No matter how many times I shut off the chat beep, once I've returned to the site, it is automatically returned to enabled and full blast volume.
Is there a way to permanently disable it on an individual basis? I don't want to disable it for members, but it is extremely annoying to have to manually turn down the volume every single day, or to suddenly find that your computer is making an insane amount of noise at the most unexpected and inappropriate times due to a burst of conversation.
Any ideas or information would be greatly appreciated.
Yes there is But not for individual. For everyone just download The no sound chat.mp3 and Upload it as your custom sound In your chat settings.
have a great day
Or just to make it quieter use this MP3
Winning workaround, George!
Thank you Eric :)
Thank you, George, for taking time to try to help, but unfortunately, it's not a workaround. Removing the sound or lowering its audibility altogether isn't a workaround. I don't want to silence it for everyone, or to remove the option.
Surely there is a way to silence it on an individual basis without having to do it every single time we return. If it defaults to full-blast beeping, it can surely default to silent?
But thank you, George. That's a great idea for networks who want to remove that chat function, but I don't want to remove alerts.
I agree with your reasoning and request. I refuse to install chat unless that problem can be cured. Or if I do install chat, I will use somebody else's software.
For my scheduled chats, I use Mibbit, but members like the persistent Ning chat bar for quick communication with those who are currently online. The Ning chat room is useless for anything other than quick messages among members, so I don't have high expectations of it, but I'm surprised we are stuck with all-or-nothing when it comes to the sound returning to full-blast.
Has anyone tried this yet? It is what I was referring to:
Ohhh, very interesting! I'll check it out!
Oh, I logged in and see that I've already experimented with this. I'll try it again, though, because I can't remember why it isn't a solution for me.
Where does this get installed? I tried to create a text box for testing it, and it just loads as a big blank space. Can this be installed as a "persistent" chat, such as the Ning chat in the bottom of every page?
Well, shoot. Their site is messed up and no chat rooms can be created, so I guess the beta program has come to an end, or someone forgot about it.
