This question is about the fact that the response number on my profile page is still there when I checked the new responses via inbox. Two images to explain:
Inbox is cleared:
Profile page shows response:
I have found on meta that the responses tab number shows the number of new responses since your last visit to your profile page, and has nothing to do with having viewed them or not. The problem is, I could swear that a week or so ago I never had that number there! Is this just me never having noticed, or has something actually changed?
