    Sometimes, when there are no new posts, the New Posts notification shows 1 new post. When you click it, you get the "No New Posts" screen. Happened just now, 9:15.

    It's because it knows you were getting ready to post this new post, so it is just trying to stay ahead in the game.

    Not a bug, it's a feature. :)

    Sometimes I'll get a bunch of new post alerts coming through via the app after I've viewed them via the web.

    It's now showing 2 when there are none. I've logged off and logged back in a few times today, but those 2 are still there.

    Maybe you should start taking your meds again.

    I don't think the boss has been around for a while...

    He's probably too busy playing hockey to babysit you.

    Unfortunately I can only edit the style of the alert (color, font...) I have no control over what it displays. I can't even clear it out. I can disable it, but that would be global and everyone would lose their new post alerts.

    Clear your cache, maybe?
