    Do you have a blinking notification for no reason? Perhaps you have this envelope:


    But you don't have a pm as it states?

    Or perhaps you have a social group with no unapproved messages, but the system is still telling you that ya do?

    If that's the case, please reply here.


  2. I do! I've had that problem for quite some time. It says I have 5 unapproved~~~~on the HAMB Merc Club Social groupe....

    I have Firefox configured to display animated images as a still image, so I never see it blink.

    I pre-empted that bug, eh?
  7. Thanks, lets hope it gets fixed soon.

    Yours is a special case Bob. I think the blinking is telling you you are unapproved to be on the HAMB. I thought you got that message. :)

    Unrelated , but a day or two ago, I would get a "privacy report" icon show up on the lower task bar, but only on one particular thread that I clicked on. As soon as I clicked "back", the icon went out.

    Well,I don't have any problem with my PM's and I don't have the flashy thing, but I do have unapproved group messages in my notifications that I can't find? Obviously, if I can't see them I can't approve them, so it just sits there saying "your notifications:1"

  12. Yup! I've had that blinking thing (envelope) for over two years now. I just ignore it! Crow. LFFL

    I've had an "Unapproved Group Message" for quite awhile now. I had asked about it before, and you were aware of the issue. Is there a way to remove it now?

    well, does sometimes count?

    there are days i have the PM "envelope" flashing, and i have no unread PMs. i'll empty my cache and sometimes it goes away, sometimes not. it'll go away for a week, then its back again for a half a day or so... nothing more than a little distraction
