EDIT MODE

When not playing with SPACESHIPS! I managed to get this stuff done:

API Enhancements - Some new functions and tweaks to existing ones. Details are documented at the API page.

MOC Designer - Several changes to the MOC submission page. If you are building an alternate/mod/subset there is a new option to pre-populate your parts list with the parts from the set you choose.

Inventories - Admins and MOC designers can now make bulk changes to sets or MOCs. For anyone making these changes, please be aware that they are immediately visible to all users.

Set Layout - I tweaked the layout of the set/moc details pages to try and reduce the clutter and make the important stuff easier to find. I also made use of the Brickipedia API to display short description snippets from the wiki pages describing the set.

Bricksafe Integration - I have started to make more use of Bricksafe on Rebrickable pages. If a MOC links to a Bricksafe page with images, those images will appear on the MOC's details page. Later on I will provide more options for the designer when submitting their MOC, for now it's automatic.

Cloudflare issues - I have fixed long running imports of files that were timing out with a Cloudflare message (the import actually worked if you reloaded the page after a while). I have added an img subdomain for serving most static content and am now only using Cloudflare there. This might slow down some of the javascript optimisation it was doing, or it might help spread out the requests over multiple sub-domains. We'll see.

Other Fixes - Fixed issues with: Lost Parts editing; use of mixed case emails; non-ascii CAD file uploads; improved MPD parsing; pick set sliders; changing MOC/Set images no longer allow invalid URLs; Build searches now include sets with > 1050 parts.

Other Stuff - I setup Twitter cards so if anyone bothers to tweet links it will show full photos and descriptions. The "Buy this part" table on parts details pages is now initially collapsed. Added a new admin tool to help with creating new parts.

If you have suggestions for a change or new feature, you can let me know via the Suggestions Forum.

    You will need to tweak the input to the "Brickipedia API" because you get the wrong quote on some sets. check the *-2 sets

    Bricksafe Integration rocks! It just adds more value to the MOC page. And keep it as thumbnails or equivalent size.

    does this mean that if I want multiple images on one MOC I should create a folder on bricksafe and use the folder link and all the images I put in that folder should be available on my MOC page, or did I missundertood this improvement?
