Welcome board.

What grit of sand would be recommended?

Hey Les... You know in two posts you'll be a senior member right?

What do you get for that - a free pizza? :)

Hey Nick, good to hear from you. How are you doing?

Les, we need to change the member titles, and start offering goodies for reaching new levels.

Something like this:

0-49 postings; Serf -- you work for free, and give us half your crop;
50 postings; Peasant -- you can keep all of your crop;
100 postings; Apprentice -- a dough cutter;
250 postings; Journeyman -- a pizza cutter;
500 postings; Master Builder -- a 5-pack of Caputo flour;
1000 postings; Pizzaiolo -- A Molino Caputo T-shirt;

What do you think of the levels and titles?

One more thing. Fine sand.

Well, now that I can look down at the serf's and peasant's - I'm good with that:D

Les,

A measly 100, eh? You've only got 526 to go to come up to my level, nyah, nyah:D . I'll go with the Master Builder title; sounds pretty fine to me. Already got the Caputo, courtesy James. Great stuff it is, too.

Cheers,
Jim

Jim,

I definitely have some work to do to get to your level, and your input has been awesome! But come on, you get flour, where as I get a DOUGH CUTTER - that's got to be the holy grail of the forum. ;)

Back to the sand - would fine be considered a #30?

Les...
