Brickset only tracks what is sold on [email protected] E.g. 'tat' produced by a licensee is not listed on Brickset. LCP sets are similar; to quote Huw fin the LCP thread:
They aren't listed because they are not official sets. LCPs have produced hundreds over the years for various clients so there's no way to collate a definitive list, in any case.
Maybe it is possible to introduce something like a new flag, in which the data is user defineable, shown only in our local collections and which does only export to CSV and table?
While it could be done with user submitted data this method often leads to disputes over what should and shouldn't be included and would still require maintaining.
I don't really see much benefit to adding it either, it would be of interest to a small subset of users, unlikely to add any traffic or revenue to the site and further opens to gates to the occassional new member who joins and asks where all the megabloks sets are in the database.
I give you an example: I meant a blank database field which I can name (for example BrickMania 1001) and maybe a few more data fields (maybe even analog the existing ones) for entering data like piece count, publishing year,...). This entry will only be seen by me when I click on 'Sets you own' and by nobody else.
Or just use a spreadsheet...
But I can imagine that is not great for brickset. I could probably add at least 10000 "MOCs" that way, as individual colour/part MOCs, to catalogue my loose bricks.
If all you are really adding is a MOC name and number of bricks, then I agree with the above, it might as well be kept in your own spreadsheet, if you cannot do any further analysis on the MOCs you have.
You want it so badly? You do it. Simple as that.
Feature would've been nice, but there seems to be no need. So again: case closed.
but to be fair, I don't think they did either.
The term "I rest my case" is a metaphor often said in reply to an argument that is intended to counter the speaker's argument but instead strengthens it. @Lazertron's use seems to suggest to me that they either aren't aware of this connotation or they used the phrase accidentally, instead thinking of it as "I see what you mean and I agree with you, and I will therefore cease discussion of this topic." In addition, @Paperballpark's reply seems to indicate that they are in fact used to the general interpretation, and, when presented with two contradicting sentences, chose the latter as indicative of the writer's intent, because, as we all know, contradiction in this thread is pretty common. I hate to see fights like this break out because of something as simple as miscommunication, especially when the subject is semantics. Forums are often far too susceptible to such arguments as it's easy to misread or mistype and you can't exactly take back what you say in the same way you can take back a verbal statement.
TL;DR: please be nice
