Post: Re: Retiring Sticker Generator form AIOI

    Thread: Aligning Categories to user expectations
Post: Re: Aligning Categories to user expectations

I couldn't agree more with this. We need to align our categories with one of the two major supliers (Bricklink or LEGO). LEGO's categories are even more worthless than ours (though they are improvin...
