    And even more important for bad ones!

    Major problems when viewing sets or products on the homepage. It really hard to explain so I think I'll just upload a video.

    How about the ability to send a brickset link of a specific set to someone, directly from the item's page?
    I'm thinking of a button that says: "Check this out!" so I can let my wife, my parents, or friends know of a cool set (in the hopes they buy it for me).

    ^ you can do that from [email protected] if it is something not EOL if you follow the sale link from the Brickset entry for it. It's a couple more clicks but its already possible.

    My feature request/idea would be to incorporate pricing information from forum threads into a section on the main site.

    This would probably require a) a bit of discussion about the best and most useful way to do things and b) a bit of work from forum posters when they post a relevant thread.

    I'm thinking that when you're browsing a set that it would be very useful to see current and historical pricing information ie. "Was on special offer at tesco for £4.75", "freely available at Argos for £18" (effectively using the data in the shopping threads in the forum to extend the amazon functionality to other vendors). User addable fields for price, vendor and a forum URL might be a simple start.

    I suppose this is a sort of cross reference into the forum posts which are organised by vendor to be useful for actual quick buying.

    I'm definitely not sure of the best way to do it, or whether it's even possible, but I wonder, first, if anyone else even thinks that it would be useful?

    ^ I wouldn't want it available straight away to browsers of the main site. Some of those deals go quickly when posted in the forums. They'd go ever quicker if repeated elsewhere too.

    Also "was available" often clouds judgement. You have to assess whether something is a good deal now, not when there was a pricing error or excellent deal that will never be repeated.

    I appreciate that, and I think the forum is always going to be the best place for "this set is cheap at XXX, get one if you can" and maybe my idea is too much. It just seems like a real shame that there's loads of information about pricing in the forums, but these obvious Buying tabs in the main site.

    Any info would have to be manually posted by users, so maybe people should just delay.

    You could make the same argument on "was available" on the amazon price histories. I'd say it's all part of the rich information you might want to look at when buying. And that was why I thought that all info should have a link to the relevant forum post so that you can see the context.

    Maybe it would be possible to encourage a certain pricing posting format in the forums, which allows for a useful searches starting from sets later, as a starting point, only adding those searches to the main site at a later stage.

    ^^^ I'd like to drive my fiends, coworkers, etc to this site. Not the [email protected] site. Brickset is the first place I go when showing a set I have/want.
