This morning I was filled with joy as the little box came up telling me that I had a new message. 8 messages, 1 is new. So I click into my inbox... and see only my old messages. I count. There are seven. I search for the name of the sender provided by my emailed forward (which doesn't display the PM, incidentally) and no results turn up.

So I PM'ed the sender, and I'm sure that that will be resolved... but now I can't delete the message, hah. Not only that, every time I log into a session, I get the notification box again. It's pretty annoying.

Help?

The message you received was an undesired image that you didn't want to see anyway, and was from a troll.  (A number of other people received the same message.)  I deleted the messages sent by that user, but apparently I forgot to click the button to update the message counts, which resulted in the error you saw.  I have updated the counts now for everyone, so all should be well again.

Thanks for the notice.
