Contribute to the new B3ta 404 page - last year we asked you to make some new 404 images for our page and you DID. OK, we were a bit late sticking them up but we've done it now so here's the all new 404 page! - and if you'd like to add your own image then we've reopened the challenge - please do and we'll bung the best ones in. UPDATE: Stuck the 404 page on github so if you want to fuck with it and make a diff version you can - and if we like it we'll stick it up.

We want to bring the newsletter back and we need your help. We've opened a Patreon to cover the time it takes each week and any money you could bung it to support this would help. 400 supporters is our goal - can you be one of them? https://www.patreon.com/b3ta

NEW B3TA NEWSLETTER OUT NOW - we've done our first newsletter for six months and figured the obvious thing to do would be to celebrate the 12 best B3ta projects made by our members in that time. This is high quality stuff. Tuck in.

No official newsletter this week - although we have seen a special subscriber only message to the list which you can't see unless you sub ha ha. Anyway it's not like we haven't been busy, check out both the Has Theresa May Resigned Yet? bot and also make sure you read Lord Buckhead's Manifesto. Wow. What an election. What a few days.

B3ta newsletter 674 - our fourth week back and there's a lot of stuff to talk about including saying goodbye to two B3ta heroes Roger Moore and of course Munkt0n. But it's not all sadness - there's the glorious Walkers Crisps trolling and some lovely songs. Really.

Read B3ta newsletter 659 as you've never read it before. You probably *haven't* read it before but you should. Amazing story of the week (again), some weird ways people have hoaxed Wikipedia, plus everyone gathering round to laugh at 1980s technology.

We're really pleased to announce some B3ta changes:

1. Front page now mobile responsive - go on have a look on mobile or drag the right bit of your browser window and make the site narrow. Swish eh?

2. The images on the the 'best of the board' column can now be 600px wide. This allows you, dear artists, to use more pixels for your jokes. HISTORY FACT: When we launched it was 280 pixels wide, then 400px and now 600px. That means we've MORE THAN DOUBLED the width. Exciting!

3. We've now got a Facebook page - Welcome to 2009!

Despite being April 1st, this isn't a joke. If you've got any feedback then add it to this thread, and thanks to Ferret for doing the code. Huzzah.
