Recent changes to the website

Our suggestions box is still receiving a lot of good ideas and I've been busy implementing more of them over the last few weeks.

You can keep up-to-date with changes by viewing the completed suggestions list and also the change log.

Here are the highlights:

  • Link to BackOfTheBoxBuilds.com, an excellent website with an archive of scans of the alternative models shown on the boxes in the 1970s and 80s, added to the Links tab of set details pages
  • OpenSearch implemented, useful mainly to FireFox users
  • Listings can now be sorted by value new/used
  • Gallery views now use CSS flexbox for layout, making them much faster and also making it possible to 'lazy load' images, so the maximum page size has been increased to 500. You may find page load times a little sluggish with 500, though, depending on the speed of your device.
  • New options to record whether you own a set new or used, and how many you want, and what priority you want them. These can be enabled by clicking on the gear wheel in the set listing header
  • New collection valuation report that uses this information to provide a more accurate estimate, using BrickLink 6 month averages.
  • CSV view of set listings replaced with a download button in the header
  • The search autocomplete drop-down now indicates if you own or want a set in it
  • Sets that have been random set of the day now have a link to the appropriate article in the notes section of the list view
  • Links to official Brickset reviews added to sets list view

As the site begins to get busier over the next few weeks in the run-up to BFCM and Christmas I'll be scaling back on changes, but do please continue to submit your ideas and, as always, if you encounter any problems, please let me know.
