When you have new reputation activity while the "There are a few questions with new activity" bar is shown and you click on your reputation activity to watch and afterwards refresh the page, it will again show them as new. If you view them again, the notification dissapears.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Have reputation activity going on
  • Step away from computer for 15 minutes
  • View reputation activity dropdown overview
  • Close dropdown overview, verify the notification is gone
  • Refresh page
  • Gasp at resurfaced notification for the same reputation changes

Browser: Chrome 31.0.1650.57 m

    It's not that it again shows them as new, it's that the JS doesn't clear the client cache upon real-time notification, this is planned probably today as part of a JS consolidation there. Commented Nov 21, 2013 at 11:05

    Update: this will be delayed a bit. Jarrod and I tried to make the current JS work with change yesterday and hated it, reverting changes - it was just way too hacky. We're taking an extra day or two to re-write top topbar script the way it needs to be (think of each dropdown object-model-like), doing it right. Commented Nov 22, 2013 at 11:09
