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.

Bear Ridge Speedway – Bad Web Design Example #1 for August 25, 2011

August 25th, 2011 1:01 am by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: It’s a web page for a local race track and their web page design is among the
worst I’ve ever seen.

First, you have to scroll left / right to see all the text on the screen. Secondly, the ridiculous use of colored text throughout the website makes it nearly impossible to figure out what’s a link and what isn’t. Third, the images used are ridiculously low resolution and include a ZOOM feature! Fourth, the ‘gallery’ is impossible to navigate. The list goes on. This truly is terrible web design and a page that deserves a spot on Web Pages That Suck. Really bad.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: You do have to scroll if your screen’s resolution is 1024 x 768 pixels. My window is 1216 x 1896 pixels and I don’t have to scroll. On the other hand, the way text is used is frustrating. Click on “News.” I’d give you the URL, but I can’t because the site was created in Flash. Like Freddie, Flash is dead on non-game-based websites.

It’s extremely frustrating to view the Rules page. I can give you a link because it’s an unmarked PDF. When you look at it, you’ll be stunned. Instead of using a PDF, the document should have been an HTML document.
