The Daily Sucker - Current examples of bad web design

The Daily Sucker

Sites featured in articles like Worst Websites of 2010 often are redesigned, which explains why some sites mentioned in my articles don't match their current look. The Daily Sucker features current examples of bad web design which haven't been fixed (yet).

If you see a site that you think sucks, email the URL to me. No personal pages (personal pages are supposed to reflect the individual's personality and artistic freedom) or web site designers (it would look like a conflict of interest), or others of their ilk.

If I think there's some merit to your selection, I may post it along with some commentary. If you know of a site that qualifies, let me know.

The Daily Sucker – Examples of Bad Web Design for January 26, 2011

Carpal Tunnel Surgery Sucks. I’ve been laid up with CT surgery this last week and I was suffering a lot of pain and numbness before the surgery. My typing skills right now are horrendous, so I’m going to limit my commentary. Limit it to zero. Just the submitter’s comments.

Daily Sucker #1: Gordon Wayne Watts Official Research Page

It’s a toned-down version of your Over-The-Top Websites. It lacks the gaudy colors and the violently moving animated GIFs that OTTWs have. Then there’s the stupid music. If the stories lined up, I wouldn’t bother suggesting it the Daily Sucker.

Daily Sucker #2: Joxer Daly’s

I came across this website after reading the reviews on Yelp. The reviews are mostly positive but the web page really sucks! The menu is a slideshow that rotates every 5 seconds. Why it rotates, I do not know and I can not read that fast. So they give you a way to stop the rotation by moving your mouse over the thumbnail. The only problem is after you stop the rotation you can only read the top half of the menu. If you move your mouse to scroll down it starts to rotate again and there isn’t a way to stop it from rotating on the bottom half of the page. Horrible design.

Daily Sucker #3: Essex Primary

Here’s my suggestion for the Daily Sucker.

Essex Primary

Daily Sucker #4: J.C. Enterprises Quality Woodstoves

This company is been in business since the late 1970’s selling stoves and they do print advertising all the time with this website listed as the contact. You can’t read a lot of the links and that background graphic is from 1996.
