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!
I notice a ranking of junior members, members, and senior members. Does this have something to do with age? Is there a place on this site that will tell me the criteria for rank? Thanks for any light that can be shed on this.
It's based on your number of postings. The way the titles work is completely configurable, where you can create categories based on various criteria, and even control what different types of users are able to do. In our case, I am still using the default configuration for titles and numbers of postings. At some point, we might want to change it, and add some fun titles.
Thank you very much for taking the time to answer. My curiosity had the best of me.
Our oven, built from your plans, is working far better than we ever imagined it would and now, thanks to Thanksgiving visitors, my daughter and her family want one and I've been volunteered to give them a hand. I'll see to it that she joins your forum, if she hasn't already, and submits progress photos. Building probably won't start until late spring or summer since they live in the Portland, Oregon area.
That warms my heart. I think the whole idea behind the FB oven plans was to help people make ovens so they would entertain friends -- who will want their own. Our community is growing, there are more and more ovens out there, and we are all learning more about cooking and oven management. I learn something new just about every day.
While me 'status" may not change due to number of postings this is the first site I view each day with coffee. Learn somehting new each day.
The breadbaking videos with a 'voice over' sounds like a great idea, continue to work on my skills in heat managemnet, and always look forward to seeing the builder's photos, even though I went with pre-fab
