This was asked before too. link.

Currently I am facing the issue of appearance of reputation notification in above toolbar.

I can see the reputation notification, for every page refresh even after clicking and viewing the notification.

current browser: Chrome Version 36.0.1985.143 m

    Not only the reputation notifications - but also unread inbox messages – Nir Alfasi Aug 16 '14 at 18:36
  • @alfasin yeah true.. I didn't get your message notification. – Mr_Green Aug 16 '14 at 18:38

    Also mentioned on meta.SO. Seems to be widespread. – dmckee --- ex-moderator kitten Aug 16 '14 at 18:41
  • Can't even see reputation of other users on hover on a username's link too. – Mr_Green Aug 16 '14 at 19:01

    Probably by design, they are testing stuff and test is not over yet. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Aug 16 '14 at 19:51

    ShadowWizard they wrote it's a read-write test, I don't think it's relevant. Looks like they deployed a bug... @david-fullerton – Nir Alfasi Aug 17 '14 at 0:12

    There's another problem with different symptoms. I suspect that it might still be related since it also started after the site maintenance completed. See meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/268978/…. I don't know if it affects sites other than SO, so I posted it on MSO. – Reto Koradi Aug 17 '14 at 4:05
  • Can you guys give it a try now please? @MonicaCellio – Nick Craver Aug 17 '14 at 4:30
  • It's still happening to me on Seasoned Advice. The tabs are unchanged. The system obviously still adds rep points, since I just signed up for this stack and can leave this comment. But the tab still shows the number (that actually should have changed a few times today) that it's been showing since it got stuck. – Jolenealaska Aug 17 '14 at 4:54

    @PatrickHofman I just came to say exactly the same thing. The upvote is tallied in my total rep and shows up in my profile, but not on the drop down. – Jolenealaska Aug 17 '14 at 6:35

    @alfasin I don't think it's a coincidence. Maybe they didn't intend for things to actually break but fact is, things broke. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Aug 17 '14 at 6:46

    Have "1 unread" inbox notification stuck since yesterday (after maintenance thing). – Rarst Aug 17 '14 at 7:55

    In my case, it got stuck there when I tried to clear it on Anime.SE. I only manage to clear my notification by opening the list on Meta.SE. – nhahtdh Aug 17 '14 at 15:38

    So no solution? We only hope for the sx team to fix this? – jeff Aug 17 '14 at 20:34

This was caused by a Redis failover snafu during the maintenance on Saturday. It should be all cleaned up now, though you'll need to click the notification one last time to clear it.

  • Still not fixed on Area51. If I get rep change while there, it will show up every time after page reload, and only after clearing it on "ordinary" site it will stop showing. Should I submit new bug report for this? – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Sep 10 '14 at 22:24
