      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 .

Preference level

Recommended Posts

Going into this application process my group had one preference point. We we're drawn and it said my preference point level was 2. That isn't right. Should be 0 preference level for next year. Did that happen to anyone else?

Well, at least that is a good thing.

I get drawn on average every other year on my own property.

I let my buddy hunt my property also and he gets drawn almost every year.

Frankly that kind of P's me off and shows me the system is not right.

oh well, not much one can do I guess!

When you check your results, it shows your preference level for the current drawing, not for next year. Anyone who has never applied or who was drawn the previous time gets a preference level of one. If you applied the last time and were not drawn, then your preference level would be two. If you didn't get drawn again, then next year it would be a three.

That's what I figured. If I remember right though last time I had two points and drew it noted that I was then at zero points. Which is the exact opposite of this drawing. Seems strange they would write it that way especially since I currently had one point going into the lottery. But the DNR wouldn't screw the lottery system up, right bear hunters. wink

Feathers, if you're drawn and don't purchase a license your preference level goes to zero. I'm almost sure of it. Cause you were drawn in the lottery and that's what recognizes the point system vs if it was purchased or not.

If you get drawn but don't purchase a license are your preference levels affected?

Yes they are affected. You have used your preference points to draw a tag. It doesn't matter if you purchase a license once you have been drawn. Your preference points get reset to the lowest priority.

Your preference I think will be 1 once you apply next year. It reads 2 now,because that is your level at time of drawing. One ponit from last year,and now anouther for this year. You will be 0 after this season until you do put in for 2014,than it goes to 1.
