Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone that took part in the 2019 user survey. I've posted some survey feedback in the suggestions forum which has been used to come up with a roadmap for 2020 and beyond.
Since the last site update, several new features have been introduced including newer image formats for album art (to make pages smaller to download, particularly beneficial for mobile users), and also fixed the issue that some people were experiencing with regular logouts (apologies for the inconvenience while that was happening).
There was an algorithm change at the start of 2020 which seems to have settled in fairly well. Spotify playlists have been added for all years going back to 1970, and decade charts back to the 1950s (more will follow). CSV exports have been enhanced with the album and artist now in separate columns and the addition of the unique ID. BEA also now allows the downloading of other people's ratings (since these are public anyway). A lot more stuff is in the pipeline, and sorry if everything can't be done straight away. It all takes more time than you can imagine.

A lot of hard work happens in the background to keep BEA running, and it's especially difficult to do this when we can't pay our hosting fees :(
