  1. In the part popup, if the checkbox "Spare part" is selected, the number of parts in the previous field is reset to 1. I guess this was made with good intentions, but it's actually quite confusing because the next field resets the previous one, which is supposed to be correctly filled already, and it's not easy to notice that something has changed. Remember that there may be more than one spare part of each type in some sets.

    No offense, but what's exactly the problem about that it uses a lot of space when expanded? :huh:

    The whole layout is redundant. The text string under the title duplicates the fields in the form (obviously to compensate its invisibility by default), and the form does not provide many options to require so much additional space. Also, the need to expand and collapse it every time is very annoying. Therefore I think the form and the string may be easily combined like I showed in the sketch. The same applies to other types of lists.

    And by the way, what are the advantages of the current design? :unsure:


  3. When searching parts by Element IDs, it seems more reasonable to redirect user to the page with the corresponding color of the part instead of the general part page. Considering that currently there are no Element IDs on the general part pages (sadly), it may be not obvious why this page is shown and which color we were searching.

    There may be multiple ids for the same part at another site, but only one of them can be used for imports and exports.

    All the numbers are listed on the part details page under the images in the example you gave.  

    LEGO mapping includes design ID 30057 for transparent [PC] parts, 51809 and 15570 for Metallic Silver version, and 44325 for Chrome Silver version.  

    When used in the main rebrickable search, all of these numbers will direct you to the correct page.

    They are still useful for information purposes. There is no reason to hide this information from users.

    And that note was added manually and is not present for all parts of this kind.


  5. Part pages and part popups show only one Design ID for parts which actually have more than one of them.

    Example:

    Only ID 51809 is shown.

    It is not a bug.

    Hmmm... I want to edit an existing comment, and instead a new comment is added while the old comment remains the same. If it's not a bug, then it's a very unusual interpretation of the "Edit" feature.
