So you know how I wrote that my guilty pleasure was reality TV?

I was trying to think of a reality show that'd be a little more in line with my life, something in my field. Although I'm interested in people with problem pets, kids, houses, restaurants, they're not really me.

So my pitch for a show? Fix my website!

A team of experts strolls into a home, office, or event and tells the tech staff everything they're doing wrong about their internet presence...

...

Your CSS is a disaster! This isn't responsive at all! Don't you know flat interfaces are trending now?

What's this animated GIF in the background, Geocities called from 1997 they want their website back!

Your blog sucks! A post can't just be three words and a stock photo, what are you saying? There's nothing sharable here!

Everyone hates your clickbait titles! Quit starting every article with "you won't believe..."

I added a quote mark in a form field and totally exposed a sql injection vulnerability, who's running your security audits! Get in line!

...

I'm not qualified to be the "expert" per se for this show, but I'd be a huge fan.

Call it "www underconstruction" and we got a show! If I had a cigar, I'd wave it saying "you got moxie, kid!"

This gave me a laugh.
I don't know what kind of reality TV show I would like to see made. I kind of thought the point of reality TV was getting a supposed insight into some other kind of life. I used to be glued to 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom when I was 16 and spending my days doing stuff like climbing trees for example. It's interesting you would like to see something in your field. Funnily enough, a pretty popular show centered around something I devoted much of my youth to (dance) was shot in my town and I have never even seen one episode. I have avoided it like the plague actually haha.

I might watch that, though I've been a programmer too,  I'd feel bad for the person who spent several hours on a website only to have someone be like this is terrible what were you thinking?  I'd imagine at some point my websites or blogs would come into question too.  There was in fact a website dedicated to this, it seems to be gone, but it was sort of funny.  They picked the worst geocities sites and tore them a new one, those and the fancy flash websites that take twenty minutes to load.
