      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 .

Just wondering what FM is planning on doing, organizing groups, ie. clean up assistance etc etc for the flooded areas in SE MN?

A LOT of folks on here have walked the banks of many streams affected by the floods......

I'd be willing to help.....

If your interested in helping out, please just drop a simple post here. I'd certainly be willing to help put something together.

One way to help would be to join our local Hiawatha Trout Unlimited Chapter. They do an incredible amount of streamside work and I know that extra dollars and extra workers would come in very handy for them. I got an email from Randy earlier today saying that they were doing some streamside work tonight. Randy, maybe you could chime in and let people know how they can help.

Thanks Nate.

It'd be great if a group of FM'ers could get together to help out in Rushford...they're still working on cleaning up an incredible mess. Organized help, groups and individuals, needs to coordinate with the folks who are leading the effort down there, and the best way to do that is through the United Way of Olmsted County. Their website is http://www.uwolmsted.com. My wife and I are hoping to do this yet this month.

As far as TU goes, we're doing what we can to repair some of the streams that took a hit. Thankfully there wasn't any major damage done to any of the streams with improvement projects done...they did what they were supposed to do and did it well. It's amazing what happens when a stream is re-connected with its flood plain and banks are stabilized. A lot less streambank and farmland is sent down to the Gulf when highly eroded banks are repaired and the riparian is returned to a more natural state, but there's still much work to be done.

There is maintenance to be done yet, and we're trying to do it while the days are still warm and there's sunlight into the evening.

I could be wrong, but I think Rushford might be inundated with "help". In the restaurant I have met many different groups, some from across the country, that have come to help out.

I was down there a week and a half ago. Yes lot's to be done with the town, but even then most homes and businesses had been gutted and garbage piled.

You'd definitely need to contact those groups (Red Cross, United Way etc) already in place utilizing a project plan.

I was referring more to assisting the DNR and/or other groups in stream clean up etc. Simply getting things into workable fashion.

Thoughts?

There are plenty helping down there, but from what I've heard directly from residents, I don't think they're "inundated". That would mean they have all the help they need and more.

As far as stream work goes, I'd say check with Steve Klotz at the DNR to see if they'd like a crew somewhere to help. Places like the SBWW will only benefit from heavy machinery, but there are definitely places that could use some minor handi-work.

Your right, thanks for the correction. Not a great choice in words.

I simply don't want suffering added to. Gaukers, rubber knecking etc. That was my intentions.

When I was down there, at least in the shelters, it appeared as though there were more helpers than need.

What spurred the orginal post was in fact a conversation with Steve.

From his reports, and this is NOT a quote, there is a lot more work needed than just in Whitewater.

So as Randy mentioned, tying in to clear direction from the DNR is sound judgement.
