      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 .

Too bad they already got my money for this season so I could get through the end of last winter. It is about time however, we pay enough fees to them.

The fees you pay them go back to support the infrastructure to your hobbies....Public accesses, public land, Conservation officers, etc.

Every one should still buy a license regardless. IMO

MuleSchack: I agree with the money going to the infrasturctue. I've bought licenses for over 30 years. I found it hard to believe that the state legislatures would give away the money now being spent. We'll end up picking up the slack someplace. The cost of doing business does not go down. I would have absolutley no problem continuing to pay the fee. If that $13 is between me fishing or not, I'm in tough financial shape and should probably sell everything. It will be interesting to see the end result of the new law. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Exactely, it's not "them" it's "us" that use the money. "They" work for us - collecting and distributeing the money.

As far as still wanting to buy the license or give them money, the DNR takes donations. Ex habitat license plates.

Why?? According to the DNR the increase in out of state fees will make up the lost sales. Also the DNR has not exactly gotten any cheaper on the ATV license every time they close a trail. There is always a increase somewhere to offset the reduction. There is a box on your tax form to check if you would like to give more. smirk.gif

I WISH that were true.

However, waaayyyy too much of the funds generated by hunting and fishing fees have been siphoned off for other "general fund" uses.
