This bug annoys me a lot.

animation of inbox notification reappearing

This is a bug that needs to be fixed.

  • A gif can't be paused like a video can Jun 28, 2015 at 13:47
  • And why do you need to pause it?

1 Answer 1


I wouldn't consider it to be the bug; the top bar is cached on non-SE 2.0 sites, which are the chat system and Area 51. The rep or achievements and inbox messages you've already read come away in a few minutes, for me in two, and doesn't really annoy me.

So, unless the chat system becomes a full-featured SE 2.0 site, which is technically not possible, this bug has almost zero chances to be fixed.

  • ARRRGH! MORE CACHING? Jun 28, 2015 at 13:31
  • @Uni lol, yes. Not my fault though :D

  • Anyways I'll wait for a dev to see this and fix it Jun 28, 2015 at 13:36
  • Why is chat not going to become a SE 2.0 site? Jun 28, 2015 at 13:38
  • @Uni Because it's not the usual SE site. You don't vote, don't post answers or questions, don't comment there, in other words, it's a completely different system. Instead ,you can post messages, create and manage rooms, star, etc. SE 2.0 sites are the ones you see there.

    @UniKitty Doesn't mean it can't be improved though, and repeat notifications is a bit "buggy" imo. Even if status-bydesign, the design needs tweaking :)

    This is, at best, a non-answer... all you're saying is the bug is unlikely to be fixed. That's comment territory... no answer needed.
