Submitters’ comments: At first glance, it seems okay, but there’s no way to tell that the pages have anything going on below the fold. The pictures cut people’s heads off, there are sometimes up to six barely web-safe font families on a page.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Once again, another big issue is contrast—or lack of it. If you scroll to the bottom where most of the links are located and you’ll see they’re hard to read. Your visitors have to be able to read the text.
Google’s PageSpeed Insights wasn’t impressed with the speed of the site, giving the mobile version a score of 39 and the desktop version a score of 58.

It’s terrible. It’s hard to read. The color scheme looks like and makes you want to vomit. I understand the outdoors is “green,” but for God’s sakes man.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: The contrast—or lack of—is just wrong, wrong, wrong I especially like the centered, left-centered, and right-centered text within only three paragraphs!
The site is a classic example of Mistake #6 from Biggest Mistakes in Web Design 1995-2015 — “Have you ever seen another web site? Really? Doesn’t look like it.“ I call this type of design the “I haven’t taken my anti-psychotics in a while school of web design.”
