I agree, especially the ability to sort The Wall. As it was, we needed to wade through a lot of inconsequential items to find ones in which we were interested.10/22/2016 at 4:59 pm #17177
The Wall sort feature has been here since day one of opening.
Do some of you folks take a few minutes to poke around? LOL. Be like Paulie and click on shiny buttons! haha.10/22/2016 at 6:00 pm #17181
