PM Notifications

I noticed that when I get a PM it comes up by the mail symbol for the PMs, where there is a [1] and in the notifications list. Why is this?

Because that's how the software is written.

I would say not. It's hard-coded into the forum software. Does it really matter to you?

If it didn't do that, how would you know if you had a PM?

So, hang on.

When you have a PM, are you saying that there is a [1] next to "Private messages) and a [1] next to "Notifications"?

To be fair, you'd think most people would actually try the settings before asking if there's a setting for it ... :roll:
