I got the message "new stuff, come see!" that y'all auto-loaded to every user talk page. I dismissed it. Now I keep getting the "You have new messages" bar for every single window I open. Using Monobook. Janze-Nek 17:56, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

  • That happens sometimes. You can try clearing your cache and see if it goes away. If it doesn't, then the only thing you can really do is be patient until it goes away on its own. - Brandon Rhea (talk) 17:59, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
The message you received was send using SWM. This sometimes occurs. As Brandon said, just clear your cache, though it usually takes some time to go away. If it doesn't go away after a few days, please contact Wikia Staff. See bottom. Mark (Talk) • (Contribs) 18:03, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
This has been reported to the tech folks; they're working on it! Sorry for the inconvenience. -- Danny@fandom (talk) 18:09, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Aiaiai. Well, better than what I thought had happened. I thought I might've been hacked or somethin! However, I was never eactly clear on "cashe"; could someone clear that up for me?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 18:40, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

It's cache and perticularly, in this case, it's browser cache.
In the setting of the browser there's usully a way to do this. — TulipVorlax 23:44, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
Janze-nek, here's what happened. We had issues with the system-wide talk page message (it did not display) a few weeks ago and we thought we had fixed the bug. Unfortunately, we clearly only fixed half of it. We got the message to display but we could not get the "new messages" bar to go away. We will, of course, try to figure out what exactly happened this go-round. --DaNASCAT 23:58, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
