UI Menus

1) Add My Sets to the MuseScore.org menu bar ... instead of 3 clicks to find it under the profile

2) Options to view 20, 40, all my scores on one page, instead of clicking through 10+ pages. I know there’s a search function but sometimes I can’t even remember what I named something :)

3) eliminate the preview score screen default when I click https://musescore.com/jeffrey/sheetmusic

Or
https://musescore.com/jeffrey/sets

it takes up the entire screen and it makes navigation very difficult. It should be the same view as

MuseScore's transition to Freemium and cross-platform access

Hello everyone,

Historically, MuseScore has had two mobile apps for Android: a paid one (Songbook) and a free one (MuseScore). There's also a desktop version of MuseScore where users can have  Pro accounts that are not linked to any of the apps which means they can't use their premium features there.
The vast majority of users use MuseScore Android to browse scores and in only a couple of years of its existence, about a million users have launched it at least once. These numbers inspire us to move forward and continue improving MuseScore products even further. 

Today, I want to announce a significant update that will be released shortly and after which MuseScore will transition to a cross-platform Freemium model.
This means that we'll unify subscriptions and accounts of the two existing apps and the desktop version of MuseScore. This way, Pro users from desktop will finally be able to use all premium features of the mobile app which will help us concentrate our efforts on improving it. 
Why are we doing this?

Our business model is 'Make products, not content' 
We put a lot of effort into improving our products. Mobile apps are a direction that we deem one of the most prospective ones and where we put the most effort into. 
While some companies make their apps free in stores but ask money for the access to scores, we negotiate with right holders of the scores in order to give our users free access to all public scores provided by our community.
We're searching for new competitive monetization models that will allow us to stay on par with market's powerhouses and we want to achieve this by continuously improving our services. 

All scores should be available to everyone
This is our core value. Any user from any device should have the most convenient way of accessing scores. The main advantage of the freemium model is that it allows all users to explore the app and upgrade their access if they like it enough. And by 'like' we firstly mean quickly and easily finding what users need or getting a lot of views on their own scores.  

Freemium works, it's how the majority of the mobile apps operate
We believe that the freemium model is the most prospective way of the mobile app development and that it'll let us accumulate more resources for turning MuseScore Android from a simple score browser to an invaluable tool for any musician.
Pro users shouldn't have any restrictions when they use our products. From the very first day of our work, we've been thinking how to give more value to pro users. Since then, we've introduced a lot of new features most important of which is being able to access all features of the mobile app. Users who previously bought MuseScore Songbook will soon get the access to the full version of the MuseScore mobile app (to get the access you’ll need to log in to your new account). 

Freemium means free
We'd like to note that these changes don't mean our apps will be hidden behind a paywall. The key functions of the app such as search and playback will remain free. However, some extra features like the offline access, opening scores from the local storage and a couple of others will be paid. 

We want more feedback and more ideas
We want to make our apps the best and the most useful for beginners and pros alike. That’s why we want to implement as many helpful instruments as we can and looking forward to receiving feedback from you. Bringing all products together will let us concentrate on developing them. If you have any questions or ideas, feel free to share them here or in the ‘Improving MuseScore’ group. Thanks for reading!

More personalized dashboard and youtube video issue (edited)

Hello Musescore Devs,
I know this has been mentionned before, but I would like to suggest a "Facebook" based'' customization algorithm for the dashboard. Instead on relying on musescore users, the new dashboard would display scores related to music preferences (by genres, instruments and so on).
There would also be a check option, where one can choose the type of music they prefer, the users they want an update from.
I'm sure lots of users would benefit from this improvement.
If you could improve the system which filter unwanted scores to be not seen, that would be great! The blocking system does not work....
Another issue that is quite frustrating is that you can no longer resize the video panel on playback, as most of my scores are video-based. Please fix.
Thank you
Sincerely,
-TheLight OI

[RESOLVED]Canceled free pro membership, still in pro group channel.

I got a free trial of Musescore Pro about a month and a half ago. I have since canceled it since I don’t want to pay for it. That being said, I still get notifications from the pro group in my dashboard (I think it’s because I never actually left that group). When I click the posts, it just says the page is unavailable (probably since I’m no longer a pro member.) I can’t seem to do anything to remove myself from the group, and these notifications are bothering me.
