Submitter’s comments: Go back to the mid-1990s! My eyes kept focusing on the click here, but I really couldn’t tell why I should click there. Lots of color to distract you. Would I even consider buying their software? No way!
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Some visitors don’t believe that this type of website still exists—I’m afraid they do. Others believe that the owners know their sites are bad—No they don’t. I featured one website for “obvious reasons.” A while later, the owner wrote back and said he had revised the site and asked if it still sucked. I went to the site expecting something new and wonderful and I couldn’t see anything different except he removed a sound file that automatically played when the page loaded.
I suspect the owner of this site doesn’t know it sucks. It does. Go through Web Design Checklist 1—156 Mortal Sins That Will Send Your Site to Web Design Hell and Web Design Checklist 2 – 83 Potential Mortal Sins and see how many mistakes are made.
As an addendum. This (WPTS) site sucks. I’ve never been pleased with it, but that’s OK because this is WebPagesThatSUCK. Even though it sucks, it’s infinitely better than today’s sucker—or almost any sucker on here (except for some sites with just contrast issues). If his site sucked as much as mine, this would be a much, much nicer looking web.
