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!

  • Forum flaky?

    Hey all,

    Just wondering if anyone else has trouble with the forum deciding to mark things as read before you're ready. I usually log in and click "New Posts", then work my way through. Now and then, though, I'll go back to my new posts list and find that everything has been marked as read before I got through it all. I'm still logged in, I didn't click the "mark all as read" link, so I don't know what happened.

    Am I doing something to confuse it, or is vBulletin a little flaky about such things?

    Just curious...

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Ed, I experience the same. Don't know the answer (and have not really looked into it).
    I usually end up going to "quick links" and going to all of that day's posts to get caught up on those I didn't read the first time.
    I'm sure someone has an answer for us.....I don't know if vBulletin is flaky about these things, but I sure am. Just not my specialty...I know just enough to get myself in trouble.

        yep, If I take a look at new posts, look at a few, reboot because I am using you know who instead of a Mac and then come back it assumed that everything that I had up was looked at. My work around is to go through the whole lost of new posts before I do anything else.

        It is not a bug it is a feature.

          The only thing I have noticed is if I leavce the new post area they wont show up as new but they will still show as unread until I actually open them.

            Re: Forum flaky?

            I should clarify:

            It looks like the "new posts" link shows all threads which have new posts since the last time you clicked "mark forums read" OR since the last time you logged in--regardless of whether you've actually read the new posts. Just as in the individual forums, threads with unread posts are in bold.

            What happens to me is that the forum suddenly behaves as though I had clicked the "mark forums read" link. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to connect it to anything I do, so I don't know if it's something I did, or a vBulletin bug. For what it's worth, I'm using Firefox 3.0, although the same thing happened with 2.0.

              Firefox uses an auto reload/refresh feature. This could be your problem but I am no guru. I know that with an older version of firefox I would be making a post and the page would refresh and what I had typed would be gone. I think you can turn it off but you will have to find out how since I dont use FF anymore.
