      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 .

Your Help Is Needed - Volunteers - UPDATED 8/28/06!

Recommended Posts

Deitz Dittrich

I know there was a thread on here of people willing to help down in southern Minnesota.

Just now on the radio they were begging for volunteers. If your willing to help out some fellow MN people, you are supposed to go to the Cleavland Fire hall and bring gloves.

Thanks to all who donate their time now in a time of need!

Note from Rick 8/28/06: There is a real need for more volunteers - Le Sueur County officials want volunteers to call their hotline at (507) 357-8211.

The News last night sat NOT to go to local fire halls, because they are not set up to handle the volunteers. The News station had an 800 number to call instead. (sorry, I don't remember which station it was)

Yes, It was tornados. They were on the ground for about 26 miles. The damage is unblieveable what wind can do at 180 mph.

On monday I get to take a ride in an airplane to see the damage from the air. I hope to get some pictures

I went to help out after a tornado hit the Siren Wisconsin area and after a tornado hit an area south of Lakeville a few years back.

Its amazing what a tornado can do, but its more amzaing what a team of volunteers can do. I saw a crew of 10-15 people completely clean up a families property in a matter of hours. What would have taken the family weeks to do we did in hours.

Don't feel like you can't help, a few people getting together can do wonders for these areas. Also if you aren't phyiscally able to carry downed tree limbs or do other heavy labor give that number a call, there are usally just as many jobs that need doing that don't require heavy labor. there are usually donation centers where people can drop of donations for victims, these places need lots of volunteers as well. Just go out and do what you can. Everyone should see these things for themselves atleast once in their life.
