      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 .

Wii questions

Recommended Posts

We have not purchased any type of gaming system for our kids, but now they are wanting a Wii Fit for Christmas. They have played their cousin's Wii, so they have been exposed to it a little. By the way - three girls ages 18,16, and 14.

Do you think it would be worth it, or just a phase they might get over? Is it even possible to find one anywhere now?

Some opinions would be great.

We got ours for Christmas and I still enjoy a little Guitar Hero, Mario Cart, and a little bowling here and there. My boys (there 6) would play it 24/7 if we would let them! The wife was hinting about the Wii fit the other day and my response was how will it look next to the towel rack A.K.A the treadmill! grin

The wii fit is fun and I have known folks that used it religously and lost weight. It does make it fun. I would suggest getting Mario Cart as well as it's a blast to play. If you google Biddy Boo's they are in stock.

Thanks for a tip on where to find one, Sandmannd.

I have one daughter who used a Wii Fit as part of her physical therapy. She had a stress fracture in her lower tibia a year ago that hasn't fully healed yet. They had her doing the downhill skiing and balancing stuff on her weak leg. She said it would probably be good for my daughter and hubby who both have MS. They need to keep up with balancing stuff since they are both weak on the left side. That is the main reason they are asking for the Wii Fit.

You might be able to actually find a system, lucky, but can be done. Wii Fit on the other hand has been pretty tough to find, so if you see it, grab it.

Same thing for me, I wont go into details but I had some medical problems over the summer that required extensive physical therapy. My therapist suggested wii fit for me to work at home with. I laughed at first, but now that I have actually tried it myself I use it everyday as part of my rehab. Its mostly for the balance and fine motor skills, but I can work for an hour on there and just be dripping in sweat. It has definately help aid in my recovery but also been very fun at the same time.

It has been harder to convince hubby to go ahead and get one than I thought it would. He is so anti-video game anything that he can't see how this is different. We'll see what happens.

Woo Hoo! Got the green light. However, the girls are not going to receive this gift on Christmas Eve when we will be opening our other gifts. They will wake up to more gifts under the tree on Christmas morning. That was hubby's stipulation. grin

Now, hopefully I can still find what I need.

I haven't tried Wii Fit but I'm guessing it's got nothing on DDR in terms of calorie burning. A boss song on expert will require more effort on your part than jogging a mile and a half, and the songs are all of 100 seconds long. Then again that requires that you work at it enough to get to a difficult level. A 7 footer is a walk in the park, an 8 footer will make a good warmup, a 9 footer will definitely take it's toll on you, and a 10 footer will have your legs burning.

    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy.
