      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 .

FREE Legos

Recommended Posts

I have a 35 gallons bin full of Legos, mostly Lego brand but some others.

It's been sitting in my barn for a couple of years and it's covered and full of dust but if you just dump everything in a tub and rinse it there's at least $ 1000 worth of them.

It will keep your child busy for years.

Free for the taker, I can leave it by the mailbox but cannot be on Wednesdays or Waste Management will pick it up shocked

To whom ever picked up the Lego's this am early. It would have been very considerate of you to have posted that you were going to pick them up. I posted I was going to drive there this am as I did and they were already gone. Coach was second in line and called me to see if he could have some and I told him I would leave half of them for him for a homeless shelter. Typically one will post that they are interested and then it usually goes by whomever posted first.

I guess the 100 miles I drove was at least a nice morning drive.

Ouch Tom, that was a heck of a drive for nothing. I wonder is it wasn't an FM'er and just someone driving by that took them. I doubt we'll ever know for sure though.

One needed to drive into the yard to get them as Valv had posted. I would guess that someone saw it posted here as they needed to know where they were.

Like I said, it was a nice morning for a drive.

I only posted this to try and let all the others know that when someone speaks for them first that another should not go there without posting as others have taken time out of their day and drive there to find nothing.

Are you sure it was someone from FM? Sounds real low for someone in here. confused

Sorry to hear that Tom. Did you find any other things you couldnt do without while you were there?

Besides arent you a bit old to be playing with Legos still? wink

No, I don't know for sure but since the post was made here, one could assume.

To old to play games, not me. The Lego's were for a kinda poor family I know in town and the others were going to a homeless shelter for women and kids.

No one was home so no shopping was done.

Might not have been a memeber, there are a lot of lurkers on here. I would like to believe we are better than that. But every family has it's bad eggs I guess. Big this is that Tom and Coach meant well and hearts were in the right place. Sad someone stepped in and took these away from needy folks.

I am sorry, to ask, but how did the person who got them, know where to go. No directions were given here. Could it have been a drive by in Lonsdale.

Just asking. Sorry for incident. Very Good Intentions

It may have been a lurker. If they knew where valv lived and read the post that they would be by the garbage cans then it would not have been very hard. I don't know that it was a person viewing FM, but it would appear that way unless these items were posted elsewhere.

Doesn't matter that much, I just wanted to let others know that the way the forum works is that people respond that are interested so this does not happen all the time and many drive there for nothing.

I think it would be jumping to conclusions to assume it was someone on FM. My guess is just someone driving by. It is kind of a unwritten rule in the scavenger business that something left by the road/curb is free for the taking. I have gotten rid of stuff like this before. Of course I put FREE on it but I am sure it would have gone anyway if I hadn't. Next to garage or something is a much safer bet.

WHOAA everybody !!! Nobody took anything.

I am on my way back from South Carolina and Legos haven't been put outside since I couldn't login to FM to check the replies. I apologize to everybody.

Tom, they are yours, and I will refund gas money you spent. I really, apologize for this.
