Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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, 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... – bacon Nov 29 '14 at 17:34
