I'm spinning this off of Tantacrul's thread on 3.6/4.0 updates.
Musescore is a wonderful project/product; certainly it (and Covid) have spurred me back into composition with an intensity I've never before managed. Thank you!
But the organization (small-o) of Musescore is a little obscure to me: there's .org which "is, and always will be, free."; there's .com, which operates as a freemium site, and is ?responsible? for funding development and maintainance of the .org site (?) What is the exact relationship between the two? [other than posters on the .org forum get yelled at--justly--for complaining about their .com accounts.] And then there is Ultimate Guitar--greetings Kaliningrad! Who exactly owns what (tangible or intangible)? Who exactly is on the payroll? Run as a non- or at least not-for-profit, I assume. Certainly, those moderators who will respond helpfully to my queries within minutes, and on a Sunday morning, deserve any shekels they receive, if any.
Although I do not have a pay .com account, and have no wish to do so, there was at least one instance when I was feeling particularly charitable, and wished to donate to .org directly--the way I do IMSLP or wikipedia--but found the mehcanism to do so too questionable and opaque. Perhaps an improvement in the structure here?
Also, is there a way to--unobtrusively, of course--contact individual users directly over .org? over .com?
Or should I not be asking these questions, and stick to "laissez-vibrez" curves?
