      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 .

Michelle Wie

Recommended Posts

I know not that many on here follow the LPGA, but Michelle Wie has pulled out of the British Open this weekend to play with the men on a PGA event with a sponsor exemption. I read today that Sorenstam, Alfredsson, Creamer and others are not in agreement with the decision.

She must obviously be a draw for the mens tournament for novelty; no wins on the LPGA tour, a couple seconds and DQ'd last week for not signing a score card usually aren't the qualifications needed to move to the mens tour.

Did she make the right move? Was she afraid of the British Open? Did her parents/managers give her bad advice? Your thougts please.

Sounds like her dad is giving her real bad advice. She needs to win on the Womens tour first. If she doesn't start getting better advice there will be alot of talent wasted.

I agree with jigger-matt, she needs to win a few on the women's tour then she can mix in with the men. If she can't even win on the womens tour what is she trying to prove?

I think it is a shame. With her sponser exemption she takes away a spot from someone that has struggled to get in. How about the last guy that qualifies and gets bumped because of her gets to take her spot in the womens open. FOUL,FOUL-NO FAIR!!!! I bet he would make the cut. I personally would like to see it so the parents could get a taste of reality. She is just a kid.

Actually a sponsors exemption doesn't bump another player from the field. It's just an addition to the field.

When she starts winning on the LPGA tour she can then play on a regular basis on the LPGA tour. How the [PoorWordUsage] does anyone think this is a good idea. If this is just a money thing and they think they will draw a bigger crowd and more sponsors why don't some of the LPGA event sponsors push for Tiger of Phil to play in a ladies event. Those guys are automatic when it comes to bringing people out to the course.

It's a joke. Nothing more, nothing less. Publicity stunt. If she's playing I won't watch. If it's her parents idea and they continue to control what she does and when she does it don't be suprised if she winds up on the surreal life or doing some cheap porn video in the future.

OK. Deep breath. Get yourself together. I'm better now.

My guess is Nike's behind this. She has been a disaster for them and this is a way to get her (their products) some exposure. Money talks and Nike spends as much as anyone to promote the PGA and the LPGA. I'd rather see John Daly, not as fun to look at, but a lot more fun to watch. blush

i think it is just a money thing ! mostly for her dad! they are paying big bucks for her to play, and it seems that is the only thing her dad has had on his mind. not what is good for her, but how can he make the most money off her. it's a shame! i think she could be a great player if they would let her come up thru the ranks.

If she'd stick with the LPGA I think she would dominate with a little more experience.

The next thing you hear about her will be that she's dating Tommy Lee or Pam Anderson. Just a hunch.

    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon.
