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: This is so full of fail – animated GIFs combined with a partisan . . . oh, never mind. I am sure it will vanish down the memory hole. Who ever thought this would come across as a mature, responsible, adult expression rather than a failed “We’re cool, too, and know how to use the web, just like you, including copyright violations”? My guess, some staff member will get blamed or the members will double down.

If it qualifies for suckiness (at least this page, not really the site), better move quickly or copy it.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: “If it qualifies for suckiness”? This is the essence of fail. This 6Mb page is a waste of bandwidth. As far as copyright violations go, Congress is immune.

I hate politics the way Hitler hated Jews. Republicans run this committee, but I’m sure Democrats would be just as stupid and put something similar up. What this page says to me is, “We’re fat, ugly, boring (mostly) white males who are desperately trying to appear hip. I should know. I’m also a fat, ugly, (rarely) boring white male who doesn’t care about whether I’m hip or not.

Web design is not the place to try to appear hip or cool or anything but helpful to your visitors.
