When you access a website that has a pointer trail, do you find yourself playing with the trail more than actually looking at the site?

Yes. Definitely! Most of the sites that employ this technique are rubbish anyway.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/25/05 - 5:52:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
I find myself leaving. Quickly.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 7/2/05 - 10:21:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes... I love pointer trails that spell something out! And yeah, the actual stuff on those types of sites tend to suck!

I just sit there swirling the pointer and watching the trail catch up until I come to my senses and leave.
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 7/15/05 - 3:26:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
unfortunate, yes
15 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 7/17/05 - 9:18:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I do that all the time, then feel like such an idiot after.

Always do that! Habit!
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/3/05 - 11:41:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
NO i just get out of the site! they might load a virus or something onto the trail...............
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 8/3/05 - 11:44:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't visit bad websites.

i must agree with everyone that says that sites that have a pointer trail are usually not very good sites.

my friend made this site that had ghosts and butterflies and balloons moving around in the background of every page, and a clock with the date as a mouse trail. aradjgioasgjoigopgiud computer frozen.

Yes, those things are so cool looking.

15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 9/21/05 - 6:32:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
Heh heh heh. Of course.
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/23/05 - 5:49:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not more than actually viewing the site, but I do play with the cursor a litte:P
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/29/05 - 4:51:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, aha. I love those trails.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 11/2/05 - 3:11:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
So there IS a better way to waste time on the internet!
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 11/17/05 - 8:35:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sites with pointer trails are generaly made by 8 year olds on geocites. The pointer trail is usually better than the site.
15 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 1/4/06 - 1:01:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only for a few minutes. I tend to agree though...sites with pointer trails generally suck.

Any site that has a mouse trailer probably doesn't have any good material to look at anyway... but the trailer makes up for it

I hate websites with pointer trails. I hate websites that play music.

In general, I hate websites designed by 14-year-old girls.
