      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 .

Anybody a part of the fun at Cabelas today (Sunday?)

Recommended Posts

I was working an Ice Event at Cabelas today at the Rogers store. Around Noon, the fire alarm went off. It had happened before when I had worked there in the past and thought nothing of it. About 2 mins later one of the employees starts running though the store yelling for everyone to get out. Quite exciting to say the least with below zero windchills outside at the time.

Turns out they had a water main break, which zapped a bunch of computers, which went up in smoke, which also sent off a few sprinkers I do believe. The main store was un harmed and was back open within a half hour. But a lot of product in the back room was destroyed, and some major clean up will need to happen where the water main broke.

All in all I thought the employees handled a tough situation quite well. Its not a like a school where you practice these types of things.

I was at a parts store a couple weeks ago when an unhappy customer came in and had no sense of humor about his problem. Dude wasn't interested in negotiating or listening to the counter guy. I kept sliding down the counter, looking for a tire iron or some such tool just in case I became collateral.

More amusing was that there was an Orange County bike for that shop on display. I double laffed thinking of how horsecrap OCC acts on TV and how bad some azzclown was fired up about some rotors and shoes.

Cuple yrs ago on nasty cold day w had a fire at the factory. I and every other sane prson got our coat before we went outside. The plant manager was gonna have a coronary because we got our coats. He was such a psycho. Well, here comes the safety coordinator with his coat on. I laughed.

LOL@ Broman - I dont know, but a lot of the employees were thinking the same thing?.. and then do you call it a fire sale or a flood sale?

It was a somewhat tense situation, but as far as I know, not even one small injury. Which is a great thing, and says something for how they handled the situation.

We have been called out to the Cabelas a number of times in the past for fire alarms and a bunch of medicals. They have a fair number of calls each year. I think the most memorable one was when a dude sliced the top of his thumb off using a cross bow in the archery range.

    • 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
    • I have the Cabelas 8'6" telescoping trolling rods in a med action I believe. Been using them for 4-5 years now. They work great for what you are asking. Although I have never caught striper on them, they work well for the walleyes up to 28". I think they collapse down to about 7'. Very reasonably priced.
    •   Is this some of your new Marketing idea's for the site Dave?
    • Snuck out today had one walk by 40 yards no shot ones gobbling at me across swamp making hos way now
    • If the refs call the game tight like they did in game 3, i think we come away with the W.  If they kind of turn a blind eye like they did in Game 4, the series is over.
    • Koivu has been pretty decent and our leading out team with 4 points but ya we just never find that next level. Our patchwork D hasn't been the issue, Stall hasn't produced like we needed him to and Nino, Coyle & Zucker have zero points between them. We needed our "depth" to score and they haven't. Coyle I think has been the best of him but he just isn't a goal scorer, has let numerous golden opportunities slip away. Hopefully the wild surprise tonight, otherwise its on Dubs to pitch a shutout and magically assists on the game winning goal. 
    • Saw that Morrisey is suspended for tonight.  Really too bad they missed the call during the game.  Should've been a 5 min major and a game misconduct.  Really would've changed the entire game IMO.  There are lots of times I wish Boogy was still around.   Staal needs to be checked for a concussion and Koivu needs to be checked into a retirement home.     Seems like we can pull up last years playoff and offseason threads and just ride that until October.  Same story, can't compete with a couple heavy blue liners and can't score.
