Liking Your Own Posts?

I found just now that I was able to like my own post on a Musescore.com discussion. On other websites I frequent that give users the ability to like posts, I do not see that functionality, probably for integrity and honour reasons.

Anyone else believe that removing the ability to like your own posts on this website should be done?

Importing files from "Mozart" Music software

Hi, we're very much enjoying exploring the possibilities of Musescore.
Previously we've used "Mozart" which is good but more limited, so we have a stack of Mz files of arrangements. Does anyone know of a way of importing Mozart files into Musescore? I tried a very simple pdf image of one on the pdf converter on offer here, but it came back as complete gobbledygook, sadly.
Thanks for any help.

My friend is locked out, so can't write here.

My friend Gertim (@SDG) seems to be locked out of the site, so much so that he can't access other people's scores let alone log in for his own or use forums or contact forms (and email here is routinely unresponsive).  He recently un-followed a very large number of people (nothing wrong with that) and fears he triggered a spam filter. He is at his wit's end. please contact him and or me, thanks.

Disable "Automatic Placement" in Send to YouTube feature.

Not only that, the the texts, pedals, ornaments, etc. are really big even though I made it small. It's really big compared to previous versions.
I tried directing readers of how you should play or maybe sometimes I'll put an arrow in the sheet. But it fades in with the notes make it hard to read.

Yes, I'm demanding people who actually want to play this to use their Left Toe.

Can’t Log In and Page Not Found

Sometimes when I try and log in, it doesn’t work, my username and password is correct and everything, but the ‘log in’ button is grey instead of blue so I can’t log in. I try closing the tab and re opening the website but it doesn’t work.

Also, when I search up a song, sometimes it says that the page is not found and when I try refreshing or going back it still says that the page is not found. I know that the song definitely exists as I have searched it up before. Closing and reopening the tab also doesn’t work.

Score download option "MusicXML" creates uncompressed xml file w. extension ".mxl"

I realized today that, when I download a file from another user and select Music XML as download option, I don't get the compressed file but the uncompressed XML, but the file still has the extension ".mxl".  The difference is obvious from the file size, too.
I remember that in the past, when using this download format, I got a compressed musicxml file which I could open without problems in MuseScore 2.3.2. The last time I did this was on Jan. 5 this year, so I'm not sure when this was actually changed.
Now, when I download using "MusicXML" option and I try to open the downloaded mxl  file in Musescore 2.3.2, I get an error message:   
"Kann Datei  [my file name].mxl nicht lesen: ungeeignetes Format"
(Can't open [my file name].mxl: unsuitable format )
And the details say there was an error when reading Container.xml in line 1, column 1: unexpected end of file.  

After I found out that I could see the xml when opening the downloaded file in Internet Explorer or text editor (which wasn't possible in the past), I tried and renamed the downloaded files' extensions from ".mxl" into ".xml", or ".musicxml",  and both could be opened.

I just wonder why this was changed, because the compressed xml is so much smaller. Wouldn't it be possible at least to offer both the compressed and the uncompressed version?  
I posted this here because it seems to be a download issue on the website.

- Update: When I download an older score with the MusicXML option, I get the compressed xml. Does it make a difference when the file was stored online?
