I've noticed the noise you guys are talking about. Typically, that noise happens when you lose connection or haven't been on the forum for awhile. I have the noise happen whenever my internet goes down. Thankfully, the noises from mChat can be disabled!

I think I hear this sound when I'm on mobile, usually it's when I haven't been actively on the forum for awhile but have it tabbed?

I'll check into some of the other features, but as far as I know currently, only MChat has a sound feature. Just to double check, I'll ask that everyone disables the sound for Mchat, and if they continue to hear the sound, it's definitely something else.

As for the MChat not having new chats, I'll check into that as well and see why it's giving a notification sound when no new chats are displaying.

I'm pretty sure it's coming from the mChat since the tab will also say something like "new message" but then there's no new message
I think the forum just gets lonely

it's the DC (perhaps even inactivity) noise 1000000% confirmed

there are no other mods on this forum with sound and plus my Net is shit and I just got it like 5 times in a row.

That would explain why I hear it mainly when I'm working if it is indeed an inactivity/DCing noise. I leave my PC running idle as I work and that is the only time I've ever heard the noise.
