New responsive Activity page

Update 2 - December 8, 2021: We’ve shipped a bunch of refinements over the last 24 hours or so. We’re going through the bugs and design requests and marking them with the proper tags. There’s a lot here, so it’ll take us a minute. We’ve done the following to address your design feedback in the near term:

1. Switched to the smaller version of questions / answers from the Profile page, thus changing the font size.
2. Reduced the padding on individual items while maintaining this newer aesthetic.
3. Grouped questions, answers, tags, and reputation as columns again.
4. Upstreamed a smaller font size to our design system’s post summary component.
5. Various smaller visual refinements.

Update 1 - December 7, 2021: This was rolled out on Stack Overflow and all Stack Exchange network sites.

After receiving and incorporating feedback the community (thank you!) we’ve launched the responsive Activity page! The most common feedback we received was that we’re straying too far from a summary for the summary view. This feedback was not only valuable but also correct!

We reconsidered the value of information shown on post summaries and condensed them significantly from our initial redesign. We also made tons of little tweaks and fixes along the way. We’ll be triaging bug reports as they come and we know there’s still room for improvements, so suggestions are welcomed and encouraged! Thank you in advance!

Original post - November 19, 2021:

In our continued effort to deprecate our mobile views, we’ve turned our attention to the Activity page. We’re planning on shipping the changes next week sometime soon and wanted to show it off first.

Check out this 5 minute tour of the Activity page and let us know what you think. The feedback we’ve received so far has been invaluable, not only in identifying bugs, but also in helping us reflect and be thoughtful about the changes we’re making.

What’s new?

The navigation includes all the same items but is now placed vertically to the left of the column of sections to fix moments like this. It’ll allow us to add more functionality in the future without breaking the layout or introducing any wrapping.

Two columns become one

The most obvious change might be the switch to a single column for Activity sections. All of the same (and a little additional) information is here, but now it’s within a single column that squishes comfortably all sorts of browser widths.

Post summaries

We’ve switched post summaries to use the post summary component in our design system. In the process, we’ve added more details about each post such as views, answer counts, tags, and an answer excerpt on answers. This component has been designed to be responsive and show information in a compact but digestible format.

Summary stays on “Summary”

Quick reference information will only be shown on the Summary page (which is the base Activity page). It made sense to show “Summary” on Summary and to not show it elsewhere. Less stuff to scroll past to get to the stuff you want to on other Activity pages.

A handful of other changes

In this process, a lot of little things were tweaked and polished. This includes empty states, improvements to the reputation changes view, accessibility improvements, and much more. No functionality has been lost so if you find anything broken, missing, or out of place, please let us know. We appreciate it!

