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!

      We had a lot of problems with Spammers. I think this policy has been very helpful in cutting down the spam. Once you get above some minimum number of posts, this restriction goes away.

        I admit, I was suspicious of this when I first joined, but honestly, you only have to post a few times to be verified as a "human" (as opposed to a spammer-bot). From then on, this forum is absolutely amazing.

            He was a bit impatient. As a free lance software developer (on the side, it's not my bread and butter) I'm always very frustrated when users offer up a complaint as their explanation for running, then disappear too quickly for me to address their concern. If they would simply communicate their concern to me or ask for help, I could frequently explain the situation to them, or even help them find a way around the problem.

            It's extremely vexing when people refuse to ask for help and one is pleadingly willing to offer it.

              Let's pause for a moment of appreciation for James and this forum. Despite the fact that he is in the business of selling modular ovens, he pays for, and does most of the work of, maintaining a forum for amateur builders. It is, for the most part, a haven of helpfulness and civility in an internet that is not noted for these qualities.

              A couple of us have the word "moderator" in our headings, mostly by virtue of being frequent posters. We, for the most part, do not moderate. James does all the work. I for one, appreciate it.

              And Millie T. Cook? If you have useful things to bring to the forum, or legitimate questions, we'll miss you. If not, well, have a nice life.

                  Hi guys,

                  Just a quick note on this. We try to moderate the forum once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Weekends aren't as consistent.

                  I also have to say that we really do delete scores of spam postings every day, and that it just keeps getting worse -- and that we are continually installing all of the spam blocking software we can find.

                  So new posters, you have to bear with us a little for just the first posting. It's easy after that!

                    Thank you very much, both for providing the forum and for killing the spam.

                      I managed to figure it out and want to add my appreciation as well. Can't imagine if I had to wade through spam or discouraging words.
