  1. Unfortunately, I entered my dark age a few years before that so I can't really help with that one. One trick is to check for rare colors that would have been produced only before or after the proposed switch date and see if any of that color are on the market. Also, it might be a good idea to start a separate topic for this conversation instead of putting it all in this generic set inventory topic.
  2. We had the same kind of problems when we did the plates with clips and cliplights a few years ago. Also, you can't rely on set pictures, event from the actual boxes. I've had new sets that contained variants different from the ones on the box and instructions. There's usually a transition period of few years when both versions were in use, sometimes in the very same box. I think there is sadly no perfect solution to this.

    Inventory help

    Maybe you set list is set to not be included in build calculations or something like that?
  4. Yeah, Bricklink would be my suggestion also.
  5. That's what I thought also. If there is a way to trigger the mail only on changes that affect the inventory, that would be perfect.
  6. Wow! I nearly missed this. That's insanely powerful and versatile! Thanks!
  7. No, the feature wasn't there back then. I suggested those links just a few weeks ago and Nathan implemented them very quickly :)

    Gold color question

    That's what I think also. I have quite a few of those in pearl gold and there can be considerable variations.
  9. That's simply awesome. This will make inventorying bulk lots so much quicker. I just can't get over how much you're listening to the community for things like this and how quickly you include them. Thank you very much!
  10. Ok, I saw there were many, that'S why I asked here before sending the requests. If I see some in other categories, I'll send requests.
  11. It's largely about mini-figure parts that have prints and come up in searches that should exclude prints, like this:
  12. I've stumbled onto a lot of parts that don't seem to be categorized well with regards to the "Include printed parts" flag. I plan to send in changes requests for these when I have the time. That's a good way to go with this?
  13. I have a suggestion that would make navigation much faster in some cases and I think it's probably not that big a deal to implement. At least I hope. When you click on a part in a set's inventory, you are taken to a part page where you can see how many you have of that part by colour/partlist. But then, if you want to go to one of these specific colour/partlist page to edit the quantity, there is no direct way. You can link to the partlist and from there filter and search for the part but you already had found the part and the partlist so it seems like a link is missing somewhere. Could the numbers in the colour/partlist grid be links to this page? Admittedly, I'm less sure of the implications for the grid in the part summary popup window but I imagine that would probably be relatively straightforward for the full page version. I can see many cases where that would be useful but here's the one I most often face. I'm putting together a used set and some parts are missing. If I don't have the part in my loose parts, I mark it as lost. That goes well. But if I find that I have some loose ones of this part, I will instead reduce my number of loose parts since some are now assigned to this set to replace the missing ones. That's when I find myself doing the running around I described above and could go much faster with these links.

    Split set into parts

    Yeah, I thought about using the export/import function but I was wondering if there was a built-in version of that operation. Thanks for the info.

    Split set into parts

    There is a function to take loose parts and combine them into a set in our inventory. I wondered if there is a way to do the opposite. You would first add a set, indicate if you have the spare parts and enter the lost parts for the set. Then you could split it into parts. That would remove the set from your inventory but add the individual parts excluding the spare parts and/or lost parts as appropriate. I realize this is something I would use most every time I get a lot with almost complete sets. I could build it and note the lost parts as I go and decide at the end whether I want to inventory it as a set or as parts depending on what's missing. I feel like something like this might be there and it could be just me not finding it.
