    I too got it, and have forwarded the message on to the Community Manager.

      I did the same.  I wonder how many others will get this?

        I never got this message but my communications page has had 1 message listed as unread that I have never been able to find. If that was it, I'm glad I couldn't find it. I finally selected the 'mark all as read button' and the next day it came back with 1 message unread again so I did the same. Hmmmm.....

          Tef,

           

          That is strange.  Any way the manager is on it.  It appears that the 2 of us were the only ones to get this one.  I hope that they can filter, without interferring with privacy,  through private messages to stop this.

          Tef,

          These didn't show up in the Communications, but in our own profile "Private Messages" area.  I saw that myself,Californian, and 2 others were on the list, but I don't know how they targeted just 4 IDs.

                    I wouldn't at this point in time. It's probably just a flukie thing and the CM is checking into it and I'm sure he'll get back to you. I doubt that the person who sent it even knows who you are. Random pick, or.......

                        Thanx,

                         

                        Do you think this person is a marriott employee?

                         

                        I looked up the name, and its a fairly new person with only a couple of posts.

                         

                        Who would come in new to a blog and play hall monitor?

                          Who knows!  It creates an uncomfortable situation when we get these messages.

                            guess I have lived too long in the NYC area

                             

                            when someone gets confrontational, and it affects me, I tend not to back down.

                             

                            especially if I see nothing of value in their view point.

          tef,

           

          I get the mystery numbers by "Communications" a lot.  It turned out it has something to do with "Ideas". I exchanged a few messages with the Comm Mgr on this. Jasper's specific "Ideas" are most prone. 

           

          The bottom line is when someone votes up or down on an "Idea" that you have also voted or commented on....it will light up as a "Communication". When they just vote and not leave a comment, it will show as a Communication but will not highlight it for you.  Not sure why, but this is what I've been able to drill it down to...

           

          You can clear, like you did, or open up "Ideas"...click to open the most recent, in order. You'll eventually find the one or two that have caused the problem. Your Communication number will reduce whenever you hit the ones in question.

            I too have been having the problem with communication notifications that I cannot "find."  Thanks for solving that mystery, Pained, and thanks to Tef for pointing out that one can just 'mark all as read.'  Very helpful.

            I did not know that! Thanks so much for the info! I was thinking there were 'gremlins' in here somewhere. I'll check it that way next time it happens and I can't clear the Communications.

    Thanks everyone - this situation is under control. To minimize these circumstances, we'll be removing the private message feature in favor of tighter controls for receiving Direct Messages (that you set in your own preferences). The community’s next maintenance release is about simplicity and control

                I am with you.  I would if I knew how to do it.  We should shut down discussions that are resolved.

          Or CommunityManager is probably sysadmin and can close it

              maybe you didn't open it as a question.

               

              when you open a discussion thread, there is an option to make it a question.

               

              When you do this, you can mark 2 responders as having useful answers, and you can also say the question has been answered

               

              But not every discussion created is a question unless designated
