Do You Find Snowflakes That Are Falling On a Webpage Distracting Or Pretty? By jeffcDecember 12, 2008July 7, 2009Web Development Author: jeffc
Snowflakes Falling,that is really a nice idea.flash needed.
I’ve had enough of the stuff already….. don’t make me watch it snow when I’m trying to read a blog page. Very distracting, and a constant reminder of why I hate winter!
It depends. Are these snowflakes coming from a hole in my roof? Because that would be highly distracting.
I am not surprised with the poll results.

global warming just to melt off these snowflakes… lol

Totally annoying and definitely NOT for a professional site.
I agree 100%. I hate seeing falling snow on WordPress!
At first, I thought the idea was creative, and I loved them
But then it became too much, on too many websites, and I don’t like them anymore 🙁
They are annoying!
They are so distracting and make me actually leave the web page. Internet users do come to web pages don’t tend to want anything distracting going on. We are supposed to be reading content so taking any chance of distracting people is obviously a no-no.
I wouldn’t mine snow for one day but probably not for the whole Christmas period especially if it slows the sites load time down.
I dont like it and i dont use it.
It ads more JS so more variables to possible conflicts and its distracting.
I think a background or logo change its whay batter and give a more “pro” look to things. For people who has time and/or resources a template change or costumisation its fine also.
I add a simple “christmas hat” in one of my sites, im aware its not very good but i took-me 2 or 3 min.. Can check in http://www.arouca.biz
Keep up the good work Jeff and sorry the bad English
In general, it is not so good and professional. But if it is a special day – like some festival, or blog’s birthday or anything special occasion, its ok. On a regular manner, one should not practice that…
If it is for a Christmas website. it is cool, for the rest I can do with out it!
