I completely understand what you are saying and I am hoping I can communicate correctly to you. The "unread alerts" are taking a bit to be seen as "Read" and therefore the "darker shaded" alerts are actually the ones that you have already read. So, I believe the alerts are functioning correctly, just taking a longer time then we are accustomed to in order to "refresh". Again, I hope I am making sense to you and I believe that is why you are thinking that they all revert back to being "Unread"K. So Phil just posted in the rants thread. The alert popped up. I clicked the notifications and this is what I saw:

All the white ones were ones I already clicked on. I hadn't opened the rants thread yet. So I clicked on the very first notification, then went back to the alerts. Now it shows up like this:

So now Phils is in white meaing it's read. And in 30 minutes, those are all going to revert to gray as unread.
Am I making sense here? Cuz I feel like I am.
