Concerning Pokemon Rumble / World / U / Blast music...

I'll keep this short. I've noticed an astonishing lack of music from any of these games.  I would make an arrangement of one but I have horrible skills at Band arrangements and such. If you have time, please consider.

My scores aren't updating correctly...or at all.

I just finished some major edits in two of my scores, and now musescore won't let me choose the file to replace it with in the edits page, and when I click "save", a random plank page opens that says, "{"result":"ok","info":{"url":"/user/27321385/scores/5666087"}}". Nothing else happens. Is this a bug that found it's way in because of the new feature added earlier, or is this a part of the new feature that is supposed to happen? I need help.

Looking for big band charts

Hi!  Some of you may recognize me, I've been involved with jazz and MuseScore education online forever, but for whatever reason, it only just occurred to me to turn here for music to play :-).

I direct a big band of adult amateur musicians.  We have a library full of the typical charts by Nestico, Mantooth, etc.  I figure some people here have probably created some really great music for conventional (5+4+4+4) big band instrumentation and spent time getting the part to look and all so they are all ready to print and perform, but don't have access to a big band.  If that's you, hit me up!  If your music is for that format and the parts are in good readable shape, we'd love to try them out!  Respond here with links - whether your own music or others' you think we should check out.  My band isn't the Basie band and won't sound like that :-), but I'm happy to make a recording of us doing our best!

This isn't a competition, although who knows, maybe some day we'll organize one.

Notice, Please Read:

On August 1st, I posted the 3rd period's challenge. It is okay if you did not see. As a reminder this is the challenge:  The 3rd challenge will start on August 8th and end on September 8th. This is the challenge: 1. None of the song can be in 4/4 time. 2. It has to include more than 1 instrument in the whole song.  Please start adding songs.

[New Feature] The new form makes it possible to upload Public domain works.

As many of you know, we’ve been recently forced to revise our policy and restrict printing and downloading for basic accounts. Today we’d like to present a new update aimed at making it possible to download Public Domain scores.

What’s Public Domain?
Public Domain is the status of the work whose copyrights have expired and which is now available for download royalty free.
In the basic sense, all works published before 1923 are in the Public Domain, but in fact the status of particular works vary according to the country. Here is the link to the wiki page to learn more about Public Domain.
Music has existed for thousands of years and humanity has created tens of thousands of masterpieces We, like many of our users, would like these works to be distributed as freely as possible.

New Uploading form
We’ve changed the uploading and editing form of scores. Apart from standard fields to fill out, there’s now a new section called “Type of Composition”. In this section, users can mention what work exactly their scores are related to. The options are public domain, original composition or non-public domain.



In case you choose Public Domain, you’ll need to enter the name of the work your score is related to. After it’s been automatically checked, your scores will be available for unrestricted download.

Removing limits to download Public Domain scores
In the nearest future downloading and printing of Public Domain scores won’t be affected by the limits set for basic accounts. We believe it’s not right that users who create quality content have to pay to upload it. This is the first step towards resolving the issue.

Our further plans
- One of our next top priorities is to let original composers manage the downloading feature.
- We will mark up the existing sheet music library according to the Public Domain / Non Public Domain scores. We might need our Community help in this matter.

To sum up
This is a completely new functionality for Musescore, as we’re applying the system to check PD/nonPD compositions for the first time. We can’t exclude the possibility of you finding bugs in the way new algorithms work. Please, don’t hesitate to let us know about any possible issues.
Last but not least, I’d like to point out how grateful we are to our Community for all the support and understanding in this situation. We believe that actions speak louder than words and we’ll prove how important it is to us. We’ll continue to work on spreading and sharing music, and of course, taking good care of composers’, arrangers’ and copyright holders’ rights.
