      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 .

Way to go Twins!

This is why this team is going to [PoorWordUsage] us all off this year! They beat Boston 3 out of 4, should be on a roll and get a break facing a ice-cold team in Toronto. What do you know? We're getting it handed to us! This is going to be a tough year with these ridiculous ups and downs.

This is a young team, stuff like this will happen! Just remember we are in first place! Look back a few months hardly anyone thought this team would be even a contender, here they are in first place and they are still complaining shocked . Give them a break! They are 38 games into the season and like 3 or 4 games back from having the best record in MLB.

Well, Brendon Harris, Michael Cuddyer and Adam Everett are not young players and they should not be making mental errors. I have no problem with gomez airmailing it into the dugout...not sure how a center fielder can do that but...hes young.

Harris has to turn that double play, everett has to come up with a better throw home, and cuddyer must make that catch that went off his glove.

It is a young team and an enjoyable one...but no one wants to see the veterans on the team making errors on the field. Hopefully they can continue to stay in the race and their pitching continues to keep them in games.

We are in first place and hopefully we can remain there...

I think tonight's game has been much more frustrating. We have made a couple huge mistakes on the basepaths. I know that Gomez and Young are only 22, but they pulled a couple of bonehead moves tonight. Boof also was frustrating. But, I guess you gotta take the bad with the good with a young team like this...

I guess after Gomez threw that ball in the dugout Gardy asked him to sign the ball for him. The Twins are satisfying me this year so far. They are doing better than what i thought they were going to do. I am just enjoying watching these young guys develope into a great team. Give it a a year or 2 then start complaining.

I think fishinphilth is right on...this is a young team, and you will see inconsistency like this with a young team - particularly young starting pitching.

There will be a lot of rough patches as the team develops, but there will also be some good streaks when these young players show what they are capable of.

Patience this year...and if all goes according to plan, this team should be a contender next year and in the new ballpark year of 2010.

Anyway, I am off to the Black Hills and then on to Denver for a little vacation...Twins vs Rockies at Coors Field this weekend...

Yeah, the twins are young...that argument will get old for sure if they continue to make these blunders...

What the heck was Boof doing on that throw to third!

typical MN team. Play to the level of the opponent. We either rise up to play a great gameagainst a great team or stoop down to the level of a lesser team. Vikes, Twins, Wild no matter.

Just sit back and enjoy that is why they are there, for us to enjoy the game.

That wasn't boof's throw to 3rd, it was Jesse Crain...

They are young and it is still early in the season. Don't get your panties in a bunch until the all-star break

Kubel blowing that stop sign was terrible!

I agree with you guys on being patient with this team. There will definately be some growing pains this season. This young team will excite you and frustrate you throughout the year. If we can keep this team together for a couple years, I think we can seriously contend. Look how far they are coming already, I mean many "experts" had them last in the AL Central with NO chance of contending.

    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
    • I am pretty much ready. Not sure where you guys are hunting but up here the weather looks really good. Cloudy, 50's, NW wind 5-10 MPH. Will be taking my son on his fist duck opener. I myself have not gone for many years so am actually quite excited for it. There are a few birds around so we should get a few. Will be hiking into a WPA that is a bit of a walk so crowds will not be an issue. Good chance we will have the pond to ourselves.
    • So, you're at Emma's for lunch?
    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
    • Lunch.....fit for a king! Roast beef commercial with left over beef roast. Just thought I'd share. 
    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins.
