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.

Xerox Real Business – Worst Website in the World for 2011 – June 8, 2011

June 7th, 2011 8:08 pm by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: Probably going to win all sorts of awards for innovative, clever, and other pointless words, but as a useful helpful and informative site it is a bit of a disaster. I have no idea what all those people are doing and what I’m supposed to do except listen to all those annoying sounds. And I bet they spent millions on the site as well.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I think it’s going to win at least one award—WebPagesThatSuck’s Worst Website of 2011. On the other hand, it’s mathematically possible for some other site to be worse. Nah. Vegas is putting it as a 2-100 favorite. The site is not a “bit of disaster”, as the submitter suggests. It’s the black hole of f**king death of disasters.

The good news is that you can use Xerox’s site as an acid test. Ask your favorite designer what he thinks of the site. If he likes it, you know he has his head so far up his ass he can kiss his tonsils. If he hates it, the odds are good that s/he’s a designer who understands that websites are about providing information and solving needs.

I swear the bald guy on the Finance and Accounting Floor is the brother of the talking bald guy at Mr. Bottles. I like Mr. Bottles’ talking guy better. The Xerox tool sounds like just another pompous assh*le.

Just as a piece of trivia, the Xerox site looks even worse on a portrait monitor.

If you’re “lucky,” you’ll get a chance to fill out a survey about the website. Please do. My readers are smart and hate stupid websites.
