All users who use number of unread messages as indicator whether to enter the category to read it.
On the left sidebar, where is a list of catagories, which has (after the name of the category) number of unread messages (or blank if all messages are read). However, it is sometimes shown as blank, even when there are unread messages in that category.
- open the community.openstreetmap.org
- login if not logged in already
- watch the left sidebar, and try to see if categories which have no mention of
unreadmessages in fact do contain unread messages
Correct number of unread messages show be shown, if there are unread messages.
For example, it screenshot below, you can see two unread threads/messages in
Hrvatska (Croatia) category (by TomTom), indicated by black-colored titles as unread (as opposed to grey-colored titles of threads which have been read completely).
However, on the left sidebar, after
Hrvatska (Croatia) name of category, there is just blank space, where it should be saying
2 unread instead (just as other categories show number of their unread messages)
Have other people noticed that? Is that a issue with OSM Discourse database, or a more general Discourse bug? Or some feature whose purpose is incomprehensible to me?
