Screenshot:
I get the same bug. The only time the "You've got news!" pops up is when someone comments on the page that the news is on though.
This is a bug that has been around for a while now, although no one has been able to find a way to reliably reproduce it.

I thought you only received those messages when the libraries / demos / games you downloaded were updated, I think it's an useless message, though. You get the same message from a New BYOND Version, from a comment... I don't really can see it's function because when you see it the first time it looks the same, try to make it display the correct text, not just that old comment x,x...
This has been around for a little over a year now and it always annoyed the hell out of me. The link doesn't even work when you click it. /:
I was going to make a new post about this but since its already one "famous"bug I ll just post it here.

Its been happening 1 o 2 times a day every couple of days. I click the news and nothing happens.
