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.

1927 Events – An Example of Bad Web Design for December 16, 2013

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: Flash may be dead, but its legacy of suck lives on in HTML 5.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Interestingly, it doesn’t look as bad on mobile devices (iPhone 4 and iPad Air); however, the problems show up on the web version. The site is into that HTML scrolling technique which is so annoying. Scrolling is really for dating sites because you’re excited about what you might find. On 1927, the excitement gives way to annoyance. There’s a down arrow which means you’re supposed to use this as a guide for scrolling. Mac users don’t open up full screens and in the above example it’s difficult to find the down arrow that tells you should scroll down.

There’s also some Mystery Meat Navigation (MMN)—see the image below—and we all know how much MMN sucks.

The HTML5 trickery shown on this site is becoming more and more common. Stop it.
