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.

Put the Damn Day of the Week On Your Events – Bad Web Design Example #1 for June 30, 2011

June 30th, 2011 12:12 am by Vincent Flanders

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I click a link that goes to SeoMoz’s MozCon SEO seminar. Here’s what I see along with some notes about how I felt. Granted, I could have scrolled down and found the information. As Steve Krug brilliantly pointed out, “Don’t Make Me Think.” Or as I like to say, “Don’t Make Me Freaking Think.” James Robert Johnson has better examples—not to mention a better explanation of the problem—in his article “Please print the day of the week along with the date.”

BTW, don’t put any kind of dates on your articles. Jakob Nielsen’s brilliant article F-Shaped Pattern For Reading Web Content loses a lot of its luster—incorrectly—when you see it was written on April 17, 2006 (it was a Monday but it serves no purpose putting that in the article). Still, you automatically think, “This is old research and I’ll discount it.”
