      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 .

Applications: Individual vs. Group

Recommended Posts

Myself and one, possibly two others will be submitting our spring applications. Most likely we'll all be hunting together, but sometimes it may just be me or me and one other.

Should we apply as a group? Is there any "advantages" in a group application? OR... should we all just apply as indivuals?

Signed...

Confused by the regs again!! laugh (aka: MooseHunter)

If you all want to hunt at the same time you could do the group deal.One gets drawn you all get a tag.The DNR will go by the lower preference points so if you have one or two points and there is a person in the group with zero that will hurt your chances they will go by the lowest of the groups points.If you are hunting with someone that is more experienced I might do the group permit over the indivdual just so you have that person with you on the hunt.

You may want to consider each putting in for a different time period as well. This way if a few of you draw you'll be able to hunt longer than 5 days and tag-team if you will. One guy can film for the other the fist period than switch it up for 2nd time period. All depends on your preference points though. Where I hunt, I only get drawn every third year so I'd rather have one guy get drawn one year and I the next and be able to assist/hunt both years. The law was finally changed that you can now assist another hunter, take advantage of it!

It depends on your goals for the hunt. If you all want to hunt together on the same trip, then you should sign up as a group or you risk someone not getting a tag. Applying as a group can be dangerous because it is an all or nothing draw, but if you do get drawn then you know you will all have tags.

There is no advantage or disadvantage to using a group or individual. If you apply as a group your preference is that of the person with the lowest preference number so if some of you have pref points than you may want to apply separate.
