No notification from new private message

If you have found a bug, or have a suggestion/comment then leave it here

May be I'm missing a personal setting somewhere else. I have site notification enabled but when I receive new private messages, it never notified me.

If it was never implemented, can the "alert" notify you new private message as well?

Yeah, it's something that's been missing with the new site layout.

for me, I can't tell if I have PM, in fact, If I have 0 PM, I have the "Inbox (0)"

If I have one, I see:"Inbox (System.Web.UI.WebControls.Literal)"

I guess System.Web.UI.WebControls.Literal don't mean 1 in any language, so, I think it is a bug

And that is why you shall respect the bug reports guidelines, not only giving a capx is making the bug reproductible in one click in a situation they can work with (less time wasted trying to reproduce vague instructions) but also it helps filtering false positives.

Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.

@Aphrodite
I think that's a .net ASP thing, it's not being able to retrieve the number or something like that.
I got this same bug today when I had 1 new PM

If you have a new PM and go to your profile it does say 1 new PM under the logout option in the top right. Also it will say Inbox(1) when you select your name at the top right of the main website menu. Notifications could be useful though..

Chalk up another embarrassed victim of non-notification. Had a few messages collecting dust for a couple months...
