Hey everyone!  We've been hard at work making changes that will continue to improve the Guitar Tricks site and make it better then ever!  Here is a list of some of the improvements and changes that we have made in the past month.  We are excited about them and know you will be too!!



* Released new feedback feature, where you can submit videos of yourself playing and get feedback from an instructor in a private video.
* Require email confirmation to post in forum to reduce spam
* Added song recommendations to Guitar Fundamentals courses
* New page to purchase a custom lesson plan for extra guided help
* Added feature that lets you save preferred video quality on the account page. If you set this, the video player will not change playback quality while playing.
* Fixed slow loading issues on tutorial list pages for users with lots of progress history
* Fixed bug when marking completed tutorials as "incomplete", reported by users
* Added two new instructors, Collin Hill and Molly Miller
* Added redirects for tutorials which were recently reshot to improve video quality


Thank you for being a part of GT and we will keep working on providing the best guitar lessons online!

Mo,


Thank you for your post exposing the depth of the problems with the growing onslaught of spam!  You made the real threat of the problem  apparent.  It isn't just an anoyance when the spam invades your computer.  It is a serious threat.  I know that post got my attention and I bet it was a big reason why they are now working to fix this problem.  I think we all owe you congradulations on getting something done!
