This will be the last significant site update of 2013, the main purpose of which is to address a few performance issues. The biggest change is one that you can't really see, but should improve performance at certain times of day. The next site update will be in 2014, and will contain quite a few more changes. I anticipate releases being quarterly in 2014 (subject to commitments outside of BEA.)

  • The site search index is now real time so now there should be no delay between adding an album to the site and it appearing in the list of suggestions when editing your chart.
  • Renamed 'band' to artist across the whole site - http://www.besteveralbums.com/phpBB2/vi...php?t=8027
  • The country flag of each artist is now displayed in the charts - http://www.besteveralbums.com/phpBB2/vi...php?t=8356
  • Added an 'edit chart' link on each chart (for the chart creator) and within the confirmation message when your chart is updated - http://www.besteveralbums.com/phpBB2/vi...php?t=8879
  • Maximum size of rank notes increased to 4,096 characters - http://www.besteveralbums.com/phpBB2/vi...php?t=8229
  • Added a default sort order for custom charts on the My Charts page (which can be modified from your profile) - http://www.besteveralbums.com/phpBB2/vi...=8778&
  • Feedback no longer allowed, or displayed, for banned user charts
  • Fixed duplicate chart entries when viewing the overall chart for certain dates in history
  • Albums where a year of release, artwork, or track-listing are unable to be located are now hidden from the respective filters on the 'newly added albums' page
  • Album artwork is no longer able to be added if it's over 200 KB (slows down the loading of pages)
  • Fixed bug where blank track names could be added
  • Fixed issue where the site search automatically took you down to the other search box when on the 'Search' page
