If a user pings me in a chat room, I get a notification if I was active in that room in the last 7 days (is this really how it works? It is strange that this information does not appear in the FAQs...)
I am a member of a couple of chat rooms that get activity less often than that. As a result of the lack of notifications, I sometimes miss important messages related to moderation (the rooms are moderator-only and for moderation purposes. But the lack of notifications may be a problem for other kinds of low-activity rooms). I would like to be able to "follow" a specific room, so that I always get notified when someone pings me in that room. This should ideally be a private setting (such that other users do not take advantage of it to send me spam), and it should be possible to "unfollow" the room at any time.
Is there a way/workaround to enable unconditional notifications of pings from a specific chat room? If not, can we get one?
