New minifig related features
I've added a couple of new features to the site relating to minifigs. When you're logged in, go to the 'My sets' tab and you'll see a new box for 'Minifigs I Own'.
The first time you look it won't show much except for a link to 'Update my minifig collection'. When you click on that it analyses the sets you own and generates a list of the minfigs you own.
When it's done, after 20 seconds or so, the box will tell you now many minfigs you own and will show a link to 'View my minfig collection'. Click on that and, well, go and see for yourself what it does :-)
You'll also notice that minifigs are shown with a green background if you own them when you're viewing sets or the minifig browser.
Because of the amount of data involved and the time needed for the query to run, your minifig collection is not automatically created for you, and not automatically updated when you add sets to your collection. So, you'll need to periodically click on the 'Update my minifig collection' link.
Another thing I've done is produced a print stylesheet which makes pages print better, without the sidebar, header and footer. If you're using IE7 enable the 'Print background colours and images' in the Tools | Internet options menu, Advanced tab and you'll then see the green backgrounds on your printouts.
I still plan to add more minifig-related features including the ability to record ones you own that are not in sets, loose ones you've bought from BrickLink, for example.
I hope you like this new feature. It's certainly helping me keep track of my collection and I hope it helps you too. As always I look forward to your feedback.
