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 Pickled Ploughman – An Example of Bad Web Design for September 14, 2012

A bad website

Submitter’s comments: This one is a total shocker. Mystery Meat Navigation (MMN) here is taken to a whole new level.  Once you delve into one level, you have to spot the little ‘trap door’ icon to get out again.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: An example that shows that using the latest and greatest (HTML5) doesn’t guarantee you a great looking website. The MMN is pretty bad, although they think that periodically showing the subpage names gets them off the hook. No. People have to wait and waiting is not what the Internet is about.

The worst part about the MMN is the text in the middle says “Hover over the images to navigate our site.” Only 5 of the 12 images are navigational links.
