      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 .

There's no way I'll attempt that lip ripper! I am going to try a fancier 2D. bae501 I thought about trying the HSO logo, after seeing the yours I might revive that thought.

My six year olds did theres almost all by themselves this year. I'll get them posted eventually.

Here's one I just finished tonight. After I was done carving, couldn't figure out what the heck I just did.

A little different lighting and things change.

Total dark. A little fuzzy trying to hold the camera steady.

HuntFish all carvings were done on regular pumpkins. Tough ones about a 3 hour ordeal. Wifey's doing a real detailed one now, she's going on hour #4.

wow, those are great. I'm lucky to get just the plane old round eyes, triangle nose, and crooked mouth.

Great Job

What do you guys use to carve away the outside like that?

I'm pretty good with the knife and have done stuff similar to Lip Ripper but I haven't tried carving on the outside yet. It gives it some added depth which is pretty cool.

I used a razor blade and a small filet knife. You first cut the image outline, then just cut the outter skin off a small bit at a time. An Exacto knife would be ideal. Hope this helps.

Here are my six year olds pumpkins. They pretty much did them themselves this year so they are pretty proud!
