I'm just going to say it. I don't like the way notifications are now. It used to be, you'd log on and you'd have a number above the bell icon telling you how many new notifications you have. Once you looked at the list of new notifications, that number would disappear until you got a new notification. Now, the number above the bell icon flashes a number, like you have notifications (I guess notifications you haven't marked as read) but then disappears. This happens every time you refresh the page or go to another thread or sub-forum. You shouldn't have to manually mark each one as read. It's annoying and not an improvement.
