First of all, I want to say that I contacted Soundcloud about this a year or so go, I was told they were working on it and gave me some instructions on possible solutions to do on my browser meanwhile, but this happens on any computer that I log onto. The problem isn't on my side and was never resolved.
I created my Soundcloud account a year or so as well, as soon after I created it, for some odd reason, I got a follower. The next day I noticed the same orange circle above the notifications bell, and when I clicked it, there was nothing new there, just the same follower from the previous day. I didn't think much of it, and the day after that the icon was there again. I had a second follower, so again, I didn't think much of it. But after that it appeared again, and again, and again, every day that I come on soundcloud that icon is always there, yet there is nothing whatsoever new on those notifications, only those same 2 followers that I got 9~10 months ago.
Now, I know this is something minor, but I've been starting to ignore said icon, what if something that I actually care about or is important for me pops up there? What if I ignore that thing simply because of some dumb error that isn't being fixed?
All I want is for this to be looked at, I only want that icon there when there are actually new notifications for me.
