    sheo got a reaction from timenet in Searching parts by Element IDs   
    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.

    sheo got a reaction from BobWiseNZ in Show total number of spare parts in set inventories   
    For main set inventory Rebrickable says "There are X items in this inventory, with Y total quantity", but for spare parts it only says "There are Z items in this inventory". Please show the total number of spare parts since there may be more than one part of each type.

    sheo got a reaction from Lore Zyra in Adding spare parts   
    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.

    sheo reacted to biodreamer in Fix forum sorting   
    Most Votes does not make sense for the forum at all, good as have as a sorting option but that will hide all new suggestion that needs voting. So any new good suggestion will never bubble up that list because they are buried below all old, which most forum dwellers has already read and voted on. The issue will only increase the more suggestion that being made. besides you already have popular threads in the top that fills that whole purpose.

    Recently updated should be the only default sorting in any forum any where. That is if you want people to visit the forum more then once....

    It the same with the "recommended mocs" who in the heck want to see the same four mocs everytime you visit the main page? new mocs and sets you want, some kind of random list of old sets to get them some spot light, I wouldn't mind but a more or less static list is worthless. it just waste space. either I have already checked them out or I am clearly not interested. either way they are old news and should be dismissed.

    sheo got a reaction from dkurok in 3D models of parts   
    Please bring back the rotating 3D models of LDraw parts. They were very useful in v2, and now even Bricklink has them, but not Rebrickable v3.  Please add them back!

    sheo got a reaction from thea in Part photos   
    Small suggestions regarding the new part photos feature:
    1. Allow magnification of photos.
    2. Add additional categories of photos: mold variations, alternative angle (e.g. undersides of parts) etc.
    3. Allow adding photos to assemblies, kits and other unusable parts (which is currently not possible) - this may be helpful when searching parts from other catalogs.
    4. Show who submitted the photo (compare to Bricklink).

    Is it me or can't I find a link back to the main rebrickable.com when you're on the forum?

    How about that? 

    All elements retain their original scale (except for the oversized part picture), although some white space was removed.

    sheo got a reaction from Kalais in Parts lists   
    Category sorting of loose part lists is very useful in v2. To see all parts of a certain category, one just needs to quickly scroll the page and open corresponding category tab. To see parts in a different category, one just needs to open its tab on the same page.
    In the new design, one needs to scroll page and click "Toggle Top/All" (every time!) to even see the titles of all part categories. Then one needs to click the category title and wait for the page to reload. To change the category that has been selected, one needs to remove the filter first, wait for the page to reload, then click "Toggle Top/All" again, select the new category and wait for the page to reload again.
    Moreover, even when the category is selected, not all parts are shown on one page (and there is no option to change the number of shown parts), so more clicks and reloads are needed to find the needed part.
    To conclude, part lists in v2 have a unique layout that allows one to access the entire parts collection on a single page. In v3, a dozen of clicks and several page reloads are required to find a single part in the collection. Doesn't seem like an improvement.

    sheo got a reaction from Umbra-Manis in Newest MOCs   
    I think that 4 MOCs on the front page is not enough considering that Rebrickable usually has more than 4 MOCs approved everyday. Of course, more MOCs can be found by following that tiny "show more" link or by any other method, but the MOCs on the front page receive more attention. Besides, if this section of the front page doesn't show all of the most recent MOCs, then what's its purpose?

    sheo got a reaction from Umbra-Manis in Text sizes   
    There is a large difference in text sizes on the pages of the new site - from extremely huge bold titles to extremely small and hard to read notes. Moreover, texts with significantly different sizes are often placed near each other, which makes them look like Gulliver among the Lilliputians.

    When I tried to import an LDD model into a private MOC, parts 4162 were automatically changed to 4162pr0050.
