Scores not processing.

I know there is already a similar post about this, but it's from early December, and I feel that it needs to be brought to light again.

Our scores are not processing. I uploaded a score for symphony orchestra nearly an hour ago, and it just says, "Score is being processed. It will automatically be displayed when finished."

I know this is not normal, as in the past scores have been uploaded very quickly.
Also, I'm not the only one having this issue. @Howard_C. said earlier today that the problem from December had returned, and his score has been "processing" for over 3 hours, perhaps longer, as I don't know when the comment was posted. Does anyone else have this problem?

Can we make this website live?

I was thinking, along with other requests, that we should have a green dot when someone is online. 
When you get a notification you don't know until you refresh the page, is there someway to make this a live website? The second someone replies or comments or anything to trigger a notification, it comes up immediately, or when having a conversation you don't have to constantly be refreshing the page.

Every Negative Action Should Be Confirmed by "Are you sure you want to X" Warning

This is an extension to the discussion https://musescore.com/groups/improving-musescore-com/discuss/5032847.

Negative Actions:

Leaving a Group
Unfavoriting a Score
Unsubscribing From a User
Deleting a Comment
Reporting Spam

There are probably a few more that I cannot recall at the moment. Right now it is very easy to unintentionally perform a negative action. 

I unintentinoalliy unsubscribed (at least) twice and only later when notice I did not follow a user who I was sure I had followed before I realized what I did. 
I unintentionally deleted (a positive) comment to one of my scores.
I am afraid I might have reported a spam a few days ago when reply to a discussion button was added and the only option in the menu was Report spam. 

I cannot be the only clumsy person on this site. Things like that did happen to others. A confirmation message before execution of negative actions would improve general MuseScore user experience. 

Send to YouTube is producing some bizarre titles

A score title of: "Malagueña" from the Suite "España" (Op. 165 No. 3) ..." becomes becomes quoted characters with each '"' replaced by the escape sequence "&quot" when the score is sent to YouTube using the MS "Send To YouTube" option. It looks like there is a special character escaping issue that is new (older scores from last month do not have this issue).

This issue manifests itself in the title, subtitle and body text.

Side Panel

I think Musescore should have a side panel like Youtube for similar scores. Also on the Browse Page I think Musescore should have a category for scores that are trending - based on how popular they are. Just an idea. 
Sometimes it seems that the only way to publicize your songs is to make a hundred discussions. This might be a way to deal with that frustrating problem.

New login interface

I'm not sure if it was just a test but the new login interface where the window pops up but doesn't take you to a new page looks great. I had it the first time I logged in today but I don't see it anymore. It's elegant and takes you straight to the dashboard instead of the Get Pro ad page. (Seriously. There are so many other Get Pro buttons it's really redundant. We know if/when we are getting Pro. Intentionally making the login more inconvenient will not change our mind. If anything, it'll just drive away new users who may want to go Pro later on.)

How do you place *one* quarter rest in a measure?

As often as I've tried to add a quarter rest to the measure, it works, but it adds **two** of them, and I am unable to delete the other rest, because there are no other notes in that measure, which is fine, because, in a 4/4 tempo song, only the first and last measure, can have less than 4 beats per measure. And if you add the fist and last measures together, it will equal 4 beats anyway. 

So, how do you place *one* quarter rest in a measure?
