FB Moderators - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

    I noticed DMum was a moderator a little while back, now I notice Ken.

    When did you guys become moderators? I must have missed that and wondered who else moderates now...??? Also, I assume you moderate specific areas or posts, is that right??

    Nice to see the forum expanding and James getting a break!

    Re: FB Moderators

    I'm a moderator, but other than having a couple of "flag" icons on each message,

    I don't notice any difference. I've not been asked by James, or anyone else, to monitor the site for abusive posts.

      Somewhere there's an old thread (last fall maybe?) talking about all the spam that was appearing at the time, and the need for more eyes on the postings. I believe Ken and some others volunteered and were made moderators.

        Re: FB Moderators

        Hi guys,

        I added Ken and DMUN as moderators a while back, but so far the newest software makes it easy to catch and delete spam and spammers. They don't even appear on the forum. For now, technology is keeping us one step ahead. :-)

        Still, new members' first posting is now moderated, and they have to be approved before they are public -- so when I will be away for a longer period of time, I will be asking for help from our moderators.

        Thanks for asking.

          True, I hardly have noticed the spammers anymore
          that used to be more of a problem.

          Sounds like you catch them when they try to sign up (in chinese?)

            I think you are all doing a wonderful job. The spam seems to be completely eliminated. This site is truly an inspiration where the whole world with a common theme can come together. It makes me want to travel the world just to look at wood fired ovens and the meet all the really cool people who make it happen. Yet, I can surf from this back corner at the end of the road. I will post some more pics but its always a challenge for me
