My PM inbox shows gray 1 after I write message to someone

Not sure if it quialifies as a bug, but to me it looks like an undesired and unexpected behavior.

After writing a new message in a PM thread and then switching to my inbox list, a “1” is shown in a gray circle.

Yes I have been getting this issue, to remove it just click on the topic! I guess it’s because you were not at the bottom of the topic while writing a post, then you haven’t read it. But you have already viewed the topic which makes it grey insetead of blue. Idk if this is true, but that’s what I think! :smile:

Yes, correct, grey means unread but not new (these posts existed in the topic the last time you visited). Blue means unread and new.

So needs to be fixed?
First, there is no counter in front of the topic, then it appears after I post a message - not what one would expect.

Yes its a minor bug.

We should treat your posts as “unconditionally” read and not rely on read time tracker to mark it read.

Not a bug until we have repro steps, and I cannot repro this.


(Sam Saffron) #7

I am pretty sure it requires a very very bad internet connection, or impeccable timing.

I have tested something on our forum, if you open a reply and scroll up in the topic while still being in this “reply” mode, and then reply, it will do this.
