Phoenix Feline Fanciers
Cats are awesome, right? At least to a majority of the population. Think about it - without cat videos, the internet might not exist! Then what would you do with your spare time? How about STUDYING WEB DESIGN! We wish the organization with the tongue-twister name featured here would have done so, or had the good sense to hire a professional web design company.
Although some of the content is up-to-date, the design is certainly not. Blurry graphics and an unorganized landing page deflate any excitement a website visitor may have had upon discovering this website.
We've even found a boogersite within a boogersite by clicking on the small round green cartoon(?) picture in the lower left corner. Yikes!
Keep Earth Beautiful
Today's ginormous bad website claims to have over 1000 pages. Good thing the internet doesn't charge by the page, or this exhausting website would need a lot of donations to stay alive.
There's a lot of doom and gloom here, interspersed with "facts" meant to get people panicked about the state of the environment and earth. Or at least that's what it seems like. When a website has an abundance of exclamation marks and question marks, it's a tiring see-saw of 'declare then question.'
You can make your own decision on how you feel about the content of this website, but the scattered text, links, blurry pictures and lack of a cohesive design gets a big thumbs down from us.
Often we get a bad website submitted to us that's old, ugly, non-functional or all three at once. Sometimes we end up not using those as boogersites because those websites belong to a small company that doesn't look like they're doing much business.
Today, however, we have a horrid website for a company that actually seems to do excellent work. The 'before' and 'after' pictures definitely demonstrate their abilities and quality of work - so why the crummy website?
We're not even sure how you'd find this company if you were a potential customer searching for 'floor restoration' for your brewery, lab, or other processing facility. Cascade Floors - if your website looked a fraction as good as your finished work, we believe you'd be very busy.
Did you know that seven years of Kansas history has its own website? Be honest, neither did we. Yessir, the period known as Territorial Kansas has a website, but no Twitter account that we can find.
So what's going on here? This blood-red website is a collection of great detail of what went on in Kansas from 1854-1861. We can't imagine this website gets a lot of traffic unless you are a teacher looking for a lesson plan on the topic - of which there are several. Some very focused diarist has also provided a day-by-day chronicle of significant events in Kansas during that period. Can you imagine? Is there anyone today taking notes on the daily happenings in that state or others?
This site is actually pretty interesting. It's indexed well, with links to such things as the correspondence of Charles Twiss, violent deaths and information on Exodusters.
About this site: It's always important to take care of your health and technology around you. If your health does not work, you do not have the use of the electronics and do not work electronics so you can not check this website.
WHAT? You want us to be healthy so we can visit this loser website? Nonsensical text between pictures of food and drink serves no purpose, and neither does this bad website.
