go to My Account (located at the top of all pages) > My Profile Click on File Browse a page will come up with a box that simulates your uploads click Upload and there you go. Once you upload it you can Highlight the file in that box and a green txt with the title of the file will appear in the lower right hand corner of the screen, click that and get that link and post it in the submission forum or where you desire.

I am new to this site, and I noticed that there aren't many bass tabs from super mario 3... So I am starting to figure them out, and I just now submitted the bass tab of the world 3 theme from Smb3, and it said it will be on the front page or something when a moderator approves it. I am just wondering how long this will take, or if I did something wrong and it didn't work. Please let me know, I would like to submit a whole bunch of mario related tabs in the future...

Then i looked at this thing and says something bout making the tab somewhere else, then save it and then upload it to the site, but idk where i can go to make the tablature. was I doing okay or was I doing something wrong? i'll try to write the first part of it here and exactly how i wrote it.

To make the lines even you need to put the tab in between these tags: <pre></pre> You only need to do that when posting a tab in a comment. Save the tab as a text file (in notepad) and submit it through a new forum topic on the submissions forum. A mod will upload the tab for you.

Do you mean submitting your tab as a non-.txt file? We (I don't know, maybe it's just me) would prefer to have your tab in a plain text file. When you make tabs in a word processor, sometimes issues such as spacing appear due to formatting.

Are you asking when your tab will uploaded by mods? It looks like you haven't submitted your tab yet. But tabs typically are posted within a day or two.

The PDF you posted will not open. Can you upload a text file like Kiku said. Just make the tab in notepad and save it as a .txt file.

Yes, but it might screw up the formatting and paste it all in one long line. If that happens you have to just hit enter at the end of each line to organize it.

Hello there, I'm new around

Hello there, I'm new around here so I have trouble sending a tab.
It is a GP5 tab. I saw that when you submit a tab, the simple fact of uploading a file wasn't necessary ; do you have to write the tab even if you already sent a GP5 file ?
Anyway, I tried to upload it as the link said, but it seems like my code doesn't work. I didn't understand how it works.
But I also read that you have to post it on the submission part ; I actually used the "Submit" beceause I just fulfilled a request (I couldn't have done it otherwise, coud I have ?)
Anyway, my main problem is in the uploading part, because I didn't manage to have it appearing properly.

I do not speak English as my first language, so I apologize for my mistakes.

hey tamae, along with the gp5 you also have to export an ASCII (text) file. In the tab file please upload a zip containg the text,gp5, and midi if you have one. Then post the text file into the tab field. Do not paste the file link in the tab field. So try resubmitting it and wait for a moderator to publish the tab.

And your english is fine. I never would have guessed it was a secondary language

I'll give it another try later then. Thanks for explaining. And thanks for my English, too !

By the way, do IOSYS's Touhou musics (And Touhou musics remixes over all) enter on the site ? They are not video game musics but remixes of video game musics ; and they're obviously not anime music too. But does it match with the site however ?

If no one's responded yet, it DOESN'T mean your tab is bad. Don't worry! It's just that the people who volunteer to help out and check over tabs are, well, volunteering! So they don't always check each tab at the moment it's posted.

That also means the time varies. Could be a couple minutes, or several days. Don't sweat it too much :-)
