Several Suggestions/Requests for future Synthesia releases:

• A link to enter online forum directly from Synthesia game
• Top midi folder (instead of searching through midis have a favourites icon)
• A check box per instrument which you could check allowing multiple instruments to be silenced, or removed, changed to a different instrument, ect) instead of individually clicking off each one at at time.
• Delete a midi in Synthesia directly to trash (Lets face it we've all heard some terrible version's midi's we don't want to hear ever again...)

I think #2 and #4 are coming in next version 0.8.2 ;)
About the link to the forum, IMO a browser bookmark is fine enough, but as this forum needs indeed a bit more exposure,
it could be interesting to think about an "active" start screen, with the latests forum posts, homepage news, latests played songs and more...

But wouldnt that have to be in window mode, or when you click the button Synthesia minimizes and goes to the forums?
"And now for something completely different."

^Nicholas is working on the Minimize windows thing after 0.8.2

More people in the forums via a link from the game was the idea behind a link directly from the game.

Another idea:

• During a song have a button from the pause menu to go directly to the score board. (Often when a song has a minute or two to play out after the playable notes finish.... Instead of holding down the arrow key for a few seconds)

The other ones have been answered. This one is already possible with the built-in copy/paste stuff on the track settings screen. You can pick a mode, instrument, color, sheet music, or "everything", and then just use the "paste" button on each track (or stronger: the "paste all!" button at the top-right) to duplicate the setting you copied.
