(This is my first suggestion!)
I didn't find this anywhere, so I hope this hasn't already been suggested.

Many a times I get distracted doing something else in another tab and somebody sends me a palpad message. However, by the time I find out, the other person has gone offline.
So I was thinking that every time someone sends a palpad message a little sound comes to notify you.
Of course this sound can be muted in the Settings and maybe in the palpad side bar too, if it's not too much of a hassle.

Full support! Sometimes that happens to me and they get mad thinking I don't want to answer

I like it. Not a too loud sound.

I could not find the link but I am positive I made it. I am kind of glad that people like this then considering this relates to my suggestion

edit:when I made the suggestion they said no support because it would lag so much

You already get the "[NEW]" in the title of the tab. I think if you check your tabs enough, you should notice it.

ptoung: your post as it is now holds little to no comprehensibility in terms of saying that this is the same suggestion, so it's not even really relevant, please quit pointing people to it as it's only insanely confusing

Lol. Trying to use my no-support post in your thread for battle effects and music (which is supposed to loop, which is nearly impossible to get to work across all browsers) for a reason to not accept a notification sound for the palpad is rather sad, in my honest opinion.

That said, I support this idea. That's the main thing I use the Pokéheroes Messenger app for, as I have it set to notify me all the time. So when I'm not paying attention on here, it will tell me when there's a new message. (I also use it when away from the computer to chat to friends, but that's something else)

My thing is I think we should be able to chose what sound to use for a notification. I say this because there's a LOT of "notification" sounds that actually hurt my ears due to the pitch of them. (I have sensitive ears, so I know it's a personal problem, and if it's a sound on here that hurts my ears, I could just disable the notification sound from the browser and keep using the messenger, but I figured I'd add it anyways)

@Diana, True that a "[NEW]" appears in the tab, but like I said, people can get distracted that hey don't notice it. Like when playing a game or watching a video.

@Navuso, changing the sound seems like a very trivial matter. The main purpose is to notify the person that some one is talking to them. But I see where you're coming from with the high pitch. The volume should be low and ,if possible, adjustable by the user.

I agree with Navuso. But I really can only see this useful for the messenger app. Everyone mostly has their phone (or whatever device used for the app) near them, so it would make more sense, since most apps and such have the ability to send an alert or make a noise once you get a notification.

What Diana said is true, and I agree with that. If you are distracted by something else, like what you listed, I'm not sure a little noise from the site would really help :p If you were in a different tab, or just wanted to take a quick glance, I'd say the [NEW] that is visible on the top of the page/tab, would be the best way to let you know that you have a message.

Or, if this was implemented, let's say, I would like to have the option to turn the sound off. Usually, if I'm already in a conversation with someone on here on the PalPad, I'm close to whatever device I'm using to get online. But if I'm not by it, then I'd just get to the message later when I have time to, that is.

And one more thing I just though of: Wouldn't it get rather annoying if you kept on getting messages over and over from people and it kept making noise to alert you of it? I think this would be a downside of it.

So for me, I'm neutral on this suggestion. It wouldn't really have any use for me ^^;

@Doopliss The sound will be loud enough to catch someone's attention and like I said, people might get distracted and forget to check for the [NEW] sign. However, a sound should be able to catch their attention.
Also, I stated that people will be able to mute the sound in their settings and/or in the palpad side-menu in case they don't like the sound or are already in a conversation.

I think I asked Riako once if it's possible to add similar-to-facebook chatting sounds, but he said it isn't needed because of what Diana has said.

I, myself, wouldn't use this. Kinda annoying.

Full support from me too! I am one of those people that get distracted pretty easily so I often don't see [NEW] in time - especially when people are like: "I sent you a battle request/offered on your pokemon in the GTS and you didn't accept?! I did that _____ minutes ago you hate me!" or something along those lines - and it gets really really annoying after a while :( So this would be really helpful.
