Default Chesscafé?! -+

Off-topic to offramp's question: whatever happened to Taylor Kingston!? LOL.


I wrote to Taylor after he moved to CA.

Chess cafe was one of 3 or 4 US based chess sites which had reasonable chess playing articles for mid level players about actually playing chess, plus a forum. The forum had its usual dozen main voices, and they liked what they liked, to such degree that they killed it by disliking all outside their group. On the whole they were not stronger players, just strongly opinionated conservatives.

Otherwise the magazine went the same way ∏ having had sales rights for USCF, there was then a dispute and without any other income the owner declined further subsidy of the site.
