Fake News & the Mueller Report

So we just got the Mueller report in and it turns out President Trump did not collude with Russia during the 2016 election contrary to the 2 full years of media coverage to the contrary. So what do you all think about the prevalence of fake news and bias in our country, and are the news anchors who were apart of spreading the lies going to be held accountable?

By the way, I am NOT a full fledged Trump supporter. I don't like the language he uses a lot of the time (although I don't disagree with many of his policies). Also I'm independent and am trying to look into both sides. However I think it is kind of ironic that the media shouted "collusion" and Trump said "NO!" and the media said "HE SAID NO THAT MEANS HE'S LYING IF HE HAD SOMETHING TO HIDE HE WOULD SAY NO" and then turns out he wasn't lying. 

Do violas deserve the hate?

Here's a fun one. :P

Violas get a really bad rap. Everyone makes viola hate jokes. As someone who used to play viola, I DON'T GET IT. We put up with some of the most BORING parts. I don't see the reason for all the hate! (I'm not actually mad about it ;) )

I think we should be praised. We are the underdogs of the orchestra.

What do you think? Do violas deserve the hate?

P.S an example of this can be seen in TwoSetViolin's Ling Ling workout video in Australia. One of the players asked them "If you had to choose between learning to play the viola or not being able to play any music, which would you choose?"

Hello People!

Hello! My name is Caroline and I'm new here. Some things about me:

My favorite singer is David Bowie
My favorite bands are Queen and Guns n' Roses
My favorite dancer is Michael Jackson
I love cats :3
I only listen to Rock music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. The only pop I like is Michael Jackson (and a little Prince). Modern Pop sucks :P
I'm self taught in piano and I'm teaching myself guitar (I'm open to any and all tips!!)

Also I want to be able to write my own music, but I just can't do it! Does any one have any tips about how I can learn to compose my own stuff? 

Rules of Composing?

Hi guys, I'm kind of new to MuseScore.

I'm a self-taught pianist (I've only had, like, two piano lessons, and hated them). I play by ear, though I can read music a bit. I've been playing for about four years, since I was 10.

I love just writing tunes that sound nice for fun, but are there any "rules" to stick to when composing music?

musescore pro

Musescore's customer support is horrendous. I have tried sending multiple emails which have all been ignored, and Musescore pro charges in annual $49 payments? I have tried to cancel my trial subscription after settling on a different website for transcription, and when that didn't go through, I was charged. I am a high school student and I am trying to dispute this, but Musescore's complete disregard for their customer base is disappointing for such an excellent website.

Show date and user name of the latest post in discussion groups

In MuseScore.com discussion groups like this one the info to the right of a thread shows the user who opened the thread, the date when the thread has been opened and the number of replies.
It would be VERY helpful, if additionally the date of the latest reply and the name of the user who posted the last reply were shown. This would avoid having to open the thread again and again if I want to see if there's something new.

Upload of some MuseScore V3 scores still doesn't work

This problem has existed for several months now, I wonder if it will ever get fixed?

I believe the problem is limited to MS V3 scores. I now have several scores which after upload are being processed for a very log time and eventually the link to the score will result in a "Page not found" message. 
I've tried to export one of the scores to MusicXML and import it in MuseScore V2. 
When uploaded the MS V2 version of the score is processed as expected and available. This is not a feasible workaround as quite some layout adjustments would need to be applied.

Embedded MuseScore player has lost the full-screen icon and F shortcut

Sorry, but the latest iteration of the MuseScore embedded player does not take any account of users who display a miniature "thumbnail" of the player.  A small player is useful to show links to multiple scores on a single web page.

The previous player had a clear "square" icon to make the score full-screen. But now the F shortcut has been disabled,  and the "square" icon has disappeared. So the full-screen option is only accessible through the 3-dots menu - an extra unnecessary step.

How is an end-user to access full screen viewing when the iframe is defined with "height=60"?  See example HTML page here:

Thanks for any help.

MuseScore Viewing Online

Whenever I go to listen to scores online with my iPad or iPhone, the viewing is super buggy. Two examples are:

1. At a certain point in the piece, the playback will just stop, and won’t continue with the piece.
2. If I try to click on a different measure to listen to, it just goes back to the beginning and not to that measure.

Any help would be appreciated.

What Now?

Hey, cellists! I am a Suzuki student just finishing up book 10 (last cello book) and I was wondering what I should learn next. Book 10 consists of 1 piece: the Boccherini Cello Concerto #1. The only other cello concerto I've learned is the Haydn cello concerto #1, which is Suzuki book 9. I am about Intermediate level, I've been playing for almost 9 years. I know that the Dvorak Cello Concerto, Elgar concerto, and Shostakovich concertos are really famous, maybe one of them is next? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Count until a Pro user comments

Inspired the game over at MyAnimeList (http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1518596), let's count upwards and see how far we can go until a count breaker (listed below) comments and makes us start over.
(The title is kept for historical significance. Count breakers were Pro users with 200+ followers in Season 1)

Rules:
- A player may only post once every 24 hours** or after another player has posted, whichever comes first.
- A post by a count breaker (listed below) restarts the count (that post is 0).
- The count must go up in order (no missing numbers).
- A counter who holds the last post of a run of at least 10 becomes a place holder.
- A counter can only hold one place at a time. If they win a run that is higher than their record on the board, their record is updated; otherwise, the run is ignored and not placed.***
- Top 3 place holders become count breakers next season (this includes staff).
- The season restarts every 12 pages.
- A run is allowed to spill into the next season, up to a maximum of one page. The new count breakers start as soon as the count is broken or when the count reaches the second page, whichever comes first.*
- MuseScore staff (those with the "staff" badge) count as normal, but they can additionally nullify a count breaker's 0 post and turning it into a regular count post by posting immediately after it (i.e. with no post in between). The staff's post should be x+2, where x is the number in the post immediately before the count was broken.****

* Introduced in Season 3
** Introduced in Season 6
*** Introduced in Season 7
**** Introduced in Season 10

As a courtesy, if your post is wrong because someone posted before you, edit your post instead of deleting it.

Current Season: Season 10
Next Season: Page 121

Count breakers for Season 10:
- ~𝔏𝔦𝔷𝔷𝔞𝔭𝔦𝔢~

1. A: 1
2. B: 2
3. C: 3
4. D*: 0
5. C: 1
6. E*: 0 :P
7: F**: 3 :P :P
