly thus far, and this is a new submission procedure and all, so lets just keep it as is for a while and see what it turns into.

i only post tabs i'm sure are near perfect, as well as most the regular tabbers in here...we only really have to worry about the random tab people...so maybe a bad tab or two slips through the cracks, every tab page has shitty tabs, metaltabs is definately no where near as bad as alot of pages out there.

I think someone should have to play through the tab to see if its right, first. If it isnt, it doesnt get posted.

Only problem is that it gets kind of complicated.

Im sure people do that but regardless it will get posted and even if it is right, queers post bad ratings. And if we were to get rid of the ratings then it would take too much time.

I have a shitload of tabs that i haven't gotten around to posting mainly for those reasons. And others because they are pretty lenghty and I think I read somewhere they can't be that long. But anyways, I like the idea of having registered voters only because for the most parts the people in this forum are most likely to help you out rather than bust your balls if you post a shitty tab...for the most part, heheh.

haha I never noticed your sig before, hahahahahha.

this is what I think:

1. only registered users vote
2. REQUIRES a vote BEFORE you leave the tab, that way you WILL get a sufficient amount of votes.....sorta like paying for a porn site, but getting the free trial...
...but after that first vote, you can't vote again, so it's final. And if the vote comes with a dumb comment, the tab mods can delete the vote altogether.
3. Along with the vote, must have a comment, not "sucks balls", etc., but this note here is wrong, yadda yadda yadda..
4. the second the tab is posted into the "Pending Tabs" forum, the tab gets locked, cause there's no need for it to get a comment there, just look it up in the home page to comment and vote.
5. If the solo can't be done, then the rest of the song must be tabbed.
