How does my Gravity Falls theme sound?

So, because Gravity Falls is so awesome and its music is pretty dang epic, I decided to do a theme. I was wondering how you guys think it sounded compared to the real thing. I think it is decent, with a few things that COULD be edited. I do not know how to share links or anything on a tiny phone, but please check it out on my profile and tell me what you think.

Embedded iframe with YouTube recording fails in some web browsers

This is a problem which has existed for quite a while, and it would be good to sort it out definitively.

Many of us use the "Share" option to embed an HTML "iframe" of the MuseScore player in our own website. It's really useful for making practice files for choral societies and church choirs.

With a MuseScore file that creates its own playback, it usually doesn't matter which web browser you use: it plays normally.  But if the score is sync'd to a performance recording on YouTube as the default sound source, then the playback doesn't work on all web browsers. 

Here is the result of a test of various browsers which I ran today:
-  Chrome 73.0.3683.75  = broken
-  Edge 42.17134.1.0 = broken
-  Firefox 65.0.2 = plays ok
-  Internet Explorer 11.648.17134.0 = plays ok
-  Opera 58.0.3135.107 = plays ok
-  Vivaldi 2.3.1440.60 = plays ok

You can run the test yourself on my HTML page, where the SATB player is linked to a YouTube performance by Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir:

Time Signature

I'm arranging Crush by Cigarettes After Sex, and was wondering if anyone could help me decide the time signature? I keep thinking 5/8 but it seems rushed. 4/4 might be the signature, but the notes are so loose it's hard to shove it into that.

Let me know if anyone has an opinion. 

Thanks,

Why have a score for Bodhrán?

There is debate in the Bodhrán community, as to whether the playing should be written down or not. No Bodhrán player I know plays a tune the same way twice, and it is very much playing with the feel of the music.

Having said that, when I first started Bodhrán drumming I found it useful to have a guide as to what to do, so adding Bodhrán to MuseScore may help beginners. Also it would be useful to have the drumming added to a Tin Whistle score, for example, which gives a feel for what the two instruments will sound together.

However if you are dead set against Bodhrán notation, then I understand :-)

Anybody home? (Awaiting permission to join groups)

I recently asked to join two groups. It's been days and I've received nothing from either group. I don't suspect the owners are enlisting the FBI to do a background check so I assume the owners are absent, away at school, generally derelict or, perhaps, have bought a farm. I wonder how many others are awaiting confirmation.
I realize this is not the fault of MuseScore management...perhaps someone has a solution?

Mobile version of score player does not show play time

I think the redesign of the play bar is fine. I don't care much about placing it at the top or bottom etc., But I've found that when I play a song on my phone, I cannot see the current play time anywhere. This is very annoying as I often make comments or communicate with collaborators using time markers (e.g. section 3:00-4:12). It is very inconvenient if the time information cannot be seen.
