Moderator-only tool that pings a user in a chatroom even if they can't be invited there, or don't have a chat profile.

The Super Ping, not to be confused with The Super Pringles (a short-lived in-commercial band whose infighting over the direction Julius Pringles wanted to take their creative endeavour saw their once promising careers dive into the chip basket), is a chat function available to moderators to summon a Stack Exchange user into a chat room.

There are limitations on the use of the super ping and includes:

  • cannot call a user into a room they do not have access to (private rooms)
  • not being able to summon the dead

It is also known by the stylised "superping" whose typographical appearance depends on how much space you have in your life.
