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?

Horizontal navigation turns vertical

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.

horizontal navigation on the activity page

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.

new post summary component in wide browser window new post summary component in mobile-width browser window

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.

    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?

    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

    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)

    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.

    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
  • 40
    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.

    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
  • 37
    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.

    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.

    @vitaliis I agree with your post on only having 1 cog (although I only figured out it had a double functionality when I was nearing my first tag badge). There was in fact a post before this one also mentioning the cog, but in that case it was about one of the dialogues not working. So the issues with the cog are proving to require several posts to address.

In the All actions section, only two lines of a comment are visible. On my phone screen, at my default font size, that works out to around 110 characters, with no way of revealing the full comment on the Activity page. This makes it very tedious to search comments. Eg,

Please consider adding a button to display the full comment contents. Note that you could save a line by moving the comment time/date to the top line...

Followed answers are shown as their question instead

On the "Summary" and "Following" pages, followed answers are showing their question instead, including the post icon, the post body, the accepted status, and the stats.

Example: When following a question and 2 of its answers, this is how it looks on the "Summary" page:

  • The icon for the answers is shown as "Q" instead of "A"

  • Both answers have their accepted status, while only 1 is truly accepted

And this is how it looks on the "Following" page:

  • The icon for the answers is shown as "Q" instead of "A"

  • The question doesn't show the post body, while the answers show the question's body

  • The stats like the number of the answers, the total score votes(?), and the number of bookmarks are using the question. (Views stats is an exception since there's no explicit view counter for each answer, and thus it's by design to use the question's view implicitly)


Fixed as of current writing:

  • Followed answers are now showing "A" icon and their post body, score, and acceptance status.
  • Followed questions are now showing "Q" icon and their post body, score, views, total number of answers, and whether an answer is accepted.

Bookmarks of deleted questions should display with a pink background.

Apparently followed posts do display correctly according to zcoop98.

My profile has a bookmark of a deleted question that's visible if you sort by newest. You'd need to be a moderator or have > 10K rep to see this particular bookmark.

    For me, it's not working. Either in bookmarks or followed posts, deleted posts don't have a pink background, they are displayed the same way as non deleted posts. I'm using Chrome in iOS 15.1 - should I open another bug report or can this be un-status-completed?

    In order to ship this before a holiday code freeze, we're planning on shipping the Activity page this week.

For what it's worth, we've incorporated much of the feedback in the replies to this post and we'll be relying on the community to find the edge cases we haven't fully considered and any opportunities to improve the interface.

No functionality has been lost

Pedantically speaking, that's not quite true.

There used to be a hidden way to get to a user's network profile even if that site's profile was listed as a hidden community on their network profile. While the link at the top would be removed, the heading "Account" on the activity tab's Summary page would still link to their network profile anyway. That link has now been removed.

I think it's still useful to have a link there. It's come in handy in many cases, such as if I want to find their chat profile, or if I'm investigating something to report to a moderator.

When users enable a hidden community, they're notified and explicitly agree that the mechanism will only obscure the most obvious details and not more subtle ones. As it's unlikely that users would go to such a deep level to get a network profile, I think this link should be added back, or an alternate way added to get to the user's network profile. (Also, if the user has hidden all of their communities, the network profile's Accounts tab will show nothing anyway.)

  • 4
    This is an interesting one for me because we've consistently struggled with users wanting their hidden profiles to actually be hidden - so, while this may be a loss for some, it seems like an improvement for people who are expecting that hidden status to actually mean something.

    @KevinB: Doesn't mean you have to waste all that space on desktop; you could have tags side-by-side when the screen is wide enough for this, and have them automatically rearrange to fit the available screen width, into a single-file column on the narrowest screens.

  • @KevinB mobile first is fine in some situations - where you expect mobile to be the bulk of your traffic - that's not SE's user profile though - and anyways the right way to handle responsive design is never to just pad with whitespace to fill the screen.

I wasn't stating this design is what we should be striving for in a mobile first design, more, that it was designed for mobile first, and then the second part of mobile first design was entirely ignored (aka making it responsive toward larger monitor sizes) until after launching it.

Please put the date in a consistent place:

enter image description here

I get that on very small widths it is necessary to put the date on a new line at some point, but when the tags already span two lines, the date doesn't need a third. Can this third example be made consistent with the second row here on the Questions activity page.

    I wasn't able to find a portable, reusable way to guarantee tucking that date up there in every context, especially when there's the potential to have a username and such in that same area. Worth exploring upstream on our post summary component though. Dec 11, 2021 at 2:58

In fact, this issue should be resolved when we make the switch from the specialized post summary component used here (and in "Following") to the shared component we use in most other instances of the post summary. We have a branch that needs adjustments to account for the menu in the top right corner, so it's in the works (but may still be a week or two before it ships). These pluralization bugs, while annoying, are relatively low priority but they'll be resolved.

On some sites, e.g. the non-English Stack Overflow sites and English Language & Usage, the graph in the reputation widget is pushed down. This makes them look ... off ... and leads to enlarged 'Badges' and 'Impact' widgets as well.

This is how it looks on other sites:

The recent tab of the badges section used to order newest to oldest badges vertically in columns. Now they are ordered horizontally in rows. It was much easier to understand the progression and follow it visually with the older layout. Can this be reverted to how it was?

