Today, I finally found out why most of the messages in my inbox were not being shown and why, additionally, some of my visitors weren't showing, even though there was a little number showing the number of visitors. It's because I was "hiding" those people.

I didn't think that by clicking on "hide", that Okc wouldn't even show me the messages. I guess "hide" is the same as an "ignore" feature. So, since I have the habit of hiding the profiles I message so that they don't show up again when/if I'm searching for new matches, I was unaware that I was also hiding the new messages and the profile visits.

So there it is for all the other people who were having the same problem and didn't understand why.

Kair, I hide a lot of people, particularly the repetitive visitors who never message, so I've always assumed that my numbers of visitors didn't account for anonymous stalkers and those I've hidden. 

But how did you find out that you had hidden messages from hidden users?

messages from hidden users will still show up in your inbox, but you will not get the notifications (red highlighted number, or the email message notification)

Through my constant mental state of investigation :)

Today I was just going through my visitors and I realized that some of them were showing and other wasn't. Then I clicked on one of the girls who had visited me, I read her profile, I concluded I wasn't interested and as I usually did, I hid her profile.

Then something hit me. I went back to the visitor's page and she was no longer there!

I immediately drew a connection and decided to check my inbox and VOILA! Two new messages I had never been notified of, both of them almost a week old. I clicked on the profiles and indeed, they were all "hidden". I clicked on the profile of a person who messaged me and whose messages I do get a notification from and, as it was to be expected, she wasn't hidden.

And so, I cracked the case :)

Except on OKC. On here, it's a great idea. Next!

Sometimes a person replies to you and then, additionally, they write another follow-up message. So it could be just that.

Oh, I get it. I guess I've never had a back-up of messages because I get a few every day, so I'm always checking my inbox.

A related question; quite often the panel will show that I have some number of new visitors, but when I check my visitors' page, the number of recorded visitors doesn't match. I have very few people on Hide, so I don't think they can account for all the "missing" visitors; I've been assuming that OKC will increase the number when an anonymous browser hits my profile, without adding them to the list. Does anyone know if that's correct?

^Yes, that's it. Except I have a lot of frequent visitors on hide so it always shows I had more visitors than new photos. One time I had  a visitor announcement show up on my screen, but when I went to check on the info on him, he wasn't there. I thought that was pretty odd.

Now that's... just like something taken out of a horror movie

Longstanding bug, from what I can tell.

Either that or they consider it a feature...
