Suggestions for improvements in Sets

I have noticed that the layout of sets have been changed and it looks much better (especially on desktop) now. It's the same look and feel as the scores displayed on the "Profile" or "Sheet Music" pages. Kudos to the designers and developers for this. 

With that in mind here are some suggestions for improvement in sets (you'll notice some old and already mentioned here and hopefully some new)

1. Friendly URLs for Pro users. 

If we can have something like  https://musescore.com/anes/gymnosolitude_1
we should also be to have something like
https://musescore.com/anes/sets/gymnosolitudes
rather than  
 https://musescore.com/user/75150/sets/3626546

2. Move the "INFO" section from the right margin to the left one (on desktop) / from the bottom margin to the top on mobile

That would be more in line what we have on (for example) "Sheet Music" tab and more users would actually read the description of sets - motivating set creators to add the description in the first place. 

3. Redesign "Sets" page

The sets page  https://musescore.com/anes/sets looks like nothing else on the site.
It would be better as it had a similar layout as the redesigned "specific set" page. Either allow users to upload cover page for the set or auto-generate one based on its title (and possible description).

4. Give set creators freedom to set a specific order of sets on the main sets page

Currently the order is selectable from a drop down box (by date or alphabetically). I feel the set creator should have a freedom to set up their specific order just as they can set up order of scores inside a set. 

5. Allow creation of set consisting of other MuseScorer's uploads

One can do that on YouTube, SoundCloud and similar sites. An examples of these set would be "Arrangements of My Works by Fellow Musescorers" or "Piano Sonatas by Fellow Musescorers I Really Love" (titles for illustration purposes only). In this way, in addition to Uploaders, Commenters/Critics, Passive Bystannders, would could also have a useful category of users: Curators. 

6. Allow favoring and commenting on sets'

This would make sets first class citizens here and make the entire site more uniform. 

Now, I do understand that MuseScore.com team has its own priorities and add stories to their board based on their complexity and perceived business values, so this is not a request but just some ideas for considerations.

Scores Won't Play On Desktop Computers

OK, just tested on both Chrome and Firefox on my Windows 10 desktop computer (admittedly, both of them were my own scores), and both scores just kept loading instead of playing, even after waiting for a full minute after pressing the Play button. This happens regardless of whether I'm logged in or whether the piano tutorial is on.

Bizarrely, I just tested on Chrome on my Android smartphone and one of the scores I previously also tested on my desktop computer DID play successfully.

Score Upload Malfunction?

A few days ago, I updated one of my scores with some articulations like accents and marcatos. However when I uploaded it, the articulations didn't play at all. This hasn't happened to me in previous Musescore software updates. It worked fine before but for some reason it doesn't work now. I'm wondering if this can be fixed.

Here's an example (the problem can easily seen on the first page):

Reporting Off-Topic Scores

Is there a way to report or remove scores added to a group that are clearly outside the scope of the group?

I am a member of the Church Organ Musician group which clearly states its purpose as “Music used by organists for service playing” but there is a person who has posted multiple pieces based on video game themes into this group as well as into many others.

I have looked for a button for flagging or reporting but haven’t discovered one yet.

Can a group owner remove a person and/or their off-topic scores?

Drop-down 'Action' (etc.) menus not displaying on the Score Manager page ...

When visiting the Score Manager page from the 'My scores' link on the main drop-down menu, the five Menu headings [Action, Privacy, Created, Desc, 10] are no longer displayed - there is a mostly blank white bar, with only the left-hand check-box and the central "Search" box showing. Re-loading the page does not make any difference. However, if I visit any of the score-pages shown, and then hit 'Back' to return to Score Manager, the Menu bar usually displays correctly. Please will Staff investigate - Thank You !  
I'm using Windows 7 desktop PC and Firefox latest version; and this problem has appeared only in the last few days.

People in some countries (like mainland China) usually don't have VISA cards or any other form of paying methods for the pro features. How are we supposed to do with it? Could the developers please add some other paying methods?

It's pretty much explained in the summary. We usually don't have VISA, American Express (that's obvious), or any other card to pay for the pro features. Thus, we aren't able to go pro, nor even get a trial period as that also needs billing details. Could the developers please add some other paying methods, such as AliPay or WeChat payment (hot paying methods in China), and possibly other ones to hopefully make any other person who doesn't have access to VISA convenient to purchase pro features? A million thanks to you.
