Squeaky G and G#

Heya, I'm bringing this problem to the saxes of Musescore because I'm too lazy to make an account for another website and I have a marching band performance on Memorial Day coming up fast. (Just to clarify, this issue is on my tenor.)

So, I've had this problem for my entire time playing saxophone and I've mostly gotten around it with my embouchure, but it's gotten worse. If I try to play G or G#, it squeaks. Quite badly. Just today I noticed that if I kind of focus that squeak, it's actually a really bad palm key Eb, so I was wondering if it was a palm key leak or something else. I did also notice that several of the pads on the palm keys of my (I believe it's a YTS-26? I'll edit the post if it isn't) tenor saxophone were quite a bit out of alignment, especially the high F key, which was several millimeters off center. So, I was wondering if it is a key alignment issue or something else. Any suggestions?

Edit: The palm keys are also really loose on the tone holes, so that won't help. I was thinking of messing with the leaf springs, but I'm no professional. (Finally, that 4th grade science project on levers will help me)

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.

Airy/thin bari tone on a new bari sax

So today, I just got my brand new bari :,). It was totally amazing but I found that the tone quality on the upper octave G to B sounded like they totally had an air leak. The sound just dipped in sound, and an audible leaky sound was coming though. I know there isn't really an issue with the rest of the bari but the notes sound so weak and undesirable. Any ways to fix this?
P.S: The octave mechanics seems to be fine, since the first octave closes shut when the other is activated and vice versa.

May 24 update of the Android app

I have two problems with today's update:
1) The very useful option of changing the relative volumes of the various voices has been removed and replaced by an option to view just one voice. That option effectively existed already in the now removed option. 
Please restore the old option, even if you retain the new one. It is very useful in bringing one part to the foreground, while not entirely muting the other parts.

2) On at least one score the entire score (all voices) is displayed an octave too high. Could the be related to the fact that part of the piano part has '8-------' above it, indicating that that part should be played an octave higher. The display is initially correct and is changed to the incorrect display in about one second.

I sure hope these modifications will be undone.
Cheers,
Dick

Users should not be able to put song titles in descriptions/add a report button on viewable scores.

The amount of times I have seen the "Crab Rave" score is not even a funny at this point. Just because you put song titles in your description doesn't mean that I want to see your score. And the only reason people do that is to only get views. And I feel there should be a limited amount of characters you could put in your descriptions. Also I feel as though Musescore should implement the feature of a report button. It could do some things like report something like putting song titles in descriptions, and after that I will not be able to view for a certain amount of time.

Guys, we got this.

So I just ranted about this in a comment, then figured it deserved its own discussion... Jay and John's Challenges LIVES! Yes, @Legendian is leaving, and @Jaybird1 probably can't run a group this involved on his own... but look at the title! Jay and John's Challenges! This is a challenge! If a few other people are willing to help out, this competition group will see its best days yet! Obligatory sniff for Legendian's departure, of course, but after that, let's get straight back into it! I, for one, can't wait for the June challenge! Who's with me?
