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.

Mojo Yogurt – An Example of Bad Web Design for January 27, 2016

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitters’ comments: I was trying to look at the menu for a frozen yogurt shop on my phone and was disappointed to find this.

this is what you see

Vincent Flanders’ comments: Flash has sucked forever. Now, even Adobe wants nothing to do with Flash—at least its name. The article shows that Adobe is even confused about what’s happening. They change the name to Adobe Animate like that’s going to make everything better. Well, maybe it will work. They’re still keeping Flash for the desktop, but everyone knows the desktop is not where it’s at in 2016 (and earlier). I thought everybody knew the web is all about mobile and as you see above, Flash doesn’t run on a mobile device. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t boot up my desktop and wait until everything loaded to try to find a yogurt shop. I’d use my phone. I suspect most people look for a yogurt shop when they’re out and about, so the phone is the tool to use.

The Flash-based home page has some issues. The two menu tabs (“Newsfeed” and “Latest Blogs”) are basically unreadable because of the lack of contrast. The “Latest Blogs” page is not Flash-based, but it uses centered text erratically, text comes in various sizes and colors and the page is too long. The worst part is that when you leave the “Latest Blogs page and go back to the home page, the music and sound start up again—even when you’ve turned them off on the home page. Tacky.
