I have discovered many news bands and songs from here. I play bass, and JamesPrestonUK makes excellent CDLC's. He comes up with some great choices to chart and has introduced me to a lot of bands and songs I've never heard of. I do like to search for genres, so having tags will be great. However, they will only be as good as the charters choosing the tags, if they choose them at all.

CDLC Search hasn't worked for a month+. Is that not coming back?

Any news on the updates about forum and ignition?

They are still awful slow, most of the time I start browsing my other things that I want to check, meanwhile hoping the forum or ignition will finally have loaded.

Also posting a comment or so, sometimes does not work first time, and needs to be redone, hence why I copy my typed messages before trying to post them, else I have to rewrite them.
This ofc also causes why some comments or submitted CDLC are double.

I think they are working on fixing all the problems since that day, and you are right, this site it's a little slow but for me it's fine for what I do. And I do the same as you; copying my typing before post it in case that some error happen.

 

And I am a CDLC charter and sometimes I had the 502 error (I think that's the number) and if I refresh the page it happened that I upladed the same song twice, and I can't find the option to erase one of those :( so the solution was that I had to make another Custom fast to edit one of the repeated songs and change it for the new one, it's annoying but what can I do. Now that I had that experience, when I upload a CDLC (since november xd) and I get that error I just close the tab and open a new one and search for the song and that's the solution for me.

 

I hope that in the new ignition 4 we don't have those problems but we have to wait for that.

 

And I don't know if this is the place to say my complaints but you know them already, most of the people don't leave likes or don't comment about the song, just "add bass", "could you do this one", "this is thing is bad, and this too", but the comments saying "thanks" are so rarely to happen, the charters as me we don't get the appreciation that we deserve just if the song it's too famous even if it's super bad tabbed they get the best compliments.

 

So the new problem that I had is that I get some old comments in my Customs but I don't read them because I don't get any notification (just the replying ones), but may be there is an option that I don't check and that's the problem, but if not they have to leave a like on the custom post so I get the like notification then I can check the comments and I could see them, but if not there is a problem. It's a lost of time looking on each CDLC if there is an old comment to respond. So if I am wrong and there's a solution like a check mark please tell me, if not they should solve it in the future.

 

And I don't know If there are new comments while I am writting this because I heard like two times a message tone in my computer but I don't see nothing. And because I can see there is 3 guys and me reading this... Good Morning!!!

 

Saludos.

We are already working on solutions to all your complaints with Ignition4. I hope to wrap up the release and update of this soon. Once we upgrade the forums the "post" deleting issue should go away as well. I know it's frustrating and I wish I could just release ignition4 but we want it done right.

As a user I am extremely grateful for this site. If it didn't exist, I probably wouldn't have gotten so far playing guitar, since I spent my first 3 years just playing CDLCs, which surprisingly tuned up my skills quite quickly while keeping it fun.

 

As its newsletter writer I am grateful that it allowed me to create a magazine in which I have total creative freedom, the dream of any journalist.

 

Thank you Unleashed2k and the rest of CF's staff.

Sorry man but thats the truth this site is just a forum with a big database and everything like you said i really dont want to get into your shoes i know that running this website is a big responsibility ;but there must have been a hugh mistakes made in the past 2 years
Because noting has changed ; there is still not a proper search engine for people to search and find out new songs
When you post a cdlc its got buried upon others cdlcs and you will never know what you missed because the system of this forum is super old and not changed for the past 2 years ; Theres got to be a rating system for people to know the good charts (and ive said it like 2 years ago)
Theres got to be a suggestion system for people to get suggestions for good new charts they might like
And get people encouragement to download the good cdlcs of this site
and last one theres got to be encouragement system for charters ; because no one ever saying "Thank you" or good words and thats not all youre fault because people(me included) dont like to say thank you for things but thats the way it works If you dont people will get much less quailty
charts and less rare charts that got no tabs online

A rating system will never happen and it was the downfall of the previous site before CF. A user can rate a custom bad just for not liking the artist. I was there around the end of SA and the rating system hurt a lot of charters. Rated songs 0 even if the CDLC was good. What we will introduce is a new like or report system. You can like it if you enjoy it, and add it to your collection. Or you can report the cdlc and give reasons why. But we will NEVER introduce a star rating system.

