Was searching for some local info about Sussex and came across this:

http://www.wessex.me.uk/sussex.html

Holy heck that's bad. An almost perfect example of how to do just about everything wrong on a web site.

Anyone got anything worse?

Those syndication banners certainly bring back memories. Only things it seems to be missing:[LIST][*] "Under construction" animated gif with the builder[*] Hit-counter[*] Some javascript that shows a message in the browser status bar[/LIST]

Although, the OPs site looks close to someone who links to their personal site from here.

Good God, it's like the 90s have come back to haunt us!! All those clashing colours, animated gifs, flashing text and cramming everything onto one page!!

This one just seems to go on and on and on and... http://www.merciatouristboard.org.uk/

What about Ryanair's website? That's pretty hideous. Makes my eyes bleed.

Ow my eyes I see it works best in Internet Explorer as well. I'm a Mac user! The 90s called, they want their bad web design back.

That actually looks quite good that , sort of deliberately designed a bit retro but made by someone who knows a bit about what they're doing.

I came across Marlow Casino Chips when doing a search for Marlow on t'Internet.

Didn't realise that people actually collected those things - I thought they were meant to be lost

Considering this is supposed to advertise a nights entertainment it is pretty hideous in colour and graphics.

This is the official site of our main Cinema. I couldn't work out where the cinema listings were - turns out you have to scroll down the page and then there is a huge long list of movies and showtimes.

The rest of the site is equally as bad. On the bright-side, it appears to be keeping costs down. A ticket is only 5.20.
