My notifications are -1

Post by Phineas J. Whoopee » Wed May 03, 2017 5:53 pm

The title says it all. At the top it says I have -1 notifications. I suppose I can find the internal emotional resources to deal with it, but it does look pretty strange.

You obviously owed someone a notification, but they accepted this new topic to zero your balance.

If you had your notification overdraw feature turned off, this would not have happened.

I always try hard to never read more notifications than I have.

I have 254 notifications presently.
That number fluctuates with an upward trend.

I hope you don't get any overflow with this post.

Quoting, but unfortunately I don't remember who. Anybody who seeks it will gain (probably fraudulent) honor and recognition in case of success. (I understand there's a $100 prize for proving Shackleton's alleged ad ever was published. So far it's not been claimed.)

I take on 50 times as much as anyone can possibly do. I work at about 2% efficiency. That means I have a factor of 2500 against me. Each day I fall seven years more behind.

In the User Control Panel --> Overview -->Manage notifications, you can mark all notifications read.

The bottom of the page has a "Mark all" link which will check all the boxes, then "Mark read".

Long day. I spent some time today reconciling my MoneyDance (Quicken replacement) accounts and looked for the opening and ending balances in the notifications window. There are none. :D
