      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 .

Nils question

Recommended Posts

I have been having a problem with my Nils power auger where it drills about three to four inches into the ice and then comes to a halt. There is no down pressure being applied and if I apply up pressure it goes into a high speed wobble. It's not a dull blade as Surface Tension sharpened it last spring and I didn't use it until last weekend. A buddy thought he could possibly smell the clutch heating up. I'm no gearhead so I thought I would throw it out there to some of you guys that are. Any thoughts?

 Email me.

 Could be a few things.

Old gas.  I recommend 87 octane mixed at 80:1 Amzoil Saber with no other additives.  Come Spring when it comes time to put the auger away you can use a non ethanol fuel with a fuel stabilizer.

Dirty carb and carb needing adjustment.  I have a 262 here that the owner said never cut right. I did a carb adjustment and he'll be getting back a Tanaka/Nils ready to rip holes.

 Blade too aggressive.  Do you have another blade to try?
