what NOT to do when making a website

Posted 12 January 2002 - 09:31 PM

http://www.angelciti...embers/enricko/

you know, i'm not into bashing people's sites, but this webpage reminded me of that Simpson's episode where Homer made a website that was just crammed full of music, animated gifs and the infamous Dancing Jesus. good grief, could that music be any more annoying? this page has it all: spinning stars, a magical fairly flying about, a spazzoid music track, 4 screens showing the same Flash movie, ads on the top and bottom (yeah, really professional touch), and overly confident claims to be an excellent web site.

for the love of God, i am begging all of you to NEVER make a site like this. it would break my heart.

Why spend thousands of dollars for a site that looks terrible, isn't functional or worse still confuses customers and drives them away forever. Take our web site for a test drive and see the difference.

hard to tell what is worse... http://www.drpcnm.com or this one jared... dizzam!  
any think drpcnm.com is more credible since it has it's very own domain?  

no?  didn't think so.

/*Begin Hypothetical Question*/
If you had to waste 10 bucks on a website and you had the choice between this site and DRPC which would you choose? I don't know about you but I'd choose DRPC for 2 reasons: 1. no bad music 2. member of dreamincode (least they did something right) :)
/*End Hypothetical Question*/

but 10 bucks wouldn't buy anything from either site...
DrPC charges ์ for a custom color!  and 贬 for a petty e-mail link.  
and with "Incredible Web Designs" i had to start my Java Plug-in just to view the page... for what?  for the cascading wave accross the background!  AAAAHHHH!

Oh good god, I thought this crap would have phased out by now. This is just crap. I mean, spend a little more time on what you do for gods sake!!!! Have some pride in your work, these people have NONE!

It's kinda funny, I'm 1 of like 3 designers in my town that does sites that don't look like the 2 that have been posted.  And there's probably 10 "design" companies.

That reminds me, I need to get so advertising out.

This is good... with things like this out there, the rest of us look that much better to those poor customers...
