Well Cindy, since you're sitting right across from me.
We got feedback from Chris R. about the project dashboard, so I used it to improve the messaging flow a little bit.
1. Added an indicator if there are previous messages
2. Fixed the linking from the backer list
Clicking on the button to message a backer will now direct you to the conversation, instead of just a blank message form, and if there are messages from before then they will be displayed. This makes it a bit easier to see your previous conversation with someone
