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.

Trident Case – An Example of Bad Web Design for February 10, 2016

The Daily Sucker - an example of bad web design

Submitters’ comments: I haven’t written to you in a long time, but today I found a site that’s right up your alley. The Trident Case company supposedly makes rugged cases for smartphones and tablets, but their site is a delightful mix of bad technical glitches, mystery meat navigation and disorganization. There’s even a special bonus! The fun begins at Trident Case.

Vincent Flanders’ comments: The submitter had a lot of bad things to say that I’m sure were accurate at the time s/he submitted this site. Unfortunately, it was stuck in the wrong folder. Still, the obvious problem is this site wants me to think. Nobody wants to think. It looks like the first thing that happens when I visit the site is I’m being forced to fill out a subscription form. I don’t see an “X” on my phone or a small window on my desktop. Like many internet users, if there’s no promise of naked and/or dead bodies, I’m not staying around to figure out your navigation scheme.
