June 2018 Site update
From albummaster on Sunday 3 June 2018
Just wanted to keep everybody in the loop regarding the long overdue site update. A revamped version of BEA is being worked on almost every day, but it's taking a little longer than planned. Earlier this year, the code was in a position where some changes could be pushed live, but it risked destabilising the live site during the busiest time of year, so the changes were held back and work has continued in the background. The reason things are taking so long is that the existing back-end of the site needs completely overhauling to allow a cleaner separation between the different layers of BEA, and this process is still continuing as there is quite a large code base to modify.

I'll keep everybody posted with progress, but please bear with me. In the meantime, enjoy the site & more soon.
