  1. Hi and Welcome to the Rebrickable Forum. The reason you are seeing a higher number of parts in your list is the addition of spare parts. Check at the bottom of the set inventory to see the spare parts that will be added.
  2. I just did a search for black minifig accessories. I included unused and printed parts. The results were only 477. I also checked some other colors that are used frequently and none were over 500. So 500 is sufficient for this category.
  3. Admins are very aware of the problem. Admins have been trying to get Nathan to break down the Minifig category into at least the 4 major body parts- hair, head, torso assembly, and legs and hips assembly. Even that won't really solve the 500 limit problem, but it would be a start.
  4. I think this one is just fine. So much better that the previous one.
  5. @plastic.ati I've saved the current picture address for 6881-1. It looks like the same picture that is used for the instructions at BrickLink, so it would be good to change it. If you decide the old one is better than yours, I can change it back. A link to the back of the box picture will be fine for now. I would make it the first one in the list. I know the links don't look all that good, but hopefully there will be more options in the next revision.
  6. Looks good to me. Do you still have the box? It would be nice to have the actual picture you used.
  7. I'm going to put this to @Nathan because I have no knowledge in this area.

    Part Images

    @legolijntje I nominate you to do the scans for minifigs. Paul's came out even worse than Simon's.
  9. Please post to the missing sets topic. This thread is for minifigs, not polybags.
  10. I have a box on order but it hasn't arrived yet. Mail is a little slow right now here in South Texas.
  11. Nathan is working on something for sets similar to our normalizing for parts. I don't know what impact adding the -1 to the current Rebrickable 5004932 would have for the 62 users with it in their lists. I've added a mapping to correct the Brickset link on the set page. Give the cache 24 hours to pick that up, and if it's still causing problems after that, let me know.
  12. One thing to keep in mind is that B models must have official instructions from lego.com Also B models are designated b1, b2, b3, etc. I made the mistake of adding a C model and now I can't fix it because there are members with it in their set lists.

    Part Images

    Your post is quite timely and the answer is Yes if they are good quality. I wanted to test part scans myself and had given my husband the task of scanning some minifig torsos and legs in the morning when he gets up. We had tried it a few years ago without good results, but we have a new scanner now so I'm hoping it will be better. It would be especially helpful for dual sided torsos. I don't know about old flags with those fragile clips though. It would be a shame if they got damaged.
  14. You want the broken/damaged list inventoried in your parts count, and not inventoried in your parts count, at the same time. This can't be done. What you could do is create a Custom List for just your broken/damaged parts. Parts in a Custom List do not show in your part count, but they would still be "inventoried". (you have a record of them.) When you need 5 of part A, and your part count only shows 4, you could check the custom list to see if you have a broken one. It would be easier than trying to go through several lists, and more accurate than using the missing parts list.
  15. If the part you want to change is already in the MOC, click on it to bring up the Edit Tab and make the changes. If you need to add an additional new part, go to the part, click on Use this part, and add to the MOC by typing in your moc number as MOC-XXXX in the Set Inventory Box. You should have the rights to make these changes to your own MOCs. If you still have problems, let us know.
  16. Yes I was referring to BL's quantities in comparison to Rebrickable's. This also shows you how wide the line is between too few and too many. It is just not possible to be consistently optimistic or pessimistic. All we can do is take the information we have from various sources and make a judgement call.
  17. I finally made it to level 9 because of adding all the Duplo sets. Only 59,000 points to catch up to you...lol Thanks for the good wishes. I'm going to get some sleep now.

    DUPLO (at last)

    A quick update- I'm currently in the path of Hurricane Harvey. We are supposed to be under heavy rains for the next 4-5 days. My internet connection comes and goes, so I've just been adding Duplo sets directly from the download now while I can. I'll make corrections/additions whenever I can. Please hold any change requests or Forum posts about missing Duplo parts.
  19. Hi Marchel, I'm currently in the path of Hurricane Harvey and my internet connection comes and goes. I'll put this @Nathan and could you send him a direct private message about this.
  20. Please use the change request on the specific part detail page for this type of information. Change Requests go directly to the System list for Admins, and also make it easier to apply the correction. We ask that Forum posts be reserved for new members that haven't yet reached the necessary level to submit a Change Request. If you must use the Forum, it is helpful to combine several similar items in this topic in one post. Each post here generates an email to at least 10 addresses.
  21. This is something that @Nathan will have to answer, because he is the only one that can approve MOCs.

    Browsing MoC's

    In order to have the best server performance, the 'Search for all MOCs' function is limited to 500 at a time. Using the different Theme/Category and Year slidebar options is the best way to see as many as possible.
  23. I believe I supplied an answer to most of this question in the topic about Spare Parts in the High Speed Passenger Train. BrickLink has the most active catalog, with contributions from members who open multiple sets. Rebrickable relies on the spare parts listed there as a checklist for spare parts submitted here until someone raises a question. If you know of another reliable site that lists spare parts, I will be happy to include them in the checklist. Regarding the Change Request you submitted--If you have a look at the BL spare parts listed for the set, you will see that, to use your terms, Rebrickable is optimistic for one and pessimistic for the other. And I will also mention that the Admin responding to your Change Request is the same person who did a review of the set for Rebrickable. If you would still like to have members vote on the question, it needs to be submitted in the Suggestions or Help Topics. There is no voting mechanism in this topic.
  24. I took some time away from Duplo to add the Destiny's Bounty basic minifig parts (because my husband is building it and I had the book available). These are VERY basic descriptions and temporary part numbers that will be updated as we receive more info. If you type in TLNM to the main site search and use the Green search button, you can see just how many images we get from lego.com for the Ninjago minifigs from Destiny's Bounty in these early days. It's the same for all the other TLNM sets. We can add the sets, but until someone lets us know what parts are missing in a change request, the totals will not match the box count.
  25. I did run a query for set 9119-1 and came up with about half the parts. I'm going to try to get that completed because I used to live in a house with the street number 9119. And because I found some of the parts from the set in my own small collection of Duplo parts I've bought at BrickLink. Little things like that keep the job interesting.
