    criteria for pricing the parts

    That would be great! I collect a lot of vintage and the prices here are unfortunately not really useful for that.

    Early LEGO History (1949 - 1965)

    To be honest, I don't expect to touch that part of the database. I'm not even familiar with the sets in question. I really have no stakes in this. It just seemed an obvious alternative to me so I thought I'd suggest it. I actually do prefer Bk, it's probably the clearest option yet.

    Why don't you use K for black? It's the standard in printing, isn't it? RGB = Red, Green, Blue CMYK = Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black Because if you have B, and Bl, either could seem to mean blue or black.

    non white color parts and printed parts in Hydrogen peroxide

    I used it on the old light gray a lot, including printed parts. It works great. I had an old space landing plate with about 1/4 the surface greatly yellowed. It took a while but it got to a point I couldn't even tell where the demarcation used to be except for the discoloration on the print. By the way, it won't damage the print but it won't restore it either if it's also coloured. I was tole to not put stickers in peroxide though. Also, note that it's not a permanent effect. On the baseplate I mentioned before, I noticed the discolouring was slowly coming back about a year after I treated it. It's still much, much better than it used to be, though. It's supposed to also work well on blue but I haven't tried it much. And just in case you don't know, for peroxide to work you need direct, strong sunlight.

    Inventory change notification

    Cool! Looking forward to see this in action. Just let me know when and where I can activate the feature.

    Inventory change notification

    I hadn't really looked at the change log in detail before and never realized you could expand it to see the details. That seems to be plenty of info. I also thought it would be something like once a day, kinda like the forum. In my experience something manual like a "send mail" button is a chance for human error and might be forgotten. I prefer to sometimes get a mail about an added comma but never miss an inventory adjustment, especially since only those who opt-in will get it. Maybe something in between would be a "send mail" checkbox next to the save button that is checked by default. That way, you have the option of not sending a mail but sending one doesn't require an action. Still you're the ones who do the job so I will trust your judgment on this.

    Inventory change notification

    I think it would be great to have the option to get an email warning us when the inventory of a set we own is modified. Ideally, the mail would tell us exactly what was added and/or removed but I don't know if that's possible. When you buy a set new and just add it to your list, the impact of a change to the inventory is minor. Usually, it will only make your inventory more accurate after the change. Though you could end up with inaccuracies with the spare parts either because you actually got what was in the previous inventory or if you had assumed your copy was just off and adjusted your inventory to compensate. So the warning could be useful there. But where it would really be great is for collectors who reconstitute old sets from parts. If I've marked a set as owned because I have all the parts in the inventory but suddenly that inventory changes, my inventory is now inaccurate and I will never know it. If I got a warning, (especially if the specific changes are indicated) I could then adjust accordingly. Obviously, there should be the option to deactivate this email in your profile for those who don't care about that level of detail.

    Early LEGO History (1949 - 1965)

    I agree with Biodreamer, having copies of different inventories of the same set is kind of messy. So I would make these into different sets. As for warning people who already have the sets in their collection, I agree and will also make a specific suggestion about that. I have been thinking about it for a while anyway.

    Scissor Lift help

    They should make a part like 32002 but with two short ends for things like this.

    NOT Counting Official B-Models as Alternate Builds

    That'S what I meant. I think it's cool that they're in the database. You should just be able to exclude them if you want.
  11. The 5005358 Minifigure Factory set seems to be missing.

    NOT Counting Official B-Models as Alternate Builds

    For my part, I usually only want to see official sets. I wish there was a way to not include the alternate builds from box pictures that were entered into the database when browsing sets.
  13. I downloaded it to have a look. I really don't think it's for me. Just starting from the sets to sort the parts feels completely backwards to me. Maybe it's just because it's not linked to our inventory for now. Perhaps it will fit more later. As for the app itself, I ran into several usability problems. -When I go to enter the bin or drawer, I can't see what I'm typing, the keyboard covers it. -I never found how to save that data. No matter where I click, I loose what I entered. -If you click on a set but not a part and go to Update storage, the app crashes.

    Add a global "consider spare parts" toggle

    Yeah, that option is a bit hidden but so very useful. That would be ideal. What I sometimes do for missing spares is to use the checkbox mentioned by TobyMac and then add the spare parts I do have as loose parts. Sometimes, when I happen to get the missing ones, I remove the spares from my loose parts and uncheck the checkbox.

    Helmet without visor dimples

    Sorry for the double post but there are two discussions about basically the same thing: Some discussions I participated in a while ago (perhaps on this forum) concluded that they were most likely production errors. It makes sense. I first thought they were the original helmet design but the yellow castle uses visors and is from the very first year helmets were used so it can't be. Also, the castle visors are the only ones made for these helmets but modern visors do work with them (though sometimes awkwardly). I do use things like goggles on old helmets.
