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.

Raising Overcomers – An Example of Bad Web Design for March 16, 2012

A bad website

This is the Daily SuckerSubmitter’s comments: The ultimate in Mystery Meat Navigation.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Initially, I thought this was what happens when Pinterest meets Mystery Meat Navigation, but I was wrong. Turns out these are Blogger Dynamic View Gadgets. One of the problems I have with templates and widgets and gadgets is the creators give people options that are stupid. It’s like giving a machine gun with the safety off to your average 3-year old. They’re going to make the wrong choice. Templates and gadgets and widgets are the same way. The creators should offer choices, but they should be rational choices.

I don’t have any idea what the site is about other than someone’s ruminations on life. Even if it’s a personal site, the issue is don’t use stupid widgets—especially if you’re a business. To be fair to Blogger, their video shows how these gadgets should be used, but it assumes talent that even I don’t have. I’ve been trying to make a stupid Pinterest version of my home page, but I’m Masonry and Javascript impaired. Any help would be appreciated.
