Latest features

  • 1st Jan 2014: To help improve the quality of our data, it is now possible for logged-in users to flag duplicate performances. This is done using the new Flag dup. link displayed on each performance. We have also introduced a page for generating league tables of leading ringers.
  • 4th Sep 2013: In recent months a number of organisations have been asking The Ringing World to introduce advertising on BellBoard and as a result we will be doing so in early September. We hope that users of BellBoard do not find this intrusive and encourage everyone to support our advertisers.
  • 22nd Aug: Several new features have been added over the last few months. View all compositions that have been machine-proved, or use our online prover. For instructions click the ? icon. The Amend page has filters to find performances you have not sent for print. And when searching, a | can be used to denote alternatives.
  • 16th Jan: To celebrate the first anniversary of BellBoard's launch, a year ago today, we have created new pages showing all our featured performances, and the most-liked performances ever. There is also a new page where you can view statistics on where you (or another ringer) typically ring in the circle, whether you've circled your local tower, and so on.
  • 20th Dec 2012: You can now configure email alerts so that you receive notification by email whenever a performance matching your search criteria is submitted to BellBoard. Also, the order of search results can be configured by selecting Display advanced functionality.
