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 - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: The homepage is probably the worst, but there’s much more sucky stuff inside.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Normally, I don’t look at source code because it’s often a very scary place to visit. However, the source code for this home page looks fine and the CSS file has lots of comments and there doesn’t seem to be anything unusual.

What we have here is mixed text colors and sizes and an image that goes over the borders of the page (DARE—Dictionary of Regional English). You can see what I’m talking about by viewing a screen capture (1Mb).

One outstanding feature on the home page is they let you know you’re going to download a Word Document or a PDF. That’s rare.

Consistency is key here. The key is broken.
