Feature request: add ability to play Musescore app with screen off.

Please consider adding the ability to play the Musescore android app with the screen turned off. There are plenty of situations where musicians may wish not to have the screen on while listening to a score on their portable device, such as when travelling. Right now, users can't put their mobile device in their pocket while listening without the  screen being triggered accidentally. Also, the app automatically stops, won't play in the background, when the user switches to another task on the device. Lastly, having to keep the screen on when listening, also wastes battery life. With my other musician apps, such as metronomes and mp3 audio players, I can listen to them while I am out walking or doing some other physical activity and have my phone tucked away. Thanks, Sam 

Chats number for new users has been limited.

Hi! Today we’ve added a new private messages restriction due to the spam issue. Now every new MuseScorer can create only 3 new chats per day. Existing users who registered more than 1 month ago won't experience any private messages limitations.

I hope this restriction will not cause problems for the community, but will actually help us to avoid spam in PMs.

Pathetique Sonata under Game of Thrones, Really?

I just uploaded my Pathetique Sonata orchestration and I look at the search bar category and it says Game of Thrones. Um, the Pathetique Sonata, orchestral or not has no relation to Game of Thrones so why is it in that category?

Here is the score where you see a category that the music is irrelevant to:

It would be better to put it under Strings or Woodwinds than Game of Thrones. Or even better would be to add an Orchestral category and put it in that category.

Development Plans for MuseScore App on Android

Is there any sort of roadmap for the development of the Android version of Musescore? Although there have been improvements over recent months there are still some significant rendering issues with the current version, including:

1) Sans-serif fonts are rendered as serif.
2) Colour is not supported, only black.
3) Text rendering is grainy, as if it's not being antialiased - perhaps this is a consequence of text being black, no greys available.

I have posted an example image on the site, which can be seen here:

My name is Caroline and I just joined! A bit about me:

David Bowie is my favorite singer
Queen and Guns n' Roses are my favorite bands
I love cats :3 
I play piano and an eensy weensy bit of guitar
My biggest pet peeves are my siblings and when someone steps on the back of my shoe and doesn't apologize
I love to read, write, draw, and sing
I only listen to Rock music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. The only Pop I listen to is Michael Jackson and Prince, NEVER modern pop :P

I hope to meet some new people here and I'm super excited to be a part of this group! Toodles!

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?
