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.
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.
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 :-)
I've gotten several over the past few days GAG is really fudging up at times lol. Sometimes it runs so slow and I just wanna throw my laptop out in the yard AGHHHHHH!!! GAG WHY ARE YOU FUDGING UP SO MUCH!!!
It happens to me EVERY SINGLE DAY like wth man -.-
I'm like a dog chasing after it's own tail which is impossible lmao I clicked through every freaking bar - notification, opinion, comment, mention yet still cannot get rid of that bubble. I hate it sooo much ughh ><
