      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 .

Whale Wars

Recommended Posts

Has anyone watched this? It looked interesting so I recorded it. I watched it and thought it was garbage. These guys are just vigolaties and I can't believe they get away with what they do. I agree to stop the whalers, but why not just turn them in. Then two of the jokers jumped on a Japanees ship and they called in that they were kidnapped cause they wouldn't let them go. No, you jumped on someones ship after throwing chemical bombs and such on it. Do you think they are going to welcome you?

I watched it and just about threw up. Those goofballs have absolutely no regard for human life. Even their own crew members. While I don't like the idea of whale hunting, there just aren't enough of them, I totally dissagree with their tactics. I checked out Sea Shepherd and they are just a radical animal rights group that has a history of using terrorist like tactics like ramming ships and sabotage. I'm hoping the Japanese send some of their navy down there.

I did the same thing. Watched the first epsiode and was appalled. It's actually rather amusing to me though. The crew seem like complete idiots following blindly because the whales need them. And the fact that they intentionaly jumped on the japanese ship and then wined when they had trouble getting their people back makes me laugh. If I was the Aussie govmt, I'd be [PoorWordUsage]. What a headache they have to deal with having to negotiate with the japanese and running pickup detail with these a-holes. I can't believe that they actually got put on TV. Makes a lot of the reality TV show garbage look good.

I watched it too and I agree....the "captain" is a complete whack-job and it is not hard to see why GreenPeace invited him to leave without the door hitting him in the rump....

Talk about the blind leading the blind! Only surprise was that those responsible for Steve Irwin's estate actually supported this nonesense and allowed his name to be placed on the hull....

Terrible tactics. Place people on a ship and call the media with a story about hostages. You're right that guy in the leader position is a whack job.

I did notice Steve Irwin's name was placed on the ship with tape, and it was starting to come off. Maybe someone else's name is on the ship in the next episode which I will not be watching.

I don't want whales to be killed, especially under the premise of "Research" by the Japanese. I don't think this show will add any people to their cause.

Yea, I like how when he was talking about the two on that boarded the other ship he was saying that you have to be willing to give your life for what you believe in. So why is this nut job not the one boarding the other ships? The people follow him blindly and he's a joke. I really don't know what they were thinking putting this show on the air. I don't condone the whale hunting either, but you don't stop something you don't agree with by terroristic tactics.

They'll turn and run like the cowards they are. Whine to the press and try to get the world on their side. Blame everyone else but themselves and of course take no responsibility for their own actions.
