Ding ding ding..

It is great to have the Chat back. Many people seem to sign in to it and then go off to the forums. They fill the chat access lines (max of about 7 at a time??) but don't contribute. They probably aren't even following it, but their signing in keeps others (possibly) from participating. If there was a sound signal when someone posted to the chat, (a ding, a chirp, a swoosh....) it would alert people who might have signed on to it and were waiting for another "chatter" to show up that they should open it back up and participate. If people were signed in and not participating, the "dings" (or other sound) would help to get them to either sign off or participate - improving the experience for everyone. Is there a way to somehow add a noise?
