      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 .

Xbox 360 elite

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of buying a used one just because I want to upgrade my maddden capabilities from my ps2. What do you have to say about the system? Anybody have any red ring stories? IF so how much did it cost out of factory warranty to get the unit fixed?

Bought my Elite the day they hit the shelves, I have never had a problem with this one or the 2-Pro Systems that we bought on their launch date. The only reason I bought an elite was for the bigger (120gb) Hard-drive and HDMI.I sold one of the original launch sysetems to a friend and he is still using it problem free.

I’ve said multiple times that I haven’t had any issues with my 360.

Well, low and behold I was watching a fishing DVD the other night and it took a dump on me. Yep, three red lights frown

Called the Xbox hotline and it is currently getting fixed under warranty, with no cost to me.

Sounds like at least one person actually uses their XBOX more than they are on fishingminnesota. I don't have one, but I don't think I could log that many hours on a video game system.

It would be fun to try though!! The wife is amazed how quick i go though a season on madden, I would hate to tell her how much I used to play wink We had a nice tiff over lunch about the purchase of another system, I told her maybe I will start goin to the bar every night!! Anybody have any ammo that will help get me over the hill with her?

ive had my elite for 6 mos. problem free so far, but i just screwed myself by typing that. if it does hit the fan, do you need your original receipt to get the warranty or what is the process for that. one more thing. are they all under 3 yr. warranties now or just 1. i heard they changed it to 3 a while back.

Believe it or not, I'm on my fourth 360. The first 2 had the red lights, the 3rd all of a sudden wouldn't read any of my discs. It was under warranty though so I sent it in and they sent me a new one for free. The fourth one still runs, but it takes a while to read discs and once in a while the unplayable disc message comes up. No worries though, I just take the game out and try it again and it usually reads.

I don't know why I have all this bad luck. I take good care of my 360(s), I never abuse them or leave discs in while not in use. Just my luck I guess!

    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
