      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 .

Wi Bear Question

Recommended Posts

Ok I have a couple questions about the lottery system.

1. Before I bought a preference point I had 3 points. After I bought a point I now have 4 points. So my question is for next year.... If select Harvest tag option  next year would I be going into the lottery with 4 or 5 points before the drawing?

2. How does the point system works? Do you buy a point and then they do the drawing and if you don't get drawn you retain those points for next year?

3. When should you contact an outfitter to book a hunt. ( I am applying for zone d)

I also apply for Zone D you can request a harvest tag every year if you want you don't need to just apply for preference point people been getting kill tags anywhere from 5  to 7 points witch is actually years. Seeing this year me and the Son are both on 5  I just went for the point and him  a kill  tag ill do that until he gets his kill tag then the following year I get my kill tag. I wouldn't contact a outfitter until you know you have been selected for a kill. The answer to you other question  is you will be going in with 5 points after you apply next year so I would start selecting harvest tag.
