Numbers Against Us

This game is a number game... obviously. Girls will try to count up, boys will try to count down (they can even go into the negatives if need be if girls begin extremely poorly). We start at 0. If you are transgender, agender, non-gender, etc., just pick male or female and stick with it for this game to lessen the confusion. No posting twice in a row.
EDIT:When girls reach 200, we will have to count down, and guys will count up.
EDIT 2.0: GIRLS ARE COUNTING DOWN NOW..
EDIT 2.5: Once girls reach -200 or guys reach 300, we will reverse directions again to where guys count down and girls count up.

For example: 
Female user: 1
Male user: 0
Female user: 1
Other female user: 2
Male user: 1
Female user: 2
And so on... for ever and ever... 

I'll start.

Commission #1

Alrighty! About time we get into our first song of the whole shebang called Jam of the Month! This month's song is.....

Cherokee!

Cherokee is a classic up-tempo swing tune by Ray Noble made in 1938. There have been many adaptations and played recordings of this song, some of which include the original recording with Ray Noble and his Orchestra, Charlie Parker, Clifford Brown, Bud Powell, and Christian Mcbride. Cherokee is all played in the same key, Bb major, but it's tempos and styles may vary. Listen to these many versions above to see which style you like best! 

Have fun with this one, people! Let's start it off strong!

[New Feature] The new form makes it possible to upload Public domain works.

As many of you know, we’ve been recently forced to revise our policy and restrict printing and downloading for basic accounts. Today we’d like to present a new update aimed at making it possible to download Public Domain scores.

What’s Public Domain?
Public Domain is the status of the work whose copyrights have expired and which is now available for download royalty free.
In the basic sense, all works published before 1923 are in the Public Domain, but in fact the status of particular works vary according to the country. Here is the link to the wiki page to learn more about Public Domain.
Music has existed for thousands of years and humanity has created tens of thousands of masterpieces We, like many of our users, would like these works to be distributed as freely as possible.

New Uploading form
We’ve changed the uploading and editing form of scores. Apart from standard fields to fill out, there’s now a new section called “Type of Composition”. In this section, users can mention what work exactly their scores are related to. The options are public domain, original composition or non-public domain.



In case you choose Public Domain, you’ll need to enter the name of the work your score is related to. After it’s been automatically checked, your scores will be available for unrestricted download.

Removing limits to download Public Domain scores
In the nearest future downloading and printing of Public Domain scores won’t be affected by the limits set for basic accounts. We believe it’s not right that users who create quality content have to pay to upload it. This is the first step towards resolving the issue.

Our further plans
- One of our next top priorities is to let original composers manage the downloading feature.
- We will mark up the existing sheet music library according to the Public Domain / Non Public Domain scores. We might need our Community help in this matter.

To sum up
This is a completely new functionality for Musescore, as we’re applying the system to check PD/nonPD compositions for the first time. We can’t exclude the possibility of you finding bugs in the way new algorithms work. Please, don’t hesitate to let us know about any possible issues.
Last but not least, I’d like to point out how grateful we are to our Community for all the support and understanding in this situation. We believe that actions speak louder than words and we’ll prove how important it is to us. We’ll continue to work on spreading and sharing music, and of course, taking good care of composers’, arrangers’ and copyright holders’ rights.

My scores aren't updating correctly...or at all.

I just finished some major edits in two of my scores, and now musescore won't let me choose the file to replace it with in the edits page, and when I click "save", a random plank page opens that says, "{"result":"ok","info":{"url":"/user/27321385/scores/5666087"}}". Nothing else happens. Is this a bug that found it's way in because of the new feature added earlier, or is this a part of the new feature that is supposed to happen? I need help.

How I begged Queed Rebecca Y to let me into this group: poetic flattery

First, I'm not a troll. And, yes, I do know how that sounds
Though I am quite old and gray and somewhat large around.
I do love mutton, mead, and fire,  but will not fuel a fight.
And I won't turn to stone at dawn in the early morning light.

I used to teach in music school, but now my work is other.
I play the tuba pretty well. I have an older brother.
I can write a melody and design a boat in tandem.
My conversational style? Well, it can sometimes seem somewhat random.

I worship you, bow down to you, Oh, Queen Rebecca Y!
I promise to behave myself, and not to make folk cry.
So let me in this group, I plea, my character is sound!
I want to hang with music folk, and randomly screw around.

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 11
Next Season: Page 133

Count breakers for Season 11:
- Jaybird1
- FL-Music
- Pianodudette

Example (* means a count breaker, ** means staff):
1. A: 1
2. B: 2
3. C: 3
4. D*: 0
5. C: 1
6. E*: 0 :P
7: F**: 3 :P :P
8: A: 4
... and so on.

I'll start: 1

What are some annoying things that people say to you?

"Why do you have bunny teeth?"

I get this from kids a lot because I have very crooked teeth that cause my two front teeth to stick out a bit more than they should. I can' wait till I get braces...

"Are your nails fake?" 

No, I just have really long nails.

"Your hair is too long."

O_O

"Rock n' Roll is the devil's music."

NO. IT'S. NOT.

"Where do you go to school?"

My living room. I know, this is a normal question, but this leads to a bunch of awkward homeschool related questions that are super boring... like:

"Does that mean all of your schoolwork is HOMEwork??"

Yes.

Ocean sounds

Hi I'm very new at this,I get melodies in my head but am struggling to write them down.  I want an ocean feel and am not really sure how to evoke it, as I want melodies to fit 3 poems I've written about the apostles, Peter, Andrew and John.  I can hear the feeling I want to create I just can't work out how to get it on paper as it were
