      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 .

Spearing game for the Wii

Recommended Posts

I was thinking while i was wrapping the kids'Wii Christmas present last night...why isn't there a spearing/fishing game? that'd be the coolest thing to pass time till ice. it could incorporate strategy of location, decoy selection, time of day, motion, and all the other factors...i dunno, just seemed like a cool idea.

EA Sports...you listening??? wink

I made a computer ice fishing game in high school in 1976. This was on the old teletype machine and you bought time from a central computer in Minneapolis and dialed in with a modem. It was designed such that you would get more bites if you chose lighter line and jigged more often. With the lighter lines though you had a better chance of breaking off if the fish was bigger. If I would have pursued a programming career which I almost did, I would probably have been retired by now.

i always thought it'd be a cool too to have a spear house at the MDAA booth where a flat panel tv (floor mounted) would be in place of the spear hole. when a feller/kid would walk in to inspect what's going on inside the house,they'd see a recording of a actual spearing footage and see what it's like to spear and see the sights of what's under the lake.

this is of course after they play a game of Wii Spearing '11 cool

And who would buy the replacement TV when I got excited and threw my spear through your plasma? grin

Would you have to tip the Wii remote once in a while to drink a beer? Isn't EA Sports saying "If its in the game, its in the game".
