|Sound alerts on chat? [message #15630] Wed, 04 August 2010 22:38 UTC
I don't know how customisable the chat window is, but I thought it could be very handy to include sound alerts for when users log in, and possible even when they post. |
Obviously this wouldn't be so useful during live casts when the chat's particularly active. But the rest of the time there's often someone (probably including me ) logged in with no-one else around, so naturally in these instances I tend to potter around the internet in other windows, and work on other programs. After a little while I'll check the chat window again only to find that's someone's been in there briefly, said 'hello', and then disappeared again when they haven't got an answer.
I know you receive a 'nudge' if someone types your current username, and that can be handy, but not many other people know about this, and so they turn up, see a couple of people logged in, but not get any response when they speak.