• Somehow I missed this thread entirely until just now. With features like flexbox and grid solidly supported for a few years now, can you speak to why desktop users are forced into this one column layout now? It probably works great for mobile users, but it's a clear and huge regression for people with bigger screens, like laptop and desktop users. I mean, here is a comparison (granted, MSE vs SO, but still): i.stack.imgur.com/QNRcM.png On the old layout, I can see 6 full sections. On the new layout, I can see... 1 section and a little bit extra. Dec 7, 2021 at 19:29
• In addition to the tablet optimized size of objects which alone makes this a horrible experience, most of the summaries are now presented to the right on my desktop screen instead of in the middle. Why? Dec 7, 2021 at 22:18
• I use the all actions view to look at the comments I've made so I can check questions that interested me and see if there was a resolution. This new view is much less usable for me than the old one. Everything is way too tall. Why does the time need it's own line? Put that next to the type of action. The votes view is also full of wasted space. I don't see a way to see individual flags I've raised either, just the number of helpful. Not a fan of this new layout. Dec 8, 2021 at 2:22
• Man, I read this whole thread several times a few weeks back, and somehow it had never dawned on me that any of this would affect me on desktop. It was framed as improving something about mobile users, so I didn't worry about it too much. Now that it's been deployed to SO...yeah, I hate it. It feels big and clunky and mobile-like, even though I'm on a 4K monitor. So much less information :/ Dec 8, 2021 at 5:38
• The fonts, size, proportions, positions gives much strain on eyes. Is there any way to bring it back to normal? atleast to someone who opts to? Dec 8, 2021 at 6:00
• What is responsive on a page with the whole content in one column? WIde screen, narrow screen - all looks the same. The same unusable. Dec 8, 2021 at 6:53
• Late for the party, but I'll explain my downvote: you made awesome work with the view for mobiles and small screens, but in the process made it appear way worse than before on PC with big screen, which is what I happen to use. Enormous amounts of whitespace, and overall feeling it's a page designed only for mobile. Dec 8, 2021 at 10:06
• Everything is way too big, when I open a profile page I practically see nothing of interest to me because everything is big enough to read it from across the room, but nothing is really shown! This doesn't make anything more clear or less cluttered, it just adds to scroll wheel wear! (this is on a 1600x900 14" screen) Dec 8, 2021 at 10:34
• I downvoted because: (1) The new design is, at first glance at least, terrible: vastly less information per unit area, to no apparent benefit. (2) The oblivious disconnect in tone between "We implemented this awesome new feature we're sure you'll love, isn't it great?" versus the nearly unanimous actual feedback the feature is receiving. Dec 8, 2021 at 12:33
• This design is perfect... for vertically oriented screens around 3 inches wide. The problem is the bulk of use on this site isn't on mobile devices, it's on desktop. People are asking questions and seeking help while coding. The old design was far better on desktop screens - this one takes up too much space, uses too large of fonts, and requires a lot of horizontal eye tracking and vertical scroll to read anything - not to mention much of what was on the page is lost, like seeing more than 5 tags or accounts. Dec 8, 2021 at 19:43
• Like others said, this is a major turn off. Horizontal goes vertical? But I am using a 16:9 screen. Exclusively. Horizontal is a desirable. And I thought responsive means roughly the same is easily configurable by the user. Dec 8, 2021 at 20:21
• As someone who typically spends hours a day in stackoverflow and a lot of time watching activity in my reputation page (609k reputation), the newest changes are way less usable. I work on a 36" screen and it feels like there's only about 1/3 the amount of information on my screen now and things always start out collapsed, causing more clicks to see less information. This is a worse UI in all regards on the desktop with a decent size screen than what we had before - please put it back. I actually thought some setting must have been accidentally changed, but no, I'm stuck with this. Dec 8, 2021 at 22:03
• When this plan was first announced why was it not PROMINENTLY explained that it applies also to users others than those on mobile devices? I'm sure you would have gotten most of today's feedback in due time that way rather than having to face today's critical sh*#¤%storm. I feel bad about airing my displeasure in a non-constructive way, but I cannot help it. This update is simply awful on my laptop. Even before the update there was too much whitespace on the sides, and now it is much worse. Dec 8, 2021 at 22:24
• I have changed my upvote to a downvote. Initially, it looked like you were going to provide improvements, but after it went live and I saw how bad it looked like I change my vote. I think the majority agrees that more whitespace is a bad thing. We want to see as much information as quickly as possible. We don't want to scroll or press secondary buttons to load more content. Dec 9, 2021 at 13:03
• After years being on SO, I joined Meta SE today to request: please rollback. Please. I had no complaints about the old layout. While the new design looks nice, it's difficult to use. Great on phones, but consider, how many people are coding on their phones? So again, please rollback. Please. Thank you. Dec 9, 2021 at 22:26

The badge icon is out of place on the "next badge" progress.

Image from my Code Review account.

• The right part of the block is not filled also. Better visible when light mode is on. Dec 15, 2021 at 18:24
• @αλεχολυτ The right part of which block? Dec 15, 2021 at 22:43
• @αλεχολυτ Are you talking about the missing part of the progress bar? I don't think the right part is meant to be filled so we can 'visually' see how close we are to getting the badge. Dec 15, 2021 at 22:47
• Shame on me... It's a progress bar. I completely forgot about this. Dec 16, 2021 at 6:31

Can we please have a way to see votes on recent questions in the summary tab?

It's much more convenient to get an overview of activity on our recent questions.

