35

In the last hour or two I've gotten green notifications for rep changes, but they look like badge notifications because there's no number:

screen shot with obligatory freehand circles

I sometimes see this graphic appear for something less than a second and then be replaced (or overlaid?) by the number, but this stayed the same over time (a few minutes in the header, and I left the drop-down in the screen shot in place for several seconds). This has happened a few times.

(OS 10.6, Firefox 31.0 and Chrome 36.0.1985.125, no known recent changes in add-ons.)

Edit: I just got a number-bearing notification on my Android phone (Chrome), but this bug is still showing in Firefox on my Mac.

    Happened to me too, but as I got only +10 thought it might be a one time glitch. Commented Sep 19, 2014 at 21:39

    @Mysticial good chance you'll get the number back when the bug is fixed, so if you're into hoarding it, do not click the drawer! ;-) Commented Sep 19, 2014 at 22:24

    Leaves a comment so it can just be ignored, since it's also broken

  • Web sockets are working just fine otherwise, just the global inbox and achievement boxes are affected. Commented Sep 20, 2014 at 10:12
  • Also affects comment notifications, not just rep change notifications: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/239677/… Commented Sep 20, 2014 at 11:27
  • I believe the badge-page broke at the same time ... related?

I'm deploying the fix. Should be live in the next 20 minutes or so now.

    What happened to make this not appear? Something to do with redis?

  • @hichris123 Nah, just an errant CSS change. Reverted the commit and presto.
