How big your inbox gets after taking 3 days off is kinda lame. I swear the bottom is here somewhere...

Removed a series of unhelpful posts. It's fine to think that compiling a list like this one isn't worth your personal time, but don't give others flak who'd like to keep track. Additionally, disparaging remarks about third-party publishers aren't productive or OK here.

Can confirm that the ducks will be in a row for the announcement at noon! I've also flipped a switch that turned off the visual rewrite for the RPG Superstar URLs and all the pages *should* be loading properly for everyone.

Stepping in here real quick: our forums are intended to be a welcoming environment for gamers of all stripes. It is really quite disturbing to see others suggesting that individuals who have been harassed before (whether on our site or others) are actively provoking or inviting harassment upon themselves. We are not OK with this kind of rhetoric directed at other posters on our forums. The internet absolutely has unsafe spaces and unsafe users, but in this space we endeavor to make an environment where people don't need to feel that they must have their guard up against harassment at all times. And to echo Liz, emailing us with the details of any harassment encountered as soon as possible is the best way for our team to help resolve any issues between posters.

Ah, that clarifies things, Neil was listed as a Round 5 Judge only. Did y'all bribe him with letting him publish his precursor adventure to Realm of the Fellnight Queen?

There aren't a *lot* of people who don't work in the Paizo offices I'd ask to be a judge for every round, but Neil is absolutely on that very short list. He's been a huge part of this contest and community every year, and I was thrilled when he agreed to the massive time commitment being a judge for the entire contest.

No bribery needed. :)

Oh? Tell us about his Judgernaut forum tag :P

A gninja did it.

I'm afraid I already know the answer, but is there any chance we can get a best guess time estimate? I saw my item for the first time yesterday early afternoon eastern time, but now I don't know if that means it survived, or was just a fond farewell and sendoff. So more nail biting suspense till it shows up on the radar.

The cull occurred around 3:40 PM Pacific time.

D'oh could have sworn I posted, but yes, another cull was performed yesterday afternoon! I'm still sifting through the DQ reports in the inbox, however.

Locking. Don't bring this kind of content from other communities (including venues like Facebook) to paizo.com. It just stirs up drama that nobody really needs.

Merged threads, adjusted thread title, and moved to Gamer Talk subforum since this isn't a system specific discussion. I've also removed a series of pointed and baiting posts. It's absolutely fine to express your own preferences and gaming experiences, but remember that we welcome gamers to our site of all stripes. Additionally, when we temporarily lock a thread over the weekend, it's because we want to be able to take time to address it properly. Remaking the thread and then bringing the contentious/insulting comments over to that new one is really not cool. I also encourage the participants of this thread to take another look at our Community Guidelines and keep them in mind before continuing to post.

There is an order! Owen and Neil are towards the top since they are present throughout the contest, then the judges are alphabetical, and I'm at the bottom since I'm 100% logistics, not gaming content :)

Removed a long series of posts and locking. Debate is absolutely OK on our site, but pointed statements about any member of our staff and the quality of their work as an employee is inappropriate and ultimately baiting for an argument (and to be clear, we're not cool with this kind of commentary directed at anyone in our community, whether they're from Paizo, a 3PP, or a fan). Some of the commentary here from a few sides was verging on outright toxic also. Read through our Community Guidelines before posting.

Removed a series of pointed back and forth posts.

Our Venture Officers and volunteers aren't actively working to make arbitrary decisions about who can and cannot play at organized play tables on a whim or "just because." Much like how the Paizo staff moderates discussions, these people moderate the experience at their table and at game days. It's not a perfect system, there will be judgement calls, and yes, some people will disagree and results may vary. Heck, it's even possible that there is somebody making bad calls (and that's the point at which to contact us directly, because we do care), since we're human and that just happens. I implore everyone in this discussion to not jump to the worst conclusion about others in the conversation. I understand that it's easy to get caught up in a game related debate, but posts really need to keep our goal of keeping this community an inviting and productive space and adhering to our Community Guidelines, which is to say: be cool to each other, folks.

Moved this one to the Suggestions/House Rules/Homebrew forum and removed some posts. It's fine to offer a suggestion for the game, but do not be condescending to others in the conversation.

