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 love this
One step closer to Scratch 3.

OK, this is getting really annoying. That number will just NOT go away. I keep checking my messages, and do you know what? Do you know what!?!? That message I got 1000 times about someone having a profile picture from Google on my first Sparta Remix keeps getting highlighted and it wasn't even replied to me! You must to fix it.FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT FIX IT (x10⁹ ʸᵒᶜᵗᶦˡˡᶦᵒⁿ)

UPDATE: Finally it stopped. But it's probably only because I got another message! I'm sick of my Sparta Remix - I keep getting messages about it.

Mamma Mia! You're too slow! Poyo! Kamehameha! I can't draw World 4 with just a bag of sand, so bring that back when you're done, okay? Now you're thinking with shifting :P Hold on, my little Smurfs! I'll…strangle-angle you!!! Vee vill vipe out all of the childrrrren vith vun strrrroke! I like trains. We don't HAVE to capture Leafy, do we? No! It is all wrong. My plan was PERFECT! Excuse me sir…may I enquire how an armless figure such as myself would be able to climb up the top of that pole? Katsuma is our only hope! If you can capture the Toppat Clan…you'll be a free man. Scratch on! Tac Nayn a loser! You can't buy happiness…unless sushi makes you happy. Hey Apple! Apple! Hey Apple! Hey! Guess what? Knife! Just load Unreal Tournament already! My ROFLcopter goes SOI SOI SOI SOI I'm filled with DETERMINATION. You ended my friends. Now I will end you. If I want to protect my home, I'm going to have to do it myself. The bigger the crime, the better the time…! You should not have done this. Help me…I don't want to die…I'm scared Wow. Great job. ……Please try and do worse though I need to ######

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.

You still do get studio activity

Well, don't get me wrong, the new update is beautiful,
but its kinda hard to see what I have replied to and what I have not, and I always use the back arrow (I use google) to go back to my messages but now when I do that, it goes all the way back to the top and I have to scroll all the way down.

that's really cool what you added to the messages page. I just checked it out myself. I love how it shows a little bubble when someone sends a message. I think its really cool.

Seems good to me, although I can't find the alerts and it seems to be much less clear now which have been read.

There is a way to tell tho, the icon on the far left will be darker so y'all will stop asking

Also, I don't especially like how massive and spaced out everything is, I can only see like five notifications on the screen when I first open the page.

And one more thing, it is kind of hard to see which have been read as I said before, I think it would be much clearer if you went back to coloring the entire message box.

Call me Toad, my dude.

I don't get why people keep asking about the way to see the difference between unread messages, and how everything is massive and spaced out.

That's cool, I sorta like it.
Takes a little long time getting used to, though…

Something I really want in Scratch is… Onion Skins! I don't literally mean onion skins, but animators would find this very useful as you will be able to animate more efficiently and easier. If you don't know what onion skins are, they are just the frame(s) before your current frame in a slight ghost effect so you will be able to compare frames. And what I would really love is to delete shapes or anything in vector, cuz I'm not sure if there is a way.

So please, please please recommend this update because this would help everyone!

I like the messages page, but it'll take a bit to get used to, but the messages sometimes glitch and say I have a new message when I don't even when I don't use the back arrow.
