[Sticky] Parts for urgent review


[Sticky] Parts for urgent review
#1
I've made this a sticky thread. Please add parts whose absence makes a major gap in the library. Try to stick to older parts (more than 1 year on the PT) but if a new part is important and appears to be overlooked (eg. new basics like tiles, plates and bricks) add it too.

And for those who wish to help review but don't know how, try this tutorial.

For example:

The 4.5V and 12V have been on the PT for a long time.

thanks a lot

having authored the 12V parts, I'm happy and thankful to see this post.

however, there has been a big confusion previously about how to code the metal portions of them.

this thread has cleared up the issue for me
http://forums.ldraw.org/showthread.php?tid=214,214
, but I still need a final okay from Chris to modify the files accordingly.

the metal color problem will also affect these parts:

Perhaps it would be best to just get them certified and modify the colour in Admin Edit?

I'd prefer...

... to batch-correct all of them, but I'm still waiting for the final go.

The 12V train points are still far from perfect, but I'd want to let them go with a (Needs Work) in the title
to have at least a first iteration out

Maybe drop Chris an email. The sooner you can get the happy versions up, the sooner people can get cracking on reviewing.

To be fair, Steffen has already emailed me about the metal colour usage question. It's just that the discussion thread got so fragmented it was hard for me to figure out what I was being asked to approve. I believe I have that clarity now, and hope to get to it this week.

Hello Chris,
seeing your post here, I fear that some mail between us must have been lost :-(
I'm going to re-send you my mail from 2011-11-04

Good idea. Additionally, take a look at the File Queue, which I believes lists parts on the tracker in oldest-first order.

(Note you need an LDraw.org account to view the Queue. Are part tracker privileges still added manually? As I recall from my own experience, that was another obstacle to participating in the part authoring/review process - figuring out who to email to ask for access.)

One thing that comes to mind as I look at the queue of oldest parts is that I don't physically have [m]any of them. Say I was interested in helping to process these parts (I am); is it acceptable to post reviews about the implementation (e.g. does it comply w/various standards) without comparing to the actual part? Perhaps just as comments, leaving the voting to others. You don't need to it physically possess parts to review them.

Yes, Author and Reviewer privileges are still added manually and, yes, you do need an LDraw.org account to be granted these. But, unless I am on vacation, rarely does it take more than 24 hours, bearing in mind that I may not be in the same time-zone as the requestor.

I have followed the leads of previous Library Admins in trying to see some "LDraw credentials" - such as authoring - before granting Review access, but I can see how that might preclude some from contributing as reviewers. It is increasing difficult to find "easy" parts for novices to author and gain experience.

I'd be happy to see some discussion on this point - in the meantime, I'll update the "Review Parts" paragraph on the Parts Tracker home page, to clarify how to request that.

There are currently 60 registered reviewers, but I've not done any analysis to see how many are active.

Not sure whether or not it is appropriate to post this as a reply to this post or elsewhere...

I believe there is an argument to be made for allowing authors to leave notes (cast novotes) on other files in the tracker but not certify or hold.

Hey,

I would really appreciate such a function. Sometimes I wish I could leave a comment or a cause for thought...

Isnt that the intent of novote?

Re: Parts for urgent review

I'm guessing he means on parts that have already made it to the library?

Re: Parts for urgent review
#24
I think he means
"Can Authors (i.e. members in the PTSubmit group, but not in the PTReview group) be allowed to post a NoVote on any file on the Parts Tracker?".
Currently they can only comment on parts they have submitted.

I am ameanable to this, and I don't think it would be too hard to implement.

Looks good to me, except I'm not sure if the visor/helmet/head parts align the visor slit relative to the eyes correctly. Unfortunately, I can't find any of the visors to examine in real life. Here's how it looks - can you confirm if this is how things actually line up?

I've responded on the PT but I'll follow it here (NB. all I did was move the origin, the hard work had nought to do with me).

The part is almost certainly wrong in looks. But with the origin right, the name right and (needs work) I think it's certainly better to release it, flawed as it is, than to hold it up forever. If someone has the inclination to fix it one day it can be resubmitted but I don't see that happening soon.

Here is my request for parts review. There are some train parts that are not yet part of the official library and I hope these parts can be included in the next parts release.

Train Window 2 x 6 x 2
Shouldn't this part be called 'Train Windsreen 2 x 6 x 2'?

http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cg...567c01.dat

Train Front 2 x 6

Train Door 1 x 4 x 5 Left with TransClear Glass

Hello all reviewers,

I've spent some time to rework almost all of the remaining parts on the Part Tracker, that got recycled in the big upload from Roland Melkert's LDCad 1.4 libfix tool. I now need your help to review my work. Many of the files are ready for an Admin review, but there are still some in need of a first, or second, review.

How to find them?
Use this link, or make a search in the Part Tracker for "libfix". Click on 'details' and give them a review.

Only two more files still need more work, the RCX module and a Technic motor.
Max, do you have time to work on these?

If we join forces, we could have them all back in the next release of parts.

Magnus

Going through the PT I came across this one:

http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cg...s/236a.dat
http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?s=4486

Both are hold voted. We need a decision what to do.

They are really the same, rotated around z axis.

So I would make 236a a moved to rotated 4468.
No evidence this door exists with smoke glass.
73312 is a combo with trans clear glass, https://brickset.com/parts/design-73312 with frame in (at least) red or black.
73313 might have been a reuse, currently https://brickset.com/parts/design-73313

Agree. This means that we rename 73312 and 74313 to "TransClear Glass" and delete 4486c01.dat, 4486c02.dat

Considering the uncertainity of 73313 (see latest comment from Joshua on the forum) I'd rather keep 4486c01/4486c02 and make 73312 (and maybe 73313???) an alias.

Okay then;  a hands down approach would be keeping 4486c01.dat, 4486c02.dat as TransClear Glass and alias  73312 and 73313. Thoughts?
