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.

Hugh Jass Burgers – The PERFECT example of how NOT to build a website – The Daily Sucker for September 17, 2013

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: While on vacation two weeks ago headed down to Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg, TN, we spent the night in Lexington, KY.  We were driving around near the UK campus and saw a place called Hugh Jass Burgers and, I have to confess, I couldn’t help but bust out laughing at the name.

During an idle moment at work, and just out of curiosity, I looked ’em up online…and saw that their website sucks in more ways than one.  For starters, why open the rest of the site in a new window?  Makes no sense to me…

Vincent Flanders’ comments: What makes even less sense is the site is Flash-based and there’s no mobile version. A restaurant without a mobile website? What the heck? Here’s what you see on an iPhone when you go to their site:

The mobile version of Hugh Jass Burgers really sucks

Another design mistake is how tacky the site looks on a large, portrait monitor. I almost forgot to mention the website has a splash page and there is music that automatically plays when you enter the real site. (Actually, I kind of like the music, but “kind of” isn’t good enough. As someone who is well-known in the heterosexual community, I wouldn’t want to go out with someone who was kind of like a woman <grin>.)
