    i am not sure where to post this, it's a technical problem with the boards

    i didn't see a forum for this so i thought maybethis would be the best place to go, besides going straight to an admin who i am sure have more problems than they can think about already to deal with.

    my pm stuff is being really stupid. it will tell me i have a new message when i don't, but if i go into my sent folder and delete the last message i sent it goes back to normal. it also will only occasionally tell me if a pm i sent was read or not.
    is this a common problem? i tried a lot of things to fix it but nothing i did worked.

    right now it says i have a pm when i dont sometimes it says it and i have to manually delete it for it go back to normal...and sometimes after i read a message it goes to zero on its own. doesnt bother me too much b/c when you really get a new message, an alert window pops up saying so...

    ya know, that 1 new message i was saying i had...turned out it was still active as new b/c i didnt view it long enough to be considered read. that happens in outlook too. has to be open a while.

    though i have no idea why you arent getting message alerts.

    everytime that happens to me, I just delete some old messages and everything squares off again.

    Happens to me all the time too. I just select all messages in my inbox and "mark as read" to fix it. But yeah, it's a bug. Been there for about 6 months by my reckoning.
