    PM Notification but nothing in my Inbox.

    The top-right link box keeps telling me I have a notification, an unread private message to be more exact but when I go to check my Inbox there's nothing new in it.

    For what it's worth I've tried logging out and back in, clearing cookies and changing browser.

    Did you check to see if you have any pending friend requests? Those show-up there too and can be confusing sometimes.

    I hadn't checked that but I did now and I can't find any of those either.

    Nope, no infractions either.


    This is what it looks like at least.

    Try using the "Read & replied status" filter to show Unread PMs and see if it lists any.

    Anything being done here at all?
    If nothing else I'd just like the notification to disapppear, I don't even care about the contents of the PM.
    I just want the site to stop telling me I'm missing something :[

    I even went ahead and used the "empty inbox" option but it didn't help either.

    Do you have anyone on your ignore list? You might try removing them, seeing if you have a PM from one of them, and then readding them after you delete it. I'm not sure if that's how the ignore list functions (I mean, it shouldn't but who knows), but it's worth checking.

    I thought for sure it would be a friend request like Arlee suggested. That's what it was for me when I had a similar issue.

    My ignore list is empty.

    IF it was a friend request, it would be under "Networking -> Friends & Contacts", right? Just making sure.

    Honestly I'm not sure, send me one and I'll check and SS

    - - - Updated - - -

    Okay, it's Settings > Incoming Friend requests, but it also says on the notification that it's a friend request not a PM (which I didn't remember it doing before).

    Sorry homes

    Well, that sucks.
    I'm super OCD about notifications and messages and it's driving me crazy!

    ...I didn't even get a new friend.

    Just you know, randomly throwing it out there, but maybe try signing out completely from the site and then signing back in? Probably won't fix it but it couldn't hurt to try.

    sending you a PM, maybe when you delete it it will delete the notification for the other one too.

    I tried logging out and back in before I made this thread. Is there something else included in signing out completely? If so, I'll try that too!

    Obviously your cookies are possessed and what you need is some kind of shaman to release the evil spirits.

    Sorry, mang, I'm out of ideas.

    Umm... yea... the only other thing I would say is to logout and delete your cookies and stuff, and then try again. I am assuming you have closed and restarted your browser too...

    Sigh. Thanks anyway.
    Strongly considering just making a new account to be rid of that stupid notification.

    It is now on the list of things to be looked at.

    Cool, no new account for me then.

    A random thought hit me though, is it possible that it is related to the fact that I used to be a mod?
    Like, getting a mod notification but I no longer have the permission required to read it?

    Just thought I'd throw it out there at least.
