- Collect and communicate information related to the BioWare Forum closure and impending closure of Legacy BioWare Social Network (BSN)
- Develop the BSN Project Inventory (BSNPI), a searchable spreadsheet that can be used by the community to reference information about all existing projects (such as where they can be downloaded)
- Contact Project authors who don't yet have their mods on other sites to be certain they are aware of the closure and suggest they host their mods elsewhere
- Re-publish content originally hosted on BSN Projects to Nexus, ONLY when adequate permission accompanies the original project (which is almost never the case) and when the mod isn't already hosted elsewhere
BCN is an ongoing effort, but is now operating in legacy mode with minimal staff. This is because most portions of the project are finished.
- The BSNPI is complete. All valid projects have been inventoried, with the exception of the excessive amount of small coalesced mods for Mass Effect 2. We inventoried the larger and more heavily-downloaded mods, only.
- Project Authors. We've contacted all project authors we were able to. Most didn't get back to us. We'll continue to update the spreadsheet if any authors contact us in the future.
- BCN Website. The website has been overhauled now that Legacy BSN has removed. We've retained the blog feature of the site but expect there will be little to no new information to communicate. If some event develops, of course we'll announce it.
- Project Content. The inventory itself is complete, but we have a small number of projects left to upload to Nexus. Once this is finished, we can't upload any other projects without creator permission.
- 26 Jan 2018 - The website overhaul is complete. If you're looking for information about BCN and the inventory, looking there is your best bet.
- 01 Jan 2018 - The website has been updated with a post about the closure. More updates to the site and inventory will occur over this month.
- 17 Dec 2017 - BSN has been closed, without warning from what we can tell. Inventory is complete. Expect an update to the website soon.
- 22 Oct 2016 - Inventory is almost complete. Spreadsheet is now mostly read-only, allowing only comments.
- 16 Oct 2016 - Tarshana is now Lead Inventorier.
- 16 Oct 2016 - Instruction sheet updated.
- 16 Oct 2016 - Lots of sheet QA going on; inventoriers should take a look.

- 13 Sept 2016 - We have a new sticky thread on Nexus! The original thread is here.
- 09 Sept 2016 - New "BSN Modders" page on the website, aimed specifically at BSN Project authors
- 08 Sept 2016 - New BSN message upon logging into the site. Makes clear all player content will be removed in the near future.
