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: Iā€™m hoping that seeing their website on the list will prompt them to redesign. They represent a formal scientific body in South Africa, have thousands of hits a month from geological tourists throughout the world and really do need to do a better job!

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I realize rocks are old, but this website comes from the Chattian Age and it’s time to get a new look. Yes, you can read the text (one of my pet peeves), but the contrast strains the eyes. It appears they’re using a large background image instead of using the CSS hex code #000050. The background image wastes precious time and bandwidth.
