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.

BJ The Clown – Example of Bad Web Design for February 3, 2011

February 3rd, 2011 1:01 am by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: I was actually looking for a friend of mine who operates under the same name. I was just about to drive round and smack him upside the head, but it turns out this isn’t his page.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I’m sure he can’t change the name “BJ The Clown,” but I think I would. As this screen shot demonstrates, the home page is amazing—especially when you have your monitor in portrait mode. I don’t think this tiling is acceptable. The use of frames has its drawbacks. On the home page, there’s a link to the home page. This is always a bad idea, but it’s especially bad when you use frames. As this screen shot illustrates, it loads the home page over itself.

BJ is from Portland, Oregon, a city much beloved by yours truly. One of the funniest new shows on cable is Portlandia, a “dreamy and absurd rendering of Portland, Oregon. ”
