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.

TW Steel – An Example of Bad Web Design for August 11, 2014

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitter’s comments: TW Steel make fancy watches We have pointless Flash intros, a strange “See the world of Watches/See the world of TW steel” round link thing that follows the cursor around, and in the see the world of TW steel bit -some showy hidey Mystery Meat Navigation madness.

I didn’t like it. Maybe you won’t either.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I don’t like it either, which is sad because I really like watches. KidsToday (and many AdultsToday) don’t realize many watches were extremely expensive (except watches like Timex). When I graduated from high school last century my parents bought me “a decent watch” for $150. There were no digital watches. You had to wind them to keep them going. In today’s dollars, the watch would cost $1,100. No wonder my old many lectured me about not losing the watch.

Ironically, the mobile version of TW Steel’s website looks and works a lot better than the Flash-based desktop version.

The Store Locater is a total joke. For “Country” I put USA and for “City” I put Vancouver. I was given a big map and after looking at it I couldn’t tell if there was a store in the area. I don’t think there is one, but why doesn’t it tell me that instead of giving me a map and having me try to see if there’s a store in the area. This massively, massively sucks.
