      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 .

Did you post your email address in full or did you break it up like a lot of people do here? If you just posted your email address, it is really easy for someone to copy/paste it into spam generators. Best thing to do, if you posted the full email, is to go back and edit it so that it isn't perfect...something like jonsmith at yahoo dot com, or jonsmith at yahoo and you know the rest, or something along those lines, and then click the remove me from your mailing list on the spam emails. Should cut down on the spam.

don't click those unsubscribe links. all it does is validate your email address to the spammer. best bet is to throw the message in the trash and delete, and hopefully your email program has a decent spam/junkmail filter.

I use two email adresses.

One for friends and family, the other for website registrations, internet forms, etc.

Virtually no spam on the friends and family address. The other is bombarded, but generally I don't care. Just delete it all every now and then.

I've had my e-mail address posted in my signature on this website for over 3 years now. The amount of spam mail I receive isn't any more or less than when I didn't have it posted here. With how visible it is, I'd expect to be getting tons of spam but that isn't the case. I even have my e-mail listed on my website and that hasn't caused an increase at all.

I can "almost" guarantee you that if you are getting spam, its not because of posting your e-mail here.

In the past when I have sold stuff on FM I've been hit by spammers from other web forums telling me to go check out their forums. It's a joke, annoying, and those people should really get a life. You check your email for what looks like someone interested in the item you have for sale and instead it's some low life trying to benefit himself by directing you to his site. I would NEVER visit or become a regular at someplace that uses tactics like that. I'm sure many of you have had similar experiences.

3 Will you let our shipping company to come to your house for the pick up of the item, cos we don't want you to worry yourself about the shipping of the item,

4.what is the present condition of the item,get back to me now in order to know the condition.

5,will send excess fund the same day you received the payment to the shipping company name and address.

6. You are to send your NAME,ADDRESS,TEL # CITY,CODE,STATE.to mail out the payment to you okay.

I've gotten similar emails when I've posted stuff for sale on Craigslist. As hanson has stated, I haven't gotten any spam and my email has been posted in my signature on this site as well.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

Tickets are $17 and all ticket holders under this partnership will pick up their cap at the game. Instructions for purchasing tickets are at mndnr.gov/saints. Buy licenses at any Minnesota Department of Natural Resources license agent, online with a mobile or desktop device at mndnr.gov/buyalicense, or by phone at 888-665-4236.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
