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.

Corruption on the Border – An Example of Bad Web Design For August 24, 2012

A bad website

Submitter’s comments: Ever heard of site navigation?

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Another Over-the-top Website dedicated to whatever is running around someone’s head. Unfortunately, the stuff running around the site’s designer isn’t good web design. Keeping the site current isn’t running around someone’s head either. I used the wonderful tool redbot to discover that the last time the home page was modified was February 21, 2010.

The navigation is consistent with other sites of this ilk—it’s all over the place.

If you’re into over-the-top belief systems, at least make your website look good. I can’t imagine anyone looking at the Corruption on the Border website and saying, “Oh, I trust what this guy is saying.” On the other hand, an over-the-top site like BOND looks great—for someone outside the mainstream. You’re initial reaction is very positive. You initially feel like you can trust the content. That’s what it’s all about.
