We have the capability for topics but sometimes I just want a single post within a topic.
For example, someone earlier posted about a AFOL Brickset Google map for where people are from, but now I can't find the thread it was in as it was under some other topic.
I'd also like to see boxed weight listed somewhere on each set as that would help with determining shipping costs on trades and sales without having to pull the box out of storage ahead of agreeing a deal.
It just occurred to me that a good categorisation of topics might include a section for "new releases" and one for "Set discontinuations".
just another one for the bucket if you do a card sort :)
The reason for the change is to be able to add more image galleries. Thomas Main has kindly sent me Gbs of scans of boxes and I intend to scan the cover and other relevant pages from all my thousands of instructions. I'll be creating a new tab to hold these, and also possibly, another one for user contributed images.
I've just noticed that the pop-up image window thingy doesn't respond to the arrow keys to move between the images as it should, probably beacuse the tab content is Ajax-ed in. Not sure if I can fix but I'll have a look.
The new details pages are excellent :)
You can basically attach a click handler to a selector, and it will automatically add it to new elements that match that selector, even if loaded in via ajax.
I'm fairly sure the tabs don't go onto a second row in Chrome for me but I will check later.
@ljames28, the Highslide library I use isn't jQuery based and handles all that side of it, I haven't had to delve into it much, but I may have to :-(
I'll ressurect when I get a mo'...
I love the RSS feed of new products, but I wish there was a way of filtering though it. It's great seeing how many people want a product, good to know I'm not alone and I'm happy about adding it to my want list, but if there was a way of seeing 'recent updates' to my want list (generated individually) or 'recent changes' to Themes (generated abroad, across the site) I'd have a much better chance at knowing when things are finally available--and this primarily pertains to polybags; it's so hard to keep track of those things.
It's a matter of logging changes to entries, and making that transparent on a members side, always easier said than done--but that's what I'd like to see.
And perhaps it's already here and I just haven't found it... Yes?
Thanks(!) for having this forum topic, I think it's great to crowd-source for improvements. Keep up the good work!
Of course, it is easy to forget to add it (I'm guilty here), and would be useful if you could edit the title once posted.
I sometimes use brickset with my kids and they've caught on to looking at that field.
It opens me up to some intense questioning. :)
I'd hate to have to open a second, secret, account and try to keep them in sync.
It has gotten easier as they've become used to the idea that these sets are in the house, but they have to wait for a birthday or other gift occasion. And some--very few--are mine.
Even if there was a "hidden" brickset option, when we go to a store I've had to come clean and say, "we have that one" fairly often. As a result I've started to open my own in-house store to them (with prices usually 30% off retail!).
Still, I recently unmarked the DS--that one will remain secret until Santa brings it some Christmas. Which reminds me, if they've seen a set as "I own" and then they get it from Santa, then I've got some explaining to do.
