      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 .

It's fun, but the sports games are some of the better games. Some other games don't work too well with the controllers. Anyone wanna buy one? I'm looking to dump mine.

You can buy the regular playstation type controller for the wii. Just an option. I like it because when my son does want to play video games he actually has to move around, not just sit there staring at the TV. We have a strict, Sunshine = no wii rule in our house anyway but he does love that thing.

I have mine over at the neighbors house. We play it on their big screen out in the garage. It's fun with a bunch of people. I do like the fact that you're not just sitting on your duff. I just think that the games are aimed towards kids more. Just my opinion though.

I hear the sunshine rule! I always had that growing up. I don't have any kids, but my nieces are on a similar rule. They get wii time docked if they don't behave. For some reason, they've been really good lately

Best not get mario cart! Its kind of nice to finally have a game that you can sort of relax while you play. The Wii wheels are definitely a must. One of my favorites so far!!

personally I like the boxing and the baseball best...

both are actually somewhat active sports too so if you got kids they won't be total couch potatoes if they are playing videogames

out of the sports games the boxing is definitely the most active. if you guys like 4 player action with other people over definitely look into smash bros brawl. awesome multiplayer fun.

I had seen Mario Kart in every store for the past month, then this past week my oldest son turned 5, and I couldn't find it anywhere. What happened all of a sudden- they all disappeared. I finally found a couple in Spirit Lake Iowa at a Wal-Mart. Never thought I would drive an hour+ for a video game, and boy, am I glad I did. What a great game, esp with Wi-Fi playing against other people. BTW, I am playing it more than he is

We got Wii Fit as a gift. It's pretty cool, too!

That would probably get used as much as the clothes drier..I mean treadmill at our house! whistle

That's funny! I think I've gotten more exercise from moving our treadmill than actually using it.

Thats what I'm talking about. Somebody had the great idea to get the one that does everything except exercise for you for about 1.6 trillion dollars and now it does nothing!

If Wii made a treadmill that you had to use in order to play i would think about gettin one!! grin

There is a game on the Wii fit that you jog on. You put the remote in your pocket and chase another Wii character around. The Wii fit is just like all the other Wii games, it's kind of cheesy but fun. Kids love the Wii fit so far, but for me it's just ok.

Do you get an actual work out from it though?

Actually, yes! The hula hooping had me sweating the other night. It actually weighs you and tracks your weight over time.

    • I know folks who clean out the martin house's every year.....
    • I rinsed them and put them out whole.
    • Well, fellas,  lemme tell ya:  I've had one terrific life and done more things than you'd probably believe.  In fact I told my wife one evening shortly after we had moved to the lower 48, "I think you had best cool it with some of your recollections of our time and adventures in the North because I get the feeling most people won't believe you anyway. And to this day we don't shoot off our mouth too much just for that reason. EVERYBODY should be as lucky as I have been!!  
    • Sounds like there will be 17 guns offered!! Come  on the odds of winning a gun are great
    • I will go to small mom and pop bait shops I know pay more for some jugs but I love the service 
    •   Ufatz, not doubting a word you have to say, you are quite the colorful creator. The stories you have told over the years of trapping in the Yukon Territory. Living in a log cabin, driving old trucks with right and left hand lug nuts and fighting off Big Foot have been interesting to listen to.  To say the least. And now, you live in MN and drive a Mercedes Benz!  Hat's off to you're life sir.
    • Just make a point of telling the shop people to use a torque wrench and then tell them the value you want on your vehicle,  which you will have gotten from the manual. My Benz's have aluminum wheels for the most part and you can distort and ruin one it a Millenial Ape gets at them with a giant super powered wham-bam air powered wrench. I've found too many that know drugs,  not lugs.
    • Hey 3rd in the central and winning games on the road, we are certainly trending in the right direction at the right time of year. After some rocky starts to their careers Zucker and Granlund have really turned into some amazing players, like anyone they go hot and cold but I can't really say enough good things about them. Along with Staal they have really carried our offence this year. Hopefully in the next 20 games we can get some other guys going. Coyle can give us more, Nino looks a little off but it sounds like he is still fighting that ankle injury. Parise looks like his old self more and more but just not converting like he use to, hopefully that changes. I was against making a deadline move earlier in the year but if we keep this pace up we really could use another top9 winger, Ennis just isn't cutting it. Absolutely do not want to spend a 1st rounder on anyone at this point but if they can pick up someone decent on the cheap it might be worth it. We still have the majority of the team that was 2nd in the west last year and if they can play up a little closer to their potential there is not reason we can't make some noise in the playoffs in some kind of underdog fashion.
    • I went to the store in Woodbury a few times for reloading supplies and thought it was a good store. I like that format better than the upscale Cabela's model. 
    •  Did you grind them up a little bit or put them out whole
