RULES (Must Be Read Before Sign Up)!

Thanks for joining! If you're thinking of competing in this awesome group, there a few rules that must be announced before you sign up. 

1. No plagiarism! (No exceptions and will be removed).

2. No foul language (of any kind, includes bullying and offensive language otherwise you will be removed).

3. Must sign in first. If you compete without signing in, it makes things harder for Jay and me to ref.

4. Scores must be added to this group once completed so that we can have easy access to them.

5. NO randomly entering scores in if you haven't signed in! This will result in the unfortunate removal of the member and the score added. It makes things very hard and disorganized for us Admins.

6. Have a good time!!! :D

If you agree to these terms then type a "Y" if you agree, or an "N" if you don't agree. If you don't agree, unfortunately you will have to be removed. (These rules apply to those cheering on contestants as well). Doing this helps keep things organized and easier for Jay and me to keep things in check, and ready for a fun and friendly competition. Phew! Thanks everyone!

Congratulations! I personally really loved this song. It totally matched the adventurous feeling of the story you included. And the percussion is outstanding! I’m deeply impressed. Congrats on winning not only the February challenge, but the FIRST official music challenge of Jay and John’s challenges! Quite the historic event for this group! Well done, we hope to see you continue to do great things!

-Jay

WOW! Just WOW! I was blown away by your score! The adventurous feeling you somehow perfectly captured was breath taking! Not too much, but not to little. Congratulations! And I'm looking forward to seeing more from you.

Note entry needs a triplet selector

 
I don't see how to include pictures here, or I would show you. Stay with the long description. This was a feature of a notation program that I had in 1986 on an Atari computer! (yeah, I'm *that* old)

Why not include a special "duple-triple" selector in note entry? Entering music that shifts from regular duple (eighth notes) to triplet (eighth note triplet) should be as easy as shifting from eighth note to quarter note. The current tuplet system is more awkward than it should be.

You would click on the added button to change modes.  The appearance of the button will change depending on the mode. When duple (this is how it is now) it would show two eighth notes beamed. When in triple mode it would show three eighth notes beamed. In triple mode, if you select eighth note and enter a note, it would start an eighth-note-triplet to cover one quarter note. In duple mode, the eighth note would be just as it is now. Triplet mode quarter note will start a quarter-note-triplet that covers two beats.

This is not a replacement for the current tuplet system. I only want to enhance note entry. This enhancement would make it easier to enter triplets. Other tuplets would be done with the current setup.
 

Why stop at 50+ ?

Why can't I get the exact total of notifications received instead of having 50+ ? (it tells me I have more than 50 notifications but I can't see the exact total, for example if I got 60 or 70 notifs or even more)

MS staff, I think it's important for us to get the precise number when there are more than 50 notifications.

CC#2: Selfmade-videogame medleys

Hey guys!!  So I'm sorry for not being on as often as I'd like, school is supposed to be #1 priority here and all, but I've been wanting to do this for a long time: A videogame medley competition!

This is a longer, more complicated one, as you can tell.  Diverse orchestras are accepted, and solos are as well.  Be sure to label the separate themes and songs in the medley, and they should be around thirty seconds to one and a half minutes long, within lax parameters.  The total medley can be as long as you'd like, with as many pieces as you want.  It does not have to be a real videogame, and as long as it follows all other criteria.

Electronic music is discouraged for the sake of creativity, so no music under "electronic" or electronic guitars.  You are encouraged to name your "fake video game", and give a brief description of it.

I will be the primary judge of this competition, and will finish judging on February  23, for the sake of giving ya'll time to work on this.  You will be judged on a scale of 1-10, for effort, uniqueness, simplicity/complexity, description, and separate pieces time limit.

Have fun!  I can't wait to see what you guys have got!  (BTW if you're having trouble, taking some inspiration from themes like Minecraft, legend of Zelda series, or Terraria, all of which have full soundtracks on youtube, will work excellently for getting starting bases to work off of.)

Please post your song to this group and the link of it here.

My friend is locked out, so can't write here.

My friend Gertim (@SDG) seems to be locked out of the site, so much so that he can't access other people's scores let alone log in for his own or use forums or contact forms (and email here is routinely unresponsive).  He recently un-followed a very large number of people (nothing wrong with that) and fears he triggered a spam filter. He is at his wit's end. please contact him and or me, thanks.

[New Feature] Email and desktop notifications and notifications settings

A few weeks ago we launched the Notifications system on MuseScore.com. We’ve been reading your positive feedback, and we’re glad you’re appreciating the new feature!

Today we’re delivering another update to the Notifications system, in three parts:

1. Notifications settings. Now you can configure what types of notifications you want to see. You can access your notifications settings from your Settings Menu or the Notification Panel. You can choose any kind of Notification and choose where you want to receive it: on the website, email or web pushes. 

2. Desktop Push Notifications. Now you can subscribe to receive Notifications via Desktop Push. It makes sure you don’t miss new notifications, even if you don’t have MuseScore.com open.

3. Email Notifications. We will send you notifications once per hour ONLY if you don’t open the Notifications panel on the website. We'll launch Email Notifications in 2 days; but for now, simply use the readily available Notifications Settings.

Enjoy the new settings! I'm looking forward to seeing how this impacts your experience with the website.
