Save your messages BEFORE you lose them! - 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!

  • Save your messages BEFORE you lose them!

    (M) I have started to reply to several messages and then had to leave that composition window to re-read another message or check spelling only to find my message was no longer there when I returned.

    (M) If you are writing more than a one liner, consider Copy-Pasting your message to your regular email or a word processing program before you move to any other window so if you lose it you can always Copy-Paste it back if necessary. This seems to be a failing of many forums so it may come with the territory.

    message errors

    This may be a good idea, if only to have access to a spell-checker for your post. As an alternative, if you want to, say, look for something on the web to refer to in your post, you can choose "open new window" in the file menu of your browser, and your original window will sit there, inactive, until you are ready to go back to it.

      In Firefox you can simply open a new tag and browse from there. But the C&P idea is also a good one for long posts - nothing worse than going to enter and finding that you've been logged out - and just lost the entire post.

        IE 7.0 also offers Tab functionality similar to Firefox btw.

            (M) Remember to eat everything on your plate or you get no dessert.

            (M) btw, you do NOT want to be me.
