Uploading scores problem

I have 64 scores to upload to MuseScore of about 70Kb each. I'm used to do this without any problem but now, it's been 2 hours since the download didn't succeed. I tried it on 2 PCs and also starting directly from the score, but nothing works!
The scores are from MuseScore 3.0.2.2.53215
How can I fix this problem? It is urgent...
Thank you for your help

Musescore Piano roll compared to Synthesia app (Mac, PC, Android, iOs)

The piano roll feature seems to be inspired by Synthesia (orginally Piano Hero) which has been around since 2006.

Synthesia is a seasoned practice app for pianists. One simply connects a MIDI keyboard/digital piano via USB to a device (Mac, PC, Android, iOs).  The key feature is that one can take any MIDI file, even multi-track files, and open it in Synthesia and pick the track(s) one would like to practice, and set Synthesia to wait until the correct keys are played before advancing the score.

Synthesia and Musescore Desktop is a great combo, and Musescore’s export to MIDI shines!

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.