No proper search engine? Ignition is our search engine and does its job I have no clue what you are on about.

I agree there has been problems within the last 2 years we were near deep with an ignition prototype and our developer disappeared. We had to start over and that screwed us pretty hard. That's why this time I was involved so I could help document and learn the code.

But I still don't understand how you don't use Ignition properly. I have thousands of CDLC even after my hard drive crashed its not hard to discover CDLC if you go through artist view and download songs. I'm going to have to majorly disagree with you there.

 

 

I found out that the Ulitimate-guitar rating system is pretty good ; It needs 3 votes to show the rating and if the user update his tab the rating is starting all over again ; you can also make it that only users with 50+ messages can rate a cdlc ; but still i can understand how trolls can ruin the charts i just trying to find away that people will find out the good cdlcs over the bad ones

 

My problem about the search engine is that i cant found out what im looking for

For example i want: 2000s music ; female fronted ; pop ; youre search system doesnt allow me to make it and thats what need to be fix

Because when i want to put up some rare charts in this website they are just got buried upon others cdlcs and getting really low downloads

and thats because people dont know what it is ; and people wont click on them (even to show up the video)  because there are too many cdlcs

Maybe my solution is to force charters to do at least 3 Tags to explain what the songs are ; and that will show up next to the cdlc

Another solution is to give a medal(that people will think its like offical chart) next to trusted users who are known as making great cdlcs ; that way it will help people choose the good cdlcs

 

I appreciate youre work around this website and i understand you are working around to get a new version and its not all youre fault

Im as a charter i  dont really having fun when my cdlcs turn into a block of texts and people cannot discover them unless they know the bands name

And recently when putting up some rare cdlcs that got no tabs and getting 20 downloads+10 more after a week (on my new user)

 

Sometimes i request my cdlcs on twitch to get people to know the songs more but most of the streamers dont know those songs and already playing plenty more charts so people cant really get there what the songs about too

Thats why i prefer that people will know them here with a system that explain the cdlc rather then twitch where people just get to hear it played alongside many others and get confused

 

There's a thank you button on the bottom of the record page

 

And people dont click on it ;trust me i got too many cdlcs and its super rare to see some giving you a thank you

 

The new ignition will have tags, so that's a plus. 

 

Thats solve some problem and thats a good start ;

And my other suggestion are also good hope that there will be a full solution

 

lol.  Force charters to tag so that you can find songs based on the sex of the musician? Sounds like you don't know what you are looking for.

Not only but i want to find specific genres ; which i still cant in this website

Can you find anything in all the pile of cdlcs in the website without looking into each one?

I guess you dont care about finding music through rocksmith but you cant make laugh of me for wanting that and this site still not lets me

We have some new tools in development that will help you find and discover artists. The main problem was the time it took to rewrite the current ignition. It's almost done and even if we do not see some of the features requested here upon release, it will take a couple months instead of years to release any additional features. We already have genre tags (generated by a 3rd party api and not the user), a love system if you like a CDLC, and a report button. It's all looking good and I hope we can release this soon for everyone.

@yaniv800 why is this important? I only used the laughing word (lol) because this request is really stupid and you and your entitled attitude bugs me. It is more of a cringe. You didn't make me laugh.

 

This tool lets you play a ton of songs on top of rocksmith's huge list. Discover what you like anywhere else... like a music player (spotify, itunes, youtube, the internet... search for whatever you are looking for...  Then see if it is in rocksmith. You want them to waste their time coding something when there are apps dedicated to do it?   :baby_symbol: This is nuts. You sound uninspired, lazy, and needy. Excuses, excuses. There are plenty of tools that let you listen to curated playlists geared for people trying to discover music but not look. Use one of them.  Then come here and play it on guitar.  Mods should not have to answer this.  Its just giving more attention to a ridiculous request.
