FYI.

Rick and the IT crew is in the middle of making some upgrades within the site as well as working on some of the speed issues we have had. For this particular forum and other forums, as you can see, the "sticky" posts are gone. This, amongst many other things, are being worked on. Thank you for your patience with this.

I see there is a pm set up now, does this mean we will have the pm option now?

Really like the new set-up. By moving the forum events to that area, it now seems less cluttered.

I see it only shows total replies on the topics now as opposed to the total replies and most recent replies (per each time we log in). Is already making things confusing trying to remember which reply was the last one I read everytime I log on...makes things very tough on the topics with more than 20 or so responses. Are the IT guys gonna put that back to the way it was?

We are working on the forums and some changes are taking place to speed them up. We do not know how long the process will take.

Again, please be patient with this whole deal. Just because you see something now that may be different, doesn't mean it will be in place forever.

Thanks. I'll be sure to pass that along.

UPDATE: Rick is still crankin'. The changes that we have seen to this point are only temporary. There will be a formal announcement once the leaf has been turned, so please hang in there. We're in for a real treat. As for the questions on PM's, when it's all said and done, they will NOT be available.

Stay tuned...

We took a valid shot at it anyway. However, don't worry; you'll like the end result. Think of it as another Christmas present.

UPDATE: The bulk of the upgrade has been completed and Rick is now working on the finishing touches with the IT staff on a separate server. We do not see any of these changes yet, so please hang in there! I think you'll all like what you see.

I most certainly hope that our login history (the red () that show what you read)will be back. I sure hate reading the same post, over,over,over and over again. Not knowing when the last time I logged on was, what I already read and didn't read. I guess it doesn't matter if we log in or not as their probibly isn't any difference. Just venting, but this sucks as a login user. I'm gonna go read for Lakeiwanttobethere, but I have to start from 11/05.

There are some changes that could occur yet before all is done. Please bear with us all and when its done it will probably look somewhat different. All of these changes are for better speed and a better FM.

Thanks for your patience.

Lonnie,

Thanks for the input. Your concern and many others have all been taken into consideration and are in the process of being looked into.

UPDATE: Rick looked over a draft of the updates today with the IT staff but found some areas that still need tweaking. The changes will be announced and visible as soon as possible. As Tom mentioned, we thank you all for your patience with this but in the end, it's for the better.

UPDATE: The forum upgrade is completed other than some adjustments Rick needs to make. What Rick has to do could take 5 - 10 days barring any unexpected "challenges". The "new" FM is just around the corner! grin.gif

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.
