      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 .

If the crdit card comapnay can give something away, one is paying for it. Nothing is free from these CC companies.

I have a USBank account and have the Check Card with miles as well as a CC with the miles. It's $25 a year fee to use the cards. But I've also earned a ton of miles using it. I just charge everything or use my check card and then pay it off every month. I've got close to a hundred thousand miles using it. Paid for our trip to Florida a couple of years ago when we went to pick up our baby girl. They aren't "giving" it away, it's a deal they have worked out with the airline. Every $2 you spend you get 1 mile.

I tell you guys. I have a Bass Pro Shop Visa that I charge everything on, gas, meals, etc. I have accumulated $275 worth of credit for Bass Pro merchandise and have not paid a dime because I pay my balance in full each month. Pretty sweet deal and the card looks great. Check into it. I am looking into the Cabela's Visa as well.

I've got an american express card I use for my business with 5% cash back.

I kmow of alot of guys that run every purchase through these cards, and just pay them off at the billing cycle.

There's a HSOforum..... I can't remember the name right now, something like creditcards.com or .... well anyways, there's 50+ cards there, and you can compare them all, and see if you want cash back, miles, gas cards, 0% interest for balance transfers, whatever you're looking for, and you can choose which one suits you, rather than try to look through all the mailings.

I have this card also, 7.99% interest, and cash back rewards. Have used over $500 in rewards for various merchandise including my Aqua Vu camera.

The Citi Dividends card gives you 1% back on all purchases and 2% on gas and Groceries (up to $300 per year) that is the best deal I have found and use it for every purchase I make, from fast food to vehicles.

This is totally free money - no catch. Of course if you mis-use a credit card (i.e. spend money you don't have), you'll pay big time in intrest fees.

I would assume the Bass Pro Shops card is 2 or 3% and if you spend money there anyway that's an even better deal.

I've had the bass pro for years now and I believe it is 1% on everything and 2% on orders from them and 4% on their brand merchandise. We usually have a couple hundred bucks every year that I can blow on outdoor stuff, Rememeber they also have the Red Head brand for your hunting gear. I've always paid off my balace. There's no annual fee with theirs either. But if your card charges you an annual fee, you are a sucker if you pay it. Just tell them you'll take your business elsewhere and they'll waive it, or at least they used to.

I agree,it works if you pay it off every month. I got a scheels card, I put gas, groceries, ect. on it and make sure I pay it off each month. I got $250 ready to be spent at scheels now!

Sorry off the subject slightly....

You guys talking about the BPS or cabelas cards, another option is the Gander Mastercard. Earn 5% rewards (best I know of) on ALL product purchased at Gander and 1% everywhere else, no annual fee. Save 10% off your first purchase with the card and get special coupons just for card members. Also, there probably is a GM within 30 mins of you at any point in the metro.

Yea were just gonna have to bail out airlines again just because they wont charge what they should. Or they will down size and thousands of people will lose work. Just so you can get cheaper and quicker transportation.

The way the airlines are going right now, I don't know if I'd be trying to bank too many miles. Who knows if you'll actually get to use them...

It seams everytime they get into financial trouble they "adjust" their frequent flier program. I had a NWA Worldperks account (not a C.C., just an account that I could accumulate miles with when I traveled) and I burned those miles up recently on a personal flight as I have the feeling they will "downgrade" the benefits again soon.

I also just heard on the news that one one airline (not sure if it is Delta or...) that they are charging $50 to redeem the fequent flyer miles now. kind of takes away some of the incentive now....?

Cabelas card is the way to go- but as with any credit card pay your bill of in full at the end of the month. I have been putting all my bills, plus gas, etc etc on my cabelas card, i think i have close to 100$ worth of free stuff at cabelas coming!

i dont remember who said but they were right, the free stuff isnt always free. Somewhat right, SOMEONE is paying for my free stuff at cabelas, but it isnt me!!

    • 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.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.
