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.

Alabama Animal Control Association – Bad Web Design Example for September 16, 2011

September 15th, 2011 10:10 pm by Vincent Flanders

Submitter’s comments: A link on their home page points to a parked domain, so I filled out a contact form to let them know. Their form is a nightmare, by the way–there’s no line wrapping or right margins. Then I click send…

The form becomes a photo of a deer in a gun’s crosshairs! This is next to a list of aaca’s animal cruelty officers!

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Actually, the form has problems that are much worse. I didn’t enter anything into the form. I just hit the SUBMIT button and it sent the form off. Whether they receive it or not is something I don’t know.

I can’t get to the Alabama Humane Federation. I get a message saying the referrer is blocked. Why this is happening I can’t say. At least one link is to an unmarked PDF and there are a couple of links marked with two most frightening words that I know—Click Here. It’s not enough to just say “Click here” (NSFW, perhaps)

I couldn’t find the link to the parked domain.
