Am I the only person experiencing this?

It’ll randomly say that I have like anywhere from 4 to 57 new comments on something but when I click on it there’s nothing new and it’s strange????

I've identified the cause of this now. For some reason, the caching system we use isn't clearing cached notification counts like it's supposed to. I can see that it's counting the notifications correctly, but then it's disregarding that and using the incorrect value from the cache. Sadly, I have run out of time to troubleshoot it this weekend because I'm headed over to my parents' house for Father's Day, but I'll be back at it next weekend.

[edit] I've attempted a fix actually. I'll leave it like this for a while and see if it's any better. Temporarily locking thread to draw attention to this comment. Looks like thread locking isn't properly set up - reply/edit buttons aren't disabled - but it's close enough for now

Yup same thing happening to me

yes, it’s been happening to me too. I just haven’t had a chance to look into it yet. I’ve added some logging so that I can track down what’s happening.

Has this only recently started happening or has it been happening for months? I can’t remember how long it’s been happening to me.

I wrote most of this site in a week when I was new to this coding language, so random issues pop up occasionally.
