      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 .

Yep, way too busy. I just spent the last couple hours going thru the rest of my shots from Yesterday. When you have dozens that you like, it's tough deciding which ones to keep. If nothing else, it makes a person much more particlular with his shots. After awhile, you learn to pick out minute differences in similar shots. It was an enjoyable shoot, but I've had enough of whoopers for awhile.

I just discovered that when I upload to Flickr and then add a frame in Flickr, and then resave it 800 X ***, I lose a little sharpness. I think I'll skip the frame in the future or find one elsewhere and frame the photo before uploading.

At least after this last batch, I can delete most of the others that show the leg bands. grin

Mike those are noticably sharper! I would ditch the frames as well, they were showing some pixelation. These look tack sharp.

In the future, if my shots don't look real sharp, please let me know. I can't fix something if I'm not aware that it's broke. wink You won't hurt my feelings. I never mind constructive criticism. I thought the problem was my new laptop. I process them on my desktop, but use my laptop for everything else. I assumed the monitor on my laptop was that bad.

I don't have any feelings. grin But yeah, I understand. In the future, do not worry about my feelings. This goes for you and Dan and any other experienced photographer on this forum.

I'll let you know when I've had enough. wink

Well in that case......

Just kidding X! These shots are really great. Glad you got that figured out. To tell you the truth, I didn't notice anything that was terrible but I don't always notice sharpness in someone elses work unless it really stands out either way.

Thanks for sharing these Whoopers. They have been fun to see. I saw a program on PBS last year about them in Wisconsin and they were very interesting.

    • No Rule was made Dave, just asked for some decency from others.  Forgot who we were asking though.
    • We TOLD ya!!!  nya nya!!!      Good luck!!  Now go follow my recipe!! best pickled beets around!
    • I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments!  
    • Who was looking for .22 shorts on here??? Someone was......Bobby Bass?
    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights. PM me if interested. 6 boxes 20 gauge Federal 2 3/4" duck/pheasant shells, 5 boxes are #6 shot, 1 box #4 shot 9 50 round boxes .22 short plus 3 partial boxes 9 50 round boxes  .22 long (not long rifle) plus 1 partial box 44 rounds .38 special lead, plus 43 rounds .38 special lead hollow point
    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
