You have 3 new messages

Postby awjoe » Mon Jan 11, 2021 5:11 am

When I click the Forum Tab, I get a pop-up alert on the main page that says 'You have three new messages'. When I click on it, I'm taken to my PMs page. Imagine my bitter disappointment to discover there are no new messages there! :(

No new messages, and I can't get rid of the popup. Is there a fix?

And here... I answered today by mistake a message that someone sent me 9 months ago, having forgotten that I had already done so. I am getting older, sure, but...

BEFORE YOU POST HERE

This is a known problem which all other forum users have experienced. It has been reported to the Mods through several threads

A spammer exploited a - now-closed - loophole. It may take a few days to clear the spurious alert.

Move along please... nothing more to see here... :lol:

Understandably, multiple threads were started relating to this topic so locking this one to avoid further duplication. The main thread can be found here:
