      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 .

MLB Needs a Few Rule Changes

Recommended Posts

For starters, the fact if the White Sux win tomorrow, they will host the Twins on tuesday. The Twins have the better head to head record, and the game should be here, it should be up to their records head to head, not a coin flip.

And another one I am not too crazy about- the WS home field advantage goes to the League winners of the All-Star game. What a joke. What if, and only an example here- a Wild Card team, say from the AL goes to the World Series. They have posted a record like 86-76. The AL has won the All-Star game. So the AL team with a record barely over 500 gets homefield over an NL team with say a 100-62 record. The homefield in the WS should go to the team with the better record. If they are tied, then homefield should be based on each teams interleague records. I can almost gurantee alot of the braindead rules in the MLs are the brainchilds of Bud Selig, a person that should have never been put into the commissioners office to begin with since he owned a team, giving him a huge prejuidice.

Sorry, had to vent, esp if the Twins have to go to Chicago, I am just not happy about that situation at all

The allstar game means something then, right?

Detroit will laydown for the sox. (Detroit just fired pitching coach and bullpen). Guys just want the offseason to start.

I agree that the game should be played in Minnesota since we won the season series.

I disagree on both counts.... grin

It's just common sense you have to have time to Schedule these playoff games you can't wait until the last game of season and then just decide to a play a game the next day with 40,000 people attending along with the several hundred employee's and City workers needed to pull this off. It's not a little league game folks! I do wish the coin flip was recorded live with witness's, I do not believe Boston won all 3 of their coin flips.

Good rule with not many other options available.

Having the All Star Game determine the home feild in the World Series is one of the best things baseball has ever done they turned a meaningless game into something that matters... I can't think of a better way to determine the home Field then to have the best players from each league determine it on the feild... Great Rule

I certainly wouldn't want a weaker team from the National League with a few more wins then a much better team from the American League to have Home Field because they play in a weaker Division and league. That makes no sense to me!

I'm glad they didn't use the all star game results to determine home field advantage in 1987, but now that they use it, it seems to give the all star game a little more meaning.

    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks? 
    • Sorry, but his 60 some RBI for someone who's hitting over .300 is exceptionally low.  Especially for the number of games he's played.
    • @MJ1657 That was good for a chuckle over breakfast.  I heard you might've had a less than flawless day yourself. 
    • Sounds good to me! Maybe blanch quick then into ice water like tomato's to get that skin off first....
    • I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!
    • Weather was perfect up here! cloudy, drizzly, 55 degrees. we shot quite a few ducks, geese. The first hour was solid. Lots of birds around, but then as usual it died down. I was surprised at the amount of hunters out there on this WPA considering it was a 1/2 mile hike to get to it.  Left at 9:00 when my son got cold. Will be looking at getting a game cart to haul all the gear back and forth. Maybe try it again next weekend before I get serious on bow hunting......
    • My son and I got 9. Should have had our limit. Lot of teal zipping around! Lot of mosquitos too!!
    • Remi suddenly heard the word "BUG"...........
    • Lol, naw we got stung enough last weekend from a ground hive.... we're inside!!
