Half the times that I visit this site, I see the little exclamation point by my profile. Excited by the idea that someone might have actually wanted to talk to me, I quickly proceed to investigate, only to discover that it's just another update on Prediction League rounds. Saddened, I then proceed to my room and sob bitterly for an hour. ...Okay that last part might have been an exaggeration, but it has become a minor source of annoyance for me. Enough at this point for me to want to write this post anyway.
I have no idea why the forum just presumes that I care about the Prediction League, being as I have never participated in it, can't even decipher how it works, and have less than no spare money to bet on anything with besides. However I got in though, I would prefer to be removed from whatever program is sending me these notifications. I really would like for that little exclamation point by my profile to always indicate that someone has contacted me in some way if that's possible. How would I go about making it so, as Captain Picard would say?
