On Stackoverflow, whenever a new notification comes and I refresh the web page, for some seconds, it shows 99 notifications and then change to 1.

I did not get a chance to take a screenshot, but I am trying. I will post the screenshot as soon as I will get.

  • I saw that about an hour ago, you're not imagining it ;) – yannis Jun 6 '12 at 16:52
  • Will someone post a screen shot then? :P – Lix Jun 6 '12 at 17:07
  • Repro - When you have one (or more) notifications, refresh the page. A 99 will turn to 1. (using Chrome here) – Oded Jun 6 '12 at 17:07
  • @Lix - It appears for something like a fraction of a second. Difficult to capture. – Oded Jun 6 '12 at 17:08

This is what happens when you mixup Min & Max.

Desired behavior is only showing up to 99 notifications, not only more than 99 notifications.

A fix for this will go out with the next build.

  • Is this one the same bug, or a new one? – tchrist Jun 11 '12 at 23:50
  • This has just happened to me: so still awaiting the next build? – Richard Jun 12 '12 at 7:12