• I came here to say this. I can order my questions by votes, but I don't get to see how many votes each question has. Dec 8, 2021 at 7:06
• I believe this was addressed in recent design refinements. Dec 9, 2021 at 2:03
• @AaronShekey The Answers section indicates whether the question has an accepted answer, not whether the user's answer is actually accepted. Dec 9, 2021 at 8:25

There's something wrong with the 'Follow post' functionality, even after the fix. Staff can check my followed posts on RPG.SE; on the Summary tab there's just one question:

while the Following tab has four posts:

Initial version

The 'Follow post' functionality is FUBAR. The list on the Summary tab is not showing entries which are shown on the Following tab, and unfollowing posts from the 'Following' tab doesn't work; the button text updates from 'Unfollow' to 'Follow' but the entry is still there when I reload the page.

I then tried to unfollow it from the Summary tab. That works, at least when I refresh the page, it's gone, but I can still see it on the 'Following' tab. When I went to the question itself, the link said 'Follow', and now that I clicked that, I'm following it twice (note the lack of body for the bottom entry):

• Is this fixed? I click Unfollow and it updates the text, but the entry is still there when I reload. Additionally, it still says "Following" on the post.

• @DanCormier I fear it's still broken, please see my update. I haven't tried (yet) what user17242583 describes.

Dec 11, 2021 at 7:50
• I think I faced this issue when preparing for a bug report. Apparently, deleted followed posts are not shown on the "Summary" page (as a non-mod user, not sure for 10k-ers?), but shown on the "Following" page? Dec 12, 2021 at 4:38
• Regarding "following twice", based on my bug report, only followed answers are showing the question body, while the question itself doesn't show anything. So you might be following a different post altogether. Dec 12, 2021 at 4:40
• And I think I repro'd the "Unfollow" bug: seems currently it's only working for the questions, not answers. // cc: @user17242583 Dec 12, 2021 at 4:46
• Needing multiple clicks to unfollow is also an unreasonable extra step. It used to be a single button only Dec 17, 2021 at 0:17

On the reputation page:

Downvotes are supposed to be red, not green!

• In fact, any negative reputation change are now shown as green on that page. Dec 7, 2021 at 22:30

Negative reputation changes show as "+-[x]" instead of as "-[x]"

If I incurred a negative reputation change from a post, that used to only show as "-[x]" in my reputation log. However, it's now showing as "+-[x]".

I think the system is pulling in the negative number from the change and putting a plus sign in front of it regardless.

In the Profile / Reputation when fully expanded "pretty" word is used instead of expected space:

The only useful link in the review history is tiny

Now that this issue is fixed, the only part of the review history item that anyone would ever want to click on is a tiny link in the upper left (that doesn't even look like a link.

Compare the sizes of the click targets:

I can't see why anyone would ever want to go to the post that a review item is for, so the relative size of the click targets here doesn't really make sense. Ideally, the entire thing (or at least most of the space) should link to the review item, since the review item itself also links to the post.

My use case for this page is clicking a large number of these open into new tabs in order to write up flags for reviewers who are reviewing incorrectly (examples). The fact that they are so much bulkier (requiring more scrolling and keeping my place in a long list) and the only useful click target is now smaller makes an already thankless and tedious task even more tedious.

• The layout has now been rearranged, but this issue persists. Dec 9, 2021 at 0:27

Answer text shows HTML escapes such as &quot;, &gt;, etc.

MathJax wraps awkwardly on the activity page

On math.se, certain titles involving MathJax get wrapped strangely on the new activity page. Here's a screenshot from the comments section of my activity page to demonstrate what I meant:

These MathJax expressions shouldn't take up three or more lines by themselves.

Reproduction details: screenshot produced on Chrome 96.0.4664.45 running on Windows 10.

• Seems to be the same bug as MathJax text broken along several lines in post titles (in review queues). No repro on Firefox Nightly 96.0a1. Dec 7, 2021 at 21:16
• I can reproduce the problem with Safari on macOS. Dec 7, 2021 at 21:19
• I have also seen the same problem with Microsoft Edge 93.0.961.38 on 64-bit Windows 10. Dec 8, 2021 at 13:12
• FYI, basically the same issue is also reported in this answer to another post. Jan 26 at 0:10

And those 2 gear icons look misaligned.