Please bring back the exact time in the reputation tab in the "time" view.

Currently, the time shows when in "post" view, but is hidden in "time" view unless there is a collapsable post. This is what I see now:

As you can see, when there is a post that can be expanded the time shows, but in all other cases there is no time. It would be much more consistent to show it all the time.

10

Make the headers on summary page links to subpages or add a link for "reputation".

There is a small link under "answers" and "questions" and everything else, but there is no link for "reputation" section. The blue link is for something completely different.

Maybe, it would be a good idea to move the blue link below the list and in its place put a link to the "reputation" page? Or maybe it would be a better idea to make the headers clickable.

Is the "View answer" link really necessary?

Android v.11 Galaxy XCover Pro, with Google app version 12.41.19.23.arm64

When I select Answers* from my Activity page, both the question's title and the option to "view answer" are identical links to my answer.

enter image description here

Q: Is there a need for two things in close proximity that do the same thing?

Also, by removing the "View answer" link the layout would then match the Questions page for consistency (and, in my opinion, be more aesthetically pleasing)...

enter image description here


*Or via the "View all..." option

Posts background on different listings do not change when the post is deleted.

E.g. this is a followed answer and is looks like this on the list:

While the answer itself was deleted:

Same with a followed question:

Which is actually deleted:

Not having this info on the list directly it's quite inconvenient.

Same happens in other listings, as "Bookmarks", etc.

Perhaps the inverse of Choosing a new tag badge to track is not possible - I've just earned a regular badge on Worldbuilding SE:

enter image description here

but when I click 'Track the next one' all I see are tag badges:

enter image description here

When I click a badge, it tries to save my choice with a POST call (relevant part below):

curl 'https://worldbuilding.stackexchange.com/users/activity/next-badge-popup/save' -X POST 'fkey=...&badgeDatabaseName=technology&isTagBadge=true'

but the call silently fails and returns the 'Reputation' widget:

enter image description here

After clicking 'Let us pick', the situation reverted back to normal. This was not just a one-off; this morning I was able to reproduce it on UX.SE.

Under the Activity tab, the Navigation title to the different activities selection is clickable, but it doesn't link to anything. Additionally, "View all activity pages" is also clickable, suggesting a view of something that isn't available.

Rather remove "View all activity pages", leaving the title Navigation and remove the clickability.

    It’s not a link, it’s a <label> which focuses the <select> underneath it; it doesn’t seem to expand the drop-down, unfortunately, but please don’t remove it. “View all activity pages” suggests that there are multiple different Activity pages / views, so it does attempt to communicate what “Navigation” is for, but it could be a bit clearer.

When you have offered multiple bounties of different values, the columns don't line up all that well (talking about the summary page). For instance, on my profile page, the columns saying the score of the post I offered bounties on don't line up:

Can this please be changed to make the comments line up more?

  • The usual practice in this case is not lining it up. If you group elements of different size on the same line they'll be misaligned between different lines, or you'll can align them vertically leaving empty space between the elements. The former option is overall preferable in this case.

The link 'x prior review suspensions' (visible for moderators after clicking 'Account info') overflows on smaller screens:

  • @AaronShekey thank you, this one is indeed low-priority.

After this FR that asked to restore numbered changes in the blue dots. I can notice the number is not centered within the dot so creating an awkward visual impression.

    I've captured this as a bug upstream in our design system. This is related to Windows' Segoe font having a lower baseline than the other system fonts. Dec 9, 2021 at 2:38

    I would be inclined to mark this as a bug, since it's inconsistent behavior between layouts on the same page

Results for suggested edits are in the wrong tense:

suggested edits listed as "Approve"

I didn't approve these suggested edits, I suggested them. They were then later approved. Similarly, suggested edits which used to be listed as "Rejected" now say "Reject"

Answer timestamp overflowing answer component (on the SO activity page, Newest and Activity tabs, and most likely Votes too, though this answer isn't highly upvoted).

In this second example, the question's title is "Reading " followed by a long path that is technically one word.

The design isn't great unless you're on mobile (I logged in for the first time on my phone and hit over to the desktop site just to check it out) - though it is much better now than it was this morning, there's still a few issues:

First the amount of content - there used to be more. Every section now seems limited to 5 items (or less in sections with other content like the reputation preview). Taking up more space for less content still isn't great, and nowhere is this more noticeable in the tags section, where before I had more than double the tags showing for my top tags, with 2 or 3 per line, rather than 5 even bigger lines of 65% to 79.3% wasted white space.

Second the summary responsive sections. At my full screen size (1900 x 1820) the summary section is three panels side by side which all look fine. I dragged the browser to the edge of the screen to get windows to tile it at half width (two side by side windows) and got this. It looks fine on other sites where I have 2 or all three badge classes, but if you only have bronze badges, the full width badge bar with the centered number looks overly stretched.

Third, the look of the reputation preview itself. I can't go back and verify it of course, but I believe the old design had space between the bars for the days - the new design is harder on the eyes, with wider bars and no separation, and if a user has pretty consistent changes, makes it hard to tell how many days the graph represents.(This has been changed, thank you)
