I went to my User CP and saw that I had a new visitor message. I clicked on the notification. The new message was not there. The notification still is.

Weird, no?

Very weird.

I'm pretty sure it's a side-effect.

I was sorting about in the admin panel earlier today, and saw that there were a handful of visitor messages hung up in the moderation queue, back from when we first did the update and enabled the feature -- probably they ended up there before I turned on the option for them to post directly into the profile, instead of having to be manually approved. So I mass-approved 'em.

Hm. That could go some way to explain why I have no idea what the message means :ROFL:

ETA: Oh and AHA! I just went back a couple of pages in my VMs and found it, dated September 9th. So it is real and a ghost at the same time. What an interesting side effect.

Yeah, I saw one, too. Thought maybe I was having a CRS moment.

Actually, if you want the technical explanation . . .

It's a sign of insufficient beer. No, really!

This happened to me, too. FWIW....

Beer -- YES! :D

yeah, I had three show up - and come to find out, they were all old ones. I feared I had so many that I had freaked out the system and was being denied new ones.

It's hell being popular.

I had one.

I had that too. I just deleted the visitor message and the notification went away.

It was one of bettielee's!

What's a visitor message?

Something you don't have, or at least aren't letting anyone see, you troglodyte. Else I'd leave you one. :tongue

My spook went away overnight.

weird, I had one but now can't even figure out how to get back there--nor could I figure out how to reply
