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

Submitters’ comments: Checking out some places in Hawaii to stay and found this site worthy of submission for a 2016 start. The varied sized photos, the progressively smaller font changes as you scroll down some pages. I love it.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: The multi-colored text is pretty annoying as it’s different sizes. It took a while to figure out the navigation scheme—and “scheme” is a good word for it. You’re making me think about navigation and website visitors don’t want to think and nobody puts their navigation in the middle of the page. I suspect it’s a great spot to vacation, but why would anyone who’s been to their website want to book a stay? Of course, it’s January here in the US and everyone is in or wishes they were in Hawaii so this place is booked solid in January. Maybe if you’re selling the crack cocaine version of a vacation spot like they are, your website can suck.

Let us not forget the trailing cursor with its blatant advertising. I love advertising, but it should be tasteful.
