      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 .

Wii Game Alert

Recommended Posts

Hey Gang,

Just got Party Games 2 which includes beanbags, darts, lawn darts, shuffleboard bowling etc and it is a clunker. There are not any of the 11 games included that are worth a dang playing. I wasted $30 bucks on this dud and I am going to try to take it back to Super Wal Mart, not sure what their policy is on returning games but this one is a dud. DO NOT WASTE YOUR DOLLARS!

My wife and I bought this game awhile back and we enjoy it when playing with friends. My daughter likes the puck bowling and playing the horseshoes.

I have wasted $30 on other stuff far worse than this game.

Hate to say it, but I doubt they will take it back. I believe for games/music/software, you can only exchange it for the same thing if it is defective. This is due to copyright law and is the same everywhere. So unless you get lucky with a customer service rep who doesn't know what they are doing, I think you are out of luck.

Not trying to be the bearer of bad news, just giving a heads up.

Keep your receipt, exchange it for a wrapped one, then try to return that one. At the least, you should be able to get store credit for the wrapped one.

Thought about that once and they said they have to open the package so you can't do that.

"Wii game alert" I got an alert for you...the whole Wii system blows. Had I known when I purchased the system that they would only make hannah montana type games I would have never wasted my money on one. Needless to say Nintendo will never get me to buy another one of their systems.

We get some cheap laughs out of it. I don't think its as bad a game as you think, but the games themselves are pretty weak and you wanted to play those games if you bought it.

As far as the system in general goes, it is a soft and cuddly game system that pleases pretty much everyone under 13 and over 35. If you are between those ages, an XBOX or PS3 is probably more your style, if not a PC. Of course, there are going to be exceptions, but I introduced it to my parents, and they got a real kick out of it. My wife's parents are probably going to get one, and I hear of more and more 50s+ household getting them for themselves. I don't see XBOX and PS3 getting into those deep pockets.

I think I got lucky and found a clerk who is going to let me swap for another game! Looking to get Mario Cart, any reviews on that one gang? I kind of like the Wii system because it is simple, I am a dinosaur and can't handle 27 buttons joysticks and levers going at once! LOL And I disagree on the wii sports bowling, I think it is very realistic, other games are a bit simple but that Party Games was just too simple, could not control the direction of things much and it was just not much fun. I am 50 years old so the wii system is perfect for playing games with the grand kids and our children who are in their late 20's. We do also have Playstation 2 but I can only handle simple games on that system! LOL Thanks for all the input.

I like our Wii because it is easy for the kids to play. When he plays hockey you don't have to hit 3 buttons at the same time to shoot, you just shoot with the remote...same goes for the action games.

Mario Cart is the bomb, love that game. I think the wii is more suited for a family game. If you buy it as a serious gamer, you aren't going to like it. But as a bonding tool with the family or just to have a great time with the kids, it's awesome.

mario cart is good. try playing it online with the japanese guys, man can they drive ! haha.

There is a "playground" game that has a bunch of different games on it kind of sounds like what you described, this one has DODGEBALL on it, and that game is alot of fun with 4 players. like fish with teeth said, have a few beers, or my personal favorite "capn" and its a hoot!

Good News Bad News Report

I did get Wal Mart to issue me a store credit on the Party Games 2, bad news was that they are out of Mario Kart right now so I have to wait. It did take some pressure but pressure is my middle name, I have been a top caliber salesman for about 30 years and know my way around the hard rules vs the rules, they caved in, took a little name dropping (friends of the mayor of our town) and the fact that the store just opened I think they did not want the bad pub. I mean, we are only talking 30 bucks here! LOL

We like our Wii alot, myself(42) wife(37), daughters all 4 20-9 years of age all play anything from Archery to Bowling to Cabelas Big Game Hunting, and Boxing (which is 1 heck of a work out) to my favorite, Guitar Hero, (we have 4 different dics of that version). I had the others, depends what you are looking for, this one suits me and our family perfect.

    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
