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!

    Is James the only one who gets to use an avatar (that pic next to his signature)? I go to user CP/edit avatar, but I can't see any way to upload an image.

    I've always thought Avatars were fun. If you go to User CP, then click on edit Avatar, there is an "upload from computer" button. I remember that the image had to be pretty small, so I cut it down a couple times before it fit.

    Can't wait to see it.

          You need to turn the Avatar option on for the forum and the "custom Avatar" one on as well in order for people to upload their own. It's got to be 100x100 pixels or smaller.

            Try it now

            Deeeeeep in the inner working of vBulletin, there is a configuration panel that I just set to enable custom Avators. It's interesting to note that the fastest way to learn where the panel is located was to make a posting in the vBulletin Forum. Sounds familar. It should work now, so let me know.

            I am looking forward to seeing a wonderful display of tiny pizza oven signature lines.
