      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 .

General "on-line" question

Recommended Posts

I have an item listed on a free site. Got a email from an out of state person that wants to buy them. I checked his email and he has an eb*** store. He wants to pay me through paypal and send a pick-up tag for the product I'm selling. I called the number on the eb*** site and he answered the phone and sounds legit. What you you do?

PayPal is OK. If you don't have a PayPal account, it's pretty easy to set one up, then when the funds arrive in your account you have the money. You can transfer it to your own bank account electronically at no charge.

Thanks, I do have a paypal account. I just don't want to get sc****wed. The guy doesn't speak real good english, if you know what I mean...I'm leary. Think paypal could take the risk out of it.

Make sure you get the money before you do anything. I sell alot of stuff on ebay and Pay Pal is the only way i take they money. Its the safest. Depending on the item you are selling i would make him pay for shipping and you ship it to him so that way you know that is not BS.

One thing to remember about ebay... Make sure you never ever respond to a email right from your personal account. People will try to send you email about your product and if you reply to them out of your personal account they can hack into yoru ebay account. Make sure if you get a email from someone that you respond back to them using your Ebay email account. I have had someone hack into my account and its a pain. Do you understand what i'm trying to say???

The only time I have used paypal is with ebay items I have bought or sold, never through cr****list. This guy is from TX and he found my listing up here. I would give him my email address and he would go into paypal and pay me... is that correct? He is sending a fedex p/u for the product. I hear you about the spam/scams on ebay and paypal after you make a deal. I think I might just put the stuff on ebay and sell it myself, as long as I have to pkg it, I will get more money for it. Another thought, couldn't he receive the product and say something was wrong and file a claim with paypal and I they would debit my account?

I would just tell him that you are going to list it on ebay and list it and send him the link. Its so much easyer and make him win it and pay for everything..

What i do on all my listing is i put No Refunds no matter the bottome of the page so you can just go back to that. Let me know if you have any other question.

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.
