Updates to Messages Page

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

i hope nobody rants about this like they did about the discuss button. you guys worked 3 hours on this change, and you sure worked hard on this update! though it may take time to getting used to, it will be okay! i am the side account of frances2005.

Hello, this is the side account of Frances2005. My main OC on this account is V2, so that is why the color scheme is different.
On this account, I'll roleplay as my new OC, I'll share projects of V2 and more! (Don't worry, the color scheme is always green red and blue on my other account!)
I'll also share concepts, and share other stuff like I would with my main account!

and i am turtieturtle.
i wanted to add that people shouldn't rant on this, because it was a good thing it was added. are the alerts going to be mixed in with the messages? because i think the alerts should have a different column for that.
a glitch i noticed was that when you went to messages, a notification for messages pops up in the mail icon, but when you click it, there is no new messages.

There's no need to quote the OP, first of all.

And second: Cool. Can't wait for the suggestions forum to be flooded with #bringitback. Again.

I like the fact that it works on mobile but at first it's confusing to see which one's are new and which one's aren't.
Another thing: although I didn't used to like the studio activity message that you got at midnight everyday, I realised how much I actually needed it because it's gone now. It's literally the perfect example of the song: Let Her Go.

Sadly, it's too late. A studio was already made.

There is nothing here. Well, besides some words and this thing I am working on that is based on You Don't Know Jack.

Hey, the link to this topic on the FP news is broken there's two slashes at the end of the URL.

Anyway, this update is awesome! I love being able to sort my messages

I really like this update! But there is no way to tell if it is an old message or new, so maybe you could add some sort of symbol to feature the fact that it is a new message?

Anyway, great update! It looks much better.

Edit: However, I'd like it if you could see which messages are old ones and which are new ones.
