  1. I uncheck it if there are spare parts and I don't have them but one wouldn't likely think of unchecking it when there are no spare on the off chance someone would add some later. It would probably prevent the problem (logically, it should) but I think most people wouldn't do that. To be honest, this specific problem hasn't happened to me but I recently added spare parts to Dimensions sets that were already out of print and it dawned on me that I was likely affecting the inventory of other users who had these sets for 2 years. Obviously, they're not gonna check if the inventory for these sets have changed.
  2. Cool. I just wanted to express the idea.
  3. It would be nice to have the option to get some form of message when the inventory of a set on one of our lists is modified. We could then check to see if we need to adjust our inventory. Here are a few examples of cases this would be useful for: I get a used set and add it to my list. I don't have spare parts but the set doesn't have spares in its inventory anyway so everything is ok. If somebody later adds spare parts, they will be added to my collection and my inventory is suddenly inaccurate. The old building sets don't have instructions so the best way to know if you have the whole set is to check the inventory on the site. Once I have all the parts listed, I consider that I have the set and add it to a list while removing the individual parts from my parts list. But if someone later corrects the inventory of the set, I might not have the whole set anymore or at least, I need to remove the new parts from a part list to reflect what I really have. There should be an option to not get these messages for people who don't care about this. Ideally, the changes would be listed in the message but I don't know how fesable this is. Just getting a heads-up would already be nice.
  4. I had both and didn't notice the difference until I built something that had one of these on each side (my Flapothopter MOC if you're curious) and used two different parts. I realized the difference when it came out all crooked.
  5. Ok, I plan on taking a few pictures this week. I'll try to do this one at the same time.
  6. I don't have 9244a unfortunately. Do you still want a picture?
  7. If you need a picture to have them side by side, I can probably take one for you. Just say the word.
  8. Ok, it really looked like drilldowns so I was wondering if I wasn't asking for something that already existed.
  9. This seems to be a bug. I add some part to a custom list I go into the custom list's screen I see the right number for the part I click on the part and increase the quantity and save Back in the custom list page, the number has bee adjusted Even if I reload, the number is still good But, if I click on that par to add some more, the number I see is the original number, not the current number on the list. This can lead to errors if I don't notice the discrepancy between the list and the detail screen. I will add from the former quantity instead of adding from the current one.
  10. Wait, there seems to be drilldowns for set lists and parts lists in All my parts. Do these work? I only have ones list of each currently so I'm not the best person to test this.
  11. But it's a feature that does make a lot of sense. I never thought about it because for now, all my sets are in the same list but once I start splitting them up, this might be useful. This could make the set list feature much more useful depending on what a list represents. For instance, I used to have a second list for my damaged parts that I still wanted an inventory of but since there was no way to exclude them from All my parts, I ended up moving them to a custom list which is a bit of a clunky way to keep inventory. As far as interface is concerned, a drilldown in All my parts for set lists and parts lists would be lean and clear. I have no idea what that involves behind the scene though.
  12. For my part, I mostly build stuff I create myself. So my main sources of parts are sets that have parts I want and Bricklink lots from sellers who have parts I want. Most of the time, I don't yet know what I'm gonna do exactly with the parts, just that they might be useful for my style of construction. I do sometimes buy sets because I want the se itself but it will inevitably get added to the part reserve eventually. As for keeping models built, it depends greatly. Some sets I kept built for many months before breaking them up for parts (like the fishing store). Others will be built once, just to see it and confirm I have all the parts and will be taken apart pretty much the day after. It'S similar for my MOCs. Some I build for fun, take a picture to remember and break them apart shortly after. I tend to keep them much longer if I intend to bring them to shows. Some of my steampunk MOCs have been built for a few years. For some of those I didn't want to loose, I made photo instructions as I dismantled them and entered them as MOCs on Rebrickable. That way, I can rebuild them later if I want. Right now, I'm in the process of taking everything apart because I want to build something with all my parts available. My collection grew a lot since building some of these so I never actually had all these parts available at the same time.
  13. According to my Rebrickable inventory, 72170 parts.
