Here is something I have wanted to put together for some time. Working on Brick Classifieds, I realized I had already made a few bits of code that will work well for finding out the value of some of these listings we find on eBay and Craigslist. Is this eBay listing really worth $1799? Go ahead, try out the new tool and find out. I think you will find that it is overpriced!! Use the tool to make people offers on their lots. Send them to the site so they can find out for themselves. It's Very Simple to Use!!! I worked it out so that for many of the listings, you can just paste in their list of set numbers and set titles. When you hit the "Process Sets" button, you will see that it will strip out the text and process the set numbers it finds. It will allow you to remove or change listings if some are not correct. It will also identify left over numbers that it can't match to a set. In most cases this could be the numbers that are for quanity or soemthing else. Just ignore and hit the "Get Set Values" button at the bottom. Here is where you will get all the sets in that lot with their current values and lot total. You can change the condition from "New" to "Used" and also update the quantity of each set. It will automatically change the totals on the fly. You need to be a member to use this feature, so please log in and go to the tool. Like I mentioned earlier, this could be a tool for negotiating better deals bundles/lots. It's also a good tool to just find out the value on a few sets quickly. Right now it defaults to the US values, but there is a option to change to the other 3 regions to see what the sets are valued at in the UK, EU and AUS Let me know what you think, any enhancements that may make it better or any bugs you run into. Hopefully you find it usefully. I know I have used it to talk to a few sellers already. A link to this tool can be found in the Tools and Data menu on the main site. Here is a quick video so that you can see how it works!
From the suggestion made by Willy431 yesterday, we are going to trial a new forum type. It is a "Best Answer" feature. We would like this forum to be used to help one another identify unknown parts, bulk pieces for sale, and unknown questions to be answered. Please be as detailed in your questions when you post your finds. Obviously images will be quite important to post so that people can help you out quickly. Please refer to the few examples that are currently in the forum to see what we are talking about: http://community.brickpicker.com/forum/57-name-that-brick/ Rules of the forum: Legitimate questions only. No questions like "What is your favorite LEGO?", or "What number is the USC Falcon". Questions like that will result in -500 Brickpoints Details, links, images required Admins, mods and the original thread starter can approve the correct answer Correct answers are valued at 50 Brickpoints You will be sent a notification if your answer is selected and receive the Brickpoints If the wrong answer is picked and a better one is provided, you can reverse the answer and pick a new one. The Brickpoints will be subtract and the member will be notified The correct answer post is marked at the top of the thread and highlighted in green Hopefully this will prove to be an informative and helpful one. Thank you!
Reading some of the latest comments I added in a feature that will show you similar topics when you are posting. This is just a trial run. Some may find it annoying, some may find it helpful. It can cut down on duplicate posts and help keep other topics going strong. Lets try it out and see how it works. Here is a video to show how it works. After you type your topic title and move to the next form field, you should see the topic options come in. If you see a topic that matches yours, don't create a new one, keep the other one alive. I disabled this feature in the Introduce Yourself forum, since I know there will already be many similar types. That is fine. http://www.screencast.com/t/dbee6OgL
