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.

FAP Machine – Example #2 of Bad Web Design for May 23, 2011

May 23rd, 2011 1:01 am by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: Yes, that’s right. Rules this site breaks from the get-go: Not realizing the apparently random acronym they chose to name their business is a slang term for masturbation. But the site itself is an eyesore of mid-90s proportions. Even worse than that, really. There’s no discernible design scheme or even organizational structure whatsoever – just graphics thrown on a page over a graphic background with a graphic navigation that lands below the page break. Awful.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I agree, but its awfulness is awesome. What wonderful examples of bad web design techniques like:

As far as I can tell, there is not one single word of legitimate text on the page. We have repeating images, beveled graphics—heck, the home page is nothing but a bunch of images strung together.

I thought s/he was kidding about the meaning of “fap,” but it turns out to be true.
