The ultimate musescore songbook

I have just created a group to compile a songbook of songs from Musescore (See group description for more detail, here's the link: http://musescore.com/groups/ultimate_songbook_of_musescore. We need all the people we can get to join, as it 30+ people to really kick start the path to publishing the song book, so it would be great for everybody to join!

Thanks in advance!

My friend is locked out, so can't write here.

My friend Gertim (@SDG) seems to be locked out of the site, so much so that he can't access other people's scores let alone log in for his own or use forums or contact forms (and email here is routinely unresponsive).  He recently un-followed a very large number of people (nothing wrong with that) and fears he triggered a spam filter. He is at his wit's end. please contact him and or me, thanks.

Composing a String Quartet, want some feedback

So I only have a few measures of a first movement but I hope to expand   this into a full 4 movement string quartet. Thing is, I find it hard to   get the combination of being in sonata form and still being  interesting  when it gets past duets into trios and quartets. I know it  should be  easier because I have more freedom with a string quartet than  with a  piano sonata but no, I have always found piano sonatas easier  to  compose.

Here is my first draft. You can see that I go from a   Tutti to the cello playing solo which really brings out the warm sound   of the cello. I plan on having the other instruments come back one by   one until I reach Tutti again. So here is the link:
