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 Daily Sucker

Submitter’s comments: Just how many featured articles can a home page have before none are featured? This one “features” a length of over 100 (!) pages/screens of articles going back to at least 2005. As with many really Over-the-top Websites (OTT), they love to pile it on.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: If a picture is worth a thousand words, we could use about 47 pictures. Somebody has taken the phrase “web page” way too seriously. On the other hand, it doesn’t take the word “synopsis” seriously enough or it doesn’t understand the definition. Let me help them out.

You know you’re in for a fun time when you see a link entitled, “How to USE this Website.” Jokes and navigation share one thing in common: if you have to explain either one, it isn’t working.

On the other hand, for an OTT website, it looks better than most. Probably because the site eliminated the usual strobe color effects and animated GIFs.
