Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I like the Star-Trek-esque beedeebeeboop as a chat notification on http://chat.meta.stackoverflow.com/ far more so than the fart/raspberry noise that http://chat.stackexchange.com/ uses. It is much more audible over my music and occasional gastric distress.

Can StackExchange just rip off MSO (or either of the SU/SF sounds Mike linked)?

+1 for the onomatopoeia - beedeebeeboop – jadarnel27 Jan 16 '12 at 21:23
+1, but isn't it rather a beedeeboop? (leaving to check) – Pëkka Jan 16 '12 at 21:32
There's no one in right now. Rats. – Pëkka Jan 16 '12 at 21:34
@Pekka You can ping yourself. – John Jan 16 '12 at 23:30
It seems like a stretch to call the chat.SE notification a "fart"... – David Z Jan 17 '12 at 2:46
Chat.SE's ping sound is the only thing in the Stack Exchange network that reminds me of Windows 3.1... – Yannis Jan 17 '12 at 3:23
+1 for legitimate use of "fart" on StackExchange – swasheck Jul 23 '14 at 20:45

For reference, chat.SE versus chat.MSO. The ones from chat.SU and chat.SF are still available from when those existed as well -- personally I like chat.SF the most, then chat.SU, then chat.SE. chat.MSO's is too long

Thanks for this. Conclusion: I think it's more a beedeebooboop. – Pëkka Jan 16 '12 at 22:01
The links are dead. Welp, cannot understand what they meant by beedeebooboop... – Andrew T. Nov 29 '14 at 17:34
