O.P. [Idea]Sound Manager
I'm not sure if this already exists or not.  My searches have come up empty.

The idea is simple, really.  I'd like to have more control of my sounds.
More specifically, I'd like to have the sign-on sound only play for certain contacts.
That way, when I'm waiting for a particular person to sign on, I don't alt+tab every time I hear the sign-on alert.
It gets annoying. =P

RE: [Idea]Sound Manager
You don't even need a script for that! :D This can be done using Plus!' Event Notifications.
  1. Open up your contact list
  2. Click the Plus! button and select Preferences & Options from the menu
  3. Go to the tab Customize (above) and then choose Event Notifications (left)
  4. Click Add to make a new event notifications
  5. Check the contacts you want the notification for and click Next
  6. Choose "User has signed in" from the list and click Next
  7. Check "Play a sound when this event occurs", browse for the sound file, set the maximum play duration and click Next
  8. Choose "This event will never expire" and click Done.
If you ever want to change or delete this event again, go back to that Preferences page, select the event and hit Edit/Delete.

I don't know whether this sound will either override or blend with the default sign-in sound from Messenger. However I think that whenever someone you selected signs in, you'll certainly here the difference. :P

I had previously looked for such an option but apparently I didn't look hard enough!
Thank you so much, this will make things a lot nicer.
