Our son and daughter (3yr and 1 yr) have recently gotten into playing with a couple of the lego kits we have bought. I used to build back when I was young but the landscape has changed drastically. Looking for help on getting a collection up and running.
We currently own the following sets: 10702 - Creative Building Set 31047 - Propeller Plane 31028 - Sea Plane 4496 -Fun with Building Tub
Interests include anything geek (Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr Who, Harry Potter, etc...) robots, dinosaurs and cars / planes.
Looking for suggestions on what to do next? The Fun with Building tub gives us a lot of "standard" bricks but little in the way of unique parts / pieces. Suggestions on a couple of sets to augment the collection and provide some substance to build various things?
We liked the lego ideas books but again a lot of those seem to require special parts / pieces. While it would be easy to spend a fortune on a collection we are looking for suggestions under $200 for the time being. So perhaps one big set and then a couple smaller / medium sized sets?
Is it worth it to buy bulk pieces off eBay or craigslist or stick to sets for now?
As it seems, the API-documentation and test-site has been build with Swagger.
Will you provide a swagger-file? This would make it very easy to generate a client to talk to the API.
Will you also describe the response message models in more detail on the API-site (can also be done directly from within the swagger-file)?
If you need help for that, I can help (and also test the API)...
(Accedentialy) I tried https://beta.rebrickable.com/api/v3/lego/parts/3001/colors/11/ from the API-testpage. Color 11 is not defined (for this part); but the error-behaviour is strange: it returns an HTML-page (something with "Bad gateway").
I think it should return a count of zero instead or, much better, an error-indication in the returned JSON.
Can you explain how the API in general reacts on errors (old one returned a SUCCESS, in a somehow unusual way :-), but we could examine that)?
I have a question regarding the redesigned lost parts page.
First of all I like the flexibility of the new lost parts page with filtering options and sorting ability. Much better than just listing by set (without any options) like before.
My question regards the lost parts tab on the item details popup dialog. I have several parts that are missing from more than one set. The lost parts list correctly lists the total amount of missing parts from that kind combined from all sets its missing in. In the lost parts tab on the item details dialog however only the missing items of one set are listed. And it isn't even necessarily the set with the most lost parts of that kind. I would expect a list of all the sets that i am missing this item from. How else should i remove missing parts from a specific sets?
Last year I created this forum user 'Geever'. Recently I tried to log in and failed (it must have been my fault), but I also forgot about my previous forum registration, so I created 'geever' with the same email address. It seems that I ended up with two unusable accounts, as the forum doesn't allow either to log in (maybe it is getting confused about the multiple records for the same email?). I tried using both names and the email address too. The only way for me to log in is to ask for a password reset, and stay online after opening the verification link.
I feel silly for that mistake, but at least it has revealed a bug in the forum setup.
Could you please remove this user from the forum? (I prefer to keep the 'geever' one)
Also, as the password reset facility is email address based, I suggest making it unique in the underlying account database, to avoid similar problems in the future.
