I've been told that this room is haunted, but I didn't really believe it until I heard a ping (while I was in the room and another), looked everywhere, but couldn't find its origin... This happened yesterday, and today there is still no sign of any ping in my notifications inbox, so am I dealing with a real ghost here, is this just a bug that I hear a ping when nobody has pinged me, or is there another explanation for this?


I heard the ping sound, but I have checked, and I was not pinged, there is not other notification of the ping as there usually would be if I had been pinged, no sign of an edited or deleted message that pinged me, nor any notification later on in my notifications inbox. So where did the ping come from?

    Undaunted by death, I'm going to enter that room now. If I don't ever come back, tell my wife and kids (if I had any...) that I love them! – Byte Commander Nov 19 '15 at 12:48

    @rene: Everyone in that room knows, that's basically the only thing spoken about in that room... – user280862 Nov 19 '15 at 12:54

    Community has achieved consciousness. THE PING IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE ROOM! – Adam Davis Nov 19 '15 at 12:57
  • Well, you've been pinged two times yesterday, and responded to both. Did you have any other pings? – nicael Nov 19 '15 at 12:58
  • @nicael: No... And it definitely wasn't one of those... I heard a third ping... And even if they just edited their message it normally still gives me that little circle on the right of my picture to show me that I have been pinged... – user280862 Nov 19 '15 at 13:03

    I definitely heard the noise, but nobody pinged me at that time... I received a disembodied ping! – user280862 Nov 19 '15 at 13:07
  • Hm. Probably needs a poem. – nicael Nov 19 '15 at 13:11
  • @nicael: It already has one! ByteCommander wrote one here! :D – user280862 Nov 19 '15 at 13:18

    Hallucinations happen all the time. – bjb568 Nov 19 '15 at 14:19
  • @bjb568: I have a good mental history, so I doubt that it would be anything like that... More likely to be a cyber-ghost! – user280862 Nov 19 '15 at 14:21
  • Hallucinations happen to all of us, haven't you ever heard or even felt your phone buzzing when it wasn't? – bjb568 Nov 19 '15 at 14:44
