      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 .

Scopes and Parallax?

Recommended Posts

Knute78

I have a scope which says it has a 50-yard factory-set parallax. I have read and somewhat understand the idea of what parallax is and how it affects what movement we see from the retical to the target but do not understand what it exactly means in a real world hunting situation.

I know shot-guns, rimfires, and muzzzleloader scopes parallax are generally set at 50 and rifle scopes at 100, and some can be adjusted if purchased with that option.

Does a scope with a 50 or 100 yrd factory setting mean I should sight the scope in at those ranges or can I sight them in for whatever ranges I feel comfortable to shoot?

Any helpful information is appreciated on what to sight a gun in at with a 50 yrd parallax. Or am I just making a big fuss about nothing?

love to hunt

Not an issue. Sight it in at what ever distance you normally use and go hunting.

almostthere!

Set it in any distance you want. All it means is that you will get the clearest view at those preset distances, but I haven't notice any differences whether it's 100 or 300 yards on my rifle scope. Must be a bad eye. grin.gif
