      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 .

DNR Deer hunt data

Recommended Posts

I've been watching this forum for quite some time now, and decided to throw in a question for Mr. Cornicelli.

The DNR does a great job at breaking down the deer harvest data, but my question is why does it take 6 months or more after the seasons are over to post the numbers? It's all computerized, everything's run through the electronic licensing system, so it certainly seems like after the first year of using ELS, the template for the data would already be there and would automatically update as the numbers came in from the system. There should be no reason for the numbers to not be ready until July or later

It usually takes until March to get everything cleaned up and analyzed. Certainly, you are free to call me on the phone and I can go into great detail regarding everything that is required to analyze the harvest data. I actually sent the harvest report over to our web team in late March and I just noticed it never got posted (I don't routinely check our HSOforum because I don't need to). I resent the file after I read the first complaint on this board regarding the length of time it takes. That was an oversight on my part as I didn't check our HSOforum and didn't get a single request all spring for the report. I just presumed it was sitting on our web page when it really wasn't. I just checked our HSOforum and unless it's hidden, it's still not up. I'll deal with it on Monday and make sure it's posted.

Again, if you want to talk about steps I go through to analyze the data and construct the report, please call me. Otherwise, suffice to say it's not so easy as automatically dumping the data into a spreadsheet. For one, registration isn't 100% electronic yet.

Thanks for the direct answer Lou, I appreciate your willingness to come online, with your own name as a user name no less, and answer questions and explain the DNR thought processes. I am not sure if there is another topic in FM where the DNR is so fairly represented. With all of the changes this year, I anticipate a very busy and confusing fall for everyone.....

I appreciate that very much but to be honest, there aren't many changes this year. More lottery areas, a few more restrictions on permit use and youth antlerless areas pretty much sums it up. It's minor compared to the last few years! smile Well .. there is Zone 3 but I don't own that one!

Zone 3 is/was my hunting grounds and was what I was refering too. I am heading home to IA this year to hunt with friends/family. We are talking about flip flopping every other year, we'll have to work a little bit to find some land in zone 3 but we have connections
