Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

After Sha Dow Wiz Ard's comment on his question I'm wondering if this is intended behaviour. When I received new answers on an Area51 discussion question and a Stack Overflow question I was alerted in both the inbox tab and the notifications tab of the Super Collider.

For other questions on other sites, this hasn't been the case:

Notification of new answer

Matching inbox msg of new answer

And also:

Another notification of new answer

Another Matching inbox msg of new answer

It only seems to have happened for those two answers, I can't tell if it's cause they're slightly older or if it's related to the site that they are on - any ideas?

Oh, those indeed used to appear as orange bar alerts when returning to the site after a while. Thought you meant you get this for every answer.. – Shadow Wizard Jun 7 '12 at 10:48
