      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 .

Stolen photos

Recommended Posts

Here's a link to an online photo gallery that contains many stolen photos. The photos stolen are mostly bird and animal images, and I know several of you on this board have your own Web sites or online galleries.

In the cases of the stolen photos, the person has cropped to trim off the copyright symbols and photographers' names.

You can comment on each photo, and there's also a button to click when you enter a gallery to report abuse to the gallery hosting site. I know of four other photographers so far whose work has been stolen and who are starting to leave comments and reporting abuse in that gallery.

It's not just the galleries that show birds and animals on the thumbnail for the gallery, but the seasonal galleries also have a lot of nature images.

You might take a gallop through and see if you recognize any of your own work.

Looks like she is reloading photos, hopefully just the ones she took this time.

It'll be interesting to see what goes back up. Assuming everything that gets put back is her own work, then everything that's left off was other people's work. It'd be funny if she doesn't put up any nature photos at all. smile

I know four of the photographers whose images she pirated, and they are talented photogs. All four issued protests to "Myra" and Picasa. I hope one or more actually files a copyright infringement suit. There won't be much money in it, but such lessons need to be taught and learned.

I looked through there and didn't see any of mine, but I wouldn't hesitate to go after somebody who did something that schtoopid.

And the fact that she (if Myra really is even her name) cropped out the photographers' names and copyright symbols was to me plain evidence she knew what she was doing was wrong.

Someone pirated a photo from my Webshots album. The strange thing was the pirated photo was poor, before I knew what I was doing, ( still don't, but have improved since then). I have much better photos out there and could not figure out why a lousy image to be pirated. Must have been sentimental reasons.

I never understood stealing other's photos and claiming as their own. Where's the pride in this?

Is it against the law to have someone elses photograph in a webgallery if you are not using it for monetary gain or anything like that?

Is it against the law to have someone elses photograph in a webgallery if you are not using it for monetary gain or anything like that?

US Copyright Act of 1976, Section 106: " The owner of copyright under this title has the exclusive rights to do and to authorize any of the following: (...) to prepare derivative works based upon the copyrighted work." The U.S. law permits copying of images or text for "criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, or research."

My understanding is posting someone else's images in their own gallery would be a violation of copyright law unless it was used for one of the above purposes. This usually only applies to newspapers using a photo from a gallery in a newspaper article. If you are using a persons photos without permission you can be sued for copyright infrigement. In my eyes that would include an on line gallery.

More importantly posting other's photos in your gallery would normally be a violation of the hosting service itself. That is why it pays to read the terms of service when you sign up. Keep in mind I'm not a lawyer but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night smile

    • Heres a couple pictures we took after my work meeting and waking up the wife.
    • Smurf hope all goes well with the pooch. Definitely tough to see them as they age my 9 year old lab is getting pretty greyfaced. Started looking for another up and comer to start the training process again . 
    • Green lake Spicer if ice is off. The governer's opener this year will be in the Willmar area. 
    • Fibertech productions replica's Brainerd. Have a walleye done by them excellent work!
    • Was wondering if anybody has a fiberglass mount of a Largemouth that they would like to post pics of? It's now been 15 years since I caught my biggest bass (22 1/4"), and I've come to the conclusion that I will probably not top it. So I'm interested in finally putting one up on the wall.   I'm guessing I would probably go with Artistic Anglers, but would love to hear if anybody has any other suggestions. Thanks!
    • Has there been any announcements what the governor will be doing for fishing opener yet? Does he still honor the tradition but head to the southern part of the state?
    • We need warm windy days to get things really going.  I'm guessing the in-laws lake 20 minutes north of Deer River will still have ice floating around on opener.    On this day in 2010 I had already returned from a Bdub canoeing and camping trip. That year and this year seem to be two extremes.  
    • the brown hounddog pictured above went in today to get fixed up!!!!!! wife should be able to pick her up about 3;30 today. sure stunk not being able to feed her this morning. the looks i got ........like what da he!!!!!!!!!
    • the missed call hasnt really bothered me, the wild should have retaliated after that but they seemed just lax about it. too bad they suspended him, just wish I was old enough to watch the playoff atmosphere of the 80's and early 90's. i thought by the end of the 3rd they would have tied it, I think the mix up lines helped change up the momentum, boudreau will need to pull some of this stuff tonight if they seem stale. I agree with Lung, Kiovu has not impressed me this year, his shootouts, his shots on goal just nothing special, just hope tonight they find a spark on the offense as we know those big boys on the Jets will be pushing them around tonight, too bad we dont have some more Folino's
