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: I think I’ve found a great candidate for your site with it’s Mystery Meat Navigation. It looks like it could be arty, but as it’s about the video game industry it probably should be better designed. See what you think.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: If I’ve used this before, I apologize. I’m running a bit of a fever.

Let’s make a website where the spot you think you should click on in the home page sends you to the site’s subpages (the big text), doesn’t send you anywhere. You have to click on the small text to go the the subpage(s). Once you get there you discover a bunch of unidentified boxes with unidentified people. Even when you mouse over a box you still can’t read the text. I’m not a gamer, so it’s difficult for me to comprehend if the gaming community thinks this is stupid (for the love of all that is sacred and holy, I hope so) or it’s something they’re bloviating about (please, God, no).
