Updates to Messages Page

It's a nice change. The only minor gripe I have about it is that you can no longer see your alerts apparently, and that after you see it once, it's gone forever. This is not the best change and I hope it is changed in the future.

Also, it is quite buggy, but that's expected with a new change. Though with the new fast method of all the messages appearing faster, it appears this has also unintentionally changed the message count on the Messages page, the Tips page, and the About page to update less quickly, and also has made it so that spamming the love-it or favourite buttons on a project will make every individual love and favourite appear in your messages; even when you don't refresh.

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
OMG LOL! I noticed! Meep morp. wuuuuuuuuuu XD

Honestly, I believe that the message system update is great, the only thing I have a concern with is that I would like to see what my new messages are between the old messages.

I looooove the new messages update. I would like if you could enable several filters at once though… And there should be a follows filter.

This is a really nice update, despite just being a redesign of messages.

Updates to Messages Page

Hi!! I'd like to state my opinions on the new message format.

It helps organise different parts if messages and it looks really neat. I also love how you can see the full comment and the profile picture. I really like it and think it is a nice update and is better than the old one.

But, I have some problems with it:
1: It takes to long to load. I have average internet and it really annoys me when I'm waiting that long. It also lags more.
2: The old message system highlighted the unread messages making it really obvious to see what messages you have not read. The current message system shows it, but it is not as obvious. It makes it a lot harder to see. Also, It makes it harder to read the messages when you fit less in more space.
3: The new message system seems flat in a way. I'm not sure how to explain this, but it is hard to use.

These are just opinions. Nobody reading this has to make a big deal. I prefer the new message system in some ways and the old one in some others. I think they are both good, but the new message layout has some flaws.
