Hi

Hi everyone, my name is Sierra. I just thought I'd mention that I am also the 700 member. (I though that was pretty cool) I enjoy music of most any kind (my favorite genres are contemporary, country, and classical. I am also a christian and definitely not ashamed of it. Also thanks to Rebecca Y for letting me join.

Playback foulup

Four days ago I noticed a new style of font on the comments section of my page. I figured it was your new Spring look, but now whenever I want to play a piece of mine or elsewhere one of three things happens:
1) The blue line begins to race across the page before I press play and it plays with the scroll 8 or so bars ahead; 2) it stutters or does not play; 3) It plays (eureka!)
Hardly a good way to entice listeners, wouldn't you say?
Sometimes it stalls and it takes forever to leave the page.

Until this occurrence all had been fine. I have rebooted and my PC seems to be fine in all other aspects. I use Windows 10, Firefox and ver 2.3.2.

Musix update [ANNOUNCEMENT]

Aight, so it has been brought to my attention that the whole musix thing is getting quite a bit out of hand, so Imma step in and make an announcement (btw thanks @mnmwert) So!

- The devs are going to ensure that musix gets banned. No one needs to do anything about it anymore. If a suspicious account messages you, the best response is NOTHING. Or you could reply in a way that makes them stop messaging you so nothing blows up. They can't troll you if you don't allow it. 

- If you do choose to reply, and things get out of hand, that will no longer be this group's business. I really do try to help people settle down drama in here, and I became involved in the musix thing as a result, because as the owner of RSA, I want it to be a happy community that doesn't tolerate trolls or creeps. But it looks like things are starting to get out of control, and if I step in to any more musix incidents, it's only gonna contribute to the blowups. As much as I try to moderate this group, I am only a group owner, and not a musescore dev. I cannot control anything that happens outside of groups I own/moderate, and I (along with the rest of RSA) cannot do anything about his private messages to you. If you get into another incident with musix, report him to the devs, and not this group where everyone can see and get involved. Any other discussions about musix after I post this discussion will be deleted. 

- You do not have to forgive musix in order to stop perpetuating the drama. I don't condone his actions, nor am I prepared to forgive him and allow him into this group. I will continue to keep him out of this group, and, if appropriate, resist him if he tries to harass me or this group in general. But a blowup requires at least two people, so he won't be able to start a fight with just himself or someone who's clearly uninterested to fight with him.

- To those of you who were heavily involved (including myself): like mnmwert said, we don't hold anything against you. We understand that you were disgusted with musix's sexual harassment, and so am I. But we should drop the whole thing altogether if we want to move on. 

- I repeat - ANY DISCUSSION POSTED AFTER THIS ABOUT MUSIX WILL BE DELETED. You do not need to forgive him, but from now on we will try our best to ignore him and handle the situation maturely. We made mistakes and overreacted out of anger and disgust, but we can turn it around and go back to having the happy, chatty, amazing RSA we've always known :D

What do you look like right now????

you don't have to put a pic and you don't have to say anything at all if you don't want to, but how would you describe the way you look and your clothing at the moment?

I have long brown hair that is kinda messy 'cause I forgot to brush it this morning.
My eyes are also brown, but more hazel-y. I'm not wearing any makeup since I'm at home so my face looks like a zombie's. =P
I'm pretty tall, 5'5. 
Right now I am wearing bootcut jeans with weird rhinestone thingy's on the pockets, and a turquoise shirt with sleeves that go to my elbows that says 'Beach Patrol, Manhattan Beach California' on it, with a medical cross in the center... (no i don't live in CA).
I'm not wearing shoes, but by some miracle I'm wearing matching socks, that are grey and blue...
 
well that sums me up at the moment.

Which Professional Sax Should I Invest In?

The local music store here, Groth Music (Also the biggest music store in Minnesota) has three different professional tenor sax models for sale, at least that’s what shows on their website. If they have more, I’ll look into it. For now, I just want to know if there are opinions.

The options are:

Selmer Paris Professional Model 54JU Tenor Saxophone

Selmer Paris Professional Model 84 Tenor Saxophone

Yamaha YTS-82ZII Custom Z Tenor Saxophone

Btw, I’m leaning towards the Custom Z because I want one with black lacquer so I can look cool at school :P

Riddle Game!

Basically, I'm being a copy-cat. Only thing different from the one in RSA and this one, is this is for riddles only. 
So, for those of you who don't know the rules, I will try to explain. There will be 10 riddles per round. If you answer a riddle correctly, you will get a point! You are allowed to guess as many times as you want. The person that has the most points by the end of the round, wins that round! 
Also, only Phia and I will post the riddles. Please, do not try to post your own because I will delete them. If you want to post riddles, you must do it in a different discussion. 
Thank you! 

If you were an Undertale character, which would you be? (Also kind of a rant about dark thoughts...)

DON'T PAY ATTENTION TO THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT UNDERTALE IS!!

I would be Sans. Not because of his awesome puns and powers (he's really sans-ational eyy), but because I understand how he feels. Sans is lazy because he knows that nothing he could say or do would ever make a difference. Even if he told someone, they would just forget in the next reset. And he's been through thousands of them, some are from you, the player, but most are from Flowey before you fell.
I know that no matter what I do, eventually, everyone will forget. Why should my grades matter? Why should anything I do matter? It'll just be forgotten...
There's a reason why I'm lazy too.
If I could leave, I would. But my family and my friends, and their well-being, is all that matters to me. If I left, they would be devastated.
I can't let that happen, now can I?

This musix thing needs to stop now. I'm serious.

Look, I know he was a jerk, but what's going on is practically no better then what he was doing.

We have a very slanderous account of the events in this group's history ( @Rebecca Y my intent contacting his mother to try and help him, not to get him in trouble. I don't want my name to be a part of something portrayed in the way that you wrote it, can you please remove my name from that section of the group's history?). More recently some people pulled a prank on him essentially trolling him and taking justice into their own hands. 

I am not saying what he did was justified at all. However I'm saying that after having a talk with his mother (as you know I have her contact information) you all do not know the exact full story. The kid really doesn't know any better. Sure he should be banned, and he got banned. But I'm against the vigilantism that has been taking place. What's going on is overstepping some really plain moral boundaries. 

I admit myself that I took a part in the drama at first, saying how horrible what he did was. I apologize for anything I did that was out of bounds. 

beyond that I'm surprised that a lot of you are still following in on this. I just feel like some of us should know better. Some of the Christians in this group I know should know better. I should know better. Whatever happened to mercy and compassion? Whatever happened to forgiveness.  Heck I'm mad at myself for encouraging this.

I twisted the intent of my part in this so it would fit in with the group. I portrayed myself contacting his mother as vigilante justice and revenge, not what I actually meant it to be. 

I think we really need to make sure that the drama in this group doesn't get out of hand. I think we really over stepped our boundaries here. This became more then innocent fun. We could have really hurt another human being. What if you or I were in their position? Would you want to be treated that way.

I'm sorry that I'm writing this. I prefer to just be funny and lighthearted. I definitely did not enjoy writing this. I don't mean to condemn anyone and I hope no one feels that way when reading this. I'm writing this because I hope that we can change. I hope we can admit that this time that we did do some wrong things. 

Anyway please take my name out of any history for this group regarding  musix.
I also don't want to be known as a 'Musix annoyer'. 

I don't know, but if this is what this group stands for - vigilante justice, mal-intended drama, hurting another human being, well, I don't know if I want to be a part of that. And it pains me to think that I might have without realizing that.  

Thanks for reading through this.
I don't mean to offend anyone.
I hope I didn't offend anyone.
My apologies.
