Funny glitch with P. Messages Can't Post

Not at all a big deal, but for the last 2 days it says "1 new mesgs" (the red thing below the lifted "Your Messages" ring) whether I have any new messages or not. I've read them all and clicked on the newest several times, refreshed and re-started.

Still that lifted ring. Must get Spray 'n' Wash or Oxyclean or something. :D

Sounds like one of your PMs is a Ranger or wearing a Ring. // [In reply to] Can't Post


Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

Two things I would try: [In reply to] Can't Post

Log off from TORN then log back in. If the notification is still there, try clearing your cache to get rid of the ghost. Good luck!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Did you look in your sent messages? [In reply to] Can't Post

Not sure why, and just guessing, but maybe it ended up in there.


Good night, tOR.Nados. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely delete you in the morning.

Well, I can see all my messages , incuding all new ones. [In reply to] Can't Post

But even after I've read them, it stills says "1 new mesgs" in red under the lifted ring, even when I read the most recent several times. It's like it's stuck.

There's nothing unusual in the sent or send folders--just what's supposed to be there.

It's just weird; not hurting anything really.

I just sent you a PM. [In reply to] Can't Post

Sometimes I get a stuck "new post" notice on the main forum screen and it stays despite being read until new posts are added and it changes the notice from within the system. Let's see if having a new PM to read reboots your PM notices.

Ha! Still there! [In reply to] Can't Post

Sauron is spying on me, I just know it! (I'm not at all paranoid. Ever.Wink)

I'm jus going to ignore it. I'm sure it'll unstick itself eventually!

I had this problem years ago [In reply to] Can't Post

And, for the life of me, I can't remember how I got rid of it, but it did go away eventually. If I remember what I did, or what happened to make it go away, I'll let you know. I'll also ask B.G. when I get home from work.

One more thing you could try is to download another internet browser, such as Chrome, or Firefox, or whatever you're not using now to log in or, better yet, use someones else's computer to log in and see if it's still there.
