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.

Oshkosh Gymnastics Center – An Example of Bad Web Design for June 22, 2011

Submitter’s comments: No words needed to describe this one.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I can think of a couple of words: big, Microsoft Office, white space, and eight TABLES. According to the Charles Proxy, the home page eats up 3.25Mb of bandwidth and WebPageTest says it takes over 20 seconds to load. It’s ugly in a harmless way. On the plus side, the facilities look very, very professional. It’s a shame the site doesn’t.

If your company is totally PC, then this site might be sorta-kinda not suitable for work because of photos of female gymnasts. Hell, how would I know what’s politically correct? I’ve spent my whole life embracing the incorrect <grin>.
