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.

Best Electronics – An Example of Bad Web Design for January 25, 2016

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitters’ comments: This is an actual company. I couldn’t believe it either. They actually have great service though the Atari 2600 Purists website.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Well, the good news is you can easily read both sites—lack of contrast and small text are pet peeves of all talented web designers and myself—but you won’t find those problems here. What you find is centered text, which is harder to read than flush-left text (search Google for [is centered text bad] or something similar). There are different colors used for links, underlined text is used on regular text instead of solely for links, text is different size, etc. The home page for Best Electronics is also too long.

The Atari 2600 Purists website has a few problems of its own. It requires Java, which any sane person has removed from their system. When you click “Forums” you’ll discover there’s no normal way to close the window except by clicking another link.
