      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 .

Could Be Worse-

Recommended Posts

We all could be Chargers fans. I will tell you what, if I were a Chargers fan or player or coach even for that matter, and they miss the playoffs by one game, I would cut all ties with the NFL. That Cutler "fumble" was the worst call I have ever seen. 10Xs worse than Bradys against the Raiders.

Instead of an "itchy trigger finger", the refs had an "itchy whistle". The play was blown dead thinking it was an incomplete pass. A pre-mature whistle IMO. Refs should let these plays continue and if questionable, let it be reviewed by either a challenge or by the booth if under 2 minutes remaining in the half/game.

DTRO was right, earlier a WR (can't remember who) made a catch, went down with the ball and a safety took the ball out his hands and took off running, and they let that one go as well.

It's called an inadvertent whistle the play stops at that point.

The referee thought it was an in complete pass it happens they make mistakes.

I doubt they will change the rule to let players continue to play after the WHISTLE BLOWS!...LOL

The earlier call the replay equipment was not working.

Get over it!.... grin

Big deal the referee thought it was an in complete pass it happens they make mistakes. Play better football and all is well.

Dang....I was never under it smile

As far as the last “oops” whistle. Yes of course they make mistakes, but they need to learn not to blow the whistle so dang fast. Especially within that 2 minute window in a tight game. Contrary to what people think, no matter how good you play, the officials can still make a huge difference in the outcome of a game.

Of course it impacted the game and it may or probably did cost them the game.

My get over it remark was more out of laughter over the "cut all ties with the NFL" part of the post it's just a game and one bad call... grin

And the "play better" comment was directed toward maybe stopping them on 4th and goal from the 8yd and the 2 point conversion "SWEET CALL" along with the SD receiver keeping his foot in-bounds in order to kick the winning FG!

    • 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? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
