    Post Creative use of popus

    Hi, all:

    I'm building a page as part of a guerrilla marketing campaign, and I want to use javascript popups in a creative way.

    Here's what I want to do:

    :: have a popup load five seconds after the page loads
    :: have the user close that pop up
    :: have the same popup open again
    :: repeat this pattern five times

    On the sixth time, a final, different popup loads. And after the user closes this one, no others appear.

    Can anyone help me code this out? Thanks in advance.

    Well popups are annoying. I think you've probably gotten as creative as you can, but if I knew that you were going to poke a popup in my face five seconds after the page loads, then I wouldn't go there. And if I had to go there, then I would disable my JavaScript on that page. What you're trying to do seems like a misuse of popups to me.

    i can see this being a popup of burma-shave proportions... set a counter for each time it generates a popup...

    otherwise i agree with nathan it sounds angering

    Yes, it's totally annoying, but this isn't for a straight business project. This is for a guerrilla marketing sort of thing.

    Any tips on coding this out?

    I'll be frank, if I were visiting a site like that I would be thoroughly pissed and more focused on how pissed off your site made me as opposed to the content of the popup. While I have never refrained from providing assistance and direction, I will be this time around. I will not be apart of propagating something that I detest.
