*Tizzymakes mink his main ho!!*

Is there a visual alert or audio alert to make this less likely (other than use a PM/Thread)? Does @PsychMink work?


Have you made the effort to listen to your subconscious today? 'Your sake' breakz are as amazing as line times or pin mins.

Yes there is a speaker icon just above where you input text which brings a volume slider up. Adjust thwet and a paing will denote when some has sent you a ting.

It seems to 'ting' whenever any and every 'ting gets posted :|

Yes whenpeople are PMing it pings even when it's not being PMed to you but after renton broke the original shoutbox and so had to  create the new rubiks shout cube with all the new security features to stop any and everyone getting in and using it he decided he' do everything he could to annoy the life out of all who use it forevermore, at times when he isn't here to throw around  put you in your place with his razor sharp put downs in questionable English.

Good question, but I only put it in shoutbox because you were there a second ago & thought you'd see it, otherwise I'd have pm'd it to you. Laziness triumphed over certainty I'm afraid.

A sub use case would be User'S' that leaves the shoutbox open but in the background infrequently monitored e.g. because it was quiet at that point, they're playing a game or they've fallen asleep. The same functionality would allow me to get their attention like so:

Quote:[31/07 11:12 PM]PsychMink:Oi @Stephen!
[31/07 11:12 PM]PsychMink:Oi @Stephen!
[31/07 11:12 PM]PsychMink:Oi @Stephen!
[31/07 11:12 PM]PsychMink:Oi @Stephen!
[31/07 11:12 PM]PsychMink:Oi @Stephen!
[31/07 11:12 PM]PsychMink:Oi @Stephen!
[31/07 11:12 PM]PsychMink:Oi @Stephen!

Actually multiple @s per line should be supported to reduce the impact on the shoutbox for other users:

Quote:[31/07 11:12 PM]PsychMink:Oi @Stephen! Oi @Stephen! Oi @Stephen! Oi @Stephen! Oi @Stephen! Oi @Stephen! Oi @Stephen!

Proper "Beep" functionality so I can play notes, and hence the Pet Shop Boys "Insuburbia" like I did on the BBC Micro at primary school, are a bit off scope so I'll leave it for another feature request.
