Former LEGO ambassador and LEGO zealot as a whole. If I could give negative rep for people writing "Legos", I would. It's going to be very hard not to suspend any offender though.

comment How can I identify kits from a box of parts?
Actually, no, I don't want to do that as it's not really the point of this question and it has been covered in another question. However, you're quite right that I should have at least pointed to that corresponding question on how to determine the name of a brick. I've added that.

comment What are some storage options?
@muntoo this lugnet article may be what you are looking for. I just read it again, it's really worth it.

What, a closet with no temperature-control whatsoever?

comment What are proven methods to sort/categorize a large number of parts?
I wish I knew :-) The only designer workshop I've visited is the one in LEGOland Windsor. There they have huge drawers in their main office with one of each part in the drawer glue on a small baseplate on the front. I didn't see one open, but I suspect they are sorted by element AND color. In their stockroom, about every part is sorted similarly by element AND color; with huge boxes for common parts like bricks or plates while for smaller ones they have a gridlike arrangement of small open hobby boxes. Horizontal is shape, vertical is color (or the opposite, I don't remember for sure).

comment How to minimise or remove sun-stains/fading from blocks?
I was about to answer that's it's usually hopeless, so it's good to see there's a solution, even if it's partial.

comment Under what conditions are the Lego boardgame dice unfair, and by how much?
Actually, BrickLink will give you the weights for tiles too. A 2x2 is 0.48g and a 1x1 is 0.16g so the difference between one 2x2 and 4 1x1 is 0.16g. Which is not the highest unfairness you could have; as I said you can have empty sides, so the highest unfairness is empty side against 4 1x1 tiles, or a difference of 0.64g, or 8% of the total weight, which is bound to make a difference. Although usually when an empty side comes up you may add stuff on it so the situation is unlikely to happen.
