The American Go Association’s new website launched on Saturday, June 30. While most of the new site’s changes are behind the scenes and will provide a more up-to-date, robust and flexible structure for the site, users will also notice a cleaner and more streamlined visual design.
Most of the old site’s content has been retained, as well as cleaned up and updated where necessary, and is accessible via nested navigation bars along the left-hand side. Three popular areas — Upcoming Events, Ratings and Latest Go News — are quickly accessible via the navbar across the top of the page, while the center of the home page continues to feature news stories which are updated daily.
Well over a year of work has gone into developing and implementing the new site. “We owe a huge debt of thanks and appreciation to the dedicated team of volunteers — Chris Garlock, Roger Schrag Steve Colburn, Joshua Simmons, Justin Kramer, Jason Preuss, Jonathan Bresler, Roy Laird, Phil Waldron, Sam Zimmerman, David Arteche and Bob Gilman — who put so much of their time and energy into this project,” said AGA President Allan Abramson. “This updated and upgraded site will enable the AGA to continue to provide the go community here and around the world with high quality information about the world of go. It’ll also enable new go players to quickly and easily access that world.”
