    Direct links to colour/setlist

    That's simply awesome. This will make inventorying bulk lots so much quicker. I just can't get over how much you're listening to the community for things like this and how quickly you include them. Thank you very much!

    Well I must assume you can download a instruction you bought more than ones, so maybe someone did.

    When I'm starting a build, I often first gather all the needed parts before building (due to the way I store my LEGO,I don't want to stand up for each part ) I think it would be handy have a page with the partlist with part, color and needed quantity, and behind that a column whit a checkbox that you can mark when you have found that part, maybe with a textbox where you can fill in the number of parts you have found if you don't have them all yet. Ideal would be some kind of refresh-function that refreshes the part-list and leaves out all parts that you have already found. For commercial purpuses: add the link that makes a BrickLink/BrickOwl wanted list of all remaining parts? Hope I'm explaining it clearly enough like this

    Minifig Lower Body Category

    Hi Everyone, As I'm sure you've all noticed, I have been doing a lot of work on the minifig categories over the past year-ish(?) I have left the two hardest categories last for obvious reasons, Minifig Upper Body will be started shortly (hopefully). The lower body category actually hasn't been too bad (Heads was way harder!) The most challenging thing was to bring the numbering standards back in line with how they were originally set up on this site but over the last 3-4 years have been ignored. This had affected different colored legs and the newer Multi-color injected legs. I have adjusted a lot of parts to correctly reflect their: a) Assembly numbering standard, b) Pattern numbering standard, and c) Print numbering standard. So for example if a part has Black hips on a different colored upper leg (the parts color in its set) and Yellow 'Boots' (multi-color injection) it has the number 21019(part number for multi-color injections)x026(Assembly number for Black Hips)pat02(Pattern number for Yellow Boots on Black Hips) 21019x026pat02. It's simpler for hips that have the same color as the part, so for Same colored Hips and Upper Legs the number is 21019c00, add the relevant pattern number for lower legs (Boots), eg Light Bluish Gray is pat021, so it becomes 21019c00pat021. These numbers aren't new to the site. I created nothing, I'm just implementing what we already had started but failed to continue. Now that's clear as mud here's the reason for my post. Lego EID images are not very clear when looking at the MCI parts. Some I was able to tell from photos that have been submitted, some I was able to check my personal collection for. Some are my best educated guess, If I wasn't sure I left it as it was. This means I may have missed some, or even changed some incorrectly. I need your help to determine any errors that I may have made. And to submit rear images of the MCI parts so it's clear to users that those parts aren't just prints but are different patterns of Legs. Take a look at the categories and let me know what you think. (please be kind, it's been a lot of hours work, haha) Thanks, Jared EDIT: Forgot to say, category is not 100% complete, still 300ish parts left to sort out.

    Direct links to colour/setlist

    I have a suggestion that would make navigation much faster in some cases and I think it's probably not that big a deal to implement. At least I hope. When you click on a part in a set's inventory, you are taken to a part page where you can see how many you have of that part by colour/partlist. But then, if you want to go to one of these specific colour/partlist page to edit the quantity, there is no direct way. You can link to the partlist and from there filter and search for the part but you already had found the part and the partlist so it seems like a link is missing somewhere. Could the numbers in the colour/partlist grid be links to this page? Admittedly, I'm less sure of the implications for the grid in the part summary popup window but I imagine that would probably be relatively straightforward for the full page version. I can see many cases where that would be useful but here's the one I most often face. I'm putting together a used set and some parts are missing. If I don't have the part in my loose parts, I mark it as lost. That goes well. But if I find that I have some loose ones of this part, I will instead reduce my number of loose parts since some are now assigned to this set to replace the missing ones. That's when I find myself doing the running around I described above and could go much faster with these links.

    submitting old set image

    A catalog image counts as an image. That text only appears when we have zero image for a set. But we are always eager to improve images. Especially for older sets. You need to upload the image to bricksafe. Then go to the set in question, click Submit Change Request button on the lower right (scroll down a bit). Paste the link to the image in the CR. Hope that helps. thanks

    Ok, I saw there were many, that'S why I asked here before sending the requests. If I see some in other categories, I'll send requests.

