First score with one million views!

Hi Everyone,

I'm happy to our first score to reach 1 million views!

A few months ago this score wasn't even in the Top 10. In October the Freddy Mercury biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" was released . As a result, the score for Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the most popular scores on MuseScore.com.

In a few days, we are anticipating a second score will reach 1 million views (https://musescore.com/user/12461571/scores/3291706). It is my hope that in the near future, millions of views will be standard for many scores.

Thank you, MuseScore Community!

Load score markers on my audio track and it doesn't work.

Just loaded my newest score from 3.01 today.  Tried to load score markers on my audio track and it doesn't work.  Went back and it was loaded automatically. Think I'm going back to the old version.  Also I noticed some of my old scores from a year or two ago the audio score markers seemed to disappear. Seems to be random. I only notice it when some one makes a comment and I go back to listen to it. I reload the score markers and it's fine.

Audio Quality

Something I've noticed recently is the drastic difference in the piano's sound quality for MuseScore.com and the MuseScore mobile app. I expected that MuseScore.com's piano quality would be lower as its in a browser and would allow for faster loading times, and faster in the app since the app is downloaded on a device. However, this is not the case. When listening to a song I'm practicing on my phone, the quality is so different that I just close out of the app and simply open the same sheet on my device's web browser. Perhaps the audio quality could be improved for mobile devices?

MuseScore's Dishonest Advertising

I have a huge issue with the way MuseScore has been presenting their sales as of late, and though I'm sure that this has been discussed plenty of times before, I'd like to put my own two cents in. Let's talk about the Black Friday and New Year's sales. Around the the time of each of these events, MuseScore placed a banner for 60% and 50% off, respectively, of a one-year Pro subscription at the top of nearly every page on the site. Now one would expect that there would be an offer of one year of Pro for $19.60 during the Black Friday sale and $24.50 during the New Year's sale based on the standard price of $49 for one year of Pro. However, rather than using their typical full price, MuseScore raised the standard price of a one-year Pro subscription to $83.88 specifically for these events in order to create the illusion of a better deal. However, these adjusted sale prices ($33.55 and $41.94) were actually only marked down by approximately 31.5% and 14.4% from the $49 original, which is starkly lower than the advertised 60% and 50%. I frankly don't find an awful lot wrong with the prices themselves, as I understand that a company has to bring in a substantial revenue in order to remain in business, but the morality of the advertising is questionable at best. Since this is ultimately a group for suggesting ways in which MuseScore as a whole could be improved, I'd like to offer a simple solution to this entire ordeal: advertise honestly. This platform has so many great things about it, but that stunt left a sour taste in my mouth, and I'm positive that the same is true for many other users. After all, it certainly doesn't help your image if your own userbase is skeptical of your company's market practices.

Idea for Discussion Search Bar

I think a discussion search bar within a group it would be a great feature, especially for larger and more active groups such as this one or Randomly Screwing Around. Then, before posting discussions we can search the group for related posts so we don't accidentally post a repeat.

Another idea... it would also be very nice if we can add tags to our discussions, making the discussion search much more easy to use.

Dynamic Crescendos and Descrendos

Hello Friends!
    I've been using Musescore for as long as I can remember, and the one thing I've always wanted to see is dynamic crescendos and decrescendos. I was wondering, is there any talk of implementing this? What I mean exactly is, having the dynamic change during say a long tone for brass or wind instruments, is this possible?
Thanks in Advance for the responses!

Is there anyway to retrieve lost views to a composition -- explanation below.

I am not a huge fan of statistics, but I do like to have my music played and downloaded.

I composed a variation on Canon in D a few years ago and it got about 3,000 views I then deleted it and uploaded a new version (rather than updating) and the new version now has around 4,000.


If I could get this one song to have 7,000 views, it could be a great gateway into my other music.  because I would be on the first page of the search for Canon in D.

I made this same mistake with iTunes.  Where I created a chess app, and sold it for a few thousand bucks, not realizing the value of the 'chess' keyword placement (the keyword was worth 100X more than the app)

I have since learned my lesson.  But, I was  wondering if there is anyway I can retrieve the views I essentially deleted from my Canon in D.   

Lastly, since I have decided to make this slightly immature inquiry, the most verbose post possible, the top Musescore songs that show up in search in no way correlate to the best songs to download.   

formatting screwed up when opening MS2 files in MS3

I have opened my current project in MS3 and found all kind of elements at strange locations: tie and sostenuto-lines, dynamics etc. Also system distances and other global formatting settings were not correctly picked up. Applying the option 'reset the position of all elements' did change but not really improve the problem.
Further tests with older files resulted in pretty much the same picture.

I am generally using style files. Since these are not portable between 2 and 3 I first suspected this to be the cause of my trouble but more detailed inspection suggests that something else must be interfering. 

Has any of you experienced similar problems?
