What happened to the free side stories? No mention of them on the new site or forums.

Some content from the old BEA Home page(s) was not carried over because it didn't conform to the new format. You may have to specifically request the content you'd like to see restored.

Please refer to this thread...

...and in particular to this post...

Which sounds like they decided to convert the BEA into a Morphs site and nothing else (other than the Forum and Addventure)...

I don't remember what else there used to be on the main menu, but wasn't there more categories of things than Morphs and Stories?  Didn't we have videos and games sections too?

Granted, I don't think any of them had been updated in years...

Right, there were webzines like R&D and BEhavior, text-only archives of expansion/fetish stories, and free and pay versions of A Cup Of Chili containing large collections of text stories, comics, manga, hentai, and morphs. That stuff didn't fit neatly into the pin/board paradigm, so it seems to have been "skipped over" during the conversion.

Mariano has said that users should list things they miss from the "old" BEA on the reddit page he set up at https://www.reddit.com/r/BEArchive/. I'm concerned that he'll gauge by the responses there whether to resurrect various features, and many users won't notice the one sentence that describes where to state their preferences.

(I'm also struggling to understand why he'd go to reddit for something we could more easily and intuitively do right here in our own forum.)

The easiest way to avoid letting others change things is by the ol' bait and switch. If you have fucked up and you get called on it but do not want to admit or actually change anything you did, you tell people, " Go here and I'll do something ", but make it difficult to get there. Since the BEA is NOT a necessity for survival, most won't work hard to make an effect and then the powers to be can say to themselves, " see, it's ok, they don't really care " and continue on their merry way. The BEA has been ruined.  :'(

Why on God's green earth would they want to get rid of MarkT's and Chili's stories and the archive of R&D and BEhavior????? Way to erase the great legacy of the late great doggo :( :( :(
