So, in the attached picture, a new (clickable) message counter has shown up. Now we don't have PM functionality on this forum, so I'm wondering what this is for?
Mine has always been at 0 since it showed up, so I haven't been able to go anywhere by clicking on it.

Anyone know?

I just noticed this today myself. But I'm not seeing any method to send a message, is the counter going up for you now that we've bien responding to your post?

/thoroughly off topic...

Oooh I love the little mistakes non-native speakers make (English is my second language too).
This reminds me of a story I once read: a young English speaking couple was invited to meet everybody in the neighborhood in their brand new country, it was a large party. The lady sat down on a chair, but it broke... she was not hurt but wanted to say something. So, in her new language, she tried to say "oh I'm so very embarrassed!"
Suddenly everybody was running, screaming, rushing to help her, a huge commotion...
It turned out she had said "oh, I'm so very PREGNANT!"

This was your Friday morning smile :)

@Curtules: I thought so at first, but it's been steady at 0 since I noticed it. Granted, I check my reply notifications via email...

@Sophia.... wut? just...wut? lol

Yep, it's definitely not a notifications counter. I have had a few replies today to topics, but that thing is still stuck at zero. I think it's probably a PM Inbox counter from GetSat that Koodo hasn't subscribed to... So the functionality isn't available, but the counter slipped through the cracks and got left behind

It's not from Get Satisfaction (I work there). Looks to me like a Badgeville thing?

I don't think it's a badge ville thing unless they haven't started using it quite yet because I'm done the badge ville game and my counter is at 0 like those who haven't finished the game yet.

If you click on it, you'll see that it's for messages, so it's not from GS, and the class of that span has "bv" in it for "Badgeville" (".bv_playerMeta .bv_clickable.bv_notificationsCount"). They must be implementing something new. I don't know if the messages are from Badgeville or from Badgeville users. I wonder how to send the messages?

Whoa, talk about delving deep into the coding, Michelle. It could very well be a new messaging system from Badgeville that just hasn't been set up, yet. Fair enough. We'll wait and see.

Hey folks, I've forwarded the question off and I'm waiting on a reply, but I won't get one until after the weekend.

That's too long a wait, Myke! We need answers now! This is a matter of international security! It could be the key to preventing a Zombie Apocalypse man! :P

That counter is gone now, just must have been mistakenly placed there.
