      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 .

Another lead change in the AL Central

Recommended Posts

Hopefully a while.

And if the Sox continue to Collapse like they are currently doing today, down 5-3 in the 8th in a game the Sox pitcher had a PERFECT Game going through 6 innings it may be a LONG while before another change occurs!

I don't know if I would call two losses to the best team in baseball a collapse but, it is what it is, and the roller coaster ride has many ups and downs left in the ride. May the best team win and here's hoping the Twins get the wild card!

TB is only the best team in baseball because the whitesox lost at home 2 gams in a row and the Twins beat the angels 2 games in a row in California.

booyah!

Windy, I would settle for the Twins getting the wild card, but I would prefer if the White Sox got it!

Sled,

The Rays are not just the best team in baseball but they have the largest percentage increase in victories over last year. Sounds like a little "sour grapes" coming out of the old Sled thread! How did you like AJ's well executed interference call yesterday? Smartest guy in baseball! Also, fun fact, the ump who made the call is the same ump who made the famous AJ call vs the Angels in the 2005 playoffs. AJ better buy that guy a steak dinner! Sox back on top.....to stay????

dude,

I am with you 100% there. I might even concede the Central if I could be assured that we got the wild card over the BoSox. Wouldn't it be sweet to have a playoff without the Yankees or the BoSox? ESPN would probably shut down for the playoffs and not even bother reporting!!!

Espn would have coverage for a Pong playoff if Bosox, or Yanks didnt make the playoffs!

Mike,

Let me guess, you loved him when he was sporting the Twinkie uni and making those plays against the White Sox, right? LOL And it was the same ump who gave him the drop 3rd strike call in the 2005 playoffs against the Angels, pretty weird!

I can't believe the ump made the call of interference, when he was looking the other way. He was looking at the person at the time on second base receiving the throw. Then he turns around and see's AJ laying on the ground crying like a cheap baby he is. I can't believe no other ump saw the flying elbow in mid air shot. When the ump looks at the replay, he is going the slap himself for falling for that ploy.

Your right Windy, he did it here also, but that doesn't mean we approved of what he was doing. He just plays the game the cheap way. I guess he doen't have the talent to play it right.

Still looking like 9-5 road trip.

Gary,

Aren't they 2 and 2 right now? That would lead me to believe in a 7 and 7 or at best 8 and 6, how do you take the leap of faith all the way to 9-6? Just trying to understand the Twinkie logic. Kind of like getting from smart baseball using all the rules to your advantage to a crying cheap baby! U guys crack me up. You could not have loved him more when he was sporting the Twinkie garb and you know it! LOL

Wandering,

I guess he had to stop in SF first, before coming to the White Sox but whatever, I seem to remember lots of Twink fans who loved AJ and did not like it when he got traded but I guess my memory is failing. And what is FYU? Was that just a typo and should have been FYI? I'm guessing yes.

Correct 4 wandering eyes. We HAD to PUT up with HIS actions, and we did have to listen to the aftermath, when he pulled some of this stuff. It and he was a pain in the neck.

Windy I am PETER POSITIVE and not a negative nelly,

    • Hey now that looks good! Fish on!

    •   I think you are right with the moderation of Facebook pages.  With forums (in general), it seems like moderators just delete individual posts, or ban certain users.  It seems like what happens more often than not with the Facebook posts is that they'll start off with good info, but 20 mins later some Richard comes along, and the admins just delete the entire post rather than delete certain comments.  Forums are still very much alive and well, and have a tremendous value with being able to retain content....I just don't see them being replaced by social media (in it's current format).  
    • MMMM Taste like chicken ,,, X we need to get together for a ride this year 
    • Threaded spaghetti hotdog bites. Simple, easy, and delicious. All you need is ketchup.
    • Yes del, they have quick pizza delivery  in town, right Dave? . We're having chili dogs n fries. But tacos or grilled cheese are tough to beat..
    •   Bear that's where you and I (and 100% of NHL Players, Coaches, Owners) disagree,  we want a Cup win and you want a good reg season record.  MN N Stars went to a Stanley Cup final and the Wild have made it to the quarters a couple times I believe so last year was not even close to the best season in MN hockey history. Reg Season means NOTHING! They could make the playoffs this year...lots of hockey left to be played and lots of teams closely fighting for spots at the moment which makes it interesting.
    • Lets frame these things for context, we were coming off our best season in MN hockey history, however we have been healthy for exactly 1 game this season and whether you like it or not that is relevant. If you asked him again I doubt you get the same response, or I doubt he said the same thing going into last year. And honestly who even says that? Not even the pens owner is that dumb, they frame it as a goal for the season. Either way its pointless to argue these things, we don't even know if they are in the playoffs let alone going on a deep run. They are playing better as of late so lets hope that sticks around. 
    • Headed out from the house Sunday morning and put on 50 miles.   Looped south from Cloquet then west and back around.  Trails need snow to say the least.  Not another sled on the trails so that was nice but had to keep an eye out for rocks/sticks. Also had 3 turkeys run across the trail right in front of me, I had design's on the last one, but braked at the last minute.  I had visions of fresh turkey in the smoker LOL. With another warm up late this week and no snow, not sure if they will be rideable next weekend or not til we get more white stuff.  Felt good to get a few miles on anyway.
    •   I’ve only heard about the FB banter being obnoxious but haven’t seen it cuz truly, I stay away from FB completely.  My wife fills me in.   What that stuff sounds like is some of the stuff that got moderated out of this/these forums.  That was the intent anyway.  Yes, there were cases of over moderation but honestly, forums in general were just getting popular and it was a learning curve for both posters and site Admins.  I think things are more relaxed now.   I used to think using screen names rather than real names let the keyboard cowboys feel more reckless but maybe not?  Just crazy how some people have NO manners in public.   I’m still hanging in here and hoping activity keeps improving.  I’ve checked out other sites besides FB and still come back here. It’s my home forum.  And it will as long as people are interested in helping others.  You get what you give.  That’s just a constant in life.
