New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

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.

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.

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!

  • 30K postings

    We are coming up on a new milestone with 30K postings. As of this message, we have 29,563 (or so) postings, so we should hit 30K in 4-5 days.

    FB will send a Caputo 5 pack to the winner; but as always, no ballot stuffing. :-) Honest postings only.

    It seems like only a few days ago we were talking about 20K postings.

          Sad, sad Dave. All work and no play makes a dull Jack (or Dave, in this case). I didn't even know I passed you - a sad day in George-land. Comes from having no life! What's new 'bro. Time to finish that oven, huh?
          We'll have this fourm to 40K postings in no time!

            We could start betting on how long it'll take to reach the next 10 K... that should help boost the number of posts.

              How long ago was the 20K posting?

                Early December. We've been averaging roughly 100 postings a day for the past few months, and like just about everything FB, the numbers just keep going up.

                We are tracking to have our first month with 1,000 downloads of the Pompeii Oven eBook. :-) It'll be close.

                    Cool! Bet you're pleased with that!

                    Do you have a graphic showing how much each member posts? (Something like "2% of all registered members account for 98% of all posts"...)

                      I'll bet if I looked I could find it. We have a great "core constituency" that is growing. That's a good thing. There's nothing like building and using an oven to bring more of us hardcore members into the fold.

                        James,
                        If you're the 30,000th poster, do you get a 5-pack of flour?

                          Hohum, never seen this many members logged in at this time of day...

                          And when I wake up tomorrow it'll all be over again with tons of posts going "who was it? Did you see it? I just missed it... It must have been Dave!"

                          Oh well, I cant hang around here all night, and I can't write all 55 (54 now) missing posts mayself (...unless I hang around here all night that is).

                          How about we have the 40 K post at around two in the afternoon European time? ok?

                              Amazing what a bunch of pizza lovers will do for a 5 pack of 00
