How to find somebody who is able to help with project?

  
We are organizing October one day programe in the frame of Meet and Code event, which is based like European collaboration projects developing computer skills for young genereation. We are organizing during our summer music courses Ameropa www.ameropa.org  program for young musicians, where we teach them how to write music in Muse Score, how to use your program etc. My idea now is to invite for one day program somebody from your community, who is in Prague, or close to Prague and is experienced. Can you help me with some connections? I found lot of groups, but that is difficult to find someone speaking Czech, as all discussion is mostly about music, not about program and in English. 
I would be happy if you can help me to find some voluntiers / collaborators / funs ..

New Piano Roll Feature on the musescore.com

Today marks the release of MuseScore Piano Roll. Piano Roll is a popular and convenient method to display piano notation in a way that not only simplifies learning a new piece for novice musicians who lack a teacher, it also beautifully visualizes each score.


(Video captured from https://musescore.com/classicman/scores/33715 )

Give it a try by simply clicking on the Piano Roll icon now available on all solo piano scores. Be sure to tell us what you think in Improving MuseScore.com!



All of these improvements are designed to not only make MuseScore.com the most valuable resource online for sharing and discovering great musical works but for learning them as well.

We hope you’ll be as excited about this new feature as we were to create it for you, and as always we look forward to your feedback.

This is just the first of an exciting series of updates and releases for MuseScore PianoRoll; we're already hard at work on improving the experience!

Problems with mobile app - search and battery usage

 
I've recently been having several issues with the mobile app (Android) and was wondering if anyone knows of a solution.

First, the search function no longer works. No matter what I search, with whichever filters, nothing happens and the main page with the highest viewed scores of all time are displayed. I've tried reinstalling the app and clearing data, however they only fix the issue briefly.

Second, the app is draining my battery in the background at a pretty extreme degree. I have a Samsung Galaxy S8+, and the app uses ~5% battery per 30 mins in the background, forcing me to force quit every time I exit it.

If anyone has any idea on fixes that would be great, I'm currently pretty much unable to use this app.

Variation classification?

I have two songs that are variations... of Canon in D and Mozart 545.5.  They are obviously not originals, but they are also not Pachebel or Mozart....   So I don't what you label those.
Maybe variations?
But I would certainly err on the side of the original composer (in my example Pachebel and Mozart)
BSG is 100% correct with this.

Sadly, I can't comment on his thread.  

'This item is temporarily unavailable' when trying to add MSCZ score to MuseScore Android 2.4.12 SongBook

I have version 2.4.12 of MuseScore on Android and I receive .mscz files from a friend who generates them using the latest non-Android version of MuseScore (probably Windows). I'm unable to add the last file (that I received a couple of days ago) to my Android SongBook. I've had many previous .mscz files that I've added and used successfully.

These are the steps I take:

* Start MuseScore
* Login (if asked)
* Select Library
* Select SongBook
* Tap '+' in top right corner
* Navigate to the folder containing the .mscz file(s)
* Tap the file I want
* Message 'Copying' is shown
* Message 'Opening' is shown
* Blank screen is shown (except for navigation / control options along the bottom of the screen)
* Tap 'back' button or choose back arrow in top left
* Library screen is shown (NOT SongBook screen)
* Select SongBook again
* SongBook shows an entry that is just a number (no score title)
* Tap the entry and message 'This item is temporarily unavailable' is shown
* Library screen is shown again

I tried starting from scratch (i.e. deleting app cache and deleting app data) which, of course, removed all my existing SongBook entries (I knew this would happen as I've been through this process previously in June - but it all worked that time!). However, now I find I can't add ANY of my .mscz files as I get the problem described above.

OK, in trying to resolve the initial problem it seems I might have inadvertently shot myself in the foot as I've lost all my existing SongBook entries and I can't re-add them now!

Nevertheless, the problem remains - why can I no longer add any .mscz file to my SongBook?

Thank you for any resolution.

