      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.

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
    • Sucks to be you, I guess. You really don't know much about BBQ, do you?  
    • Except your thesis is contradicted by the fact that much BBQ doesn't really have much in the way of "strong spices".   
    • I wouldn't call BBQ pork gourmet. It's just finding enough of the right combinations of strong spices and salt to make the poor, tough cuts tolerable to eat. Kinda like the buffalo wings craze. Wings used to be the throwaway parts of a chicken you had to take to get breast meat. Now per pound they are more expensive than any other part of the chicken.    Not a complaint at all as I am pretty addicted to wings and I live pulled pork as well.  Just an observation./opinion. No harm or hurt feelings intended.
