[New Feature] New privacy settings and an option to limit score downloads

Hi everybody!

Our content contributors are Musescore's most valuable asset. And one of the most important and frequent issues that our contributors encounter are confidentiality and copyright protection.

Today I want to present two important updates that we have launched.

1. New privacy settings

Previously, Musescore.com had two privacy settings for scores: Private and Public.
Public scores were available to everyone. Private ones had limited access. However, they could be published with the help of embed player or shared with direct links to them. So basically, Private scores were only partially private. This is why these scores were subject to general rules, including copyright.

This is why we decided to change the old system. We renamed Private to Unlisted, and the new (100% private) setting is now called Private. The new Private scores can not be shared in any way. This setting is suitable if the only person who is going to work with the score is yourself. This setting fully ensures the privacy of your data.

2. A new Pro-feature: Prevent anybody from downloading your scores.

We noticed that the authors who post arrangements to Musescore.com often express a wish to prevent other users from downloading their scores. The reason behind this is their concern for plagiarism.

Starting today, Musescore.com allows authors to Prevent anybody from downloading their scores. This feature is only available to Pro users and works in a test mode. We hope that this change will improve our contributors' experience, and yet will not cause MuseScore.com to stop distributing scores.

We feel like it is necessary to notice that the scores that prohibit downloads are less interesting for users. Therefore, they may receive fewer views than similar scores without this restriction. So think twice before using this option. In the future, these scores will be separated from the others in the lists and search results, so that the user could quickly identify it without actually clicking on it.

If you face any issues with the new features, please makes sure to notify us in the comments. 

Thank you for your attention!

Bug: Cannot open files

  
Steps to reproduce:
Start the Google Drive app or a file manager app
Tap on a mscz file
Expected: The Musescore app launches and opens the file I just tapped
Actual: The Musescore app launches and then nothing happens

  
Device: Alcor Access Q784S, screen resolution 1024 × 600
OS: Android 6.0
It might be important that I’m not a Pro subscriber but I have previously purchased the MuseScore Songbook app, so that enabled some Pro features.

[New Feature] Original Songs are available for download to all users

Hello, Musescore!

We continue to introduce the series of updates that we started in July. A few weeks ago, we had to make some adjustments in the scores download system and make it a paid functionality. 

As a result, we implemented several updates that improve the user experience for the Musescore community:

  • We opened an option to download Public Domain scores for free. This update was one of the essential steps we had to take in order to improve the Catalog. It helped us to identify the correct titles and composer names to most of the scores on the platform.
  • We allowed our authors to set limits for downloading of their files.
  • We introduced new privacy settings for the scores. You can learn more about it here.
  • Public Domain scores are no longer under a download limit. From now on, all users will be able to download as many scores as they want.

And we are not planning to stop there. Today we have implemented the next necessary step, which will eliminate the negative impact that some changes had on independent authors scores. Up until this day, Original Songwriters content has been available for download only for Pro users.

We understand that the situation where you have to pay to access user-generated content is not fair. However, we had to move forward gradually, one step at a time, and first use Public Domain songs to test the download mechanics. As a result, we are ready to take the next step:

Starting today, Original Songs are available for download to all users without restrictions.

From now on the download mechanics for Original Songs work just like the one for Public Domain scores. I hope this is one of the last essential checkpoints that will bring Musescore closer to its original goal - to be the largest, progressive, affordable, and community-friendly platform for publishing, sharing and distributing digital music.

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 ..

Done. Many thanks to all to comments to the half-finished version

https://musescore.com/user/6595486/scores/5698050
This piece is written to memorise my university days (almost exactly 10 years ago I was enrolled), in which I used half a theme from the university anthem.
The half finished status made me stressed, and influenced my lab works and my thesis writing. Thus, I just used all my spare time to finish it ASAP.
I am not very satisfied with connection between different parts, especially that between parts D2-D3-E. Ideas are welcomed, and I will try to modify it when I recovered from the current mood.

Pravidla.

Pravilda, ačkoliv jsou už jedna v popisku, chci je mít schrnutá i tady, ať sem můžu v rámci odpovědi ta pravidla přidávat.

3. Moderátor či já máme během rozhodovaní o porušení pravidla vždy pravdu
4. Opakovamý spam se trestá trestem nejvyšším - permanentním vyloučením ze skupiny. To samé platí pokud se zde nebudete chovat slušně, protizákoně (pokud se zde budete chovat proti zákoně, budeme informovat přímo musescore.com) apod.
5. Mějme tu k sobě úctu. Administrátoři ani moderátoři (vlastně kdokoliv) se tu nebude na nikoho povyšovat. Tímto se ale nevylučuje bod číslo 3, protože pořádek musí být.
6. Všichni zde mají možnost slušně a v souladu se zákonem vyjádřit svůj názor a nikdo nikomu nesmí za něčí názor nadávat, nesouhlasit samozřejmě může, jsme demokratická země.
7. Pravidla se můžou kdykoliv změnit, přidat nebo ubrat. Vy si prosím vždy zkontrolujte, jestli se něco nezměnilo.
Děkuji a doufam že se brzy zrostem.

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.
