The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

Show of hands - who else is sick to DEATH of the omnipresent 'cookie permissions' statement that seems to be on every website these days?  All of you??  Same here.  

On today's bad website, it's the only 'content' you're able or allowed to see until you acknowlege the message.  Someone should just add an "IDGAF" option, and that's what we'd click every time.

Therefore - whatever is happening at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas will remain unseen.  Unless it's a black screen.  THAT'S what's happening.

Occasionally, someone will submit a website that is 'bad' because it's under construction.  That alone isn't a reason to label it a bad website. After a reasonable period of time has passed, we check back.  In this case, it's been 5 months.  Wouldn't you agree that's enough time to deploy a new website?  It certainly is if you've hired professionals.

The problem is telling people the website is 'temporarily down for updating'.  You  don't need to do that.  You leave the website alone until the new one is ready to launch, then simply replace the content.

Look Young Be Fit

Don't be scared.  Well, not yet.  Let's see if this bad website is not really irradiating this person's face in the name of beauty.

All menu options lead right back here.  Actually, that could be a lie, but at least the 6 or 7  we chose at random do.  So what is the plan here?  The url says lookyoungbefitiowa, so maybe that's how they do it there.  Iowans?  What do you say...is this true?

We hope that the person on this landing page isn't really going to have their face clamped by the giant robot arm...

Tibbee Creek

Go ahead and rub your eyes, then look again.  Nothing will have changed.  This is the landing page for a web design company.  

Today's bad website came about in a way we often find the unfortunate websites featured here on boogersite.com   Someone submits a bad website, and when it's being evaluated, we often click on the company taking 'credit' for developing it.  That's what happened here.  The website that was submitted is bad, but the company who created it has a site made up entirely of a catfish, which did not do anything but make faces at us the whole time we watched it.

There's not a lot going on here, but today's bad website seems to offer a very necessary technology for flying aircraft in mountainous regions.  That's a narrow audience, isn't it?  Still, those particular pilots deserve some design, don't they?

We can't really tell, but the technology seems dated.  The Dealer and Customer Service area is "best used with Microsoft Internet Explorer", so that may be a clue that it's time to update.  

There's also an invitation to 'check out the G-Meter Android app', but the link is broken.  Shrug.  We're done here.