Will anything come from the questionnaire we answered to Chris Lambertz on that one thread?

We're working on evaluating what responses we received will work best within Paizo's workflow/with other departments (and there's some crucial pieces we're still waiting on internally). But yes, it's safe to say something *will* happen, but it's going to take some time. But, I think that's a discussion probably best not had in this particular thread.

We understand that the "snark" thread has been a longstanding thing that crops up with every year of RPG Superstar. However, we want to remind everyone in this thread that the items you're voting on generally aren't done by people who have experienced public criticism on their design work and some comments we've seen have gotten fairly mean. We ask that you refrain from specific details about the items you're voting on, because it's a great way to make a participant feel isolated from the community and discouraged from continuing to participate in the future. We welcome gamers from all walks of live and skill level, so be cool to each other, and remember that the snark thread is intended to be light-hearted. If it becomes a continuous issue in this thread, we'll close down the discussion.

The formatting note has been added to the contest FAQ, by the way.

The culls will be small and frequent, as opposed to the mass cull of last season, so they won't be announced via a blog or anything. Because of this, the amount of entries, and the shortened timeline, it will be less obvious to spot what's been taken out. Owen may decide to say when we perform culls, but it'll be a fairly seamless process.

This year, given the short timeline of our contest and changing up the Open Call round, our judge announcements were a tad late. However, that doesn't mean the lineup isn't impressive! This year we welcome back Neil Spicer, who will be a judge for all contest rounds, Jason Engle, contributing artist and cartographer, Victoria Jaczko, winner of RPG Superstar 2014, and a number of Paizo staff.

Take a look at the full list of judges here!

The name/alias override is an overarching setting based on the name you have entered on your paizo.com account, so no aliases here.

Just a quick note though: if you make it to the Top 32 and prefer to go by a different name or nickname, please drop me a line at community@paizo.com and we'll get you sorted out. We want our contestants to feel comfortable with the name they have associated with their work.

When you ban a term for a thing that exists, people are just going to come up with a new one, because to speak properly you need to describe what you're talking about. Whether it's Fanboy, Paizo Defense Force, Hammer Legion Member (Valve's failed attempt at eradicating the use of the word fanboy with a word filter BTW), or anything else, it all means the same thing.

It's incredibly corrosive and divisive to call other posters "munchkins" or "rollplayers" for not agreeing with you as well, but I don't see you removing every post that uses those words as an insult, and they fly like rain in a thunderstorm from "Those Who Fit That Term We May Not Use" in these sorts of debates, and any others involving rules. I'd argue it's MORE divisive, since it's a commonly used way to attempt to shut down someone's argument without addressing it, and paints anyone who cares about the rules (the majority of the products your company puts out I might add) as an inferior sort of gamer. And don't tell me just "flag it and move on", since you and I both know that's as much of a full time job as flagging those spammers.

One-sided censorship just makes you look like a hypocrite, or like you're favoring one side when you're meant to be an impartial moderator.

I'm fully aware you're going to delete this, I just hope you read it first.

Rynjin, in our Community Guidelines we have a line that says "There are all kinds of gamers here on paizo.com. Use of derogatory labels for other gamers can be hurtful and isolate others who enjoy different styles of play. You may find yourself in a debate on our messageboards, and disagreements are bound to happen. Focus on challenging the idea, rather than the others in the conversation. Remember that there’s another person on the other side of the screen. Please help us keep it fun!" This line was written expressly because we do not want people using pejoratives like "munchkin" or "rollplayers" and terms like "Paizo Defense Force." If we missed posts that do this, let us know. We're human, and if we're not alerted to these posts via our flagging system, email, or our Website Feedback forum, we can't do anything about it. Accusing our team of censorship is uncalled for in this case, and if you have further issues, please take it to our community@paizo.com inbox, rather than debating our moderation policies in this thread.

Oh, that's a relief. Our manual indicates (and this is a paraphrase) "should turn off after a few trips" and that we should finish off this tank before truly worrying. I'm glad I've kept it around and in the car, that was a bit alarming pre-coffee.
