Admin Elections (August 2019)

I see how hard leading an orchestra by myself is now. :3
I don't have the time and energy to run this by myself, so now I'm adding bimonthly admin elections! :D

Admins MUST:
- Moderate the group (duh)
- Add people who have signed up
- Remove non-orchestral pieces
- Remove people who HAVEN'T signed up (looking at like half the orchestra here) This bugs me the most

Admin Sign-up Form (Google Forms):
https://forms.gle/BaKo9wc1U9EjvEVu5

Admin Sign-up Form (Musescore):

How many scores you have -
Leadership Experience -
Weekly Activity (1-10) -
How trustworthy would you consider yourself to be? -

Admin Requirements:
At least 1 score
Some kind of leadership experience
At least 2 log-ins a week

Out of everyone who signs up, I'll add, get this, ONE.
Elections will stop in April 2020 and will resume when someone resigns.

who is chinadoll?

Some folks have wanted to know, "who is chinadoll?" These one or two folks are musescore members with an abundance of free time and curiosity about trivial issues that have nothing to do with music composition. That said (written), let us (me, this is confusing) be clear, they are very nice people and chinadoll is deeply touched (in the head, most likely) by their interest. So here goes.
  
Chinadoll has beautiful glossy golden brown hair, large soft eyes, a very quiet shy disposition along with an exceptionally sweet and gentle nature. Chinadoll loves loves fresh fruit (especially bananas) and vegetables. Yes, chinadoll is a Syrian Hamster with a bit of a talent for composing music. Late at night when everyone is asleep, chinadoll will tap out the notes on the home computer using her little paws. She loves attention and lots of gentle petting (especially if you give her a treat).

Polonaise in Bb, Feedback Wanted

I have been composing a polonaise in Bb for the past few days. The A section of the polonaise is what I have written down. The A section of the A section is what my first few questions are about and is the exclusively diatonic section. The B section of the A section is more chromatic. I am asking these questions because they came up to me after listening to my own polonaise a few times.

1) Is the bass in the A section of the A section(bars 1-8 and 23-30) too dense?

2) In the consequent phrase(bars 5-8), is the bass too close to the melody? Should I bring it down an octave?

3) In the B section of the A section(bars 9-22), am I handling my chromaticism correctly or not?
 
4) Is it too much of me to expect a pianist to play a polonaise rhythm in octaves for the whole B section of the A section?

5) Do I smoothly transition into the inversion(left hand becomes right hand kind of inversion) or not?
 
6) Is my A section too repetitive with 2 periods and a motive sandwiched between the 2 periods and the repeat sign?

7) Is 30 bars enough for the A section of a piece that I expect to be 200 or so bars long, or should I extend my A section further? 

Here is the link to my polonaise score:

How else do you think it could be improved? Right now, I'm thinking of what to put in the B section of my polonaise.
