Anyone getting phantom notifications?

I woke up to a notification of a mention, yet when I open the list of mentions, none of them have the little yellow notation. Historically, even a notification on an older question would be bumped to the top of the chronology until it was viewed. I went through the entire list, and even opened each question I've ever been mentioned on in hopes of clearing it, but to no avail. I also tried signing out and back in... no dice.

I'm wondering if this is just a bug in the new layout, or if my worst fears have been confirmed and I am, in fact, a moron, and I'm just doing something wrong, haha.

Anyone else having any issues with this? Figured I'd post this as a question to either bring the issue to light, or give you all a venue in which to mock my stupidity...

@Sparrow24 Are YOU the evil genius behind this? 😜

    We are aware of the ghost notification issue, that some of you are seeing notifications for new posts that aren't there.
    No need to worry, this will be fixed soon!

    In the meantime, see what's new in our FAQ and in our myTake, What’s New on G@G Street!

    • Ahhh, I'm on my phone, so it's all the way on the bottom.

      When all else fails, read the directions.
