      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 .

A VERY strange sight

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

I was out sledding on Saturday and I was on the trail near rural Lake Park when I came up on a man city in a very nice Chevy pickup near a set of railroad tracks. I thought it was strange -- he was smiling and waived at me to say he was fine and sitting on the road about five feet away from him was a propane tank.

I thought that was strange too.

Thought about telling somebody (cops) but forgot by the time I got to Lake Park.

Said on the Forum website that the guy was killed by a train Saturday. He was also the guy that owned a business that burned down in Perham just a week ago.

Strange.

I read that story in the Forum today too. Are you sure it's the same guy??

What's the deal with the propane tank??? If you are planning on parking your truck on the tracks when an east bound coal train is coming, what do you need the propane for??

That guy was a sponser here at FM for a while, with his cactus resort.

100 percent sure. I knew him -- sorta from Perham where the in-laws are from.

Talked to the police -- We missed it by 10 minutes -- not kidding.

They do not know where the propane tank is.

Strange.

I just want to say If anybody thinks of doing something like this please,please talk to somebody. life is

short enough. Family ,Friends and if nothing else a nice sunrise on a frozen lake can cure anything. I'm not sure why or how people get to this point but it is not something loved ones can always recognize. So please, if you ever feel like life is to much, ask for help. YOU WILL GET HELP IF YOU ASK FOR IT ,and there is no shame in asking for it.Everybody gets down every now and then.We are here for a reason and that reason is not known to us until God takes us home. My thought's and prayers are with the family.I'm sorry for your lose and you are not alone..........

I agree with you guys 100 percent.

I also feel very bad for the Train conductors. They are away from their families for many days at a time. Can be very tough, i would think. Then you have somebody that does this...

I talked to a guy that knew the train driver -- said he saw his eyes staring at him the entire time ... that would be tough.
