The notifications that won't go away are more than likely thread responses that you haven't read yet. Once you read them the notifications will go away. I had the same problem.

Have a look. It's sorted. The update has the little black dots beside them and if you scroll past them too quickly, they don't get automatically marked as 'read.' Going back through and manually clicking them fixes it.

If you click on the Mark Read button, it'll clear all the black dots and the red notification. To find that button on the phone, open up your alerts, scroll to the bottom and click Show all... That will take you to the Alerts page with the Mark Read button.

I think only the like notifications get automatically read. Ill open up my notifications, hit refresh, and the only ones remaining will be thread responses. Clicking them takes you to response, notification cleared. I don't think it matters how fast you scroll past them.

That makes sense. Kinda like how it'll stay that way when you have a PM. It's more than a notification, it's like a "Hey jackass, go look at this."

Hahaha yeah pretty much. It kinda ticks my OCD though. I think i liked it better the old way, you see the notification in your list and it clears.

I was thinking about posting something about this the other day, as I had several hundred replies following me around all the time. I did the "Mark all as read" thing to get rid of the black dots.

The only thing I haven't figured out yet, is why do I keep getting notified when new threads are started? Sometimes it is people I know starting new threads, and sometimes I have no idea who the people are starting new threads. But, it dumps them in my notification feed like someone has commented on something.

You probably have your preferences switched on to receive notifications for watched forums. I think preferences are initially switched on to receive notifications for everything but you may have started watching that particular forum by accident.
