Whenever I am looking up a stickered part in the catalog to identify, I then
look at past and current sales of this part. So my pet peeve is this: how can
a stickered part possibly be listed as 'new'?? Just by the fact that
you took the sticker off the sheet and attached it to the part makes it, by definition,
USED! It doesn't matter if you never used this part to build the set, it
is still used! Is there any way we can disable the 'new' button when
listing these types of parts?

I'm sure you're not peeved daily, Lisa

We're talking about adopting a dog, as my son has out grown his allergy.
If we do, what do you think about naming our new pet, Peeve?

But seriously, it makes sense what you're proposing

Oh, my gosh. Get a lab! I had German Shepherds for over 30 years, and we finally
let my son, Daniel, have a choice. He wanted a lab, so we found someone with
lab puppies and he chose a yellow one and named him Archer. He has been with
us almost 4 years and he is the happiest dog I know! I take him to the dog park
almost daily (it is very close to the post office!) and I love to watch him play
with other dogs, or just to play with me: he loves tennis ball, frisbee, tug
toys, etc. A really good, friendly family dog! (and doesn't have the double
coat shedding that the German Shepherds have!)

Dogs ARE the best, especially labs

My son, daughter & I like all dogs! But we did grow to LOVE a certain Dachshund
that was in our care while the owners were out of country. Hung with us on all
of our back country hikes in Utah, if you can believe that. So, any dog that
needs a home, but if we stumble upon a Dachshund, well you know...

I'm 100% in agreement with you that a piece with a sticker on it is considered
used. But for example, say I have a sheet of stickers from a set that are unused
and I cut out each individually and sell the brand new piece with its unused
sticker along with it? It's similar to the Special Assemblies where they
are separated from the complete set and require their stickers to be cut from
the original sheet. I feel that the New option should still exist, but only used
for that specific case (as rare as it may be).

I have made this argument regarding boxes listed as new to no avail. I finally
gave up and listed most of my used boxes as new just like most sellers do.

Agreed. A box cannot be new if it has been opened! Now, if you have a sealed
box and you have magically transported the contents out of the box without opening
it, then I would make an exception and it can be listed as 'new'.

Or you if you get them directly from LEGO (or their supplier) before they are
filled.
Unless in that case you call them “pre-new” or “not-even-new-yet”

If someone actually got unused boxes from lego that is the only case where they
are actually new since they were not used for their intended purpose.

How would I list an element like this if you disabled new? Totally agree on
the applied aspect but a generic limitation may not be the way.

Since we are talking about stickers, I see incomplete sticker sheets listed as
"new" as well on occasion.

Since there isn't an "incomplete" option, they should be considered "used"
IMHO.

Is it not used once Lego puts it on the backing? The sticker is then stuck to
the backing that needs to be peeled off to put it on the Lego element. So if
it has not been put on the original backing it is new. Once it is stuck on the
white backing it is used.

Nope, a new, blank sticker sheet already has the backing. The backing is like
a sprue. LEGO doesn’t put the sticker on the backing, they print on the sticker
while it’s on the backing.

So it’s the printing that makes the new, blank sticker sheet not new anymore.
A new sticker should be pristine white (or transparent), unprinted.
