So I had to kick a member (Indy500) for spamming a link to an unsecure website. Sorry, but spam for no purpose is not tolerated.

Okay then, I started a discussion trying to get to 1k comments, and I thought it would fail. As I am writing this, Lizzapie, Mnmwert, Vash Hartman, and myself are spamming to get it to 1k. It's already at like 150 or something (every 2 minutes I refresh and I have 10+ notifications lol)

Now the member count has capped out at around 1 member per day, BUT this is a random group, and I didn't really expect it to be this active.

I'm just going to leave this group alone for a while, only update this discussion every once in a while.

MuseScore 3 crashed after adding MuseScore Drumline!

I had a perfectly good MuseScore 3 working program, after upgrading to the latest version 3.0.5. There was a link to download MuseScore Drumline, which I clicked and installed the extension. Now I can't get MuseScore to load at all!

I've re-downloaded it but Windows 10 refuses to open it. All I get is increased CPU and Memory usage and eventually I have to close the unopened app.

Any suggestions?

Thinking of making a separate account for symphonies

So, I have been planning out my first symphony. I gave it the nickname "The War Symphony". It still isn't flushed out yet but I have decided to have it be a programmatic symphony with this movement structure:

First Movement:

Key: Bb major
Aspect: Battle
Form: Sonata Form

Second Movement:

Key: F minor
Aspect: Death
Form: Not decided on yet but I'm leaning towards ternary form

Third Movement:

Key: Not decided on
Aspect: Battle again
Form: Scherzo and Trio

Finale:

Key: Bb major
Aspect: Victory
Form: Sonata-Rondo Form

The first movement is what I have flushed out the most out of all the movements so far in my plans so obviously, that will be the part I work on first. But I'm wondering, since I can't really afford a Pro membership(maybe a few years down the line I will be able to afford it but I can't currently), should I make a separate account to put my symphony score on once it is finished? And if so, should that account be just for my symphonies if I happen to want to compose more than 1 symphony?

Check out my new personal project!

 
       I decided to write a piece with 3 completely random songs to challenge myself. I believe it will help me in the future when I write professionally and need to transition between movements. 
Please critique this piece! Or at least some feedback (thoughts, opinions, requests) would be nice. 
If you stick around for updates, expect a big run after where Moonlight Sonata left off. It will help to transition back into Hymn of Acxiom. 
Notes: 
- The harp part is a sound effect, not an actual part to be played 
- All diddled phrases are to be played as normal rolls 
- I will update sticking soon 
- This piece will eventually come full circle and will end with the ending of the first unoriginal piece 
- I changed all the settings so the sheet music would look as close to Sibelius as possible, but they don't go through well online 
- I used two soundfonts 
Pieces Used: 
- Hymn to Acxiom 
- La Marseillaise (French National Anthem, only minor section) 
- The second half of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata mvmt. 3
