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!
You have to push the report button top of page, looks like to report spam....
Yes....I've already reported a couple Spam posts that way, haven't seen action yet. I thought this would get more attention each time it comes up as a new post. These spammers are pretty sophisticated nowadays. FB.com seems pretty liberal in their acceptance of commercial type signatures and Links -I'm not saying that is a bad thing - I enjoyed your two sites.
Don't want to become known as a PITA member. I've had a post or two trolled here, but I held my tongue. I own my own flegling message board and have served as moderator on a large and busy car board for many years. Troublemakers....Well, suffice it to say that I don't want to be seen as one, I'm still low on this WFO learning curve.

If you are thinking about building a brick oven, my advice is Here.
Our One Meter Pompeii Oven album is here.
An album showing our Thermal Breaks is Here.
I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.
Actually, with all the flexibility we have on this site, I think itís pretty clean. We can do multiple post, upload pictures, embed pictures, post links, etcÖ Anybody thatís intent on punching through, will be able to do so. Iíve been to a few sites that were so limited that it wasnít worth participating (but spam free). There are a couple of moderators and they do a damn fine job.

Quite so. That is why vbulletin provides the flag to report posts and call for attention of Admin right away. Sometimes the notification setup is incorrect in the backbone of the software and Admin doesn't get the word, hence, this way a moderator can take care of it: One click clean and ban is available for vbulletin 3.x.x.
My best to you Les
ADDED: One thing I noticed about fornobravo.com is there are no banners or columns of advertisments....none, save for the stickies. A clean unencumbered site: Good for easy access by the members. I've never seen a site with this many members that wasn't full of advertising and Google ads. A very good thing!
