I've used different devices and changed email addresses twice thinking that it was a filter, but I still get nothing.

Message me your email address please.

It's likely happening because your email on record is bouncing.

tacklejunkie,I approved your email address change. A confirmation email was sent and you did not confirm. If anyone else has the issue  be sure to check your email filters and have the confirmation email sent again.

We always respond to messages we see.

In the last week I can't bring up the FM forum at all? It just spools then stops and never opens. :(

So, what is this?  We need to re-register for FM?   Or is it something else.  I click on FM and get the home page.  Click on forums get the home page.      The button to log in is gone.  Does no one test this stuff before it goes live?  It looks like the page at fishingminnesota/forums is the home page so there is just a page pointing at itself so far as forums go.   Shouldn't the home page be fishingminnesota.com and the page at /forums the one with links to each of the forums?  

Why not just roll back whatever changes were made until the problem can be solved?  

Note, This will get you to the fishing reports sub forum.

only thing we can advise right now is to clear your cache in your browser. I believe @Rick is trying to resolve the redirect issue

I know its frustrating hopefully Rick will chime in with an update

I looked at the source for the page.  Fishingminnesota.com/forums is that home page looking thing.   The button/link to forums points to fishingminnesota.com/forums.  So unless you guys changed something in the last hour or so, clearing a cache isn't going to do it.

Still does exactly the same thing even using edge browser, which I almost never use.   go to fishingminnesota.com.   Get a home page.   Click on "forums" button.  Get same page.  rinse and repeat.

Seems to be fixed, as of now.  Just checked.  Hit the fm button, got the listings, browsed a forum, hit home.  Oops. 

Just don't hit the home button while browsing or you will be back to the home page trap. 

Just tried again and it is back to being broken.   Very strange.

Another experiment.  Brought up HSO on chrome.   Clicked the FM link.  Forum list page showed up.   

http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/   is the link.   

Browsed a forum

Clicked on "home" up near the top 

went to the home page thing with the pheasant.  

Now won't go back to forum list page, even using the history button on chrome.   

The page with the pheasant also comes up at http://fishingminnesota.com/

If I click on one of the posts listed on the right side I go there, but the link to the levels above is grayed out.

The whole split with FM/HSO has to be one of the most absurd things I've ever seen. Taking something that was awesome and make it more difficult and less user friendly. Trouble logging in, finding posts, remembering which page you made a post, and even just trying to get to the page from a bookmark. Unbelievable! I used to be a daily poster and viewer of FM - had to create a new screenname because of log in issues. Now I rarely ever even come to the page because of how difficult it has become and obviously the decrease in traffic has further compounded the issue. It is really sad because this used to be such a great site!

I'm still not having luck, on any device, any browser, and I have changed email addresses and checked the spam.  Yes, this used to be a great site, I think this has really hurt it. Not blaming anyone, sometimes changes have to made to web formats, but it is a shame.  I used to get a ton of great info on here.

Is it working ok now?

I couldn't duplicate the issue so it was very hit or miss. Hopefully the issue is resolved.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
