Updates to Messages Page

It's a very easy-to-read design and fits with the rest of the newly-designed webpage; must have taken the Scratch Team ages! However, there is one bug, which is that when I visit my messages page and check my messages it will still say I have new messages next time I visit the page. I'm sure this is temporary and will be fixed soon. In the meantime, good luck updating the rest of the site!

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

Cool! I've always thought that the messages page needed a makeover, and this did it perfectly!

Sorry to say, but I honestly don't really like the new setup. Can you make an option for scratchers to switch between the different setups? I really miss the old one. I'm just super, SUPER sensitive to even the slightest change. I had a bit of a fit when I saw the new setup. Please make an option to switch between the different setups, I'm really upset and uncomfortable with the new one.

I was but I got used to it over time… the old messages made me more stressed, it’s like a fresh start…

(this is random but, does anyone know what projects will look like in 3.0? Like this?
Oh my… I MADE THAT IMAGE?)

Great update! Love the new interface, and I can finally sort through types of comments because I have so much studio activity

yes… although I’ll probably never use Scratch on my iPad because the layout is weird…

I like this new update, though just like anything else, it will take some time to get used to. Though I wanted to thank the Scratch Team for this new update, because for me It is easier to check my messages!!

The update looks great! I suppose it'll be a bit jarring to look at for a while but everyone will probably get used to it. And if people do complain, eh, let them complain. Scratch isn't a democracy, and they're not the site devs. xD
But yeah, my “new message” notification is sticking around for longer than usual. I hope they fix that soon.

By viewing the page source, I found the following URL:
https://api.scratch.mit.edu/users/:username:/messages?limit=:limit:&offset=:offset:
It returned a 401 unauthorized error.
Will this ever become public with out an auth token?

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.

It's not too hard, the ones with dark blue message bubbles are new! The light blue ones aren't.

something was here and now it's not

Exactly, I want the alerts back. Sometimes I also go into the Messages and the number doesn't go away.
