-1 New Messages...?

Why does my message reminder at the top say -1 New Messages? That is weird. I looked and am not at my quota and no new message either. And... it clearly says -1 not just 1 ...minus one.

That's been happening since the board upgraded the last time.

You most likely deleted a PM? Every few days, the count goes back to zero.

You must have recently deleted some of your messages. That's just how it is indicted.

I have the same thing since the message boards were upgraded. It's a glitch, don't worry about it. I hope that Scott will have it fixed soon.

If you delete a message that hasn't been read you get the negative reading.

The message count issue should correct itself. In an effort to save board resources and speed it up for everyone some settings have now been changed to free up resources, including real-time post and message counts. These are now updated every few hours instead of live.

Take care,

Scott

-1 PM's is a long standing bug in IPB that reoccurs from time to time in upgrades. Just ignore it. I have actaully had mine say -6 once, with out deleting anything. I see this on my board too, and spoken to IPB tech support about it and they just basically admit it happens and leave it at that. :)

Its harmless.... :D
