This is something I have noticed for some time now. Whenever I log in, I see the standard page, stating this:



Yet, it's never accurate. Virtually every time, I do have both private messages and thread replies, and it always states that there are no new ones, since my last visit. Now, I can locate those easily enough, just using the drop-down menu, and selecting for messages, so that's not a problem. Just wondering if this is an issue in coding some place, for the site, that might need attention. Not a big deal for me, but I don't now what else might be affected by whatever is causing this, so letting people know, in case it needs attention.

Fake news. That's what it is.
I am so disappointed.

No, I have wondered about it after noticing that it was wrong info. Maybe SO will send an underling to explain what is up with that.

Why log in and out at all? For years now, many members stay logged in and on...just bookmark your logged in favorite page anywhere you want it to open each time). Click and your here?

*Additionally...once you open your bookmarked signed in page? Just go to MESSAGES...less hassle. REPLIES there as well.

I logged in recently, and I was given 1 line of text.

It said, "Would you like to play a game?"'

Then Matthew Broderick showed up with Ally Sheedy, things got weird... I remember a bottle of Absolute, a toaster and an 8-iron.

I guess this response, is proof that things worked out.

Awesome.

Hope so, and that it isn't a symptom of some more serious issue. Just a curiosity thus far, as best I can tell. I always check messages anyway, but some might not.

That's my hope!! Didn't want to not mention it, and then discover it was something serious, and not noticed.

I just use the drop-down menu, and check messages there. Far simpler, I think, for me, anyway.

I like the message option in the drop-down for that. Simpler for me, and I do PM with a few folk, so works for both. Far less hassle; I agree!! Even opens in a new tab, so handy.

I tend to close the browser completely, and never save passwords anywhere. Just the way I do things. Some games I play eat a lot of RAM, for one thing, and I also don't want just anyone being able to access my log-in stuff, for whatever site. Just family around, as a rule, but still, it would bug me.
