BOTM April 08 Nominations - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community

Announcement

Collapse

Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.


To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • BOTM April 08 Nominations

    I can't believe I'm writing this. It's April. Spring for all of us in the northern half of our lovely plantet; sorry about that FB NZ.

    Enjoy your ovens and your building. This month I join the world of those with ovens, leaving being the construction phase; it's time to start cooking.

    We're open for April 08 BOTM nominations. I am looking forward to some great YouTube videos!

      I would nominate Robert and his wife for one fine sauce recipe!

      But I have to nominate him again(is that allowed) for a great build!

      And George too!

      Excellent work from both.

      And RC...excellent work as well

      Gosh it is so hard to decide!

          James,

          Just in case this got lost, I'll add it here:

          "While we're on the voting topic, and now that it's April, I'd like to nominate Xabia Jim this month for his non-stop photos of everything from chimneys and street parties to finished WFO meals and historic ovens."

          That would be a well deserved win, but I want a cut.

            I'll second that nomination. If XJ wins, we should make him stay in Javea year round. None of this Here and There -- we want him there. :-)

              I will have the recipe posted ASAP. It is a recipe meant for Spaghetti, but I will ask her to reveal it as a pizza sauce. Ohhh, it was a huge hit.
              An excellent pizza is shared with the ones you love!

                I will third the XJ nomination, the man is well traveled, well schooled, and it is a joy reading and viewing his thoughts and photos on so many topics......so much more to the WFO culture than just pizza...........THANKS XJ

                  OK, I'll agree XJ deserves the nom. Awesome pics and interesting posts. I really enjoy discussions with him.

                  As an alternative and just to make the poll more contentious, I'll nominate dmun's posts and diagrams regarding butressing an oven. Certainly a great lesson in the stresses on a dome and how to conteract them. I've implied, and probably stated outright before, that David is probably teaching somewhere, and if not, should be. Most certainly, he's giving us daily lessons on almost every topic. That's my nomination (though not my vote, at this point anyway. I'm still trying to get a idea in my head to get my name on that list again)

                    Damn good points George. I think David is very much like CJ, taken for granted at times...you simply know they will respond with a logical and helpful answer or explanation to whatever the topic may be. Glad CJ eaked out the win.
                    Can I cast 2 votes this month? Maybe 1/2 a vote XJ, 1/2 a vote Dmun?
                    whoever loses gets my nom. next month. Course if neither wins we can start this discussion all over again....these guys could be nominated every month.

                      George, I've got your back....although it will add to my own confusion and personal strife (who do I vote for???). I had to go back and look at your oven pics (sorry, I got caught up in that whole "pink" thing, forgetting about a couple of GREAT details).....two things I very much liked - your polished concrete and those VERY COOL curved storage doors.
                      Can somebody give GJBingham a "second" on his cool, stylish, and innovative curved storage area doors?

                        Re: BOTM April 08 Nominations

                        This may be a bit contentious but I would just like to put my thoughts on re-nomination the following month. Since the voting is limited to 5 persons re-nomination will deprive someone of a place that probably equally deserves the recognition. As in this case we already have 3 of the 5 from last month suggested as nominees. XJim and Dmun are certainly more than worthy of a place on the list. Game over!

                        Given that we are currently talking about 29 votes last month if the members who supported those persons vote in the same way then it is not really a subjective poll. With CJim's input to the forum on building and breadmaking and the fact that he is an all-round good guy there is no reason why he should not be on the list again for a different reason regardless of the fact that he won last month. What I am trying to suggest is that in the interest of the BOTM polls James should introduce a rule that renomination the following month should not be an option. I am certainly not saying that a person should not be nominated twice just the next month.

                        Has anyone else any thoughts on this?

                            I nominate Steve (Kemo) for his outstanding oven, enclosure, pizza cooking skills, and his well documented thread.

                              Well, I have been nominated several times, but keep coming up short. I now present the sauce that has been a huge hit for pizza.
