User experience improvement

Hi,

your app-version of musescore is awesome. But there are two small features that are missing which would be such a huge user experience improvement:

1. Remembering the zoom level
Things like tempo and muting instruments are saved, but not the zoom level. It really sucks to zoom in a few times on every small practice session.

2. Prescrolling the notes
When all notes displayed are played, the next pages appears. But in that moment you don't know what to play, because you simply can't see it. You can't play a piece completely without interruptions. Just scroll a bit when you are half way trough the notes currently displayed or something like that.

If these two things get implemented, i'll be premium member for years... guaranteed! :)

Thanks for listening and keep up the great work.

What is the weirdest thing you have ever got in trouble for?

Mine was at  school. 
In the middle of my 3rd period (math), the boy in front of me asked the teacher if she was there yesterday (she had been gone with the flu for a few days). All I said was: "you weren't here yesterday? I didn't notice." I got a 2 day detention; my first one ever. He was also the same boy who would make fun of me about the way I look.

RSA Collaboration Variations composition

I finally have the theme for the collab, so you guys can post your variations into this discussion. I'll explain some rules:
1. Variations are ONLY for solo piano.
2. You can do whatever you want with the melody as long as it sounds at least somewhat like the original theme. You can change the key, time signature, tempo, etc. You can even change the melody a bit (like a fantasia).
3. You can make your variation any difficulty as long as it doesn't look like a black MIDI. I would prefer playable, but if your composing style isn't very playable, then it's still fine.

Can't think of any more rules at the moment. To submit your variation, just upload it onto your account and put the link to it in this discussion. I'll collect everyone's variations and arrange them in some order. You have until October 7, 2018 to put a link of your composition here.

Here's the original theme (and the simplified melody if you have trouble with finding the melody):

Offering long comments (read description)

I want to practice my writing skills and also listen to some new pieces, so I’m offering some longer “story”-like comments where I make up an interpretation of your piece.

The rules are as follows:
1. The piece must be complete. (Length doesn’t matter)
2. The piece must contain variations in texture, expression, etc. (Basically no technique exercises)
3. The piece must be original.
4. Not all posted pieces will be commented on.

I will write a little blob of text and comment on your piece. Comments are varied in length and depends how relatable I find the piece.

THE COMMENTS ARE NOT CRITIQUES!

New Piano Roll Feature on the musescore.com

Today marks the release of MuseScore Piano Roll. Piano Roll is a popular and convenient method to display piano notation in a way that not only simplifies learning a new piece for novice musicians who lack a teacher, it also beautifully visualizes each score.


(Video captured from https://musescore.com/classicman/scores/33715 )

Give it a try by simply clicking on the Piano Roll icon now available on all solo piano scores. Be sure to tell us what you think in Improving MuseScore.com!



All of these improvements are designed to not only make MuseScore.com the most valuable resource online for sharing and discovering great musical works but for learning them as well.

We hope you’ll be as excited about this new feature as we were to create it for you, and as always we look forward to your feedback.

This is just the first of an exciting series of updates and releases for MuseScore PianoRoll; we're already hard at work on improving the experience!

Ever got banned form a game for no reason?

One day I was on Roblox (yes, people STILL play it) and I was playing Phantom Forces (pretty dank game) and I was just doing it how I normally do until I start to get killed over and over again by some level 15's and 25's with BGF 50's AND Ballistics trackers! (if you don't know, on the game you don't get a BGF 50 till level 60 ish and you don't get the Ballistics tracker will 45 ish!) These boi's basicly just stole their moms credit card to buy guns on a GAME! So, I do what any normal person would do if this happened to them and I said to them,"Why the BT on a BGF 50?!" Then about 2 min. later, I see that they are trying to vote kick ME! FOR NO REASON! *REEEEE!* So what about you guys?(sorry this was so long! XD )

March Challenge: Waking Spring

Hey guys! Thanks for being patient with us posting this!
Your challenge is simple! Create a theme that represents the beginning of spring!
Not too hard right? And please make sure the duration of your song is at least a minute.

We are so excited to see what you guys create!
Remember, what’s most important, is to have fun! Now go compose some music!

Also, an FYI, we are still excepting signups through tomorrow (Feb 28th). But we are no longer accepting signups when March starts. The challenge ends in exactly a month (March 27th).

Another FYI:
We did not receive scores from everyone that signed up last month.
So this challenge, we are adding a new... feature, you could say.
Through March 3rd, you have the option of backing out of the challenge if you desire. Please don’t back out after this date, as it can be hard for me and John to contact you if you haven’t completed the score, and the challenge has ended. Thank you for your cooperation.

Now, go compose! I’m so excited to see what you guys create for this challenge.

Good luck!

-Jay

Make sure remember the deadline! If you haven't sent in a score 3 days before the deadline, me or Jay will send you a private message reminding you. Remember, what we're looking for is a happy, bright kind of a feel in your score. May the best score win, and I am so excited to hear you guys! May the challenge begin!! Best of luck!

-John
