Ok, GaG REALLY needs to fix up its notification system 😑👻 ?

I KNOW THIS ISN'T JUST HAPPENING TO ME! im not crazy.

i love it when i come on here and see this wonderful orange circle with notifications. now the NORMAL proceedings would be to find the new activity and act accordingly but NOOOO, this is turning into some kinda game of hide-and-seek. I ain't GOT TIME FO DAT.

First it was 1 notification... now i have 4 that have taken on a poltergeist form and it's messing with my head. my activity here is turning into some episode of virtual ghostbusters lol -.-

WHAT IS GOIN ON BRUH? @girlsaskguys i mean ily, but please. PLEASE.

rant over.

seriously though, anyone relating here?

Updates:
guys, if u have an issue, spam HoneyBee LOL! :P

    Troll ghost is troll.

    It happened to me and I went just bananas for a bit. I happened to find the mention where it happened (because they apparently are ghost mentions), but it was seriously annoying me quite a bit.
    I always hate it when something says "new" around it. It gives me pleasure in clicking them away. I kept checking my notifications more and more but nothing was popping up. xD

    I would suggest you think back to recent comment conversations you started with another person. That's where they tend to be-- in the mentions.

  • Lol!
    If you're on the page all the notifications are from, the orange circles are going to disappear.

    Example: the orange circle says they're 4 notifications, so you click on the question. The notifications could be 1 new comment but 3 comment replies, so the orange circle notifications will disappear.

    Also, answering questions in different tabs in the browser, will affect the number of notifications reflected.

    If you are answering questions and someone replies while you're on that screen you have to refresh it & their comment won't be marked as "new"

    As long as you go by the notification tab marked by the "bell" symbol, you shouldn't miss any notifications, new ones are highlighted, even if the orange circle doesn't appear.

    • lol nah i do that but sometimes there are notifications where even if u click on the question there is no new activity at all.

      also, i usually do refresh and have always used multiple tabs without having this problem. i feel like it's some kind of glitch that may affect some of us.

      thanks anyway

    • Your wish is my command.

  • Yes I know what you mean. I have had this happen on a number of occasions, it says I have notifications and I search for them and I don't. Then I can't get the orange circle to go away.

  • You're not alone Anna... more and more users see fake notifications :o
    I've had them in the past, but so far, for me the issue has not come back. But many many users have it!
    All systems and sites have their bugs you know... we'd better learn to find it funny haha :-)

  • Ahh nice, glad as hell I'm not the only one it's happening to, @justbanANNAz

    So many wonderful changes, GaG. They totally aren't trying to "fix" an unbroken system or anything.

    They're as bad as YouTube. Thanks for drawing this to their attention, cause I thought maybe my thing and my thing alone had just lost it.

  • I also think we should stop receiving notifications when we receive an up vote from the Asker. Notifications should only be for mentions and responses.

    • yeah me too!

      bro i just gave up eventually. i had a mention notification sitting there for an hour until it decided to reveal where it was coming from -.-

    • I chased it for like three hours omg im just so lifeless lol

      Until I managed to find out that someone mentioned me -.-

    • LOL ur not the only one. others have confessed to doing that :P

  • You need to use the "Contact Us" button at the bottom of the page and report the issue. Asking a question is less likely to see a change.

    I personally haven't had any problems with the notifications.

    • oh sorry! lol i must have missed them all =/

    • lol.. that's fine.. i hope they see these questions and do something about it

  • Yes, I've gotten a few of those myself! I'm not sure if those notifications are remnants of old comments and such or if I'm actually missing new notifications, haha. Makes me wonder.

    • i know, gotta be bloody sherlock to figure out what's happening. -.-

    • Right? Lately, I'm just hoping I'm not missing anything because I don't feel like searching, haha.

  • Yes! It's driving me insane (and I was pretty borderline to begin with)

    Sidenote, I don't like the notifications for asker upvote. It just makes me open the question again to clear it when I know there's no new comment.
