Recent AFOL; figuring out Bricklink.
I'm trying to understand the color lists that are retrieved by searches in Bricklink.
Using Bricklink, I searched for part 3068a (2x2 tile without Groove), and looking at availability, and so forth.
Four categories of color lists are given in Bricklink:
Lots for Sale
On Wanted list
Price Guide info
The colors displayed in these categories puzzle me. For example, how is it possible for a color to be in the "Lots for Sale" list, and not be in the "Known Colors" list? Other possible discrepancies exist in these lists.
What do these lists of colors represent?
Here's a link to the available color lists for part 3068a:
For part 3068a, I scraped the data, looking for differences.
Here's a screenshot of part of the results, highlighting a couple of colors that are in lots for sale and are priced, but are not in the known color list:
