Public/Open Discussions to All Groups?

I've noticed several people spamming "look at my score" discussions since the community page was released. I think it would be a great idea if there is a public/open discussion setting where you can tag all of the groups you want to share a discussion with. Then we wouldn't have to scroll past 20 duplicates of one particular discussion in the community page. The members of each of the groups tagged will see the discussion on their dashboards/community page once.

Almost there!

Hello, all! Update for you... we are in the process of filling moderator/challenge creator/judge positions! Check out the descriptions below and contact myself or Jay with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!


Moderator: As a moderator for J&J’s Challenges, you will create and update signups for challenges, answer participants’ questions, delete spam and other inappropriate posts/comments/scores from the group; however, you may not remove a user from the group without Jay’s permission. 
Qualifications: 
The ideal candidate will be a consistent and frequent Musescore user, positive and friendly, somewhat organized and good at explaining things. :)
Interested? Go to... https://forms.gle/ZgPDvBuBvqq3TQhQ7 

Challenge Creator: As a Challenge Creator for J&J’s Challenges, you will brainstorm and fine-tune composition/arrangement contests on a monthly basis, and possibly post mini-challenges as well. You will work closely with the Judges’ Circle, considering their advice and ensuring they have the correct criteria to judge each submission. You will work closely with the Moderators to ensure each contest is released on deadline.
Qualifications:
The ideal candidate will be a consistent Musescore user who has completed several original arrangements/compositions. A wide range of musical experience and a working knowledge of music theory are both important skills in this position. Creativity and innovation are essential traits.

Judge: As a member of the Judges’ panel, you will evaluate each submission to the contests, settle on a winner, and provide constructive feedback for each submission. Contests occur at least once a month, though not every judge is required to vote every time (this is to ensure that contests are completed in a timely manner, and allow for personal circumstances that prevent a judge from participating). Judges will work closely with the Challenge Creators to receive the criteria for each contest. 
Qualifications: The ideal candidate will have over 5 years of experience in music, with at least 1 year of experience as a composer/arranger. A firm grasp of music theory is important. Preference will be given to applicants who demonstrate either a cursory knowledge of many musical genres/styles/eras, or extensive knowledge of one particular musical genre/style/era.

Vertical score alingment: first page vs other pages

My score has one system with 13 staves on every page, with a title at the top of the first page.

The bottom of the first page system falls close to the bottom margin whereas all the other pages are aligned to the top with a much larger space at the bottom. I can find no way to ensure that all pages fill an equal amount of vertical space as one would normally expect in an orchestral edition.

I would expect the title header + the first page system to occupy the same vertical space as the system by itself occupies on all the following pages. Is there a way of ensuring this in the page setup dialogue? or elsewhere?

I can use Musescore 2 or 3 for this project.
