Hi,

If this has already been done then please point me in the right direction.

There are two things that I know well. Computers and playing drums. On other forums, I use the name wizarddrummer.

I have taught both of these disciplines.

It's been said a picture is worth 1000 words. I would assume a video is worth at least 1,000,000

I've read only a small percentage of the information here, perhaps 500 posts on this forum and related links from this forum to other sites.

I would like to see a section with stickys that has links to small bite sized videos that teach some of these techniques that I read about.

The reason for this request, is that due to the nature of forums, many of the older posts get buried and the same or similar topics come up again and again.

I've read about dough dripping off of tables. I read it but I don't quite get it. I'm a hands on; need to see it kind of learner. I used to throw the insidious UNIX manuals against the wall because after two pages of high brow gobbledygook they didn't give one clear EXAMPLE.

I'd love to see some training videos developed that illustrate things like what bad fermentation looks like.

Vids on how to fix problems and what problems can be fixed.

The difference between a dough that has a low % hydration vs a high % hydration and how they bake side by side. They don't have to be elaborate or fancy ...  just informative.

Perhaps some videos on preferments and poolishes and how they are incorporated into the dough

Videos on sauce preparation.

If you took the topics of the 30 most frequently asked questions and turned them into video instruction it would save a lot of repetitive answering; at least I think it would.

The videos might already exist, except there is no index for them at the present moment.

I'd also like to see some videos regarding cooking temps and oven placement.

For example, I am totally confused about oven placement. I'll start a separate thread about this after this post but, it would be nice to see the results of people that have years of experience.

Just a suggestion...

I'm sure we would all welcome an index of all the videos members have linked to in this forum. If anyone wishes to volunteer to do such a thing, we could easily setup a repository for that information. In the meantime an advanced search on the term "youtube" will return a ton of pages with links to videos. Someone could use that as a start for building an index if so inclined.

I've put up a bunch of videos on YouTube over the years with plans for more in the future. You asked for videos on sauce preparation. Here is a thread about a little one I did on how I make sauce from canned tomatoes for Neapolitan pies:

If you type "video" into the search box you get a return of 24 pages of posts with videos in them. And most of those posts' headlines describe what the vid's for.

It might be faster than going through all the threads here try to index them.

Just my $0.02...

You might start a new thread titled.. Best Videos On Pizza Making
Then request that members here post links to their favorite pizza making videos.
If it turns out well, the moderator here could possibly make it a sticky post.

I did a similar thing here...
Best Threads with Photos of Pizza
http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,7799.0.html

As a matter of fact, I'd like to nominate reply#5 in the link above as a sticky post.
Those are some great photos that will make you hungry for PIZZA!

Thank you!

It goes to show, if members here have a good idea they can post a new thread that would encourage other members to contribute and a valuable thread will often be created.
