Not sure where to bring this up, it seems that when I posted 21 reviews in quick succession from my backlog of typed reviews for the site I must have overloaded it or something because the site is not actually showing all of the reviews I posted to other members. I see them just fine, they're even on the site, but when you go to every review written by me or the recent reviews list a large percentage of them don't appear to have gone live for everyone to see.
If this is a problem with posting too many reviews within a given hour or timeframe then I suppose it's my own fault, but just thought to bring it up.
Also, did LEGO Pirates Brickmaster, LEGO Castle Brickmaster, LEGO Star Wars Brickmaster first release always have no Minifigures listed for them? Or the Nexo Knights Character Encyclopedia from last year? My count has gone from 2013 to 2009 over the weekend and I have no idea where I lost some Minifigures. If this is duplicate data being corrected on the site that'd be great, but since I was offline for the whole weekend I can't really track down where the Minifigures owned discrepancy occurred.
It looks as if BrickLink has renumbered those books so the link between us and them has broken. I'll sort it out when I get a mo'.
But it's in the database:
However, the frame has arguably been incorrectly categorised given it contains a minifgure, so I've moved it somewhere more appropriate. I'll appear in the drop-down tomorrow once the data has been crunched overnight.
While the 20 top ones are mostly amongst the most recent sets I've added to my 'sets owned' (although not in that order at all), there's also #10185 Green Grocer in there, which I added about 5 years ago! And #70618 was my third most-recent set I've added as 'owned', but it's down at something like 34th, and my most recent addition (#5004932) is at 36th.
I don't understand how it's sorting them?
EDIT: I suspect it's by when they were added to the database, rather than when they were added to my 'owned' list, but that doesn't explain why Green Grocer is in the middle of the 2018 sets, unless maybe the listing was updated in some way this year?
There is also a date updated field which should be used but isn't...
Please can you help?
Yep, like @klinton said. In my minifigure count on the main page only the loose figures I bought seperately to sets are shown in my total. None of the figures from sets I own are shown.
Set pages no longer have their minifigs tab.
This was definitely ok on Saturday since I was trying to identify minifig parts. I don't know if it was working yesterday, I wasn't looking up stuff then.
Something wrong with a script that ran last night, maybe?
1 - I added a lot of sets all at once when I really started using BS as my database.
2 - The further back I go, the foggier my memory about when and in what order I purchased them.
The rows have a sequential ID field so 'date added to your collection' uses this to order them. However if you've marked a set as wanted then marked it as owned then the existing row will be used so it's not foolproof.
'Date Added' is the date the set was added to the database.
Thanks Huw for maintaining a 10 million row database for all of us! This site is probably the most valuable resource on the internet for an AFOL, between the set information on the site itself, the ability to use it to manage your own collection, and the forums.
Now here’s an interesting question then. Not that it much matters now that I understand how the system works, but rather than never marking a set as wanted, could you unmark it from wanted to clear/reset the sequential ID field, wait until the database updates (overnight or whenever it does) then add it in again as owned?
Can you send me screenshots or more info?
Had the same issue myself and was informed that it should resolve itself when the data is gathered again at 8pm. (Which it has, should have looked before posting). :)
Not just the sparkle babies. There seems to be an issue with a lot of sets.
Nearly had a heart attack at the Amazon listings this morning with virtually everything at 99% off until I noticed the retail prices. @Huw ?
It works perfectly fine in Chrome, having the identical extensions/plugins installed and running.
Anyone having the same issue?
Or it could just be a transient issue caused by database timeouts or something.
