Submitter’s comments: Here’s a BAD website for ya!
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Actually, I don’t have a clue how s/he got to this page from the home page (it might be a landing page for an email). The worst problem—and there were many to choose from—is that when you mouse over to the Products menu, most of the items on the menu were hidden by the January Special Flash animation.
The home page is deliriously silly. Flash animations galore inside table cells that are outlines. I was so distracted by the animations, I forgot to try to figure out what the site was about.
It’s a classic example of Mistake #6 from Biggest Mistakes in Web Design 1995-2015 — “Have you ever seen another website? Really? Doesn’t look like it.“
Worse, “Have you ever seen a website from a competitor?” On a whim, I typed in rugdoctor.com and was taken to a website that’s infinitely better although it sucks a lot because of a lack of contrast. You look at the page and you know exactly what they’re selling.
