I just started noticing a small number up by the pic by my user name in the upper right of the screen. It was a 1 yesterday, now it's a 2. It's not the PM indicator to the right of the user name (and I don't have any new PMs right now, I checked). What is it?

The post number of the thread.
So, you start a thread.... the number over to the right is 1
Someone responds .....the number over to the right is 2..... like the one on the right in my response
You respond back........the number over to the right is 3
And so on...

Not that number actually... kinda hard to explain. Here's a screen shot. It's the 2 inside the green circle in the far upper right, straight across from the Drumforum logo, next to my username 'hefty':

ack! really? I don't see any unread PMs. Maybe a dumb question, but how do I find unread PMs? My latest conversations all seem to be read...