Bonus: the tooltip exceeds its bubble.

And this doesn't look good, either.

• Also: 1. Hovering over another item doesn't move the highlighting to it; 2. Clicking outside of this menu doesn't close it. Dec 8, 2021 at 11:50

I'm not seeing any vote counts in the "questions" and "answers" section, just "votes" without any number in front of it. Here's a screenshot from my question section:

(OS: Win 10, Browser: Firefox 94.0.2 (64-bit))

When I go to my Reputation / Post page to show my recent reputation changes by posting, no posts are displayed:

Instead, an enormous amount of whitespace is displayed, with some numbers and dates. Before, I would also see posts with recent votes. Now I must click, and click, and click some more to see what posts got voted up or down. Before, the page showed the information that I needed and expected. Now, it shows whitespace, and not much else. Maybe appropriate on a phone, but I'm not writing answers on a phone. Given my history of tendonitis and RSI injuries, this added burden of multiple picks is painful both literally and metaphorically.

The same problem exists on the Reputation / Time page, though perhaps that's defensible since it does at least show dates (but not times):

If the design is supposed to be responsive, why not adapt to the larger screen space that desktop users have, rather than making us click and click and click some more to get information that was previously available at a glance?

Please try to reduce the burden of screen picks so that it's no worse than before.

(Not sure if this is a bug or feature request or what. In the fields where I've worked, increasing the number of picks required of users without strong justification would be a considered a regression.)

• Related: reports by KRyan, and user17242583. Dec 8, 2021 at 7:40
• @SebastianSimon - right, thanks. I was just trying to state my difficulty with the new UI in the most objective way possible. Hence, "No posts shown on the post reputation page, multiple clicks required to see the information that was displayed by default before" rather than "lots of space wasted."

I'm not sure exactly what these green bars are meant to represent on the ?tab=topactivity/?tab=summary tabs:

This looks like it's meant to preview what the Graph portion of the Reputation page does, but without any timestamps/labels, these green bars don't really indicate much of anything. It feels like the preview is too zoomed-in or the flex--item w100 class divs are cut off in some fashion.

Could you clarify if this is a bug?

• It's not a bug in the code, but it is a design bug in the sense that it's unclear what this is. This is a reputation change graph (which I think could for sure be made more obvious). Thanks for reporting!

• This is the same charting we've done before, but it's a little weird that there's no labeling at all. The style on this has been refined a bit since you've called this out. I'm marking this one as completed but we may want to use a tooltip yet. Dec 9, 2021 at 1:51
• That -2 should now be red as expected. Dec 9, 2021 at 23:24
• I'm red-green colorblind so I didn't really even notice before until Random Person pointed it out. That said, looks good @AaronShekey ! Thanks-much! Dec 10, 2021 at 0:10

The answers section in the summary shows all answers as being accepted even if they're not.

There's something wrong with the 'track your next tag badge' functionality. The popup shows but the list is empty for the 'Available' tab:

and, as @Werner notes, the other tabs show regular badges, not tag badges:

• Related... trying to change the "Next tag badge" to track displays "normal badges", not tag badges in the "Available" tab. Dec 8, 2021 at 1:32
• Dec 8, 2021 at 1:51
• @DanCormier I can still reproduce the first part here on Meta.SE (FWIW not on Apple.SE). Also, on all sites, the second part is still a problem. It's simply not possible to track another tag badge ... Also reported here by user Rick.

Dec 8, 2021 at 18:27
• I believe this was an issue from before the recent changes to Activity. On @Glorfindel's Activity page, could this be happening because they've earned all available tag badges?

This is how the title is displayed in landscape:

It looks mostly good except some users (example) on mobile have this mess in their profile, (plus the popups expand right, creating a scroll bar):

(There are a variety of privileges that trigger this.)

I think it's great to have responsive profile and activity pages! But I wish you would prioritize the pages that currently just don't work at all on a small screen. Please don't see this as a negative comment, I'm very appreciative of the effort you guys put into the platform.

1. When there's an edit suggestion for a question, clicking on the "Edit" link brings up a dialog box to review the edit. This box stretches outside of the screen, there is no way to scroll to see the left portion of this box.

2. When editing the list of duplicates of a closed question, it is again a dialog box that stretches outside of the screen. This time it is impossible to reach any of the buttons on this dialog box.

I need to disable responsiveness to do either of these activities on my phone. With a non-responsive page, I can at least zoom and scroll my way around to accomplish these tasks. But of course it's a frustrating experience.

• We feel your pain! Our goal has been to start 2022 with each view responsive and all mobile views deprecated. We've prioritized that work mostly from least to most impactful so we can refine our approach along views that see less traffic. We're nearing the end of that process and finally getting to views like the Q&A page. In 2022, we plan to refine the design and interaction further so issues like you noted should be fixed in the somewhat near future. We know it's frustrating to deal with these UI issues and thank you for being patient!

In some tabs (e.g. Revisions and responses) the timestamp is almost isolated far on the right. While this makes sense in some Q&A tabs because it aligns with the tags it could make more sense in other tabs to group it at the top with the other info. This would make the view more compact and allow for better use of vertical space by removing an almost empty line.

On the "revisions" page each revision starts with "revised". Why is that necessary? Isn't that a little bit obvious, since you know, this is on the "revisions" page?

Previously, when you tried to expand revisions too quickly, you got annoying red popup telling you to wait because of the rate limit. It has been super annoying and I am glad it's gone. Now when you open them too fast, the content just says "Request failed". It's not very informative and it looks like this is the actual content of the edit.

• Similarly, every item on the "Reviews" page says "reviewed"...I'd hoped it might at least say "Review audit passed" on audits, but it doesn't. Also, every comment says "comment". Dec 8, 2021 at 8:21
• This was okay back when it didn't take up vertical space, but now that it does...it really shouldn't. Dec 8, 2021 at 8:23
• Also the labels for Accepts, Badges, Suggestions are redundant. The only two tabs where the label is useful are All and Posts, because these actually can contain different types of items. Dec 10, 2021 at 10:14

Changes from votes that don't affect reputation (capped votes, community wiki votes) no longer show in the reputation history

It seems that reputation changes from votes that did not affect your reputation (votes you received after hitting the daily reputation cap as well as all votes from community wiki posts) aren't shown in the Reputation tab anymore.

This was the only way to know when others voted on our own community wiki posts, as these changes didn't show up anywhere else. Now, it's no longer possible to see a history of when people voted on all of our own community wiki posts.

Also, entries of votes that didn't count toward our reputation because it hit the cap don't show in the log anymore either. I still found these useful, because it let us know that we were receiving votes and why or why not some votes counted and not others. Having these entries visible made it a lot easier to distill info and give answers to users asking meta questions with screenshots of their history.

It also made it easier to track persistent cases of serial voting when one had already reached the cap or was close to reaching it: if one receives serial upvotes and has already hit or was close to hitting the cap, only a small amount (or none) of the votes will be shown, making it confusing why the voting was reversed, and harder to report those cases which weren't auto-reversed.

The /reputation audit page shows capped votes that didn't count toward rep, but doesn't show voting on community wiki posts. This page is unlinked, though, and I don't want to have to repeatedly go there to see if all my rep is legitimately gained.

• I have an upvote for a CW answer showing on my rep page. Dec 8, 2021 at 0:07
• Maybe this is already fixed, but this works for me (here are some upvotes past the daily cap). Dec 8, 2021 at 7:03
• @RyanM Ah, it seems to have been fixed. I earned some capped votes that weren't showing at the time I posted this, but are now showing. Dec 8, 2021 at 7:25
• It also looks fixed on my end as well, will appreciate more feedback from others!
– Vanny StaffMod
Dec 8, 2021 at 17:58
• It might well be fixed here but I suspect not on the answers section - e,g, on my Ask Different top voted - the answers section shows 152 but the actual question shows 179 Dec 8, 2021 at 23:20
• But then on my top SuperUser answer - which was capped - the answers section shows 145 and the question 68 and what the second answer is doing who knows - it shows as 214 votes but is sorted below the 145 votes Dec 8, 2021 at 23:23

In the reputation history, do we really need to duplicate the date in the entries themselves? I feel like some vertical space can be saved here.

