I like it. Though while we're on the subject, I always wondered how to cause the notification alert to appear as 'read'?
Even if I click on the links in the notification, multiple times even, I still tend to see the notification alert for days/weeks.
Is that just on my end, or is this something other people are experiencing?
They don't seem to go away if you look at notifications on the Buddy Menu. If, on the other hand, you use the drop-down on your avatar and click "Notifications", they'll clear after you visit that page...
