    Not to my knowledge, but it isn't too difficult to make one. Or, if you find an image you want to use, find it, save it as name.ani and browse + upload it under Control Panel > Mouse > Pointers?

    So that's how I do it.

    What about animated ones?

    I don't know of any websites where it can be done. Is there some reason you don't want to install a program for this, 'cuz there are a few decent freeware cursor & icon editors out there.

    Well, I wish I could help but as I said I've never heard of any online sites where cursors like that can be designed.

    If you do get permission to download a program (might be worth asking), I'd recommend this one:

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Graphic/Graphic-Editors/Greenfish-Icon-Editor-Pro.shtml

    It's well-reviewed, downright tiny and low-profile, and can edit/create both cursors (including animated ones) and icons.

    I can't seem to get what I made to show up on the list. Lemme try to figure out how to do what Yoshi said.

    Alright, RainbowMoondust, let's walk you through this step-by-step, as you may have a few complications. Bear in mind that these steps are the absolute minimum, making a custom cursor can be a little freestyling for a while (such as the image size and shit).

    1. Find an image you like and save it to your computer.

    2. Open up any editing software you have such as Paint or PhotoShop or something like that.

    3. Import the image to that software (or Open if you will) and resize the image to... 15 x 15 pixels.

    4. Save the image as whatevername.ani and find it through the Control Panel > Mouse > Pointers. Ta-da.

    However, if you have Linux or something other than Windows, disregard all of that, but you didn't specify. :p Seemed to work for Raikou, though.

    Although really, you're downloading stuff just by browsing the web. What kind of restrictions are they?
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.
