Red box with -1

Post by 5waldos » Thu Apr 26, 2018 7:16 pm

Usually this box to the right of the inbox means either that I have a message waiting to read, or one sent that has not been read. But there are none and still the box remains. I have marked all messages as read and still it sits there taunting me. Any ideas?

That happens to me every once in a while. As far as I know there is no cure for it but time.

Variation today.

It is telling me that Klara quoted me in the thread "Do you ever feel like you don't exist?" When I click on that notification, it takes me to the top of the last page of that thread. It doesn't take me to the post where Klara quoted me in that thread, because Klara never quoted me that thread. And of course the Big Red One does not go away. Although it will in time, if history is any guide.
