When going through subscriptions using https://boardgamegeek.com/subscriptions/next, when you have 0 new messages on your subscriptions, there's a screen that simply says "No new messages." Such a simple screen doesn't really effectively convey the sadness of having no more subs to page through. Here are some possibilities:

- Add some emoticons: soblue No more messages soblue
- Add that Arrested Development gif of George Michael walking away pouting
- Link to a youtube sad trombone video
- Include a link to a random active thread to give a desperate user something to read
- Recommend active threads, games, and/or users to subscribe to so that you'll usually have more subs to page through
- Automatically redirect to an active thread to delight a user before (/if) they realize that they never subscribed to that thread

wow, that's some next-level subbing. Maybe you should be able to configure it in your user profile to show you the Snoopy happy dance gif instead...?

Please lets not have anymore dumbed down Kindergarten style stuff on the web. Everything looks like it's been designed by and for 6year olds these days.
