That was weird! I went to Sent Messages, and as soon as I cleared the second page of them that strange number disappeared!

It is a sad day, indeed, that my 65535 Unread messages shall go forever unread, but, alas, all good things must pass...

Yes, I have been getting all PMs, for those three who have in actuality PMed me, since this oddity began.

(But this happening has had the strangest effect on my language style!)

I rushed to check my own popularity.... Sadly at 205, I am clearly unelectable....

I am now going to leave ALL my read/unread receipts there ad inf and see if that was what did it.... :D I usually clear them out like a Good Girl..... (yes yes, I said LIKE a good girl. I never ever claimed to BE one....)

Actually, KK, and seriously, Alta - how do you know ?

I will go see how many I sent you....

7. Got them ?

YAY; I made it:

65535 unread, total 79.....

I shall leave things as they are and see if I can up the number. Strange that it is the SAME number as yours, KK.

Exciting. I just got PM and now it says 65534.

ETA And as soon as I clicked to post this, it went down to 65533.

I have now become officially obsessed..... :D

Well - I didn't know how popular I was. It has gone to my head rather :|.

I still have 65533 PMs unread when I log on - and it always goes to 65534 when I start to post... It is FASCINATING !

WOW....I tried it, and it works!!!! Thanks KK! :D })

Does anyone know why this is happening? Hopefully, Solandia is aware and looking into the problem already.

No no - leave it alone !

Why is it a problem ? When you have no new ones it shows 65533; when you have one, it adds one or more, as needed. It gives me a wonderful illusion of popularity.

Please don't take it away from me..... :D

It seems like the number of unread PMs is resetting to the maximum number allowed for that database field (65536 = 64KB), instead of showing the correct amount. I'm not sure why this is happening, but I'm looking into it.

<sob> I only get one, or at the most, three, privates at a time, not five-figure numbers. Nobody loves me.

Give it time. When you have a few in there, all of a sudden.... It seems to kick in when you get to a second page or something....

averting my head from nisaba's privates.

I see someone else peeking though...

This has just happened to me, and only since I cleared out my sent items, which was the workaround suggested by Solandia. Is there anything else to do to correct 65525 PMs other than that, or am I now stuck with it? I've removed cookies too.

Edtited.... I think I found another work around. Even though my saved PMs were all read, I just marked them all as read and its now down to a nice manageable 0 again! :) Hope this helps someone else.
