      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

How do you ask?

How do you ask someone you meet on the lake if they're an FM'er. I'd sound pretty stupid saying "Are you a FM'er" out of the blue.

Anyone on here fish out of a older red smoker craft with a merc on it?

Also, if anyone sees me out on the area lakes driving a 17' blue, full windshield starcraft, stop and say hi.

Just dont come out and ask. Build some repor with them first, before you bring that up. You will know right away if they are or not, by the reaction that you get from them. I always ask people how fishing is first, before i ask them.

Thats easy....throw your shoulders back, arms dangling, torso bent backwards at the waist, head and neck jutting out and walk right up to em with the best Kansas City stroll you can muster and say, "Yoe dude! What it be like fishin dude? I mean like, what it is? You get any fish mah man?"

The ice has been broken, then you say, "Hey fishin dude, chief, amigo man, you an FM'er? Whats your handle dude?"

I remember the first time I tried this tactic, I asked this big fella if he was an FM'er and in the commotion of getting off the lake, he thought I had it the other way around and chased me for about a quarter of a mile before he was gassed!

I'm glad he quit when he did, or I might have had to rough him up a bit! I waited until dark to sneak back and get my boat! You know, just so I wouldn't have to hurt the poor fella.

It's a good ice breaker, sometimes a nose, or a jaw breaker to, I must confess, I have been slugged on a couple of occassions....the guys musta belonged to a different organization or somethin, huh? grin.gif

Look at the top of this and all FM pages. Behind the HSO logo you will see where to click and go to merchandise pages.

It's that big of a deal?

I don't ask "Are you a member of Fishing Minnesota"...

I ask "Have you ever heard of Fishing Minnesota.Com?"

And they say..."What?"

I reply, "You know, the website...?"

They go, "Huh?"

Then he looks at the other guy in the boat, they both nod their heads, and one says "we're from Maple Grove."

Everytime.

I've made conversation with a handful of people at launches mostly. Then asked if they've ever been to the website. If not I suggest they do because it's a valuable asset. If they have I introduce myself as Fever and suggest that they take a look. I really is not a big deal as long as you have some average conversational skills and have something worth while to talk about. It also helps to have a picture of yourself up on you avitar pic. Also helps to post pics of yourself every once in a while with a decent catch to just show your not completely full of it. grin.gif Thanks FM for all the info and the fun. 1st day back at school again and I'm sitting in 7th hour prep.... Man does it look nice outside. mad.gif

I feel you. I'm not a teacher, but sitting in shool staring out the window really makes you want to go fishing when it's a nice day out.
