It's currently just... ugh, unpleasant. And not like a "ping" at all. Can haz change to normal pling sound from SO?

  • It'd be great if the anime & manga site could have someone going 'Kawaii~!" or "Neee~?", more suitably: "Kora!" (Hey!) hahaha ;)

Sorry, all sites that have a chat.stackexchange.com home URL have that noise.

There are userscripts to change it that you can install on your browser (see StackApps.) or you can mute all sounds from the chatroom and, instead, rely on desktop notifications.

To turn off all sounds in a chatroom, just click the speaker icon next to the chatroom name.


  • Is that to distinguish them from the "proper" site chats? I think I may just open up a topic on meta.SO...

  • @Xeo Only Stack Overflow and Meta Stack Overflow have their own chat servers. All the other sites in the network have their chatrooms hosted on chat.stackexchange.com
