Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Sometimes on chat I set it to play an audio notification upon a message being posted (not just a message with my name). This can get confusing, because I like having some kind of feedback upon a message being posted but I would like a distinction between the sounds so that I know if it was a message for me.

The way this would probably best work is to keep the noise for when a message contains your @tag and the new noise would be for any other message. This way it would be less confusing for current members of the site. Instead we could make a new noise for the any other message.

This way you can know whether there is a message in a chat and whether it is directed to you without having to check the chat window.

I didn't know it was possible to set chat to make a noise for every comment. Off to investigate. – TRiG is Timothy Richard Green Sep 19 '12 at 18:20
