I just signed up here the other day and this flashing envelope thing won't stop flashing. There are no messages in my inbox. I even sent myself a test message, then selected "check all" then selected "delete selected". The test message disappeared and the inbox is empty, but even after a page refresh, dumping the browser history/cache/website data, signing out and back in, the "blinking envelope" icon keeps blinking.

I see some others have had this problem. Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

It only flashes while you are on probation.
After 20,000 posts it will stop.

It's been almost two weeks and this stupid envelope is still blinking. It's torture, like a dripping faucet.

Or, three years - whichever comes first!

Is there really no fix? How do you know if you have a new PM?

That would be the auto self destruct button. Your mission, should you attempt it, is to do absolutely nothing to it. Should it ever stop flashing, this site will self destruct in 60 secs....

the only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker, is observation. all the same data is present for both. The rest, is understanding what you're seeing.

Put a sticker on the screen where it shows up - like people do with "Chuck, the Engine Light" on their cars.
