      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 .

I've recieved a questionare in the mail a couple of times. They ask you to fill out what you watch on TV or listen to on the radio during a week and then you mail it back. Its been over a year since I last did one so I don't remember everything it asks.

The cable and dish companies know what your watching and all of the new TV's have a small camera in them and they can watch you watching TV. Some of them even know when your digging through the fridge to get something to eat!!

In all serious now, the primary way they know what people are watching is that Neilsen selects families from all over the country to monitor what they watch. The families are of course willing volunteers and they install a box in their homes. I am not sure if they get paid for it or not. They use this sample size to determine the likely number of people watching each program. Mailings and phone surveys are also used but they do not provide real time data.

Actually there are many things similar to this such as families reporting what items they bought at the grocery store, what coupons they used, etc.

I used to work for a company that did market research like this and its pretty interesting. We had one division that paid people to watch television for the sole purpose of picking out and recording product placement within television shows. That info was collected and sold to competitors so they could keep track of what their competition is doing in the ad arena.
