uhhhh i can't be positive it's coming from the forum but whenever i have the forum open and tab away, sometimes, randomly i hear a sound like

"DUUU DUM"

and a little sound symbol pops up on the tab but not any other tabs...

is this happening to anyone else? is it a notification sound that's new?
is there a way to turn it off cause it's really annoying LOL

oh yeah and it's not the same notification sound as a new message on the forum chat which is what i thought it was at first

the notifications on the forums don't have sound

it has to be the chat

Mchat has a sound, I believe. It's probably that.

even when nothing new has been said on the chat? @Bodach
the bell doesn't get new notifs when i hear the sound @Alpen

it's weird, i've heard it maybe 5 times today and yesterday twice

actually thinking about it, does the chat ever make sounds? when losing chat connection?
still wouldn't explain why the sound icon shows on the forum tab but not the chat tab though

I'm talking about mchat, but yes, chat has sounds that you can opt into.. they're obvious though

oh yes, i knew you meant mchat but that reminded me about the actual wh chat :)
i'm gonna turn off the sounds over there, maybe that's what it is then. just weird that i've never heard anything up until now

BTW you can turn the sound off by going to your user control panel, then clicking 'mchat' and pressing 'no' for enabling sound.
