Can we get an Amber Alert ticker put up on the site?

Im just sitting here thinking about it. Im watching the news thinking that if more people knew about when a child went missing, it can give a positive outcome to the missing kid stories we keep reading about. I've tried to put a ticker in my sig but its _javascript.

Think about it.

That would not be a good idea, considering that it would have to be for
the whole country, and there can be more than one at a time.

Add to that that it does seem like a waste of bandwidth, it is a noble
thing to wna t to do, but in the end you have to deal with what's possible.



Also, personally, I hate the damned Amber Alerts, I mean yes, it's good
that we are informed and all, but really, sometimes they take it to far.

But do they do it for a single state, or the whole country?

There are some that display for both, and I think they may show mulitple alerts.

I just looked up 'Amber Alert' on wikipedia, and I now understand that it is an emergency warning that is sent out nationally to inform people of a child abduction, right?

What percentage of traffic on ATS is not from the US?

That is a good point. I forgot that most people on this site are not from the US. Sorry for assuming that.

Thanks for the suggestion. It is admirable to be concerned for missing children.

Such a decision would fall on the owners of this website so I will let them know about this thread.

Feel free to use this feature in the future to contact the administration of this website.
