# Can this idea be materialized to a useful ad?

In the Apple.SE site, something brought my attention, it's an amazing ad that counts in real time the number of bounties on questions and their total value: https://apple.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/1882/community-promotion-ads-2014#1884

But more importantly, how could it be useful?

As usual on Meta, upvote=agree

downvote=disagree

EDIT: The ad shows excellent results for its first appearance:

• $^1$ Clicks per day: $22.56$
• Total clicks: $203$

$^1$ Which are higher than $11$ out of $12$ ads.

• This would not be useful for me. But that's just me. Dec 10 '13 at 19:37
• It quite likely could be used. I copied the source over to our 2014 Community Ads thread, and it seemed to display properly. (I didn't actually submit an answer, but the preview seemed to work fine.) Would be useful for the site? I guess that's what votes would decide. Dec 10 '13 at 19:41
• pretty cool. It also works when you put it in your "About me" section... Dec 11 '13 at 16:13

• Ye gods and little fishes but that thing is obtrusively ugly! Dec 12 '13 at 1:44
• I don't see the point. The information is not hard to obtain, and it doesn't fluctuate enough that one needs to track it minute-to-minute. So I don't understand what the ad is for, except as a technology demonstration.

• It is so large it broke my screen. Dec 17 '13 at 23:28
• @copper.hat The add works perfectly even if it is very large (see Apple.SE).

• How did you get the number of views? I think you can accept the answer... Dec 18 '13 at 20:03
