Private Messages, and such

What's up everybody? I know I haven't been very active on the site lately, and I'm sorry for the neglect but my life has just been very hectic lately. I'm currently working my butt off at university, and having a part time job at the same time and trying to squeeze in a social life somewhere inbetween. On top of that I've been sick for the past week, and hardly have had any energy to work on anything at all. I just got done taking my final exams for the fall semester though, and now I'll have a lot of free time for the next few weeks to work on some of the long awaited issues plaguing the site. To everyone who has been helping to add tabs to the site, thank you so much. I really, really appreciate your help.

One thing you guys have been asking for since I changed the forum system is private messages. And well, they're finally here. You should notice a link under 'My Favorites' that says 'Private Messages'. From there you can view and send private messages to any registered user on the site. It's a very simple system, and I don't think there needs to be any explanation on how it works. But if you have any questions, you're welcome to ask.

One issue that has been coming up a lot since I put up the new layout is that in some screen resolutions the tabs don't fit within the content area. To resolve this I'm going to move some things around the screen a bit. I'm going to kill off the right sidebar completely and all the user navigation links (My Profile, My Favorites, etc) to the top navigation bar, and everything else over to the left sidebar. This should free up more than enough room for things to look fine in any screen resolution.

Also, a lot of you have been complaining about the forum. I know its not perfect, but I think in the long run it will be the best solution. I need you guys to tell me exactly what it is you don't like about the forum. Be specific, and I will be glad to come up with a solution. If there are any other issues for that matter, please feel free to specify what it is so I can work on it while I have the free time.

GTYNP: Final Fantasy VIII - Blue Fields

Posted in GTYNP

ffviii3.jpgJust to prove that I'm not dead, I decided to post up a long overdue Greatest Tab You've Never Played. For those of you who don't know, this is where I post up a relatively unknown tab in hopes that it will receive some recognition from those who missed it.

This time I'm posting Stamen47's arrangement of "Blue Fields" from Final Fantasy VIII. Now when I say arrangement, I really mean arrangement. Stamen takes a lot of creative liberty in this piece and really turns it into something that sounds amazing on guitar. It's a little bit difficult to play, but not too hard to get the hang of. Great job Stamen.

Take a look at the side by side comparison between the original Blue Fields midi and Stamen47's arrangement. Or just view the tab.

New Feature: Favorites Lists

I know there's been a whole bunch of little issues cropping up all over the place since I upgraded the site, which I'm working on, but I figured that while I sort everything out I might as well give you guys something which has been a long awaited feature of the site (and in fact made possible only by the recent upgrades).

So without further ado, I present Favorites Lists!!! :D :D :D =0 <3 <3 *-* o_0 <(O-O)>

You'll notice under your "My account" link is a "My favorites" link. This is where your very own, personalized, unique and special list of favorite tabs goes. To add a tab to your favorites list, all you have to do is click the "Add to favorites" link, which now appears on every tab below the five star rating (this location will most likely change in the near future). You can seemlessly add and remove tabs from your list there, as well as remove them straight from the list itself. Tabs will be sorted alphabetically by game first, then by title of the song. You can favorite as many tabs as you wish. Now have at it =D
