  1. You know, I think this is a good idea and well reasoned, but I think it might add a layer of complexity that is not needed.

    An example - if I apply my stickers, then do I have the sticker sheet or do I not have the sticker sheet? I don't usually find sticker sheets in the back of the instructions listed as a part if I'm checking a set in the box vs the instructions..

    Never found one that can handle dynamic growth or help with the rearrangement. There is plenty that handle static storage, in that case a simple excel sheet do the trick. I could write one myself but I don't think I will ever get that kind of free time until I retire. which is decades away.

    Huh, you might want to give it a shot at https://softwarerecs.stackexchange.com/ then, seems a database should be able to handle data coming in like that e.g.

    Box 13 Scanned
    Shelf 2 Scanned
    Box 13 is currently at Shelf 2
    Box 13 Removed
    Shelf 2 Empty
    Box 13 Scanned
    Shelf 4 Scanned
    Box 13 is currently Removed
    Shelf 4 Empty
    Box 13 placed in Shelf 4

    With some error handling on the front end that would be a pretty simple back end.

    Right now, LEGO draws that line. For example those classic sets, they contain an ideas booklet that has instructions for let say six different small builds, then we consider those small builds sub-sets. Later on, LEGO might publish some additional PDFs on their instructions website, those too are considered sub-sets.

    So basically, if LEGO made separate instructions for a model, and LEGO has a good image for that model, and one of our members (or admins) has the set and can rebuild the model, we can add it as a sub-set. Usually the contents of a classic set allow you to build several sub-sets at once, sometimes even all.

    If you can't build the different models at once, as in Creator 3-in-1 sets, we use the largest model for the set image, and add the other two as b-models.

    Now, there could exceptions to these guidelines. For example, a Speed Champions set that contains two cars. Lots of people like cars, maybe you'd want to build one and not the other, so having each car as a sub-set (both can be made at the same time) makes sense. Same for Microfighters that contains two ships, or perhaps Brickheadz double packs.

    Right now, we do NOT consider individual minifigs as sub-sets, and we won't approve them, except within Collectible Minifig sets and Advent Calenders (as daily builds).

    Furthermore, I think a sub-set that is not LEGO defined has to have a certain complexity before we can accept it as sub-set. A three part oil barrel or a five part street light could well be seen as a sub-set, and might even be present in several sets, but an inventory of three or five parts makes no sense, and it is not worth the effort.

    Hope that explains our policies.

    Perfect explanation - thank you

    I don't think alt count as missing because if they do more than half of the rebrickable catalog is bound to be missing. it us as user that more or less add those they don't come in automatically.

    Unless an admin has the set it is also hard for us to determine what parts are in these subsets. Sub-set additions are much better submitted through the Submit Set page by Users who have the 'Master' set.

    Ah, fair enough. What would they be then? Subsets? Would that be the same as (for instance) creating the minifig portions of large sets. Or the pelican for Old Fishing Store 21310? Who draws the line?

    These four sets -

    • 1560-1 - Glory Glider

    • 1561-1 - Stunt Chopper

    • 1562-1 - Wave Jumper

    • 1563-1 - Track Blaster

    Do not show up in the Build Search. If I go to the set pages, they show I have 100% of the parts. The sets are included in my build option settings, the sets are not ignored and are not assembled.

    My build search filter options are:

    Oh, you need to set your country by clicking the flag/JP icon at the top or the new Country setting on the Personalisation tab. I think your changing the Location setting on the Account tab which is just for display to other users.

    Oh, that's what I've been doing, but it's not sticking. Uh.. maybe I'll clear my cookies and stuff and try again.
