      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 .

This Is Cool! Look What I Got In The Mail!!!!!!!!!!!! (Includes Pics)

Recommended Posts

I figured the other day I needed some signage for my rigs (truck and boat). I click on the link Rick had in the “Outdoor Discussion, Clean-ups, and Agendas - Keep it Civil” about stickers from Fishing Minnesota, Hot Spots Outdoors and Ice leaders. I found out how easy they are to get. I bought some.

Well today I get a cardboard tube in the mail (less than 2 days). I look and it is my stickers. I had some other things to this evening, but kept those stickers on my mind. Once the chores where done, the first thing I wanted to do was get those stickers on my rigs. Here is how it went (pretty easy):

Got my stickers:

Dirty, dirty window!

U-BGeh6laOmGFY+TNdjRxAS2R+QHNSi70300.jpg

Spray some windex on window or surface!

Rub window with rag!

Wipe clean with a clean dry rag!

Mark a center on the sticker!

Peal sticker off of backing!

Center the sticker on window, with mark!

Once centered, start working from the middle outward to the right and back again to the left. All ways start from the middle!

Part two!!!!!!!!

Once this is done, rub the sticker all over to clear any air bubbles!

Smooth all the sticker area!

Start peeling back, the backing of the sticker!

SFbRneVfuydHB8aLG1fxPomF0XA0pKrD0300.jpg

A little more!

TieKcUqsuZDAl4YrK0vvkfgE9KuHj8RW0300.jpg

Done!

TxE55z+Rvk5xvAmJ4WJsuen57JXuUM3m0300.jpg

Do a final rub down to work all the air bubbles out!

O4hdCzKMLuRLOpAFt+9IlzwrNehNEJqT0300.jpg

I also threw a couple on the boat!

Now, if you get an air bubble you can not finger out, take a little needle pin and poke a hole in the middle of the air bubble and work the bubble to the pin hole.

This only took minutes and I have the FM/HSO Badge now!

Who knows????? This could get you out of traffic ticket or a search by the D.N.R., grin NO!!!! Just fooling around!

They look cool and I am sure to meet new friends at the launch's and gas stations. A good way to meet a fellow F.M.'er.

Nice job Josh and they look good. I agree with Airjer, get a sign squeegee and life will be much easier placing those decals on and getting them smooth without air bubbles. You did do a very nice job without the tool.

Those look sharp. Been thinking of doing the same to my rig. I have some I got from Upnorth I think and they are pretty sweet too. Not HSO, but nice fish ones.

I figure since a squeegee is not furnished with the stickers, I would show the mass's the "Shade Tree" squeegee wink :

Plus I just had to get it on grin and actually if you start from the middle on the HSO sticker and work your way out you will have no bubbles at all. I did have a window tint squeegee at the ready, but these stickers went on so easy, it was not needed.

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
