New tab ratings: I'm calling bullshit

I think the quick “fix” is to require all ratings to have a comment. It will probably kill the number of ratings given, but the ones that are should be more accurate.

And should be the easiest to implement, since it would just be changing the range requiring a comment.

Don't be pessimistic. Just because nothing has happened yet doesn't mean nothing ever will. We'll get this whole thing sorted one of these days.

Well I joined 2 years ago and my first tab scored 5 within minutes. I'd never tabbed before. Two years later still tabbing (getting better at it), still getting 5's, but surely 233 5 stars outta 238 tabs can't be right, surely. Some of them are proper s… . A few are pretty good. Jeez gonna have to hit the sack as the Taylors port is kicking in.
I am new here but I got the idea of the rating system from the start. I still think the people that are rating the tabs should have to give there identity and why they rated the tab the way they did. Just my thoughts…
Also I see why its frustrating. Some tabs have multiple versions and weeding thru them is a pain. I have worked on songs that have 3 stars that are better than the 5 star version. Go figure…

Yeah but by then we'll all be too busy celebrating the cure for cancer and heart disease and the end of war, famine and George Ezra. (If you havent got him over there count your lucky stars)

Did you add your rating to them?

That's the real fix - if you work through a tab enough to tell if it's good or not, give it the appropriate rating. The more genuine ratings a tab gets the less the bogus ones will matter.

Agreed. While it may result in less tabs being rated, I'd rather have no tabs rated than every tab dishonestly rated. It's obviously not the best cure for the problem, but it would stave off ratings abuse until we could come up with something better.
