Naming convention: Trophy


Naming convention: Trophy
#1
Guys,

I'm gonna submit:

https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/cat...ge?P=10172

And I'd like to get some input on the naming. BL currently lists:

https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/cat...ge?P=10172
https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/cat...ge?P=89801
https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/cat...ge?P=72092

where 89801 is already an official and 72092 is on the PT. I like Santeri's "Minifig Trophy Cup  5L" naming scheme a lot and would like to know your opinion about. Obviously this would require a renaming of 89801. (The only problem I could see is that I have forgotten how we measure the "L" and more embarrassing - there is no documentation on our site).

I think it stands for L=long.   1L (long) = 1M (modul) = 1 brick = 20 ldu

I'm not sure "length" is the best qualifier here, but otoh, it is better than using brick height.

I didn't come up with the convention, plenty of Technic pieces and Bars use it. I understood that it stands for "long", as in "5 studs long".

IMO the trophy cup descriptions could fare to be changed to use box sizes but it's fine this way too.
