  Using the above helpID = 41 it states both buyer and seller can set as completed.
This is still true if the buyer has not changed the status to RECEIVED. Once
that has happened a month later I still cannot set the status to COMPLETED.
If a buyer has not complained about anything in the intervening month it must
be OK and I should have the right to change the status. Why do I no longer have
this option?

I am wondering the same thing. I have a buyer that has set the status to received,
but despite my reminder, not having it set to completed a month later..

This looks like another bug and I will look into it. Also, we are still monitoring
the situation with order status settings and may make some further changes.

  I have been following this guide as to how to set the ORDER STATUS

https://www.bricklink.com/help.asp?helpID=41

Why is it that now, when I place an order in PACKED status, I can no longer change
it to shipped? Especially when that's exactly how Bricklink advises it?

Is this a bug? If so, when can I expect a fix? Also, now that I have changed
the status to "PACKED" how can I now change it to shipped?

Thanks.

Ken

Hi Ken,

Based on user feedback since the original release, we are now in the process
of adjusting the order status behavior. We will keep you informed.

Thank you Admin_Russell

The Reminder reopens every time I log in or open a new tab in Firefox on Windows
10. When will this bug be addressed? It's a constant reminder that something
as simple as 'Don't display this message again X' doesn't work
on this site.

Other than the initial two posts, we haven't really said too much about the
20 Days of BrickLink event in the Forum. Just as a way of reminder, the event
is taking place over here:

https://www.bricklink.com/v3/20years/main.page

This page will be updated every weekday and includes a wide variety of activities.
There was a "Test your BrickLink knowledge" quiz that went live yesterday, for
example.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRICKLINK.
My son and I thank you. Keeping the Story of Dan Jezek alive is
wonderful for all of us, young and old.
Best wishes for the next 20+ years.
Larry and Daniel

Dear BrickLink community,

  



On June 19th of this year, we will mark the 20th anniversary of the creation of BrickLink.

  



Dan Jezek dedicated his life to creating a platform where all LEGO® fans could find the special bricks that they needed. This platform bridged their dream creation to the missing pieces, and the platform is what you know today as BrickLink. BrickLink became the place to meet others who share the same passion for the colorful bricks and the build itself.

  



We grew, we evolved, and we are proud of the accomplishments we have made thus far. But as confident as we are in the future, we recognize that BrickLink will not be what it is today without this community. We formally thank you for your trust and support all these years. We would like to express our gratitude for you and members of the community for choosing BrickLink as your main source for LEGO elements and sets.

  



How are we celebrating?  



We are celebrating by hosting a 20 Days of BrickLink event to highlight milestones and members from the past and present while looking toward the future. We invite you to share your story about any of the following:  






Coming across BrickLink – Kindly share your story about how you came across BrickLink, and how it has changed your interest in LEGO elements and sets.  







Finding friendship – Please tell us about a time you found friendship on BrickLink, highlight the moment you interacted with them, and how you met in real life (if applicable). 







Buyer/seller story – Everyone has a favorite BrickLink seller/buyer story. Can you share with us what your favorite story is? 







Hopes for future BrickLink – What hopes do you have for BrickLink in the near future? 





You will be able to include a photo or video to further illustrate your story, and you can make a submission starting today. If you have more than one story to share with the community, we encourage you to share it!  

 




Prefer to upload a MOC instead? Go to My Studio, proceed to edit your MOC’s details, then add the tag 20 Years of BrickLink so that other members can easily find it.  



 

Where can I find more information? 

 



An announcement with a general daily schedule will be posted on Friday, June 19th. Stay tuned, and stay connected with us on Facebook or Instagram.



 

We look forward to reading your story! 



 

Thank you, 



The BrickLink Team

What a wonderful celebration, Happy 20th Anniversary BrickLink! And thank you
Mom & Dad for keeping Dan's legacy alive through this wonderful resource.
I have found many joys on this site for both me and my son, and look forward
to continuing to support all the sellers on this site. God bless!

  Dear members,


What a momentous day it is for everyone here at BrickLink and in this community because on this very day 20 years ago, BrickLink went live. The site, created by Dan Jezek, became the place to meet others who shared the same passion for the colorful bricks and the build itself.


