    What's the worst (most poorly done) web site you have ever seen?

    Here's my nomination:

    Red Cross

    Maybe we need a "Worst Web Site of the Year" award.

    Yeah, HRO (hamradio.com) has a fairly decent database system, but their site is atrocious. It's so unorganized, hard to navigate, and very non-descript. I need to e-mail them and see if they'll let me fix it for them.

    it's in the "archives" section. someone tried to apply a template to it so that it would look like the new articles on the site, but the developer left out the table with the white background (and never checked to see what it looked like).

    My nomination for "Worst Web Site of the Year" in the "Federal Agency" category:

    LINK

    This is an OSHA web site that supposedly lists Federal agencies that are exempt from OSHA 29 CFR 1960 standards.

    Is it possible that (choose the best answer):

    a. They don't want anyone to read it.

    b. They didn't care whether or not anyone could read it.

    c. They never looked at the web site to see whether or not anyone could read it.

    d. They had never seen a web site before.

    e. They didn't have a clue what they were doing.

    f. All of the above.

    Hmmm. I started this thread about a year and a half ago, but the Red Cross web site still looks the same.

    But somebody has edited the web site since then because it shows "Last modified: 12/01/2006 05:22:28 ET". (Strangely, that's today; so it's likely an automatic change of some kind.)

    Predictably, their "contact us" link gives the famous "404 Object Not Found".

    Gaston must've been reading this thread. Have you seen the new glock.com? I don't know when the new site went up, but it must be pretty recent. (There's probably a post about it somewhere here on Glocktalk).

    I'll chose F, but it looks like that someone just scanned the info out of a worn out book to put on their site. I'll agree I think that will take the cake on the WORST site to view!!!!!
