      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 .

The "bench" is the same as last year. Last year you had 2 in A and only one of those could earn race points (that was the active driver that had the check next to his name) the other driver (bench) was available if the active driver qualified poorly.

Its just like last year. You choose two guys from all the drivers in the A list before the driver change deadline. After the deadline you can only choose between the two drivers you had selected to earn points for the race based on how they qualify or who you think will do better.

From Yahoo Rules;

"The deadline for picking new drivers for the upcoming race is 2:00 a.m. PT on the morning of qualifying.

The deadline to change the status of a driver on your team from reserve to active is five minutes before the scheduled start of each race (view the complete schedule).

Please note that the scheduled race time usually differs from the actual start time of the race. Rosters are locked based on the time displayed on the Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Racing schedule."

You have an A, B, and C list of drivers. You select two drivers from the A list, Four drivers from the B list, and 2 Drivers from the C list. You have until "2:00 a.m. PT on the morning of qualifying" to pick your drivers from all the drivers listed in each group.

After qualifying you can only change the 2 drivers you selected the A list, 4 drivers in the B list, 2 drivers in the C list from active to inactive. only 1 driver each in the A and C list and 2 drivers in the B list can be active drivers. These drivers are the only ones that will earn race points. The inactive or "bench" drivers selected in each group will only earn qualifying points. You have until 5 minutes before the start of the race to make changes to these drivers. Only the active drivers count towards the nine race maximum that is allowed for each driver. After nine races the driver can no longer earn any qualifying or race points.
