Bricklink questions

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is anybody else having trouble with the Bricklink database? I'm able to access the website just fine, but actually trying to search for anything is just timing out and giving me a database error report.

Edit to add that after several attempts I'm able to access a part page, but it seems really pot-luck whether it decides to load price information or not for a given colour. A few attempts eventually clears it up.

It has been up and down all day, currently completely down.

For what it's worth, it does appear to be back online at the moment. Though if it's been on and off all day, perhaps it's too premature to celebrate its return!

What is the etiquette as far as a lost package?

It would appear that the USPS has lost a package that I sold, the buyer has been extremely polite with me and isn't blaming me or anything, and it's not a high-dollar item (I think the seller paid about $10 total).  It was shipped without tracking, which was stated in my store policy (anything small I ship using First Class envelopes, unless the buyer asks otherwise, which does not provide tracking) and it's been over a month, when this typically takes about a week.  I'll try to contact the USPS first and see if I can file for a missing package, but am I supposed to refund the seller in this case, or is the "risk" of losing the item transferred to the buyer once it's been sold and shipped? 

Ultimately it wouldn't be a huge deal for either of us, as it's only $10, but if this were something that cost, say $40, or even $100+, which I assume would be tracked, what happens, or is it on the seller/buyer to work out an agreement?

The seller should refund if a package they sent goes missing. The design about how much a risk they are willing to take before they force tracking / confirmation (and its costs) onto the buyer is down to the seller. Paypal would side with the buyer if there is no delivery confirmation and they complained there.

Perhaps a frivolous question, but why is BrickLink's default picture for part 35635 in dark purple, when the part ostensibly doesn't come in that color?

Yes, but why is a render in a nonexistent color used to represent the part? Who made that render, anyway?

It does exist, and the render is made by LEGO.

It doesn't exist at BL yet as the set has not been inventoried.

But that part is two years old, so that render colour is not chosen wisely

Bricklink seems to be glitching today. Been getting a 502 Bad Gateway when trying to buy.

Forgive me if I'm missing some obvious button in the UI, but is there a way to go to a BrickLink store and say "show all items on my wanted lists (or on X particular wanted list)"?

A bit late, but when you're at the "Shop" tab, you should see 4 links just beneath; "Featured", "All items", "New items" and "Wanted List" - click the latter :)

Hey all, I’m looking to buy some hairpieces and I was wondering if I could still potentially get a refund if I don’t use paypal? Whats the best method of paying that ensures I can get a refund in the event something does not arrive or arrives broken? I always take precautionary measures and saw the store I was ordering from “prefers” paypal and I just want to know if there’s any method of payment that would void my ability to be refunded? Is there a safer paying method?

Excellent! I knew there must have been a way! I was looking just at the sidebar. Perfect; shopping made easy. Just cruise random stores and snipe all my wanted parts...

Is there a way to omit duplo parts when searching on bricklink? 

Yes, use minus... -duplo

 

You can also do the same for scala, soft, quattro etc if they are a problem.
