unread notifications mark, viewing them not possible?



  • the site says that I’ve got to check two unread notifications,
    but when I click on it, it says that there are no unread notifications?
    so, how am I supposed to read them then?
    I tried clicking to see all notifications too, no luck either,
    that says "You have no new notifications "

    You could click on the bell (notification) icon and then select See All Notifications. The 2 it is talking about should be the most-recent ones. But yea, it is a little quirky, especially if you’ve been away for a while…



  • yes, I was away for a while,
    so no way to get what I’ve missed :(



  • @patrickdrd

    Well, if you missed the Community THAT much, there is a way. What I do is remember when I was last here, and then using the “clock” icon I read back thru all the messages until I get to the “last here” point. Kinda tedious, I know.

    When you have been away for a while, the unread messages indicator as well as the notification indicator seem to lose their minds and show smaller numbers than they should.



  • thanks, I checked if there was any new answer to the threads I posted (from my profile or something) but I couldn’t find any

    I did that and it said “You have no new notifications.” I then looked for this topic and see @patrickdrd had the same issue.

    It seems like a quirk as now I see a plain white bell. I still have no idea why it had a red “2” next to it when I signed in.

    I believe most people will be “have been away for a while” users.



  • @mkupper

    red 2

    Well, it is supposed to mean that you have a combination totaling 2 of:

    • replies to threads you participated in
    • reputation changes to posts you made

    But, as noted before, it seems a bit buggy if you have been away for a while
