This is really random and probably will get closed fast, but how about making an SE page where we could see real time traffic on the site, animated questions/answers/comments/votes continually poping out. It would probably end up with us staring at it all the time, so maybe not the best thing...

I am aware that SE is actually tracked by Quantcast (Stack Overflow real time world map), but that is "just" traffic tracking (although very good one), this is more about something supported from the site itself (having the key events mentioned above accessible from single place). Maybe this is possible without site support through some developers API?


You can watch a real-time list of post activity (questions asked, answers posted and posts edited, as a live auto-updating list) at

  • Really nice, although the second one seems to require filling some form and ask them for contacting me :) – user399436 Aug 12 '18 at 21:57

    @Sil Scroll down the page, there's no need to use the form – grg Aug 12 '18 at 21:58
  • Without login? I don't see any map without that, just several ads (Hiring Developers is Hard, We Make it Easier, etc.. stuff). And login requires sign up (which asks me to click Contact Me button) – user399436 Aug 12 '18 at 22:03

    @Sil Yes, keep scrolling down further (I've added a screenshot) – grg Aug 12 '18 at 22:06
  • Oh wow, I thought that is just some kind of static image, didn't notice any change (kind of looks like image without any hud around). Anyway thanks – user399436 Aug 12 '18 at 22:07
