How about a self refreshing notification area with a beep soud?

When I'm very active in other sites, testing or researching to solve questions, I miss some notifications from the network (I have questions and answers in more than 1 site).

I think its considerable to have notifications self updating at a 1 or 2 minutes rate and play a sound if there're some new notifications. With a setting to enable this feature for the one's that require it, of course.

Something like Facebook implemented a time ago would, but with na opt-in option as I've said above.

Use the StackExchange API and then show us how cool it is, sound beeping would annoy me, task bar notification maybe not so much.

Lets see if there're some people that think it's a good idea. Anyway, that was the reason I've stated a setting to ENABLE this feature for those who may want. –  rcdmk Dec 18 '11 at 0:39
I would very much like a sound notification because I always interrupt my programming to come in and check for new answers. If there was a sound notification I would be programming peacefully knowing that I will not miss anything and not have to check every 5 minutes :) –  J. K. Feb 16 at 15:38
I know this is a bit old, but saing "Do it yourself" wont help new ideas to come. Besides, the suggestion included an opt-in feature. –  rcdmk Feb 19 at 12:27
@rcdmk Dont get me wrong, I too welcome MSO getting new feature requests and people submitting their idea's. I wanted my answer to encourage you to show us how cool the concept would be by referring you to the API. Also I didn't downvote the you. I was mearly saying this can be done using the API. Who knows the you could make a tiny bit of cash doing it. –  Jeremy Thompson Feb 19 at 13:05
@JeremyThompson If it's that so I've got you wrong. Not a problem, man. Sorry. –  rcdmk Feb 19 at 18:48
