Enhancements to BrickLists

Posted by ,

Now that STEAM is out of the way, I have time to work on Brickset again so today I've made a couple of tweaks to BrickLists in response to your feedback. The strange bug that prevented you from adding certain sets should be fixed and, while I intend to provide a drag-and-drop means of reordering lists eventually, for now I've changed the list creation code to number items in steps of 10 which will enable you to change them around somewhat more easily (e.g. to slot a set in between the first and second item you'd give it a number between 11 and 19, e.g. 15).

You have probably already noticed the random BrickList on the side menu bar already! It should change roughly daily (or whenever the server recycles the application).

I'm still really pleased with the way they are being used: there are now 107 published lists and another 90-odd unpublished, and most of them are great, so keep them coming!

Update 14th October: You can now mark lists as favourites and see a list of your favourite lists. When people start using this I will add a list showing which lists have been marked as favouries by the most people.

Great! I noticed the "Random BrickLists" before you wrote this:)! BTW, will you put in pages of BrickLists? Will you number the BrickLists? And will you put in a "Was this useful or not?" poll on the BrickLists?

@StealthNinja: Sorry to disappoint you, but you are too late! Yours WASN'T the first random list! The Random BrickLists was implemented before you saw yours!

@GameOn: The first-ever random BrickList was CrzyLCF's "LEGO Castle - Fortresses"! I saw it just seconds after Random BrickLists was implemented!

Huw, do you think we can have a feature that will allow us to create a "My Favourites" set of lists?

Wow, I could be featured on Brickset's home page! That's cool, no matter how small the percentage is!

Huw, do you select the random Bricklist, or is it really random?

I didn't know you could do that. It's *magical* :)