Sorting Questions by Views no longer actually shows the views for each question.

This is a big regression and hurts the usability of the sort-by-views feature.

• Already kind of mentioned by Dharman. Dec 8, 2021 at 6:19
• @aaron-shekey are you saying this has shipped in the recent fixes by marking status-completed? It's not fixed... Dec 9, 2021 at 3:50
• @pkamb That's the idea, yeah. Thought I'd fixed this in the last ship! Dec 9, 2021 at 16:29
• So I just reverted locally to prior to our changes. Sorting by votes, views, activity, and newest only ever showed the question's score. Those numbers never changed, so I don't believe this is a regression. I've changed it to show the question's score to be consistent with the original behavior. ✌️ Dec 10, 2021 at 16:15
• @AaronShekey can you post a picture of the old version sorted by views? Dec 10, 2021 at 16:18
• @pkamb The numbers of the top viewed and top voted questions are consistent i.stack.imgur.com/TmFCK.png Dec 10, 2021 at 16:29

When I click the gear to track a different badge, the layout changes from 2 columns to one column, moving the "next badge" block under "newest" for a moment.

UPDATE

And now is even worse, the medal is quite outside of its border:

• @vanny also reproed here, and reported, which will now be deleted: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/372049/… Dec 9, 2021 at 8:55
• @Vanny it could be that it only happen on specific badges - Enlightened and Sportsmanship are both pretty long single word badge names, causing the elements to not fit on a single line properly and wrap. Dec 13, 2021 at 16:31
• @Andrew it happens with pretty much every badge with an xx/xx counter. With Research assistant and Legendary the layout stays on 2 columns, but the button moves up a bit when trying to change the badge to track. It doesn't happen if the badge have no counter, like Altruist and Benefactor. Dec 13, 2021 at 16:56

Adding this as the goal was to have a responsive design.

The select next tag badge/select next badge modal is not responsive on smaller screens. I can only select the badges from middle column. I suggest at least having a horizontal scroll here if not able to make it selectable on mobile devices.

Attempting to expand reputation history entries for specific posts expands the wrong one, or outright fails

When I try to expand the entries for specific posts on a given day (e.g. to see when the votes took place and how many downvotes there are), it either expands the top one always, or outright doesn't expand.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Scroll to December 7, 2021 (if that date has passed) and expand that date entry.

2. Expand the second or lower entry in that list. It will get stuck with a loading bubble that always appears right below the first entry:

3. Refresh the page. Expand the December 7 entry again.

4. Expand and collapse the top entry. It works fine.

5. Attempt to expand the second or any below entry. The top one will be expanded even though you clicked on a different one:

Notice that the entry you clicked on will have its arrow show as expanded, and not the first one. Clicking the circled arrow to collapse will collapse the top one.

Tested with all user scripts disabled.

• @Dan I can still reproduce this. Note that this is about the inner expandable sections, i.e. when expanding a specific day, then expanding the details for a post (the arrow below “n events”). Toggling any of those that isn’t the first one is buggy. Dec 8, 2021 at 15:47
• Thanks for the clarification. I was able to reproduce it and have a fix in the works.

The Answers tab has a wider table than the rest of the tabs:

That table is also not responsive to horizontal scaling (up to a point).

• That's a weird issue @Werner! I'm unable to reproduce this issue. Here's what I see when I try: drive.google.com/… Can you check again and see if it's still happening?

• @DanCormier: Still happening; I'm using an up-to-date Chrome (96.0.4664.93). It doesn't show up in Firefox though. Dec 8, 2021 at 0:14
• I checked in Chrome and can reproduce the issue (I originally checked in Firefox)! This issue is due to lack of formatting on long strings in answer excerpts. We have a fix that should ship tomorrow. Thanks for reporting and working to narrow the issue down!
