      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 .

I think the artillery strike lasts too long and is a little over powered, and the attack dogs can be irritating. I like it more now that I picked up some different sights for some guns making them similar to the red dot in COD4.

I'm not really sure if I like the game mostly because it's a new game or if it's actually a good game. I think it's a little of both.

True on Artillery......That and it seems the Mp40 is also pretty overpowered.....and grenades do JACK.

I think so, at least with GAmestop. Or like said before if you have an old charlieoscardelta login they then send you the VIP deal for your token.

It's a beta, the point is to find them. The final release will play a lot better (hopefully). Halo 3's beta made the warthogs on Valhalla absolutely unstoppable, and my K/D was easily over 5 (it's a little over 2 right now, not that I play much anymore). Very few beta's are used as the final build.

Any initial thoughts? Once the glitches/gameplay is "Beta'd", will it be a keeper?

Is it worth pre-ordering to get access to the beta?

Yea, well I know what a beta is and what it is meant for. but what i meant is that a person will find them and continue to use them, and that is where it gets annoying.

Is it worth playing a beta? Not really. You only get 3 maps and they get old fast. It is glitchy and easy to take advantage of (you can switch from a tanks main cannon to the turret instantly, so you can fire the cannon, then operate the turret until the cannon's cooldown is up). Those sorts of things. It plays like a CoD 3/CoD 4 hybrid. Moreso like 3, just incorporating a few things from 4.

Never did get a token code.

But I was able to find an Australian COD site that had codes and was able to snag one last night. Hopefully it works.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with this Beta. A lot of the same as 4 with some added elements. It would be fun to allow access to all weapons for the Beta purpose to see what they are all like. A ranking system for a Beta doesn’t make much sense, unless they are actually testing the ranking system itself.

It’s currently capped at level 44. Seems like it would make more sense to open it up to work out any issues with overpowered weapons.

I’ll be buying the full version for sure.

I must admit I like the randomness of the dogs and they seem fairly balanced. They are pretty easy to kill or hide in the water wink

Played a little “War” yesterday, a good concept, but mostly turned into a contest of who could get the most Artillery and Dog attacks

Over all though, I think the developers have done well.

War has been around since at least CoD 2, and really was the best gametype, but somehow it was forgotten in 4.

    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
