New log in procedure on musescore.org
Almost three years ago, I shared my thoughts with you on The State of MuseScore. With that post lasconic, werner and myself introduced the creation of musescore.com, a sister website to musescore.org. While musescore.org was meant to facilitate collaboration between MuseScore users and developers, musescore.com served the purpose to easily share your sheet music on the web.
On top of this, both websites had their own separate user registration and login flow. This created a confusing barrier for MuseScore users to really get engaged and become a contributing member.
To tackle both the communication and the log in issue at once, we are introducing changes to both sites. Both will share the same site header form now on, so they nicely cross link to each other. Also the login system will be unified, by phasing out the standalone log in system on musescore.org. Instead, you will be logging in now with one username and one password. As an extra, it's now also possible to login with your Facebook account. Becoming a MuseScore member takes literally just a couple of clicks.
What to do
1. In case you have an account already on musescore.com and you use it to log in on musescore.org, nothing will change for you.
2. In case you have a separate account on both musescore.com and musescore.org, then those will automatically be linked with each other when you use the same email addresses on both sites. So no worries for you. In case you use different email addresses for both sites, please change the email address on musescore.com. Once done, your two accounts will be linked on the next login.
3. In case you don't have an account yet on musescore.com, while you did already have one on musescore.org, then create a new account using the email address you used before to register on musescore.org.
Help, I can't login anymore
If you find yourself stuck with the log in process or the site is reporting some error, please contact me and explain with which username you don't manage log in with on musescore.org.
Thanks for sticking with us during this period of transition. We understand this may cause some confusion but on the long term this will help the MuseScore community to grow even faster.
