Pal reacted to jaredhinton in Gold color question
To me A looks like pearl gold and B metallic gold.
Could be brass which we don’t list. There’s questions to whether it exists, some claim it appears in a couple of sets. essentially it appears in some sets where they should be chrome gold and people say they’re different from pearl gold. But I’m not sure how verified this all is.
Pal reacted to TobyMac in Please Report Any Missing Or Incorrect Part Images Here
I've disabled rhe element images. The issue is that LEGO doesn't distinguishes between the mold variations. And if I move the element id to the 2850a, future sets will get the wrong version when importing a inventory.

Which still doesn't cover the part I want help with.the planning and execution of the dynamic growth
I don't want my collection fragmented more than necessary so I have columns dedicated to categories, trying to keep the same color within the drawer boundaries as possible.
so for example right now, I have enough black bricks to take up 53 cells ie one drawer is full (32)l + 21 cells in the next. The remaining 11 cells are occupied with other less common colors.
I also got 9 new cells worth of drawer of black bricks to add here: So when I execute that move I end up with 32 + 30 cells occupied by black but I also need to find the best spot for those 11 cells that get evicted in that move and find a good candidate for the remaining 2 cells. Since I don't want more fragmentation than necessary.
this means that each operation will affect minimum two drawers and can ripple affect over much more. and I have very little room for empty cells so that is kept to a minimum.
And every time I get more parts, I will end up getting multiple growth and or shrink operation like this which is causing a pain to keep labels and inventory position up to date.
And I don't know of any software that does this kind of operations on physical storage. (only harddrives)

As long as the detailed notes remain I have no problem adding alternative notes on each higher level for these kind of notes. Because you usually start out with category sorting then part sorting then part + color sorting as the collection grows. It's good to support all sizes of collections.
Pal reacted to Tettzo in Global part notes
I love this idea. It allows to simply click on a set and you know where to search the parts.
And: You don't have to store your parts in categories any more, because you will find the part you are looking for always very fast, no matter how often it changes its position.
Edit: actually I hoped, that this was already implemented and I haven't found it.
Pal got a reaction from Tettzo in Global part notes
If you click on a part in a part list, there is a note section with storage location and general notes.
If you search for a part and click to get the part details (or click on the full part details link above), there is no note section.
It means that notes are specific to the list item (and color). It also means it's very hard to get to the notes - you have to find the specific list item first, which you can not do through searching.
Since I store my parts by type (independent of set / color / list), my feature request (wish) would be to have the same kind of notes section on the full part details page - where it would be independent of set / color / list. Then it would be easy to find - just search for the part and there it is.

I have uploaded on GitHub a piece of software that I have developed to manage my LEGO collection. It heavily relies on the Rebrickable API and I would like to thank Nathan and the whole Rebrickable community for having made it possible. My hope is that some of you will find it useful.
You can find it here: https://github.com/aburgueno/lego-collection
And a thread to discuss about it here:
