Strange thumping sound for mobile and tablet users:

If you hear a random thumping sound once every 10 seconds, you’re not going crazy, nor are you having a heart attack. That’s our website’s chatroom you’re hearing. Scroll all the way down and you’ll see it. You can turn off that sound by clicking turn off notifications or just close the chatbox entirely by tapping the X on the top right corner. Make sure to zoom all the way in on the X or else you may accidentally click the chatroom’s full screen link.

    That chat room actually forces me to go to a different page when I’m reading

    Are people that stupid

    Can’t close the chat on mobile. It just redirects me whenever I try and do something about the chat on the bottom of the page.

      I’d suggest zooming in really close at the X and tapping it. The chat’s full screen link is right under the X, which is probably why that happened. It would be worth your while to do that if you don’t want to see or hear the chat ever again XD.

        It’s really impossible
        There’s no cross to get rid of that bar.
        Also, that bar is so buggy it makes whole site stutter.

        I’m also having the same problem as M. Gendalph. Chat is not a separate box at the bottom, but rather a floating ticker across the bottom of the screen no matter where I am on the page. The only interactions with it are a word-bubble icon and a small triangle. The triangle turns the ticker on and off, but there is no way to close the chat entirely. (Which I want to do because when I get a bit to close to the bottom of the screen when scrolling, I accidentally go to the chat room, and have to click “back.” I’ve done this probably 10 times in the 100+ chapters I’ve read so far, so it’s not debilitating, but still rather annoying.)

    fell asleep while checking this site for updates on my laptop, i have this terrible nightmare that i was kidnapped by some dudes and they strapped some big ass bomb on me, and it was just seconds on exploding and it keep ticking and ticking for eternity and the dudes were staring and laughing at me, and then i woke up and i stared at my laptop and it was there! the horrible noise! it was coming from my laptop! and i was somewhat dumbfounded when i remembered the post of the strange thumping noise, i dont know whether to laugh or cry for my horrible nightmare,

    *i keep thinking that alyschu and co. were the dudes that were laughing at my misery, hahaha, just kidding

    I have the same problem with chantago on my iPhone 6 plus. Not with the sounds but with being redirected to chantago wether I’m close to the bottom of the page or not. Wether I use chrome or safari it does the same thing and there’s no way to turn it off.

      I’m looking for a way to disable the chat on mobile users. Seeing that 1/3 of our users are on mobile (google is watching) we will have to address this issue
