      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 .

Madden 09

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been playing Madden 09? I just got it and am having problems trying to get online. Their forums aren't much help either. I guess I will keep trying.

Did you try reseting your connection? That used to fix my problems when i played online games. Not much for Madden anymore, just seemed like after awhile if you had played one you had played them all.

I bought the PS2 version. I wanted the PC version, but they aren't making that now for some reason. You are right about saying they are all the same, I just wanted the current lineup of players. Anyway, I tried everything I can think of to get online. The weird thing is I cant even get online with my nascar game now either. I can run a connection test and that comes out fine, it just cant connect with their server to get it setup.

All sports games, madden, tiger woods etc are the same from year to year, each year they may change something small but usually its some upgrade from the year before

I heard (friend has it) that the new Madden 09 went back to it's roots. Like that past couple years you could be a blocker or have QB vision or the trainer taping ankles. My buddy told me all that's gone. It's like the way it was, but the graphics are insane. (PS3)

Sorry bout your on-line issue.

I have realized playing Madden online is a great way to embarrass myself. I suck, and there is some great players on there. I hadn't played Madden since 1999, on the original Playstation, so it had been awhile

I really wouldn’t judge your video game ability by playing against someone online. There are some real freaks out there when it comes to some games. I'm sure they are sitting there as I type this, Zombie eyed, trying to find a loophole or glitch to beat you.

I haven’t even looked or tried, but I bet a guy could look on You Tube right now and there is some sort of Madden Glitch Video.

That’s why I tend to only play with people on my friends list.

Ok i got a question about this. Why is it so hard to get sacks as a DE? I can't seem to break my DEs off the blocks.

Anyone?

I think I found out why I can't get online. I think my network connection configuration on my memory card is corrupt. It wont even let me delete it to make a new one. I hope if I get a new memory card, it will work.

    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?
