on this site why has chapter 149 been eliminated?

I would say because you have not moved your site hosting to the NAWCC.

There are only 34 chapters on there.

Not a big number out of how many are left.

The policy was then changed to what end?

In order to promote horology and the constant whining about loss of members, wouldn't one think that the leading watch collectors' club and single internet nawcc chapter be included?

My understanding ( could be wrong ) is that following the mis appropriation of a certain web site the NAWCC made moves to set up a hosting service of their own.
It may also have had something to do with finding a way to utilize excess capacity at their end.

Chapters were then invited to move their sites onto that service at a zero or low cost fee.

In this way if the same thing happened at a future date the NAWCC would have ultimate control of the data. Some liked this idea and some did not.

This idea then morphed a bit into the NAWCC community you pointed to above.

Thus I believe the list is a list of those chapters that have taken up the offer rather than a list of all chapters.

Since 149 has not gone down this path ( as far as I am aware ) it does not appear on the list.

I just went to the NAWCC main site, logged in, clicked on 'community', and found Chap 149 listed. Initially I did not until I refreshed the page.
