part name issues

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

the part names of 18940 and 18942 starts not with the prefix "Technic", all other Technic parts start with that prefix:

https://rebrickable.com/parts/18940/ ("Gear Rack...")

https://rebrickable.com/parts/18942/ ("Gear Rack...")

https://rebrickable.com/parts/3743/ ("Technic Gear Rack...")

 

Some of the #-marked numbers have a space between # and number, some parts not:

https://rebrickable.com/parts/64681/ (without)

https://rebrickable.com/parts/64393/ (with)

 

This issues generates strange results while sorting by part name....

I favour #[No Space] so I have changed it to that. @TobyMac is that ok?

Technic has been added to the others.

Thanks. It seems there are no fixed rules for naming on Rebrickable. There are some things that are not consistent. Examples:

https://rebrickable.com/parts/92908/ "Technic, Steering Portal Axle Housing"

https://rebrickable.com/parts/92909/ "Technic Steering Hub for Portal Axle"

In the first name there is a comma after Technic, and if you rename the second to "Technic Steering Portal Axle Hub" then these two associated parts are listed togehter if you sort by name.

 

Other example: Sometimes pins with the length of 3 studs are marked with "3L", other pins are marked with "Long":

https://rebrickable.com/parts/11214/ "Technic Axle Pin 3L with Friction ..."

https://rebrickable.com/parts/6558/ "Technic Pin Long with Friction ..."

 

I know, these things are peanuts and the database has grown over the years and and different people are making entries - but that makes finding things and the output of sorted lists a little more logical...

This is a long process that we are working on (see minifig categories for example, recently we split them and are renaming everything to be consistent. Minifig accessories are complete so you can see the progress there).

We’ll get there eventually.
