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.

The Worst Websites of 2011: Third Quarter Contenders (First Run-Through) and How These Sites Relate to Your Website

October 12th, 2011 12:12 am by Vincent Flanders

I'm planning this article

I spent a lot of time working on the Second Quarter Contenders so it would be in its final format. I’m three months behind on the Third Quarter and I have 33 contenders for worst site instead of “only” 20 in Q2. So instead of waiting to produce perfection, I’m breaking the process down into five steps—I call them “Run-Throughs”—and giving material to you as I create it.

What I’m releasing today is Run-Through #1. When I complete a section, I’ll check it off and you’ll know there’s something new to read. Here are the five:

  1. Examine Daily Suckers and pick out the worst of the worst.
  2. Edit and simplify the text, add screenshots and add commentary from my brilliant readers.
  3. Put sites in order of suckiness. Eliminate the “not-so-sucky.”
  4. Add “How These Sites Relate to Your Website” commentary, if necessary.
  5. Final format.

It’s ugly, but there’s still value in the material.
