Brickbuildr's site doesn't look appealing. I actually have no idea what they offer other than the PAB wall because their site doesn't parse correctly on my tablet browser. I've never bothered ro search it because it looks like it is not up to date. It looks like it needs an overhaul. I'm suggesting that Brickset has the care and attention to incorpporate this feature, and a userbase that would probably keep it up to date.
It's just a suggestion, but something I would love to see. If you were to ever consider it, throw up a poll on the front page and ask the brickset community if it is something that they would use or like.
On the other hand, people post videos on FB these days, which are easy to do and easy to watch. Personally I think that's the best way to stay up to date with the PAB walls.
Perhaps it could be along the lines of an online PAB wall where a photo of each bin could be uploaded to its space. Then either uploader or another could complete the associated text field with brick id / name at leisure? I’m sure there’d be people happy to snap photos and upload, but not want (or have the time) to find the correct brick or description, and others that could identify and link to bricks in database quickly but don’t regularly get a chance to get to store and take photos?
And big thumbs up to Bluewater - they asked AFOLs one Saturday event late last year or early this for bricks they’d like to see on the PAB wall. My request of pink 2x4s happened! Picked up around 1,500 so far, need another 2,000 or so...
I think that's why the posting videos to LUG groups (Facebook or forums) has become popular, it's more likely to reach the relevant people with less work needed by the poster.
I'm not saying the idea is without merit, after all tbose who live within range of several LEGO shops might be persuaded on which one to visit by PaB wall selection, but it's still more about local markets than anything else.
And... what are you creating? A giant pig?
