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.

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.

My Summer Challange: 10 compositions

As stated in the title, the best way to improve your composing skills is to compose (cliché but very true). Therefore, I will embark on a journey of trying to compose a minimum of 10 compositions over summer break. I want you guys to spread the word and join me! Perhaps, this can not only be a chance to learn, but, also meet new people. 

The rules are as follows: 
You can comment down below featuring your new piece and give a short description of it if you like (e.g. inspiration, the style and question about something you may be unsure about). 
You can post up to 5 scores per comment, but, let's be nice to everyone, by not spamming the comments in order to get views. 

A suggested format would be: 
The number of the piece
piece title - url
short description

Example: 
Gould:
composition #1
''So you want to write a fugue?'' - musescore.com/gould/so-you-want-to-write-a-fugue
A satirical piece...

It is okay if a piece turns out bad or short, the point is that you just do it and have fun along the way. 

Bach

It's always nice discovering new pieces that you aren't so familiar with that turn out to be masterpieces...today I came across the Bach french overture which I'd heard of before but never taken the time to listen to. It really is a beautiful suite of pieces - full of those wonderful satisfying Bach sequences, intricate counterpoint, i could go on...

Ah Bach...

Nocturne (Fantaisie?) in "B minor"

 Not your traditional nocturne (if by traditional you think mainly of Chopin or Field)... so I'm not really sure what to think of it or what to call it, perhaps a Nocturne-Fantaisie.

This was originally written in 2012 as my second piece of music. I just went back through and heavily revised it. It's still strange, but was fun to revise. I probably won't be editing it significantly any further since it's old and will leave it as is now (unless there's some major critique/problem you may notice). Anyway, thanks for listening.

"Wild Horses" a short rough draft I've been working on

 I whipped this up in about two days for a /r/monthlycomposition challenge where I randomly generated four instruments and three different chord progressions. It was mostly just a way to get myself to sit down and work on something.

So far I like the direction it's headed in and eventually I'd like to expand it into a full concert band piece. Any suggestions or critiques are welcome!
