    THE WORST WEB SITES IN DESIGN OR FUNCTIONALITY

    As a regular contributor on here (and the dude who maintains the "Helpful links..." sticky topic) I thought it would be fun to try something, well, different.

    Please post links to the worst sites in design or functionality here based on the following criteria:

    • Dynamic - i.e. database or CMS or basic complexity and use of modern technology layer of some sort (avoid simple HTML, static or old web pages)
    • Nobody you know - no friends, family or co-workers
    • Ugly - in terms of layout, design and theming (not graphics alone or ugly pics)
    • Functionality - more than just one thing broken, must have poor overall technical design or implementation, horrible usability, overblown interface, etc.

    PLEASE ALSO DESCRIBE *WHY* THE SITE YOU POSTED IS WORTHY OF BEING CALLED THE WORST YOU'VE EVER SEEN - FROM A TECHNICAL PERSPECTIVE, OF COURSE!

    *JUSTIFY YOUR PAIN!
    :eek:

    What I'm really hoping for is that people comment on the sites and maybe, just maybe, we can all learn what to do by seeing what not to do. Turn a negative into a positive by discussing failures in best practices, etc. And, of course, to laugh a bit in the process and have some fun!

    *I reserve the right to comment on your post and try steer the forum back in the right direction if it goes astray or any rules broken.

    How about if I take a shortcut and relay the work that's already been done?

    No fun if we just link "worst sites" listed on other sites.

    Come on, folks, this is a teaching forum, so find something out there that sucks and makes you want to show to others as a lesson on what NOT to do! That's the spirit I'm looking for!

    (but thanks for the reply, your effort is appreciated)
