Owing to some kind of glitch it is now claimed that I have 65535 unread private messages. Anyone else getting this at the moment? :D

it's an unsigned integer glitch or some such; barry would know about it :)

No it happens from time to time though. Deleting one message I believe fixes the problem.

Edit: As Ec implies, I believe the proximal cause is trying to store -1 in an unsigned two byte data field.

It did in my case. It was sad to have to reduce my collection of antichrist gems in that way. :lol:

Deleting one message worked for me.

That's happened to me a couple of times. I cleared it by deleting my in box contents

In a doubtless similar case, spammer sambuca was recorded today as having made 4294967295 posts.

It was a busy day today with 239 total posts made (albeit inflated by one poster postwhoring) but I didn't realise it was quite that active!

that would be a cool glitch to have.
I want it.

Does anyone know any other types of glitches?

wait.
I've just realised I have the same glitch.
