    I know this is possible as I saw this implented on another server.
    My suggestion is that whenever someone says your full in-game name, your name in chat would turn a certain colour and would make a noise like "plop". The sound it makes when someone messages you. I don't know whether it should be for everyone or not. But definitely applies to staff members, in case they don't see someone seeking help in chat.

    Let me know what you think and whether it should be just for staff members or everyone. :]

    This would be so helpful! When players are constantly chatting in chat they promote a kind of problem for the mods to see a palyer in need of help! This is an awesome idea. This should be for everyone

    I have my sounds off. I hate sounds on mc.
    I see this being a nuisance. Chat has enough colour as it is. It seems like it would be no different to a donor using colour, which can still be missed if you didn't have sounds on. If the text is highlighted, like minechat, then maybe.
    Plus not many people use a mods full ign. Majority of the staff have nicknames. I get called Krissy not Krissy_x.
    And honestly when I get on I get a lot of people needing me. Having things light up at me in chat isn't going to make me go and help someone when i'm very busy.
    Then there is the abuse capability that people can say a mods name just for the noise and colour it makes, essentially making it a big joke and staff don't know who really needs help anymore and who is time wasting.

    I think its an idea that means well but if implemented will make things worse for staff.

    As much as it could be useful, I have to agree with Krissy on this.

    This is on mcp* and it's good for me since I ignore the chat sometimes there, so support.

    A different server (which i main [Im assuming you know which, krissy]) has it so that if you're tabbed out of minecraft (as in on google or such) it will do it, and not when you have mc as your active tab.

    also if you have sounds off, why dont you adjust them all to 0% and have noteblocks/jukeboxes at 100% because that'd be the setting needed. people can tab the mods's ign, and cyp could probably set up a submission for each mod with each 'nick' each mod gets called alot. it just would overall make it easier in my opinion.

    not trying to attack you krissy but saying sounds are a nuisance to justify this not being added is kinda ehh.

    I mean if a server with 700+ has this and they have no problems with it I don't see why we can't with a base of 100.
