Native Messaging Function... anyone?

Is there anyone else here who would appreciate having a messaging function built into MuseScore? I know I would; I don't like having to use my private email for correspondence within the MuseScore community.

My idea is for messages to go directly to the user's MuseScore account, rather than to their personal email address that they used to create their account. I can easily think of examples where the current messaging system proves to be impractical, and you likely have experienced some of the disadvantages yourself.

The fact that I'm forced to disclose my email address to each and every user I message is enough cause to look for a better solution!
Just a simple messaging function included in the MuseScore website would remove all of the ongoing problems.

Catalog / index listing for scores contained in Groups and Sets

This may have been discussed previously, but I can't figure out how to get a brief title-only listing of the scores in a given group or set.

For example, there's a set of Scott Joplin piano rags on this user's page, and I may want to know if the set includes Joplin's "Magnetic Rag". 

When I click on the set, I get a very long page that included "full entry" metadata for each score in the set, and as a user, I have to do a lot of scrolling to see what pieces are in the set, and if the piece I'm looking for is included.

What I'd like to see is an "index list" (a set of titles, like a Table of Contents) that does not include an image of the score and all the score description metadata. That would making browsing a group or a set of scores much more efficient. The solution could be as simple as using a drop-down widget to hide or expose the score description notes and the image of the score that is included when you click on a Set or a Group listing.

Am I overlooking a way to do this that already exists?

Highlighting names

Can musescore add the little feature of highlighting the username of a creator when they comment on their own score like how YouTube does with its content creators. For instance if I make a score and I comment on it my name will be highlighted and people viewing the score can easily recognise it, especially if it’s some update for a work in progress medley because I doubt people read descriptions often.

[New Feature] Email and desktop notifications and notifications settings

A few weeks ago we launched the Notifications system on MuseScore.com. We’ve been reading your positive feedback, and we’re glad you’re appreciating the new feature!

Today we’re delivering another update to the Notifications system, in three parts:

1. Notifications settings. Now you can configure what types of notifications you want to see. You can access your notifications settings from your Settings Menu or the Notification Panel. You can choose any kind of Notification and choose where you want to receive it: on the website, email or web pushes. 

2. Desktop Push Notifications. Now you can subscribe to receive Notifications via Desktop Push. It makes sure you don’t miss new notifications, even if you don’t have MuseScore.com open.

3. Email Notifications. We will send you notifications once per hour ONLY if you don’t open the Notifications panel on the website. We'll launch Email Notifications in 2 days; but for now, simply use the readily available Notifications Settings.

Enjoy the new settings! I'm looking forward to seeing how this impacts your experience with the website.

Links created on the "Improving MuseScore.com" contain invalid references

The underlying hyperlinks for the automatically-generated names (e.g., @Mike Magatagan") in posted comments/replies, contain invalid hyperlinks.

For example: on a reply to an "Improving MuseScore.com" comment, the user name printed at the beginning of the comment contains an invalid reference (e.g., https://musescore.com/user/Mike%20Magatagan instead of the actual https://musescore.com/mike_magatagan )

Report Composers

I think there should be an option to report a composer. Now I don't know if this is already a thing and I just haven't been able to find it or what, but musescore needs this. If you go to browse its just spam, probably by bots, of beyond distant skys that all have different titles. These accounts post it 5-10 times and it ends up being the only thing there.

Let me know your input i'm curious.

Advertisements

Hello all. 
I was thinking of a feature that another forum I was in had, and perhaps musescore could implement it.
Basically, users submit advertisements (banners) that advertise their groups, profiles, discussions, YouTube channels, you name it to the admins of musescore. Maybe you have a submit button somewhere on the site and people can drop their pictures along with the link to their product or service. 

Once the advertisement is reviewed, you could put it as a banner ad in the browse section or as one of those square ads on people's scores, or wherever you think of.

I feel like this could get the community perked up and more interested in things, plus groups could get more publicity? i dunno

Working on a waltz

This and other dances in general I have kind of been avoiding for the first 10 years that I composed. But I figured that if I am going to start composing dance music, waltzes would be great to start. I decided on a tempo of 90 BPM, so like Andante Moderato in the Italian terminology, to make it not so difficult for people to play once it is finished. I also decided on a key of D major because I compose a lot of my pieces in flat keys so I figured I should balance it out with some sharp keys.

I know these things about a waltz that apply more or less specifically to a waltz:

Most have a 3/4 time signature(though some have a 3/8 time signature and others are at 6/8)
Most are at a moderate speed
Left hand pattern is usually 1 bass note followed by the chord the bass note is in
A lot involve pedaling, though not all do
Waltz is dominated by melody

But I still find writing dance music to be hard, even though it is a shorter length composition than a sonata. Minuets are the hardest for me so far(I tried writing a minuet before and it didn't turn out well). My phrases and melodies in general also tend to be on the long side. So I might end up with a 10 minute waltz instead of a 5 minute waltz. 

Can't fully upload to YouTube with version 3

Since I use Musescore 3 I am having trouble sending my scores to YouTube. Loading stops at 95%. There is a movie to download afterwards, but there is only a few seconds of material on it? I've tried it with Musescore 2 and that works. An additional problem is that I have already made a number of scores in version 3 and those files are not read by 2, otherwise I could do it through that detour.
Am I the only one with this problem? If so, what am I doing wrong? If not, what can one do about it?
