Improving transcriptions from IMSLP- Proofread me Group

Lots of people are copying scores from IMSLP to Musescore but it is not always easy to keep these transciptions mistake free.
Sometimes is easy to spot mistakes for people who know the pieces just by listening them, so I created the group  Proofread Me.
This group is aimed to two kind of people: copysts that want their work proofread and people who want to spare a couple of minutes to spot any mistake on those transciptions.
Just upload here the scores you want to get checked (or send a link to them), or join this group if you want to help proofreading the submited scores.

I've been copyright striked

I received an email sent at 8:15am about one of my scores "When You Wish Upon A Star" being taken down for copyright infringement.

To be specific, it is my arrangement of the song for piano from the Disney movie Pinocchio. The licensing under this score is "Attribution" due to the fact that it's my arrangement of the song and I do not want anyone to claim the specific arrangement as their own, not the original song itself. The reason I am bringing up the licensing is because I'm not clear on whether the copyright strike is because of
1) my score is based off a popular song
2) the incorrect licensing
3) or a software glitch (as mentioned by Mike in another discussion post on this forum)
If it's possible, I can always change it to public domain. This is my first time receiving this notice, so I am unaware of what exactly happened. I'm hoping this can be settled and one of the staff members can take away this strike and make my score public again.

Also if anyone can educate me about whether I did the right thing about licensing my score as "Attribution" I'd greatly appreciate it.

Feature to play individual notes and full chords across all instruments

I am new to this discussion process so please be patient with me. I don't know if I am entering my question correctly, but here goes. After I have added notes to the staff in my composition, I can play each note individually by pressing the right arrow and moving to each note on the right. When there is a chord to the right then the entire chord is played, but only on that staff. Is there currently, or my suggestion is to add, some key combination, such as pressing the ALT or CTRL key along with the right arrow, that will play all the notes in the treble and bass clefs of that instrument where I have selected the note to play, or another key combination, again the ALT or CTRL key that will play all the corresponding notes in all the instruments I have included in my composition. That way I can hear if all the notes fit together.   

Favorite Pokemon?

I've noticed there haven't been many discussions, so to get the chatting going, I making this discussion about favorite Pokemon, so what ever it is, put it out there! It's pretty obvious what mine is but I'll restate it. My favorite is Spoink. I also like, Crustle, Shuckle, and Magikarp (no joke!)

Rubato in separate voices

I'm writing a piano concerto, and I would like for the arpeggio in the right hand to be independent rhythmically to the eighth notes in the left hand. Currently, the arpeggio is written as a 9-tuplet with fermatas over each note. The result is a swung bass which really does not fit the style of the piece.

Image: https://www.dropbox.com/s/tldi2jic2bi6feg/Piano_Concerto_in_G_minor_-_Movement_1_Andante_-_Moderato__WIP.png?dl=0

As a matter of notation, I made the arpeggio note heads small to indicate a lack of rhythm, but the note heads in the left hand standard to indicate that they are to be played at tempo. Is there any way currently, or could there possibly be any way in the future, that this effect could be achieved in playback? The fermata trick is already a huge step forward from when one would have to change the tempo for each note; I think there could even be a better way to implement rubato. 

CCC#2 - "The Wanderer"

 CCC#2 is here!

Based on the results of the survey I sent out on Friday 7th June, it occurred to me that several of the themes which I suggested, and asked you to vote on, would in fact fit quite nicely together. Therefore, for this second competition, I have found another painting by Caspar David Friedrich, since the response for “The Watzmann” was very good. I am also going to give a genre of music (as wide as possible, but still something to go on) and a short story available in the file below.

If you would like to help judge the competition, or have any other queries, please message on Musescore, or via discord @jte#9811


Details of the competition:

- The deadline will be in 4 weeks time (Saturday 29th June)

- The genre, as chosen by the survey will be “Film Music”. This is deliberately a very wide genre in order to give the contestants freedom of creativity. There will be an award for the most original take on the task, as with the first competition. 
Obviously this theme can be interpreted to fit your desires.

- The painting (shown below) and the story are both in the google docs file. If you have any issues accessing this file, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to help.



Rules:

- Your work must be completely original/all your own work.

- Be nice when critiquing other people’s work. Constructive criticism is fine, but don’t be rude. If you do, you will be disqualified from the competition and banned from the group.

- All pieces and comments must be appropriate.

Please let me know if you’re planning on taking part. I’d like to have an idea of who might be competing.  

Thanks,
- Joe

Unable to import to MuseScore iOS

After a recent update I'm no longer able to import anything (.mscz files) into the iOS MuseScore App. After one update it removed my entire library I had imported, so I imported a load again. Now I find I can't import anything anymore. This is the same on my iPad as well as my iPhone.

To import, on the Desktop version of MuseScore I type up the music I want & save it into a cloud based location (iCloud Drive) as a .mscz file. I then go to that location on my iPad, tap on the share button & select Copy to MuseScore.
If I do this now, the MuseScore App will flash open, but nothing will happen. When I do this the file should be accessible via Library > SongBook.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? There have been a few more minor updates since, but the issues persists.

If you'd like anymore information regarding this, please let me know.

Thanks,
Adam

Copyright infringement... again...

Hello!
Once again my composition Minnesota has been taken down due to alleged copyright infringement. And once again without any explanation as to what I am supposed to have "stolen". To my knowledge I have written this piece myself from scratch and therefore I'm of course very surprised that someone claims that I've used someone else's work.
The last time this happened I recieved a notification that it was a mistake on your behalf and you even apologized for the mishap.
Is this yet another mistake or is there actually a piece that sounds just like mine?
If there is I would like to know where to find it so I can listen to it. (Maybe someone  has actually stolen my piece of music?)
Best regards
Kalle Edh

Closeout

Folks,

What is the correct procedure for closing my account and deleting my scores? I have not found anything on the website that indicates the correct sequence such that the scores are deleted first and the account closed second.

It is not possible to delete scores individually due to the number of scores so I'm hoping there is an automated sequence or a back-door method (script/procedure).

Thanks in advance!
