-1 new messages?


Sr Member
As it says in the title - The bar at the top fo the screen informs me that I have -1 New Messages.



Sr Member
Damn, now its the -1 message bug... It's no bother, I am just trying to keep you all informed of any problems...


Sr Member
Understood :) I have no problem as this is not the only time it has happened, I guess maybe you can call it bug reporting.

Thanks again.

Can you help? I have a "1 new messages" symbol that won't go away. There are no messages in my inbox and it still shows on the screen?



Sr Member
I know how to fix the problem (At least until the Techs can figure out the cause) :) .

However many New Messages you have in the negative, for example I had -8 New Messages, Send yourself a PM
by clicking on your username, (I just wrote Subject: Hello and the Message: Hello again) then answer it.

After you have answered your own PM, delete the original one, and your Negative count will go down.
Repeat for each Negative New Message.

It worked for me. :D

You can also try *just* clicking "reply" and them backing out before hitting send. Saves the trouble of actually sending yourself (or some other "lucky" member) all those PM's.

Your message may be considered spam for the following reasons:

  1. Your new thread title is very short, and likely is unhelpful.
  2. Your reply is very short and likely does not add anything to the thread.
  3. Your reply is very long and likely does not add anything to the thread.
  4. It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose.
  5. Your message is mostly quotes or spoilers.
  6. Your reply has occurred very quickly after a previous reply and likely does not add anything to the thread.
  7. This thread is locked.
