    I like the look of MacRumors - easy to read and uncluttered. I especially appreciate it when I see how awful some other forums look - huge animated avatars and signatures, bad color combos that burn your eyes...

    Post a link to the most poorly designed forum you've seen!

    That's very similar to Homer Simpson's website. The only thing missing is the dancing Jesus. :p

    This one's nowhere near as bad as the last two, but it is what I think of when people here complain when their sig gets shortened by the mods.

    If they didn't shorten it we'd end up with a forum that looked like this. :rolleyes:

    Heh, yeah. In the distant past, I did like the idea of a small, slim picture bar for a signature, but whenver I go to a forum with them I realise the error of my ways. :eek: Fortunately I never vocalised this desire, as I would have, quite rightfully, been shot down. :D

    Worst I have seen?

    ..and yes I am the admin there.. because I suck at webdesign, and I hate spending my time to make things, and the forum is dead anyhow.

    :eek: :eek:

    And there's people on MR who complain about post:sig size ratios. Imagine what they'd be like if they ventured over to that site. It took me a few minutes to realise there was actually stuff other that massive sigs!!

    Here is an "ugly joke" in an old forum archive. The format itself is plain but fine. This version is a bit more colorful but still OK.

    I find IMDb's forum really ugly, and its a pain to use. I also find SuperiorPics forum really unpleasant to look at.

    Edit:: Great link Doctor Q. It got me to laugh.
