*** Official Suggestion Box ~

Please leave a brief note of your suggestions to help improve the site, make thihngs 'work' better, etc.

This is NOT the place to lodge a complaint. It is for a good idea to make its way to a good destination, instead of the usual runaround.

Bullshit will deleted. Real suggestions, please.

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

I hope there will be a newsletter every 100 tabs or maybe every month...

I think it would be a good idea to have page for every user on which you can see all the tabs the user added.

it would also cool if we are able to see when a member was the last time online...

another good thing would be like I said in another topic to add the genre SKA to the style list,
make it possible to add bands too more than one style (many have a mixed style)
or make sub-genres

i hope that this gives you a few ideas!!

I think it's already mentioned and maybe in work but here is the right place:
the users should be able to see the validation status of their own tabs...

and please send us an email if the tab was validated successfully or not (and why!)

for artist validation :

-> there should be a field to make a discription of the artist with website and additional information. this would be make it easier to validate them...

-> one field should contain the country -> maybe duke can include a search by country

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

Ok, my first suggestion - start from scratch with the compositions. Delete the whole 'Composers of MSB' folder and start 'Composers of gprotab' or something. And organize them better. Right now compositions starting with w, x or z probably have 0 hits. It's a pain in the ass to get to the end of the list. My suggestion is to organize them by date, this has 2 benefits:
1. new tabs will not be thrown in the middle, but land on the top/bottom of the list. This way if someone wants to hear all of them, he can start with the oldest and progress without worrying that new tabs will show up in the pages he already visited.
2. people will have no reason to cheat (as in naming their songs '##aaaa My latest composition'), which is fucking annoying.
If someone is looking for a specific songs, they can just search for it, no need to browse the songs by name (althoug you could keep a parallel list sorted by name)

Second suggestion: why should we copy something that is bad and doesn't work? The music categorization on MSB is a joke (wtf is 'hard/heavy' or 'neo metal/indus'???). Why can't we use proper genres, like death metal, punk, hardcore, rock, ska, funk, jazz etc?
This site has great potential, we could make into another MSB, or... we could make it BETTER.

- agree. Make new styles list, maybe multi-leveled.

- sort Composition by styles, not by author's names.

- add e-mail notfiation for any comments or ratings on user's tabs.

- add 'Favourite artists' service: any user can add few artists in the list and get e-mail notification when someone adds a tab to any artist in that list.

- add 'Last tabs added page'. I think this one can be a good example: http://www.midi.ru/new.php. + add a style field, and show style names with different colors.

- add a 'Jam' page: it can contain a lot of jam topics. Man, who starts such topic should give primordial file, establish Jam Rules and compose one song of all uploaded parts. Other users can upload files here without validation.

- combine tab download and tab ratings and coments pages.

- interpret a ratings scale somehow, cos everyone can associate own meaning with these numbers. For example:

0.0 - moderator must be blind
0.5 - rubbish
1.0 - very bad
1.5 - bad
2.0 - weak
2.5 - so-so.
3.0 - decent.
3.5 - nice.
4.0 - good.
4.5 - very good.
5.0 - excellent.

- fix avatar uploading. max size of avatar should be 100x100. Add avatars to tabs pages.

- Smileys and BBCode is not supported in comments. why not?

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

I would like to see the rules of a compitition changed (5 non compisition songs) I can't COPY peoples music, I write my own, so could you change the rules to something like 5 tabs or open to members or anyone can submit, because I'm sure there is some people who don't copy music but want to join in a comp. the comp is compisition songs right? so why does the rule have to be 5 NON comp files (If that is the rule) so plz change the rule if thats it like in MSB smiley-smile

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

Hello, all the suggestions I've seen are goods, here are mines :

1) Put the ' submit a correction of this tab ' button, I submited a correction tab but it has been taken as a new tab, it makes useless files.

2) Please put the ' Go to page 1-2-3 ... '  in the top AND the bottom of the tab search page (search will be faster ^^ )

3) It would be nice to classify tabs by date/tabber/note and add a *new* stick for new tabs.

4) please add the ' inform the validator of an important thing ' box when submitting a tab.

5) I've noticed that almost all the bands taken from MSB are in N/A style, how to get them in their original style ? Maybe each time tabbers submit a tab they can inform the admin of the true style of the artist in the box dialog of 4)... Can some of you think about it ? : )

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

Since there are many members (at least on MSB) from Quebec, most of which are, like me, separatists, can we have Quebec as a country in the profile and have our flag instead of the disgracing canadian flag ? I realize it's not that important, but I really hate seeing that flag next to my name. Vive le Québec libre !

For now, you don't have to list a country, and you will see no flag. I'll ask Duke about it.

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

I beleive I asked Duke for just that, and I hope the guys can write the code for that soon.

For now, you can submit a tab, and in the note field, you can let us know it is a correction. I also asked for that info box to support more characters so you can write a little longer note there for the validator. If I get a correction before that code is written,
I will make a note in the F5 box implicating the original tabber, and the tabber who corrected it, and what that was.

Please remember for us to accept a correction, it must be a pretty major one, meaning changes like a one-note correction or other simple change won't be accepted as a correction.

Thanks

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

Sometimes when I find a good tab that was submitted, I like to go see what else that tabber has done. Is there a way to see all of an individuals work on this site? Maybe a list of ther work in their profile or something would be great.

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

I asked for a simpler way to do this, but for now, go to the home page, hit user stats, and go alphabetically to the user you want, (page by page) then when you find that person, look on the right of the page, and you can see  'submitted tabs' and a 'show'.
click on show, and a list will finally come up. I know it's awful, but that's all there is for now.

Beba -

There IS one.

Go to the home page, look for the WIP folder (work in progress). Click on that. You can submit a tab for a jam, or work in progress. NO validation in that folder.


Also, just like MSB, try reading / searching before making a post - it may have already been asked.

Re: *** Official Suggestion Box ~

I have not yet read this topic but I suggest a new look for the forum. Something like PHPB (I think that's what it's called) is very easy to navigate in and you can personalize it as you wish.