I seem to have lost my Pro status

Although my status in my settings menu says I have an active pro membership, I still see a "start free trial" in the top right, and worse all except my most recent scores are showing as "hidden" in my scores page. Is this because I opted out of the use of my data by third parties? I do pay to use this site so should have a reasonable expectation that it works, and that you won't spam me.

Classification system relies on user knowledge and good will

Go to 'Browse'. There are a large number (today) of excerpts (in some form) by Mozart marked as "Original". While these excerpts are greatly simplified from Mozart's score, marking them "Original" does not seem right.  Mozart isn't under copyright, but his intellectual property will last as long as human civilization.  On the other hand, I have written arrangements of works of great composers by significant additions that really are mine, but credit-sharing requires more subtlety than "check one of original or public domain."

New Public Domain Publishing Guide

Hey Everyone,
As you know, we have recently launched our new process for publishing Public Domain score. Immediately after launching this new process, we turned our attention to how we could continue to improve this feature to better support the members of our community.
Creating a clear and effective way for you to publish Public Domain works is just as important to us as helping other users discover your hard work in making these scores available.

The easiest way to help your scores to be discovered is to create a direct link between your scores and what other members are searching for by ensuring your scores are named correctly.
To improve the discoverability of your scores, we have created this Public Domain Publishing Guide, a simple set of instructions for this essential aspect of the publishing process


Naming the Work

  1. Work should have an original official name (without abbreviations or missing words). 
  2. If a work has more than one name (official and unofficial), you should add 2nd name to the end in brackets. 
  3. If a work has an opus number, it is required to be added to the end of the official name.
  4. Also if work has a catalogue number (such as BVV, KV, R etc), it’s advisable to also add it to the end. 
  5. If key is an official part of work name, you also should add it to the name. For alteration you should use words, not symbols (C sharp major, E flat minor, but not С# or Eb)
  6. If you adding a score related to only a part of work, you shouldn’t add this part as a separated work. You can add part name to the score title


Examples:
Incorrect:
  • Moonlight Sonata
  • Sonata in C Moll
  • Sonata No 14
  • Sonata No 14, op. 27, No.2 First Movement

Correct:
  • Sonata No 14, op. 27, No.2 (Moonlight Sonata)



Names of People
When adding a new composer, the format should be Last Name, First Name Middle Name
Examples:
Incorrect:
Ludwig Van Beethoven
Beethoven Ludwig Van
Correct:
Beethoven, Ludwig Van


Traditional or Folk Songs
When adding a traditional or folk song, use the format: Folk song, Country. 
Example: 
Incorrect:
Russian Folk Song
Correct:
Folk Song, Russia


We are always open to suggestions and need your opinion about this text.

Best daily/weekly scores

Hello everyone,

You could say that I'm a daily Musescore user and I really enjoy all the possibilities.  I am always searching for new scores to play on my instrument. However, I spend a lot of time scrolling trough all the rapidly-uploaded scores which I am not looking for. Maybe there is a possibility to quickly find the daily/weekly most viewed scores? In that way everyone is able to directly see the best new scores other users offer. 

Cannot change 'score type' on existing score anymore

I am attempting to change the score type to Public Domain on one of my existing scores. After selecting Public Domain, selecting the composition related to the score, then hitting 'Save', I am redirected back to my score without any success message. Going back to the edit page afterward shows the edits did not save. Nothing in the developer console indicates any client-side error.

Changing a Score to Public Domain Now Seems to Do Completely Nothing on Mobile

I've repeatedly tried to update a fairly faithful arrangement of a Chopin prelude I made (https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/2793561) to a public domain work on my Android smartphone on Chrome today, but every time I change its score type to public domain, add that it's an arrangement of the preexisting public domain work "Preludes, Op.28", and update, no blurb comes up afterwards on the score saying that its public domain status is under review, and whenever I try to update it again, the score reverts to having a score type of non-public domain.