    As a suggestion, it would be useful to have an additional toggle option in the Inventory Options on the a Set page to "Highlight Lost Parts". Perhaps since missing parts are red, owned parts are green, lost parts should be orange? Alternatively, instead of yet another toggle option, just extend the existing "Highlight Missing Parts" toggle to also highlight "Lost" parts (but in a different colour like orange)? And since it's related, perhaps either an additional toggle to "Hide Lost Parts" or, again, extend the existing "Hide Missing Parts" toggle to include "Lost" parts as well. (See attached) My personal preference would be to extend the existing "Missing Part" toggles to avoid more clutter in the Options menu, but I'm sure there will people who use the existing functions in a particular way which would get disrupted I actually assumed that this was how it worked from the start, because when you start out with not many sets, it effectively does. It's only once you get multiple sets with the same part that the difference between how "missing" and "lost" parts becomes apparent. I realise there is the "Lost Parts" view under the MY LEGO menu, but that's like an overall summary across all sets. I feel that a quick way of checking which parts are lost from a given set when checking it's inventory list would be useful.

    Thanks Jared. That's useful to know. I was planning to break out the light box and take some photos as I've done in the past. But I've also been recently submitting change requests to improve the generic descriptions on some printed minifig parts, and those were taken largely from BL (and noted as such in the change request). So your comments here are helpful. You may want to consider adding some text about that to the change request dialog.

    Hi seejay. while I can’t help with your issue I would just like to take a second to reinforce a key policy. We cannot use information from BrickLink. So when the above gets fixed and you start submitting images the images must be taken and owned by you. Please take care when copying descriptions and numbers too as we do things slightly differently to BrickLink (but that’s not photo related just for any new people reading this, haha) Thanks, Jared

    Set 10152

    Thea has done the research for this, so this particular case is hers to decide. I am not going to interfere with that, but I do have a general observation. There are probably two dozen LEGO colors that we don't recognize as separate colors, and which are currently mapped to an existing Rebrickable color. If you look at our color table, all the double entries in the LEGO column represent at least one LEGO color we don't recognize as separate color. As an example, both LEGO colors 316 Titanium Metallic and 148 Metallic Dark Grey are mapped to Rebrickable color 148 Pearl Dark Gray. Some of these LEGO colors are virtual, they were introduced in earlier versions of LDD, and removed again in LDD 4 (probably never used in real parts); some are only used for a single occasion (Metallic Red for a single minifig); but LEGO is increasing their color pallete again (consider the Sprayed Gold for the new Lunar Model Creator Expert), and if they re-use color IDs that are currently mapped to another Rebrickable color, we will be forced to split colors, like we did with Pastel Blue. Obviously we can change the color of some parts in set inventories, and the resulting build problems with an owned set can be easily corrected by removing the set from your set list, and then adding it again with the newly changed inventory. However, we can never change colors in user's part lists. So this basically reverts to the same discussion we had about the impact of inventory changes. Yes, if we correct an error in an inventory, your part collection may change. The same applies for color corrections. But arguing that we should stop correcting errors because it might impact part collections is both unattainable and discriminatory against new users, with small part collections. Our users expect our data to be as accurate as possible, and rightly so, and many of you are actively helping us to correct any errors, for which we are very grateful. Sometimes these correcting can have a bigger impact then expected, and if we can, we will try to help you solve those problems. But please, do not ask us to revert a warranted correction on account of part collection continuity, because such a request is basically asking us to stop correcting errors, and we can't do that. Take care, Simom

    BI downloads vs BI sales inconsistency?

    Before we approve a (Premium) MOC, we always download a copy to make sure the instructions are correct. After that, we delete the copy.

    Early LEGO History (1949 - 1965)

    I may study how the LEGO logo is made and then give the M a try. Mayby even see if I can add some more parts to the tiny library.

    Show lost parts from set page

    Hi. When viewing a set that is in my sets lists, I haven't been able to find an easy way to see which parts are marked as lost. Instead, I have been opening My Lost Parts and then selecting the set from the Sets drill down filter. It's quite a few steps to get from one to the other, and there are two points in the process where I have to wait for unnecessary stuff to load, and I think it would make sense to have a button or link or something on the set page which lets you see lost parts easier.

    Remove all parts of set in My Lost Parts

    I suggest that we add a button to remove all the parts of a set in My Lost Parts instead of remove part by part. Thanks
