Alright, this is driving me insane. I keep marking all forums as read and it won't go away. Every time this happened before that worked, but not this time..... @ @Rivieraneo Mike

I have been tagged many times, yes.
Do you mean right now? I am subscribed to a ton of threads, and right now it says 5 unread, but it only shows 4.

Have you tried scrolling down the list of subscribed threads to see if one is buried?

It could also be that a thread you were subscribed to has since been merged.
I've seen this behaviour before, and can't recall if it was a bug in the forum code.

Yeah, that's what it was the other times. This happened to me twice yesterday, the first time though it was a post that took a while to show up. I have scrolled down to see if it's buried, it isn't. I even went to page 2.

So apparently this is just a dumb glitch. Because I went through and deleted every single subscribed thread on the first page and some of the second page and it still didn't go away....... how do I get rid of it? ryanr

I've just moved some posts to a new thread, that may account for you getting a new notification?

Perhaps..... I'll try marking all forums read and see if that gets rid of one of them, it probably won't get rid of the other one though.
Edit: @Coradee, nope, didn't work. :-\
Edit again: after visiting the posts you moved (dwarf gouramis and angels in a 20g) one notification went away, the other one is still there and refuses to go away. ryanr, can you help?

You could try logging out & clearing your cookies then logging back in again & see if it disappears.
If that doesn't work then sorry I can't help, I don't do techy stuff

Sometimes threads or posts are moved out of view from the general membership.
They are 'there' but now viewable to the public.
I wonder if that's what the issue is.

If you have a link to those threads send them to me through pm.
I can check out this theory if you want.

Hmm. How do I know if there's a thread like that? As far as I know I haven't seen one.

Well, you wouldn't see it if one of the mods handled it as mentioned above.
When you click notifications it won't show you the thread?

No, it won't. It just says one new thread and doesn't show any black-highlighted threads.

Gosh Anders, I don't know. That must be very annoying.
The only thing I can think is maybe it was a thread that was moved from public view.
Mike may have more insight.
