    Obviously that is not correct, and I only had 2 private messages. I believe it showed 2 originally, then after viewing them I got 65535.

    The number you linked went to Wikipedia

    Could that have anything to do with it o_O ?
    Probably just a small glitch in the PHP code somewhere.

    Yes, I'm sure they are related somehow. Since nobody else is seeing it it may be specific to my account, but I have confirmed that it still exists on 3 different browsers on 2 different operating systems.

    Historically....

    It's also probably the amount of memory in a Commodore 64, expressed in bits, er I mean bytes (!) or (?) as befits the situation.

    It is fixed now. After still reporting that today I thought maybe clearing out all my messages would fix it, thinking if I could get the actual messages down to 0 it might notice and display properly.

    I deleted the first page of messages (from Inbox) and it reset it to no new messages.

    Good to hear it's fixed. I tried a couple of things on my end but I think those didn't work... I didn't go into it too deeply before you got it fixed though.
