Forums: Index > The Wizengamot > I have new messages

Newbie question:

So I'm active at a few other wikis, and I was testing a workaround for some broken tables that switches the reader into Monobook temporarily. When I opened it, I got the big orange "You have new messages at Harry Potter Wiki" bar. This is absurd -- I don't have any new messages. I checked the page history of User talk:Catuse167 even. Does anyone know why this happens? Cat 17:20, April 21, 2012 (UTC)

I've never heard of such a thing. Can you give us more details about what exactly it was you were editing, and on which wiki? That might help to try to figure out what triggered it. ProfessorTofty 17:37, April 21, 2012 (UTC)
'kay. w:c:finalfantasy:template talk:cleanup. I clicked the big orange button that said "Click here" (you will not see this in Monobook). Sure enough, it took me to the Monobook version of that page like it was supposed to, but when it did, that big orange bar that says "You have new messages at Wiki XYZ" that appears in Monobook when you have new messages showed up. Wondering why somebody was messaging me from the Harry Potter Wiki, I clicked it, and it took me back to Oasis -- specifically to w:c:harrypotter:user talk:Catuse167 -- then I viewed the edit history of my user talk. Nothing. So I got new messages here, except that I didn't have new messages here. What's up with that? Cat 17:42, April 21, 2012 (UTC)