To help us kick off the 20 Days of BrickLink event, Dan Jezek’s mother and former CEO of BrickLink has written a thoughtful message addressing the community:


This month we mark the 20th Anniversary of the founding of BrickLink. Larry Hawthorne and I want to join all of you in virtually celebrating this wonderful milestone. As it were, we find ourselves in Honolulu, Hawaii, where we have remained since the COVID-19 pandemic expanded in early March. How appropriate it is that we are here in the same location where Dan launched BrickLink (then BrickBay) on June 19, 2000. I have provided a brief video message inviting you to share with me some personal remembrances from the time Dan spent putting BrickLink together, building it from scratch.






I can only stress that if Dan were alive today, I know he would be so proud and grateful to you for making his dream, BrickLink, come true. Without you, none of this would be possible. Please think of Dan on the 20th anniversary of BrickLink on June 19th, and on what would have been his 43rd birthday, June 25th.


Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for an absolutely awesome 20 years of BrickLink!


Eliska and Larry

danjezek.com


So much has happened between then and now that has allowed us to grow and evolve. With this milestone, let us celebrate together and not only look back on how far we have all come, but also look forward to what the future holds.



20 Days of BrickLink event



This event will also focus on BrickLink’s history and future and how the community played a part in its success. It will also be a space where we can share original stories, content, etc. with each other. The first week of the event is dedicated to the first 10 years of BrickLink, the second week dedicated to years 11-15, the third week focuses on events leading up to the present, and the last week focuses on the future. The 20 Days of BrickLink event will begin on Monday, June 22nd, and it will run until Friday, July 17th (excluding weekends).



Every week, we will cover a topic for each weekday:


About – On Mondays, we will share a general post about the week’s theme. There are four themes altogether: how it all started, what made a difference, where things are today, and what’s next.

Spotlight – On Tuesdays, we will be putting the spotlight on members of the community for contributing to or having an impact on BrickLink in some way.

Your Stories – On Wednesdays, members who shared their BrickLink moment story with us will be posted here. If you’d like to submit your own story, please go to the submissions page. If you have a MOC that represents the 20th anniversary, add the tag 20 Days of BrickLink to your MOC details so that other members can easily find it in the Studio Gallery.

From the Team – On Thursdays, members from our team will share a story related to the week’s theme.

BrickLink Challenge – On Fridays, we thought we’d make things a little more interesting with some challenges! Questions will be multiple-choice or open-ended, and depending on the challenge, you will be timed. Some answers may even be in previous posts


Join us on Monday, June 22nd for Day 1 of 20 Days of BrickLink,! We hope that you all will enjoy this special event.


Thank you,

The BrickLink Team

Spero di stare con te ancora per tanto tempo!
Auguri ricordando Daniel

  Dear BrickLink community,

We’re all affected to one degree or another by COVID-19, so we’d like to
share how we are facing the challenges of this pandemic and how we think this
may affect your BrickLink activity.

First, we want to reassure you of our commitment to you as a community. Even
though we are dealing with the challenges of working remotely and the delays
that inevitably arise from the safety measures that have been put in place, we
are striving to stay on target with our goals for this year.

One of our goals is to improve site performance so that you can depend on BrickLink
to be up and running smoothly when you need it the most. During this time of
many uncertainties, we want you to be able to count on BrickLink being stable
and have a frustration-free experience. Please check the Forum for progress updates.

Second, we’d like to report that sales are stable during this period, and we
have no reason to believe they won’t continue to be. The number of stores that
have closed is, apparently, being balanced out by those who are looking for a
few more LEGO® bricks to help spice up their extended stays at home.

As much as we want our marketplace to succeed, we would ask that if you are required
by local laws to stop working, please do so. This is not only the responsible
thing to do, but obeying local laws is an obligation according to our Terms of
Service.

Finally, as a community-driven site, we are concerned about the health and well-being
of all our members. To this end, we have the following recommendations for this
time of crisis:

- Whenever you receive an order from a BrickLink seller, leave it in the package
several days before opening it. This should completely nullify the chances of
you getting sick from a BrickLink order.

- Exhibit a greater degree of patience with other BrickLink members, whether
they be buyers, sellers, community admins, or folks you interact with in the
Forum.

- Take time to build something. The joy of building is what started this whole
community known as BrickLink, and it can perhaps provide a little distraction
from the news stories and empty streets.


Thank you,


The BrickLink Team

Hello everyone, has anyone else add problems with the mail deliveries? My latest
2 order that i have sent haven't arrived yet, so iam worried that i will
have to close my store for awhile. Anyone did or is thinking of doing the same?
