Better Alert System

An Idea

I'm not too sure if this was already addressed or there's already a way to do this but I find that when I get alerts (the yellow hazard sign with the exclamation mark) I find that I don't actually see that it's showing pending notifications until I look at it and see a bar next to it.

I think there should be a square glowing, maybe pulsing halo, or something that fits the shape of the alert icon around it that's colored based on a user's profile, since I've seen profiles with different looks and colors and more. For default profiles or other parts of the site it should glow yellow. This would help in discovering when alerts are waiting to be seen and addressed by a user.

The reason why I ask for this is because the glowing pulsing halo will be easier to see in the corner of a user's eye. Maybe it's just a "me" problem but I feel like it would be quite helpful.
