I have great respect for the pool of experts and talent who are members of LinkedIn.
However, I find the LinkedIn interface clumsy, cumbersome, and often, wrong.
Here is a collection of errors and inconsistencies collected from LinkedIn.
Viewing Unread messages: one already read message listed as 1 -2 of 2 and with 3 showing in the tab...
This mesage won't go away from unread... 9 weeks after the original post, it is still hanging out in unread:
and once the other two messages are read - yes, they are actually two identical messages, not a LinkedIn bug THIS time -
Cannot reply to message
Got a message on Yahoo Mail, but it didn't load
So I tried to reply on LinkedIn
but I was prompted to log in
(although I was already loggged in, AND the login screen kept appearing... a sub-bug?)
and when I viewed my sent messages, the reply was not there
After posting a comment, I noticed a typo: Inida instead of India
But when I corrected it and tried to submit it, I got a login screen (although I was already logged in)
and to add insult to injury, I could neither log in nor correct the comment
has this happened to you? post a comment below
Another thing I have IN COMMON WITH MARVIN...
Reminds me of the Jimi Hendrix song If 6 were 9 - 4 actual messages listed as 9 in some places
Every time I try to view the homepage, it redirects to this Error Page after a flash of the homepage content. It seems to be caused by the InMail Notifier.
I want to update my status to:
on Share the previous status from yesterday persists and the update vanishes:
[EDIT] it showed up some time later, perhaps a caching or cron issue
People You May Know beta Doesn't Send Invitations Successfully
But if you click through to the profile you can send the invitation the normal way
and when I asked the sender about it, he said:
I replied to a request for advice about migrating a site away from the soon-to-be-discontinued iWeb service. I ticked the box to send myself a copy, and when I viewed it, the three links at the bottom were funged and two were completely broken. Huh?

Every email reader provides "next" and "prev" buttons to quickly open the next or preceding message while viewing the currently selected message, right?
I was very happy to receive an invitation to connect from former client Peg Skarrow, however I am unable to accept it from my inbox, nor on her profile page: no matter how many times I accept it keeps reappearing as if it was not accepted.
"2 days ago"
same question which I answered 11 days ago (but clarification added 2 days ago)
When I try to answer a question, I get an error message:
This has been posted as a question, but if nobody can answer questions, that may be why there are no answers...
Messages on the home page does not include "Mark Read"
However, the actual Inbox has the feature
LinkedIn says there are new colleagues from Colorfury who just joined
however, I was disappointed
LinkedIn and SEO marked by spellcheck in compose message:
You would think that LinkedIn would not underline it's own site name or a common acronym like SEO with spellcheck!
Hey where did my tweet go? (again)
I tried updating my LinkedIn status from Twitter using the #in hashtag - #fail!
LinkedIn Twitter settings:
I tried updating my status from Twitter using the #in hashtag - #fail! Tried Tweetdeck and the Twitter web site. Finally I updated on LinkedIn and the #in posted to Twitter. One way traffic!
LinkedIn added a Twitter API to update the LI status. First of all, the default setting resets the status for EVERY tweet - a stupid setting IMO. The tweet created in LinkedIn with the #in hashtag does not transfer the username:
These stats clearly show that I have 28 Best Answers in Web Development (the most on LinkedIn) - but immediately below, the graph shows 27 Best Answers out of 435.
Now with 29 Best Answers, LinkedIn's stats look correct. I'm not sure if the correction came about through the update for another answer, or through my post on LinkedIn Questions about this...
Here LinkedIn reports there are 3 new classmates from Brown University:
But there are actually only 2 new classmates when the link is followed
ok, here's another - I noticed it because I know Catherine - so I clicked on the "Be first to answer" link and found 3 other answers posted - and after I posted mine and went back to my home page, it still displayed:
