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.

MSY – An Example of Bad Web Design for April 10, 2014

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: I see MSY has been previously nominated for the Daily Sucker and even received an honorary award in 2009. MSY have updated their site from early-90s out-of-date in 2009 to late-90s out-of-date now in 2014. They’re catching up! At this rate they may hit contemporary within 15-20 years.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Nicely phrased. MSY would have made the regular Worst of 2009 list except they changed it enough by the end of the year so I thought the new version didn’t qualify so I put it on the Honorary list.

This screenshot of the 2009 MSY website shows why it sucked back in the day. The “worst” design element is that the page won’t fit on a 1200px monitor so you have to horizontally scroll. The home page doesn’t do very well on Google’s PageSpeed Insights (you also get to see a screenshot of what the page looks like on an Android device).
