I got +n reputation, while I was searching a question in the SE search. I clicked the achievements icon to make it disappear, but it didn't:

Received +2:

Clicked achievement dialog:

Clicked out of the dialog to close:

The +2 remains and the green background has disappeared. However, after a reboot it disappears.

Worth noting it happens only on stackexchange.com/*.

    Duplicate of Achievements dropdown is broken on SE.com; and it’s not fixed, @JNat. Commented Sep 11, 2020 at 23:35

    By "it's not fixed" do you mean that post isn't status-completed, or that you're actually able to still repro the bug, @user289905?

    @JNat I, and also other users, can still reproduce the bug. I guess, the status-completed tag also shouldn’t be applied, so maybe both. Commented Sep 14, 2020 at 10:46
  • It's not restrictive to stackexchange.com It happened on Math.SE too. Commented Oct 8, 2020 at 15:24

    Marking this as completed again, since it appears to have been addressed in the meantime.

  • @JNat it's still not fixed, I'm still seeing the problem with both.

Thanks for reporting this issue! I deployed a fix for this issue on SE.com. It should be fixed now. It's waiting to be deployed right now. The fix is deployed now :)

  • Is the inbox count too fixed? Achievement and inbox dropdowns aren't cleared after clicking, on https://stackexchange.com Commented Sep 23, 2022 at 16:19

    Sorry, we changed the deployment system and it looks like the deployment hasn't made it to production yet. We're looking into it and will update this question soon.
