      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 .

Yep! I was going to mention the same thing. "What is the incentive?" was the question he presented.

There was some other pre-race chatter by the FOX talking heads about competition and I think they know that the sport is lacking the spark it used to have and the popularity is starting to fizzle unless something is done. Exactly what we've been saying here the past couple of months. Booooooring.

DW was talking? Oh yeah, he's the reason I have the TV on mute when I watch a race. He might have been a good driver, but I can't stand listening to him. He can join in any intelligent conversation and cause it to lose 100 IQ points. He makes me feel dumber just watching the race! I can't wait untill ESPN gets the races and won't have him on.

By the way, I do like Larry Mac and Mike Joy, they do a very good job.

I happen to like DW and some of his comments. I would much rather listen to this crew than the guys who broadcast the final third of the season. At least the guys on Fox have experience in the sport, and know what they are talking about.

I was suprised to hear DW's rant. Lately NASCAR has discouraged that kinda talk. I agreed with him!

IMO, the whole crew on Fox is way better than that "other" crew.

The funny thing about his "rant" is it is all true.

Nascar for sometime has missed the bumping and banging. There was a long time when people would go to some race's just to see the big one,the way they have it now with the cot (pos) there is no one willing to take the chance of beating the car up because of fact it will ruin your chance at finishing.

We all talked about the different fines that where handed out a couple of years ago with some of the crew chiefs trying to get around the rules,I can't remeber a car even failing pre or post race inspections the last two years, it is a joke that they want them all to run the same.

Big brother is watching and has a heavy hand the problem is the heavy hand is pushing alot of the fans out the door.

So is big sponsor. Do you want to sign on for a season of sponsorship and your driver gets parked for a week? The "passion" left when the sponsors started calling pretty much all of the shots.

Just one mans opinion.

I've been watchin since the mid 80s when espn starting televising it evey week and nascar started to grow and grow fast

it was RACIN money wasnt such a factor I remember DW callin goeff bodine a little turd 2 weeks later mikey reached and punched lake speed i could go on and on rusty and dale fighten no fines or lose of points back then probably just boosted the rating lol

i think about the time the ole man got killed nascar was peaking

stayed there for a bit but has equalized and ole guys like me will keep watchin cuz thats what we do watch and b----h a bit as does everyone from what i hear and read lol

just dont have the charchacters anymore

harvick kinda mellowed after being threathen in the big truck bush probably leaves so quick cuz he doesnt want to get fined or lose points they say nothing stays the same

but i think alittle of back in the day would be good here

NASCAR started going down hill once they started limiting rear-end gear ratios and everything else. The new car is a tank and can take a beating so thing are out of the driver and crews hands now. Every time things get strung out they call a "debris caution" for a piece of tape on the track instead of letting the race play out.

It used to be fun watching the teams push the limits of their engines and cars. It was fun to see some team trying a new engine/gear combo that turned 10,000RPM only to have it blow up. Now it is like IROC used to be. They are given the same car and drivetrain and the engineering and creativity have been taken away.

That was my most memorable part of that race: The Pit Crew sitting on the wall as (this guy you're referring to) drives by. The front tire guy holds up the lug nut like, "Hey, don't you want this?" laughlaugh
