Looks like minor bug, but still..

alt text

The number is 3 but I see only 2 new notifications.

Any idea? :)

You probaly have multiple new comments in the same question.

  • I thought the number was only the new items.. well I'll have closer look and see. So you say if there are 10 new comments in single question with @Shadow in them, I'll see 10 in the red circle?? Dec 9, 2010 at 8:36

    @Shadow Wizard - this is the case. The # on the inbox is the number of new answers/comments/messages. The collapsing (as you can see in the "8 comments" in your screenshot) is done at display time (as is highlighting), well after the # is served. A few people may remember waaaay back when (for about a day or two) this was not the case, and the inbox was a lot more annoying to use. Dec 9, 2010 at 8:42
