To the president of the bud ugly web page design co.

No offense guys, but i don't think your company will ever get any where in the design business. First of all, the colours you people choose to put together clash, really badly. Like purple and green, or light blue and pink. Then, there are the terrible errors in the grammar you use, do you not realise how senseless the literature on your pages are? It doesn't stop there. Your spelling skills are comparable to that of a child! Are you not ashamed?! I also have to say something about the taste of your designs, (especially the backrounds) which is very poor. Perhaps you should set higher goals for the company, or maybe try your luck elsewhere. I am not trying to be rude, in fact I am trying to help you see your faults, and hoped you have learned from this letter.

Best wishes and goodluck!
a concerned citizen
no, I do not think I can entrust such people with my e-mail address. sorry.

I sent your site to a newsgoup of people whose main job it is to review, test and comment on websites. I did this as a favor because they really have help me out with some crossplatform browser stuff, and i thought they would enjoy it. For the most part you killed a bunch of them, they thought it was one of the funnest things they had every seen.
One person though sent back this response:

Viewing on a Power MAC Netscape 3.0 on a T1 line. 17" Monitor. My personal opinions, I hope they help.

There are a lot of spelling errors, not sure if there are meant to be mispelled words, but there are a lot. Also, some of the HTML has been caught on the site, some of the tags are showing because a ">" was not used to close the tags out.

ALSO: The first page (the "Big" window)...the animated "Bud Uglly Design" takes up almost my entire screen, and it is blured in a big way. It's difficult for me to read it. And I believe that is either a result from changing the size in your HTML, or making the image bigger in Photoshop, in either case, both of those ways creates a larger image, but blured. You'd have to RE-create the graphic in a larger size, rather than increase the size of the smaller version for it to be as clear as you'll want it.

Also...the Blinking. Whole paragraphs are blinking and that is VERY difficult to read. And again, this is my own opinion, but Blinking is best for that "Emphasized" word you want people to look at...like "FREE" or "WARNING". Too much of it makes people get a little wacky if you know what I mean.

Also...It's a great Logo, the animated "Bud Uglly" , and a very original name. Why not create a "Home" page with just that animated logo on it. It automatically grabs someone's attention, and they WILL click to enter into your next pages. Which could be your Menu pages..."Portfolio", "Fonts", "Effects"...etc.... the point is that everything is scattered even though all you have to do is scroll down. Keep in mind, people's eyes get tired, and so does their attention, so the more the different backgrounds you use for each topic the better.

Think of it this way, if the "Web" was a TV (and it now is) and people had remote controls, would they sit and watch everything you have to offer? Or would they blow right passed your site and move on. You have to keep their attention with excitement. Having to scroll down on the same background won't keep anyone's attention even if there are blinking words, there are WAY too many designers out there they can run accross, and you have to be the best, and most creative.

Good luck.

Very nice page! Maybe you could make the background worse? I often get irritated because it´s so hard to read the text against an ugly background pattern. That´s the only experience I did not have while reading your page. - Keep up the bad work!

Hey, fellows,
I loved your page from 6 months ago, but you've really gone over the line this time. The overload detracts from the humor -- it becomes more obnoxious than funny. Any chance the old page is still around somewhere? I have a friend who's planning a corporate web site and I wanted to direct her to you. ;-) BTW, I *do* enjoy the new pop-up window and the music. :)
A devoted fan and advocate,

Dear Berry Uglly, VP Marketoing, Etc.,
All I gotta say about Bud Uglly Designs is, you gotta have a spell checker what's nearly burnt out from tryin to unnderstan yer stuff. Y'all still might lack to see the video of Billyjeff n Hillarybob's firs date at Yale Law School. It's on the "Dunfergot" page of ma Website. Go to the bottom. Click the prior columns button at the bottom twice, er is it thrice? Y'all'll know it whenya see it.

Cong Billybob
Pee Ess: Where y'all done be located? Wanna come to the Blue Ridge Mountains, n shoot poll n suck down suds at the 441 Junction? They're yer kinda people in that joint. Jes be careful not to let enny ov em find out you graduated high school, if'n you did graduate high school.

Hi Billybob, I hop you are enjoying your new year. I was at te Bluridge mountains once and if I go again I will be sure to look up you! I did hit one of the mowntains with my van one time. I am in chacago illinoise.

Don't fall out of a window or anythink!

PS. Maybe you could get a twangchecker yousilf.

Bud, Berry, etc.,
Been a fan of your web design site since the late 80s. It's an inspiration! I've attached a QuickTime VR panoramic scene (bath.mov, 88k) that I created with the Bud Uglly aesthetic in mind (get the QTVR plug-ins at http://quicktime.apple.com/sw/). Feel free to use it on your site. I'd be honored! I made it with my low-res QuickCam in my bathroom; it involves a naked guy, a dog, and a Zip disk.

My 10,000 lawyers say you better quit spoofing my Internot Explorer or we'll fly over you and drop large bags of coins on you and crush you. Exscept for that part about "best viewed with Internot" on the Netscrappy page--he says that can stay.

What would you like to see in the future at Bud Uglly Design?

Umbrellas. Lots of umbrellas. And nothing about Iowa.

with the advent of Fish TV on cable and Web TV on the web and tv, maybe you could have a live video shot of a sea monkey tank. that is all

Still, without frames, the real rock bottom in tastelessnes remain to be acheived. A page where you get stuck in some frame somewhere and can't find out is still missing for Bud Ugly. Please do not rest on your disgusting laurels, there's still lower levels of revolting bad taste out there.

I think you shold add a flashing text box about 12 paragraphs long in 8 pt. type. Oh, yeah, don't forget to put it on a backgropund that is the same color as the type. I also think you need some graphics that take 5 minutes to load, and then rotate in a really jerky motion. That's cool.

1. Make theme music (Fur Eleese, isn't it?) more catchy. Maybe add a base, sax, and accordian. 2. Give some examples of bad wibpage design. 3. Make sure the speling and grammar is correct.
