Hi,

Can we get a feature that tells us what year a part comes out in a new or previoustly
discontinued color for that part, or a previoustly discontinued color in general
(eg dark turqoise) and also the set that it comes in.

I say this because right now I have to wait for a new set to be on the web, look
closley at photos of it and see if there are any new part recolors, then I will
put it in a table with the part number, the color, the part name, the set it
comes in first, and the quandity.

Luckily Im only doing this with technic / sami-technic parts but as you might
imagine it is quite tedious.

I am aware that there is the NEW keyword bedide a part that has been released
in a new color however this does not tell us what set it comes in right away
because you can have a bricklink part catalog entry but the section "part appears
in" can be blank for a while,

I know that a load of people are interested in part recolors so I think this
feature would make the bricklink catalog a more powerful tool for lego fans!.

Any questions, leave a reply.
Thanks, SNIPE

Hi,
There is one minor problem with login for me:
On double or more wrong login tries, there isn't a clear information about
next login fails, as message stays same.

After additional login error, clearing old error message then adding "Loading
..." text or loading icon for 1-2 seconds or fail counter would be nice to inform
user that login button works and page is loaded again.

As it goes a rule not allowing retaliatory feedback should also be added for
removal of said feedback since as the rules stand retaliatory feedback is allowed:

Feedback you Received:
The following are currently the only valid reasons for which you can request
feedback you received to be removed:
Feedback you received contains vulgar language.
Feedback you received contains personally identifying information including your
name, address, e-mail address or telephone number.
You are the seller and the buyer has not paid. Non-Paying Buyer Alert has been
completed or the buyer has accepted the NPB penalty via NPX.
You are the buyer and the seller has not responded or shipped. Non-Responding
Seller Alert or Non-Shipping Seller Alert has been completed.
Feedback you received was posted by a duplicate account of a user who had their
membership terminated.
Feedback you received was posted by a duplicate account of a user who was on
your Stop List before the order was placed.
If you're requesting feedback to be removed for the last 2 reasons above,
you should contact the Help Desk before you submit the request and let us know
the original username of the duplicate account.
Requests can be submitted until the order is purged from the system - up to 6
months from the order date. Requests are submitted to the BrickLink Administration
for approval. If the feedback is removed, it cannot be reposted. Each request
has a status:

I feel we should get a report post button added since trying to find that page
is very not user friendly.

The way i use my wanted lists, I don't want to flag a part as owned until
i get it IRL. As such i use remarks to keep track of things i have ordered and
don't have yet.

Ideally, a 3rd stat e of items on a wishlist would be added - something like
pending. However as that would be a significant back end change for the developers
of the site, i created my own tampermonkey/greasemonkey script to add links to
the my wishlist search for each given part on the order page.

So underneath the part/minifig/set image is a link to search my wishlists for
the given item in the given color. That way when i make an order i can click
through for each of the items and update just the remarks for the parts across
all wishlists.

a feature like that would be really helpful and should be fairly trivial to add
to the codebase. (particularly using server side code instead of scraping the
info needed for the links from content already on the page.
