Year charts
Year charts are now live for Level 6 users. 'Year' charts will contribute 5% of a chart's normal weight towards the overall rankings. A discussion on the scoring system can be found here.

In a year chart, you can only pick from albums released in the relevant year. You can still add albums to your list that are not already on the site, but if they are subsequently found to be released in the 'wrong' year, they will not contribute towards the rankings. (N.B. BEA uses the original year of release for each album, so you need to be aware that any albums that you add to your year charts are not re-releases of older albums, and the BEA year of release will be final (if BEA have this wrong, let us know and it will be corrected).

Display of IP addresses
Although somebody's IP address cannot identify anybody directly, it could be used in conjunction with other personal data to narrow down the possibilities. Therefore, BEA will now mask from view the first two octets of each IP address. Entire IP addresses can still be seen by data moderators (e.g. to help identify anybody trying to 'game' the site); but to increase member privacy, whole IP addresses will no longer be visible to everybody else.

'New additions' threshold
To help stop the admin area of the site being overloaded with new albums, users will no longer be able to add more than 40 'new' albums to the site within a three day period (unless they help out with data moderation, in which case, editing will be automatically re-enabled). You can still make unlimited changes to your charts if the number of 'new' albums falls under this threshold, so most people will be unaffected. (A 'new' album is one that is not already on BEA.)

Comment votes
An option has been added to neutralise your comment vote on the individual album, band and chart pages.

Support us
If you'd like to support BEA, you can do so in any of the following ways:

  • Link to BEA from other websites. Talk about us on other websites, create a buzz and get people to check us out (but be careful not to do this in a spammy way!)
  • Buy your music via BEA. If you discover a new album or track, with help from BEA, use the iTunes, Amazon and eBay buttons on this site to buy it from your favourite store. BEA gets a small commission (pennies), and it helps to pay our hosting fees.

  • Use our chart widget. Share your chart on Facebook (or any other website)! You can find our chart widget on the resources page.

Enjoy the site and more soon...
