The first image shows me hovering over the PM icon and it's saying I have no unread PMs.

The second image shows what my unread PMs page looks like.

Says I have 86 messages. I tried to mark everything as read, but that did nothing.

Just want to throw an agree in here as I have 197 unread messages. I think it was around 20 before the switch.

Yeah, this seems to be affecting everyone. We probably won't get a fix until at least tomorrow as the last engineer has already left the office.

Duders... I don't think it's your inbox... it's your outbox !

Said i had 4 unread messages... I looked in my outbox and there was 4 messages in bold... i clicked one and the count went down to 3

Deleted my entire outbox and now i have 0 unread

It's not my outbox, my outbox is empty, but I have 11 messages of the same.

Checking in to make sure that I'm still not the only person with this problem. Still listed as 25 unread messages for me.

Not my outbox either. In fact, my outbox wasn't even imported from the old site. It's only got things since the launch of the new site.

Yes! This worked for me. I think it has something to do with the first version of the site back when you had to request people to be your "friend" instead of just following them. To fix it I went to my outbox and went to the last page and there were all the unread messages, some guide requests I sent and some friend requests. I hope this helps the rest of you duders!

This didn't work for me. Then again I have about 80,000 private messages and I'm not about to sort through them all looking for the unread ones...the unread button returns zero results.

Same problem here minus the 80k messages, naturally.

@jareda: No worries, duder. If it works for you then that's awesome. It seems like they have a lot to fix so I guess it's just a question of when. Not too long before they fix it, hopefully.

I feel like this has been an issue that has been going on for awhile because I had a similar problem a few years back, guess its still a problem even after the redesign.

This needs to be fixed! It says I have one unread message, but I have none.
Every time I log in here, I feel popular, but then BAM! Forever alone guy meets reality, yet again.

I've seen this same issue come up in multiple threads, but this looks like the oldest, so I'll make my post here.

I've had 25 unread messages since the site relaunch. I didn't see this error in the site preview, and it wasn't an issue in the old site. I've went through and marked all messages (inbox and outbox) as unread and then read, but I'm still showing 25 unread. The unread section of my PM box is empty, despite the number staying at 25. This issue is consistent across other browsers and platforms after clearing cookies and cache.

This is obviously in no way an urgent issue, but as this has been going on for a while, I thought I'd report what I tried to do to resolve it.

Ditto. 15 messages in my case. Tried the suggestions here and nothing worked. Bummer.

Ever since the redesign launched I've had 103 unread PM's. They might be somewhere in my inbox, who knows, it seems that the "Select" drop down menu options only select messages from the page I'm viewing (even when I go "Select > All").
