Design Part 30093 is called 'See Grass'

For example, http://www.brickset.com/parts/?part=4568215

Is creating a new thread the correct way to bring up mistakes in the DB? Or should we send PM?

    If I am correct, the names and details are lifted straight from the Lego website/database, and as such they would have to be corrected either on the Lego site, or piece by piece by the Admins here, which they're not too keen on doing. I had a similar case where a Duplo chicken was marked down as a "Republic Gunship"...I'll try and find the thread and response for you.

    Correct, so if anyone has an issue with the part names they'll have to take it up with LEGO !

    And this is what Huw said:
    "The data comes direct from LEGO and is displayed verbatim. There are loads of spelling mistakes and anomalies in it, but I have no intention of fixing them this end :-)"

    ^^ You are correct, the data is obtained from LEGO customer services, mistakes and all. Correcting and making the names consistent would be a arduous job and if LEGO call it 'see grass' then, surely, that should be good enough for us :-)

    Frankly, I'd like to see the dreaded Chicken Bomber in the next movie...It would be easy; ILM always puts strange things in the SW movies: potatoes in the asteroid fields, tennis shoes in the fleet battles, kitchen sinks used as missiles, etc.

    I looked up the piece on LEGO CS and it is indeed called 'SEE GRASS'. :-D

    Since you are changing the names from ALLCAPS to ProperCasing, why not have a list of known misspellings too? The list can be added over time -- perhaps by users.

    Will email LEGO CS later and see how long it takes for it to change.
