This has happened a few times lately:

I get the red notice "1 new" up next to the Subscriptions icon. But when I click on the 1 new text, the actual page has NO new items listed.

If this is a known bug, I am unaware so excuse my ignorance.

Thanks!

I believe that this sometimes happens if someone made a post (triggering a subscription notification) and then deleted the post before you clicked your notification.

No idea if there's a bug, but if people edit their posts/comments etc it will appear as a "new" subscription item, despite nothing obvious changing when you check. Maybe this is the issue?

Thanks gents! That makes sense. I guess it will just hang around until something else "real" appears in my subscription notifications.

EDIT: ...or not. New sub items did indeed appear, but the "phantom" persists. Not a big deal.

Ah, if a phantom persists even after you click through your "Next" notifications, then that does indeed sound buggier.

I just got this this morning too. My subscription line shows "2 new" but when I click on it, there's nothing there. Even after other stuff comes in, it still shows the actual number +2.
