I’ve never seen anything like this: twenty notifications in the twelve hours since my last visit to this forum. For those who don’t know, the notification count is displayed on my avatar at the top right of the web page:
All twenty notifications where for the same activity:
Earned ‘Nice Share’
Clicking on my avatar highlights the unread notifications with a blue background:
The badge is specifically awarded for
sharing a link that was clicked by 25 outside visitors
They were all for links in different posts so it looks like a group of “outside users” traversed the topics, posts and links. Maybe they were all robots?
Other reasons why these twenty noficiations for the same badge stand out:
- My badge count for ‘Nice share’ more than doubled to thirty-six.
- All were awarded within an hour of each other.
- Ken_GlassWire only has three ‘Nice Share’ badges. Why am I getting so many more? Normally he has more of other badges, e.g. twenty-seven for ‘Popular Link’ whereas I have none.
What indicates this is not a bug:
- GlassWire features appear to be working fine
- The badges were awarded for links that had not received that award before.
