It all seems good to me, but I find that one funny :

Well, when there are 5+ versions for the same song, I guess it is...

That sounds good Nomad. And the feature where we can edit tabs in our profile instead of resubmitting it......will that be here sometime....?

This will be done around May.

i think a user comments would be useful, to us the tabbers. it could help us find what are weaknesses are and such (to confusing, jumbled), and we couldd watch for that when posting future tabs

OK, first of all, INVERTED had a beef with people deliberately voting low. And NOMAD, you could have just told him "they're just numbers" like you told me in another thread (you know, where I pointed out that people might deliberately do easy tabs to get 5/5 ratings; and I always try to tab stuff that challenges me, etc). The only other reason I could think of for that 1/5 vote, other than someone just being stupid (which was most likely), was that someone may have thought it was copied and thus gave a low rating.

Anyway, its about time the issue of tab feedback is being properly addressed. From day 1 that I came to this site, I noticed lots of bodgy-arse tabs and lots of good tabs with minor mistakes. It was usually the case that I did a tab, then as I went to post it, someone beat me to it with a version exactly the same as mine, but with afew mistakes. Then it took like 3 months for the tab to be processed, so there was no point in me posting my version, as it would be duplicating much of the other tab.

I'd like to see a system that allows comments and corrections to be made to tabs even after they are processed, but they are locked and uneditable at that stage for a good reason; you don't want to download/print off a tab and then come back the next day and its changed. However, it was still possible to update the tab, albeit much slower.

The ideas I've seen for voting and feedback are good. The only thing I can add is that you make processed tabs still editable by the owner and allow comments to be posted under the tab. Allowing members to specify (when they download a tab) that they'd like a private message or email when the tab is edited. But still, that could be alot of database overheads, so any better ideas?

I also thought of "voting on the voters", hehehe. If someone's comments for a tab (in the potential feedback system) have no truth or validity to them (bear in mind, some flexibilty must be exercised for variations in opinions), then people can vote on what they think about that voter. e.g. you could have 5 options or so: e.g. "Plays guitar sounding like they took a dump on the strings", "Couldn't Play/Rate a Tab If They Tried", "Likes to be an Average Joe", "Usually Right", "Oh Wise One". And that title appears under their avatar with all the other stuff.

Hey,

As I already said, I will implement both the edit function AND the comments.

I will think about the vote on the voters and tab subscription ideas, thanks for them!

In my opinion, the value and the main purpose of the voting system is not to show who's the coolest tab genius but to help picking among the different versions of the same song.

I will of course try to better the system so that it properly assesses the absolute tab quality as well, but IMHO the system will never be perfect.

Would it be possible to introduce half ratings into the rating system? Or to make it from 1-10? There have been a few occasions where I've seen a tab that is not quite perfect (therefore not deserving of a 5) but a rating of 4 seems a bit harsh. I think it would allow voters to be more specific and the ratings may therefore reflect the accuracy of the tab better.

You know, INVERTED has a point. I don't know if that has already been said, but I'm not going to read the entire fucking thread.

Yeah I noticed this too. Like maybe one riff is off by maybe two, three notes, and the rest is completely perfect.

How about adjusting your rating to the current one. For instance, if it's already rated at 4, you vote 5; if it's at 5, you vote 4, thus moving the overall mark to 4.5

Never thought of that!

Also, are we going to be able to make comments on tabs soon?

Hey, some faggot-arse face fuckwit went through and voted several of my tabs with a 1. The score went from 18 or something down to about 15 in no time at all.

Hurry up and bring in the feature where we can see who votes and their reason. I'd like to bust their punk-ass. Obviously someone on the forums don't like me, or perhaps someone is trying to better their own score by cutting down the tall poppies eh?

Well whoever it was either own up, or consider yourself a royal fuckwit. You're dragging down the metaltabs site.

Not that a give a flying fuck about my score, but I'll get Nomad or someone to go through the transaction logs of the database if it gets worse to find out who the people are that vote several "1s" in close proxmimity. Better yet, Nomad, secretly log votes without telling us so you can kick off trouble makers.
