New Feature: Customize your Notification Sound!

Recommended Posts


Why choose one when you can have them all? With this feature we really don't even have to worry about copyright etc., as the notification sounds can now be customized at the individual level. I've added a new default "coin" sound, and you (yes, you!) can change the sound to whatever you want if you prefer a different sound!

Just go to the "Manage Notification Sound" link in the main navigation and you can upload any file you like:



You can also go to any user's profile page (including your own) to see what notification sound they are using:



If you click the 3 dots to the right of the audio player, you can download the file that user is using, and use it yourself!

I WILL caution that if you choose to use something blatantly inappropriate, it will be removed if reported as well as your ability to customize your sounds. Use your best judgement in this regard.

If you have any questions or run into any issues, let us know in this thread.

A little trial and error stuff here........

@ZeldaFreak and myself have been tinkering with this.......

I did not change mine yet.....He and I were messing around on pm's to see if it were changed, would it go back to the coin sound......this is all for me.

When we were pm'ing back and forth, no ping sounds, when I got pinged in a club thread i did get the sound......but not during pm's 

2 questions

1)  does it revert back if i delete the mp3 from my notification thingy in my profile?

2)  Why is the notification system so broken?  😛  I only kid, but is there a ruleset for how it works?  No need to go into complete details, but if zeldafreak wants to chime in with all the details he is more than welcome to.

      Customizing the way you view the forum as an individual has always been important to me (I literally make my own personal Google Chrome extensions for most of  the sites I frequent to customize how they look and behave). With that spirit in mind, we're continuing to add features to let you choose what you can see and how you see it, and today that comes in the form of the ability to just straight up ignore stuff.

      I'm gonna... switch around the buttons. Looks kinda odd having them in different order for forum vs threads.
      Anywho, if you go into a forum, you should now see a nice big red button which lets you ignore the ENTIRE FORUM. This will make it so ANY threads within this forum will NO LONGER SHOW UP for you in your activity feed, in your searches, or even AT ALL while browsing the forum. It'll be wholesale GONE for you. Same with Topics/threads.
      Are you a homebrewer that really only cares about that section of the site and NOTHING ELSE!?!? Well, I'm kinda sad about it, but hey feel free to ignore every other section of the site and BOOM - now you'll only ever see stuff you're actually interested in. Same w/ the collectors and the players - really customize to your liking. Sick of seeing political posts? Ignore em!
      OH NO! I accidentally Ignored a forum/thread and now it's GONE! How do I get it back!?!?
      Simple! Head over to your Account Settings, and you will see options for the topics and forums that you've ignored:

      As you can see above, I am ignoring Suggestions & Feedback. Typical!
      Luckily, I can click on the "Stop Ignoring" button to see all your lovely comments about the site not working or whatever. Great.
      One caveat - You are not able to Ignore the Announcements section of the site. It's important that we be able to communicate with you all when the need arises, so no ignoring that, ok? (Also, the Staff can't ignore the Staff section! Get back to work!)
      I hope this helps you to keep using the site in a way that suits your needs! Thanks again for your continued support!

      Hey all! You can really thank the ongoing Werewolf game for this one:

      This new feature will isolate out JUST the posts made by the specific user, for the thread you are currently in. Handy!
