What would the alerts be for?

Why would they not appear in the Alerts menu along with all other alerts?

It requires an add-on, but I believe there was a change in version 1.1.4 (or maybe upcoming in 1.2) that would allow add-on developers to basically hook alert style badges in to navigation tabs.

Good suggestion for the core Resource Manager though, to be fair.

I have to religiously check RM for new releases, whereas if there was an alert counter it would be much easier :)

I guess it's possible to do that too but my thought process is that if you want to notify your community specifically that a new resource was posted it would be nice if the alert indication showed up over the Resource link in the navigation.

Agreed, I am looking to simplify my notification that someone posted a resource so that I can check it out etc...
