    The definition of beam is something "long" that connects two sides. In order to be long, it would have to be more than one unit of measure.

    Using TLG terms to define the category would be confusing at times. For example, TLG calls part 32557 a Crossblock. 32557 is a part that could fit in the Connector or Beam category. It is up to the individual catalog creator which to choose.

    Since the shape of 18654 is more commonly known as connector, I would not move it from the Connector category. However, adding the words "Half Beam"(since it is half the size of 43857) to the description would bring it up in general searches for Beams. I will do that, and also make note of the relationship to 43857.
    • This part doesn't really fit the definition of a half beam.

      Half beams are normally half the width of regular beams/lift arms as measured perpendicular to the pin holes, as opposed to half the length.

      Adding to the description [Beam] or [Beam 1x1] would be more appropriate.
      • I've been thinking about it, and I agree that it cannot be considered a half beam because there are various lengths of beams.

        There are several factors that need to be considered that deal with more than just this part. I would like to take this discussion to the rebrickable Forum at this point.

    This part shouldn't be stocked under connectors, because it doesn't connect anything 8'), and thus it's sometimes hard to find when browsing for it in the own parts inventory.

    Proposal: move to "Technic Beams", since TLG also calls the thingy a "Beam 1x1". Alternatively: "Technic Special).
