In my opinion the messages is actually better now! But what about Alerts…

I agree.

Great update! Wish it was a little easier to see new messages, though. Also, if you could “Flag” Messages to come back to them later, that would be awesome.

Still cool though!
This is a pretty common answer to this new update. I made a user script to fix this, and the problemm about the messages being to big. (If you don't know how to use a userscript just tell me on my profile xD:
I used jokebookservice1 (go and follow him!)'s script (that made all unread messages lightgray) to make this, so credit to him

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Highlight New Notifications
// @version      0.1
// @description  Highlights new notifications in the updated /messages page on Scratch
// @author       jokebookservice1, packersrulegopack 
// @match        https://scratch.mit.edu/messages/
// ==/UserScript==
/*Also thanks to JokeBookService he created the majority of this program, I just edited the css to make stuff look better and added the "messages are to big problem. */
let css = document.createElement("STYLE");
css.appendChild(document.createTextNode(".mod-unread{background-color: #F7F7B2;font-size:14px;}.mod-comment{font-size:14px;}.comment-message-info{font-size:14px;}.comment-text{padding:6px;}.comment-message-info-img{width:37px;height:37px;}"));
document.body.appendChild(css);

I like the new messaging system! My only issue is that since I read abnormally fast, it takes even longer for the messages to stop appearing. But otherwise good!

btw, please message me on my profile, if you have any suggestions on it.

Hehe, that happens to me too! Except I don't read too fast, and the people above say so too, so I think it's a glitch.

I love this idea!! I went to my messages before this forum had been posted and I saw the changes and I was like “Wow!” I am now easily able to sort through my messages and the layout is much better then it used to be!!

If you don't want the extra changes that PackersRuleGoPack added to my userscript, and only want to make the messages lightgrey, then you may want to use the original I made, which is below.

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Highlight New Notifications
// @version      0.1
// @description  Highlights new notifications in the updated /messages page on Scratch
// @author       jokebookservice1
// @match        https://scratch.mit.edu/messages/
// ==/UserScript==
let css = document.createElement("STYLE");css.appendChild(document.createTextNode(".mod-unread{background-color: #e0d9d9;}"));document.body.appendChild(css);

The message symbol (favourite, love it, follow, comment) shows up as a bright colour if it is new and goes slightly duller when read. Hope this helps!

it looks amazing, I wonder when they are doing the same for “My Stuff”

Hey everyone,

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.

Cheers,
Speak
where do have scratch on the phone?

Eh I don't love the new layout. But it's good that the social actions are stored more efficiently.

I like this update, but even after I check my messages, it says I still have a message. I'll check it and I don't, so it's really hard to tell when I have a message and when I don't. Is this a glitch or is this happening to everyone? Thanks!
I was talking to someone complaining about it glitching, and telling them that it was nothing wrong. Three times in the past couple hours have I got a ‘fake notification’ from that conversation. Woohoo, irony!

Anyway, I love the new system : D Can't wait for Scratch 3.0

Lol, I'll just tell you how to use the messages userscript here:

Get this extension:
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo?hl=en (Thats for chrome users, any other browser just search up tamper monkey and get it)

Once it installs click this:

And then copy paste this:

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Highlight New Notifications
// @version      0.1
// @description  Highlights new notifications in the updated /messages page on Scratch
// @author       jokebookservice1, packersrulegopack 
// @match        https://scratch.mit.edu/messages/
// ==/UserScript==
/*Also thanks to JokeBookService he created the majority of this program, I just edited the css to make stuff look better and added the "messages are to big problem. */
let css = document.createElement("STYLE");
css.appendChild(document.createTextNode(".mod-unread{background-color: #F7F7B2;font-size:14px;}.mod-comment{font-size:14px;}.comment-message-info{font-size:14px;}.comment-text{padding:6px;}.comment-message-info-img{width:37px;height:37px;}"));
document.body.appendChild(css);
And then click “save”:


Then close the tab and open up scratch!
Great!

Awesome! One question, how does one view their alerts?

Here's a post that Speakvisually made about that:

Thanks for the question about alerts :] We currently are hiding all past alerts. If you receive a new alert, it will show up in your news feed. You can then dismiss that alert forever.

We may slightly change this in the coming weeks or months.
