      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 .

Question For Youth Mentors

Recommended Posts

I am considering being a mentor this spring for the youth season.

Do I have any say as to who I would like to take? Or does the youth still have to go through the lottery system? If the kid IS drawn, then do I have a say as to weather I can take him? Or is it all random draw?

Lets hear it from those of you who have gone through this before.

I mentored one year. The way it was set up is the organizers paired us up with the kids. We weren't able to pick and choose. Which in a way, it would have maybe been more beneficial if we could. There was one boy who lived 15 minutes from the area I hunt but was paired with a boy from the metro area instead.

It created more travel for the parties involved.

But overall, it was a great experience. Definitely one of the best times I've had out in the woods other than going out with my own sons.

To see the expression on their face after the whole experience of calling, the birds fighting, responding to the calls is a blast. The kids just love to see nature at it's finest.

I think there may be a little bit of choice in the new way, but it might be up to the coordinator of that area. My sister did the youth hunt last year and they made sure to place her with a female mentor so she would be more comfortable.

I'm not sure how much choice they had in the matter, but I know they made it work for us.
