      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 .

Any Firearm Safety Instructors Out There?

Recommended Posts

CornPirateKiller

Are you a firearm safety instructor? Really? I've got an offer for you. Here's the deal...

20 years ago, a guy I was hunting with put a bullet in my neck when he thought I was a squirrel or something. The slug nicked my spine and paralized me from the neck down. I was lucky, though, and my spinal cord wasn't severed. After 7 months in the hospital, I walked out using crutches (still use 'em.)

Anyway, about 12 years ago, I got asked to talk to some high school health classes about my experiences with a spinal cord injury. I really enjoyed it so I volunteered to a couple of firearm safety instructors I knew to talk to their classes too.

I really enjoy talking to the kids in these classes and really give them a dose of reality about how dangerous guns can be. This is my way of giving back to a sport that has given me a lot of pleasure.

I live near Rochester and speak to several firearm safety classes in the area each year. Any instructors out there like to have me come and shock the heck out of the kids? I don't get paid for this, this is on my time and dime. I'll speak anywhere around SE Minnesota. If you want me to travel farther, a little gas money is a good persuader. Think about it. If I can make them think when they're in the woods and fields, it's worth my time.

If you're interested, shoot me a note at

I can vouch for Kurt - he's a good
speaker - gets the message across -
and the kids remembered what he said.

He spoke at my last class in the spring, and I'm having him come back again.

Thanks Kurt!

Thanks for volunteering. I have passed your note onto other instructors I know who may be contacting you in the future.
