When I log in it says that I have 9 new messages, but when I click on that message and go to my inbox there are no messages. I have tried three different browsers, 2 on one machine and 1 on another machine.
This is probably a resulte of the recent downtime the forum experienced. I believe we reverted back to an earlier version of the forum, and many posts were lost. I don't think you've actually missed reading any new messages. David is working to get us onto a more reliable server, so we'll avoid these things happening in the future.
