Cataloguing Partially Opened Sets

Just wondering why my post about sealed bag set organizing was improperly merged with another thread on an entirely different subject? Can someone please fix it and leave my posts alone? I'm quite versed at forums and know where to post things and how to search before posting, thanks!

    Just found the forum, hi everyone!

    I've been collecting Lego for a long time and have all my sets logged in Word documents with any pieces that I'm missing (copied from Peeron). I'm sure many (if not most!) of you have some form of doing this as well :)

    My question is on sets that have bags inside still unopened. I have many sets that seem to have been purchased for the use of a few parts or possibly sold to people uninterested in them (somehow!). When cataloguing sets of this nature how do you go about it? I refuse to open sealed bags to count parts and feeling through them is often quite difficult. I have found however that each part type is limited to one bag (unless it's a set which had individual boxes inside, then rules apply inside each box). This has helped a bit as if you can find just one piece inside the bag you don't have to count all of them :)

    So, wondering how you all handle this aspect of collecting?

    Hi and welcome to the Forum. Though I disagree with your assessment of the merge, I am more than happy to reverse course. Thanks!

    One polybag aside, I don't own any partial sets, so I don't have that problem. But I do recall that sets with lots of small parts, like Daigon Alley and MMV, have the same parts divided over two or more bags.

    Thanks yellowcastle for the unmerge. Since I'm referring to the holed bags that the parts come in originally inside the box I didn't feel as if this had anything to do with collection storage!
