We wanted to share with you several exciting updates to the "Messages“ page.
We've made a number of changes to the design of the Messages page. You'll notice it's easier to see the complete content of a message, filter messages, and… *drum roll* the page works beautifully on mobile devices. Cool, right?!
But, perhaps the biggest news is what the developers have done behind the scenes. They have completely reimagined how ”social actions" on Scratch are stored in our database. A social action is information about when you share a project, make a comment, love a project, etc. We deal with literally millions of social actions per day, so figuring out a way to store and manage them is no small feat. We're happy to report the developers redesigned the system to perform way, way, way faster!
We hope you like the changes and appreciate all the hard work from the Scratch developers and design team.
As with any update to the website, we expect you may run into a bug or glitch. We kindly ask you report those issues in the Bugs & Glitches forum.
