What's Up with NACA?
The North American Chess Association website appears quite defunct. Their blog has not been updated since October. The scroll on the main page promises some things in the future, but the site has been up (off and on) for six months and has only deteriorated in quality, not improved. There are also large portions of the members area in an "under construction" state (complete with the pseudo-Latin filler text used by web designers). I wrote a review July 25 where I talked about some very promising articles on the site. Not only have there been no additions, but the articles I mention in my review are no longer on the site, even for members. As paid membership is required to access the site beginning today, I suggest that visitors take a watch and wait approach.... More evidence that organizations should not go online with a new site until everything is ready.
