The new naqt.com

We've just completed an extensive redesign of naqt.com.

If you see anything that looks out of place, confusing, wrong, or nonfunctional, please contact our tech team (tech@naqt.com).

The new layout looks great! Much more streamlined and easier to find information, which might encourage more teams to attend NAQT competitions. Excellent job (I know this isn't a suggestion or issue, but I just wanted to give my two cents)!

I like the map for upcoming tournaments. It would be good to add more filters, e.g. by sets (so that you can find sites that are playing sets you haven't heard yet) and dates.

We're not sure what a good user interface for this would look like (keeping in mind that we regularly have dozens of sets in use, and would need to account for question-sharing between our national-format sets and state-specific sets). Suggestions welcome.

In the filter area, you'd have a filter by set that would include only the current year's sets.

That doesn't work for a variety of reasons, but how's this?

I like it. Was that always there and I missed it or did you add it? :)
