Hello,

I am cross-posting this because I don't really know the best place to get
an answer or solution to this. It seems that lately in BrickStock a lot of less
common items don't manage to retrieve an average price from BlinkLink.
Also, I know this has been posted before, does anyone know why the average prices
tend to be lower than listed on BrickLink?

Thanks!
Margaret

Can you show an example?

And this is actually a piece sold 998 times in the last six months:
https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=2454#T=P&C=85

On both of these, BrickStock comes back with no price or picture...

Thanks,

Margaret

I have found that if you update your database it will correct errors in BrickStock.
I see you found a solution with offline mode. However frequently updating the
database is healthy for BrickStock.
