Oh a big one I thought though of; scrolling badge sections! Where people have their site badges in a marquee, so you have to sit there and wait in order to see all the sites badges they have. I think that's really disrespectful because it makes it so much harder for people to see the badges; its a bit like saying "I don't really care about these badges I just have them as decoration"

Oof, gotta agree with this one. Especially if they get faster as you hover... like, what's the point of having buttons anymore?!

Websites that almost exclusively bright graphics for everything is bad for when I'm viewing it at night

I'm kind of the opposite- bright and calm aesthetics are fine, but if a site has super dark graphics exclusively, it bums me out.

Quick flashing lights bother me, as well; I'm not seizure-prone, but it just strains my eyes. I can stare at a white screen on my 90-brightness monitor all day, but if it started flashing between white and light grey, I'm out.

A list of pet peeves that I have
  • When they have their ENTIRE blinkie/stamp/button collection on the homepage.Just makes it look cluttered.
  • When there are images over text.It makes it hard to read.
  • When the text and the background look like they're merging together

Mine is Autoplay...

It can get kind of annoying when I´m listening to music/podcast and then I open this site and it blares music.

Like just make it optional. you don´t need autoplay.

As a Firefox user, there's an additional annoyance when it comes to this sort of thing. Firefox has a feature that automatically disables things like autoplay, so when a site suddenly starts playing music when I haven't allowed it to, it throws me into a bit of confusion.

I haven't seen anyone mention this and I do love a little rant, so I'd like to add: Links to the webmaster's social media, especially if those links are on the homepage.

At least in web revival circles, I didn't come to someone's personal website to get directed back out to instagram or the like. I get why people do it -- a lot of people have the majority of their backlog and following on various social media sites. It makes sense to just say "Hey, there's a lot more of the things I've made on these other sites" rather than repost it. But still.

This one is thankfully not nearly as popular as it used to be, but anytime people use right-click disable scripts or put rants in their pages about not right-clicking things. It doesn't prevent bad actors from taking things, it just makes things difficult for everyone else!!!!

Oh man, I forgot all about that! I remember the trick I learned as a kid was "press enter on the keyboard while still holding down the right mouse button" to be a HACKERMAN and get the context menu to appear. It didn't stop us even as tiny tots! And I just remember wanting to, like, save cool pokemon gifs and stuff, it wasn't for use on my own website or anything. How silly that it became so prevalent!

I don't like it if a website goes 100% width. It just looks so uncomfortable to read and all the lines get really long! I prefer it if it flexes across my screen to cover only 60% in the center or so.

If you're gonna join a web ring, please don't remove the web ring links from your site without getting yourself removed from the list!

It's a drag to realise that both of your immediate neighbours have basically cut you off from the rest of the ring.
