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: Today in Federal Indian Law, we were having a short discussion on Indian Boarding schools and it turns out they still exist. The professor then brought this gem to the projector and we all shuddered in horror at this atrocious attempt at web design—pictures protruding into other segments, over-use of gradients, a random white bar, etc.. I can’t even describe how horrid this site is.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: I don’t know, I think you’ve done a nice job of describing the horrors.

On the Programs page, among other pages, you can see how difficult it is to read the black text on the purple background. Speaking of pages why, in the name of all that’s holy, is the Programs page called “Page758.htm”? That’s not going to help the search engines determine how to handle the page. Speaking of handling the page, the page doesn’t handle mobile at all. At least according to Google’s Mobile Friendly Test. Oh, it’s not just the pages that are named incorrectly, the graphics are too. I’m sure we can all figure out what “image621.jpg” looks like.
