Worst Sites Ever

fuoristrada_service

Innauguro today a new page: "Worst Sities Ever". I was undecided whether to create a category to be filled with a new site every time, or if you list all the sites on the same page. I opted for the second option, also because it will not be a regularly updated section. Evaluate at a later time (if successful) whether to create a special category.

The new page will have the only purpose of listing (as the name implies) the worst sites in circulation, what did not meet standards, those inusabili, those look bad, those designed without criteria, etc.. A huge calderone the worst of the web. Find the link in the menu on top of the site "W.S.E.", is going to "Worst Sities Ever", the worst sites ever made.
