  • I'm having a similar issue on the iOS app (v1.3.1 on iOS 8 on iPhone 5). The most recent comment in my inbox, which I read weeks ago, is showing is unread and reading it doesn't change the status. This is only happening on the app - in the browser, it's fine.

  • I was able to confirm this last night on my phone (Android 5.1; SE 1.0.62) though it appears to have magically fixed itself after I cleared out my notifications in the browser. Commented May 14, 2015 at 18:10

This should be fixed in a build rolling out now. We are making huge inbox changes behind the scenes and this slipped through, sorry!
