It's time for another round of new Rebrickable features. These will hopefully improve the way you manage your LEGO collection, and help you get the most out of the site. Each new feature is detailed below.
I've been tinkering with getting this working for many months now, and it's finally in a state that I'm happy to release. Instead of editing the parts and sets in your collections one by one, you can now make bulk edits to multiple items at once. Combined with the filtering and grouping features introduced earlier this year, this makes for a powerful improvement in the ability to manage your LEGO collection on Rebrickable.
You will see a new button in the Part/Set toolbar labelled Bulk Edit. Clicking it enables Bulk Edit mode which places checkboxes on all items on the page, and displays the additional Bulk Edit action buttons.
For Parts, you can choose todetails such as part number, color, quantity or apply a delta quantity to increase or decrease all parts by a specific amount. You can also or the part(s) to a different Part List or Custom List. And you can also all selected parts at once.
If you're on the Pro Plan you will also be able to bulk edit any custom notes attached to your parts:
Sets in your Set Lists or Custom Lists can also be bulk edited.
Sets can be edited in the same way as parts, and provide the same copy/move/delete options.
You can also bulk edit the inventories of your MOCs both during the submission process and after it's been approved.
Display Options for Pro users
If you have upgraded to the Pro Plan or Designer Plan you will also see some additional display options on any list of parts or sets. You can now change the size of the parts or sets to suit your preferences, and there are also new settings that let you set the default view (under the Personalisation tab of your Settings page).
Parts, in Large (default), Medium and Small:
Sets, in Large (default), Medium and Small. Note that the Set tiles lose some information as they get smaller unlike the Part tiles:

New Levels System
I have modified the Levels so that instead of being on a 1-10 scale, it now goes much higher. The equivalent of the old level 10 is now about level 31, but it will keep going up indefinitely. It is much easier to get to higher levels now, although it gets progressively harder as you get higher.
The minimum level requirements for certain features have been adjusted accordingly, and provide a nicer incremental climb up through the levels:
|Old Level||New Level|
|Submit Part Photo||2||2|
|Submit Change Request||2||3|
|Send Private Messages||5||7|
Although the required Levels are higher, the actual points needed to reach those levels are lower. No-one will be losing access to features they already had, and quite a number of people will suddenly gain access where they couldn't before.
I have to admit, the new features that levelling up enables aren't terribly exciting :) The main reason they are there is to ensure the admin team are getting high quality submissions from people who are already familiar with Rebrickable and understand how it works.
So to make it a bit more interesting, I've decided to award various prizes for achieving higher milestone Levels:
Receive 3 months of Pro Plan for free. If you are already on the Pro Plan or Designer Plan, there will be no effect (sorry, providing credits/discounts isn't supported by PayPal). Existing users already over this Level miss out sorry.
Go into the draw for the monthly LEGO Raffle normally only available to Pro Plan users. Pro Plan users will have higher chances though, and the longer they have been on the plan the more chances they get.
Free upgrade to the Pro Plan for life. Existing users on Level 25 and above will be upgraded shortly.
