      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 .

NASCAR approves double file restarts!!!

Recommended Posts

I can't believe nobody has brought this up yet. All I can say is its about time!!!

June 5, 2009, 2:56 PM EDT DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - In a midseason attempt to add some excitement to Cup racing, NASCAR has moved to double-file restarts beginning with this weekend's race at Pocono Raceway.

"We've heard the fans loud and clear," NASCAR chairman Brian France said Thursday. "Double-file restarts, shootout-style are coming to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. This addition to the race format is good for competition and good for the fans."

The first- and second-place drivers will line up side-by-side as the green flag drops for each restart. The former restart procedure had lap-down cars on the inside, and the lead-lap cars on the outside for the restarts.

NASCAR recently used the double-file format for its non-points All-Star Race. The format will be adapted for the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in the future.

The race leader will have the option to restart on the inside or outside lane. The second-place driver would then restart next to the leader.

Drivers in odd number positions will restart on the inside lane, while drivers in even number spots restart on the outside. They'll get their first shot at trying out the new rule Sunday at the 500-mile race at Pocono.

All restarts will use the same format regardless of the number of laps remaining.

One of the ideas behind the move was to eliminate lapped cars getting in the way of the leaders on a restart.

"I'm excited about it," Cup points leader Tony Stewart said. "The good thing is that when they drop the green, you're going to be racing with the guys you're racing for position instead of trying to clear lapped cars."

I saw that, it should bring a little more excitement back into it. No more fighting lapped cars.

I like the "competition" restarts a lot better. It never made sense to have the lap down cars on the inside especially on the tracks where the inside is the preferred line/groove!!
