Prior to the recent "read-only" mode related to the data center migration, someone commented on an answer of mine. I did not visit that site prior to the maintenance period, so I never cleared the notification.

When the site came out of read-only mode, I noticed that the inbox notification, which I click and the notification disappeared.

But when I go to another page (or reload the current page), the notification comes back.

Ok, here it is:


Good it's gone

Yeah, its gone

Ack, it came back (again and again and again)

It's baacck

Given the notifications that have come from this question, it might be the top bar that is busted. I did not see any reputation notifications at all and the inbox nofitications still displays (1) despite that fact that this question (as of this writing) has 2 comments.

And now the issue with the top-bar (rep notification and the ever present inbox notification appears to be gone. Given the timing, it may have been related to the migration (either directly or indirectly).

    I get that occasionally unrelated to any apparent ongoing maintenance. Commented May 31, 2014 at 17:06
  • The issue I was having, which Martijn linked to (the new rep notifications was doing exactly the same thing,) has now been resolved. Are you still having problems, @psubsee2003?

Thanks for bringing this up. I am unable to reproduce the issue at this time, so I have to conclude that it was an isolated incident related to some factor such as the migration you mentioned earlier. Sorry for the inconvenience.
