Submitter’s comments: Is this a bad website?
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Yes.
I’ve loved magic since I was a little boy. In fact, I love it so much I refused to watch the TV show "Secrets of Magic Revealed" (or whatever it was called) so it’s disappointing to see this website suck.
The 15Mb home page takes 26 seconds to load (per WebPageTest). The pictures at the top—where the navigation should be located—are not links, which you would expect them to be. The navigation starts at around 640px from the top of the page. Yeah, that’s where all the web design books tell you to place the navigation. Oh, and the page is ~31,674 pixels long (on a 1200px wide monitor) and even with the monitor being 1200px wide, I still have to scroll horizontally. Not good.
The rest of the page contains the usual suspects of bad web design.
