Updates! 15 October: More optimizations

Greetings all!

Here are this weeks' updates:
- Cleaned up queries on the Explore page. It should now be faster, especially the month-gallery view.
- Changes to the way icon images get resized, to ease strain on one of our servers.
- Cloud data: Cloud data now works in embedded projects. However, you need to be logged in to the Scratch site to have it work.
- New statistics page: http://scratch.mit.edu/statistics/
- Featured project on profile page is now an image with a link to the project, instead of a small project player. This saves resources, and makes the profile page faster to load.

Scratch On!

Sweet! But that's too bad about the featured project thing.

Don't worry - our plan, once we have time, is to bring it back as a dialog box. i.e. When you click the featured project, instead of going to the project page, it'll pop up a (regular project player sized) box and start playing the project immediately. It's just that that requires a few other changes first.

Well, that's a bit of a problem for pop-up blocking Scratchers…You could put it as an option to display image or project.

Not a real popup, just a pretend one, like an overlay dialog.

This is awesome!
I have a few suggestions about cloud vars (and HTML requests) but I guess you are still busy doing allot of mega things :3

Wow, time flies by so fast. It seems like just yesterday Scratch was on its 3 millionth.

I actually think that featured project change is pretty good. Sometimes I have a few projects open at once, then I open up someones profile page, but their featured project takes up a lot of space. That makes my computer lag, and sometimes flash crashes. This is a nice change IMO.

On another note - based on the new statistics page (which is awesome ) - we are REALLY close to 4,000,000! Are we going to create another SDS for that or something?

Awesome! Specially the featured project thing. Now the profile pages are prettier on mobile devices.

COOL!

Isn't technology the best? Along with video games, of course.

What's an embedded project? I'm guessing for now an unshared project
