    I experienced the same behavior. It might be related to the moderator election notification. – Frédéric Hamidi Jun 12 '12 at 6:05
  • @FrédéricHamidi yes it may be related to the moderator election notification but then it must be only 1st line. you can see 1st line in above image. – Paresh Mayani Jun 12 '12 at 6:11

    @PareshMayani , me too had the same notification.. – Lucifer Jun 12 '12 at 6:16
  • @Arjan: If you read the answer to the one I linked, he says they're not going to fix it. They're just going to leave the counts for users to clear out manually. All the actual duplicate notifications have been removed, though. – animuson Jun 12 '12 at 6:16

    Nope, @animuson, it's not about seeing a zillion notifications. (I thought so too, and hated seeing so many thins closed and deleted, but while editing realized I was wrong. This is about something else, I think.) – Arjan Jun 12 '12 at 6:16
  • @Arjan: Ah, I see. Probably just a side-effect of the notifications bug. In that case, I don't see what the problem is, as viewing them will mark them as viewed again. So what's the problem? – animuson Jun 12 '12 at 6:18
  • (Please use uppercase "I" in "I do" and all. Thanks.) – Arjan Jun 12 '12 at 6:18
  • Oh, it might be related after all, as it's 87 in total, @animuson. Then indeed something that has been reported and tagged completed, or closed as a dupe, as too localized or even deleted (not nice when you know for sure you saw it earlier...!) – Arjan Jun 12 '12 at 6:22
  • Just a wild guess: the global inbox most likely just takes your notification count and highlights that many notifications down the list as "new" and then resets your notification count to zero. So it only appears that you're being re-notified on these, when actually the fake notifications about the election were removed, but the count was not reset. It's a very minor inconvenience that can be fixed by simply viewing the notifications inbox. – animuson Jun 12 '12 at 6:33
  • Nice, Sherlock, errr, @animuson! – Arjan Jun 12 '12 at 17:00
