Removed a few heated posts and the replies to them. Text is often an imperfect medium. Instead of responding with hostility or implications that the other person cannot read/digest information, take a moment away from the keyboard, and refocus on the ideas in the debate, not individuals in the conversation.
Removed a post. If we remove a post, and you feel we're in the wrong, ping us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, please don't drag drama into threads which are already likely going to spur debate. Additionally, do not disclose the contents of private messages out of respect for others in the conversation and in our community.
Hey Guys! There isn't an automated process on our end for submissions, and I apologize if it was unclear that a human was over here confirming emails. But, I've gotten through all the submissions in the contest inbox and you should have all gotten confirmations if you sent anything in last night/this morning :)
I'm going to go ahead and lock this one. We're really not comfortable facilitating discussions where very real life experiences and dispositions are being responded to so dismissively. We welcome gamers who come from all walks of life, and the responses that amount to "suck it up or move on" are counter to our goals of making our community friendly or inviting.
Removed a few more posts. To compound on Liz's post: jumping to conclusions/attempting to derive intentionally negative connotations in others posts is baiting and ultimately doesn't contribute anything productive to the conversation. This thread's topic obviously is going to stir some strong feelings, however, turning it into an argument which undermines the intent and discussion prompted by the original post isn't OK. The goal of the paizo.com community is to create a fun and friendly atmosphere for gamers of all types to feel welcome, these kinds of posts are counter to that goal.
Removed some posts/replies to them. Even though the threads in this particular forum pertain to Pathfinder Online, posts in them need to adhere to our Community Guidelines. This includes not baiting other posters and throwing around personal insults.
Hey there! It looks like your campaign hasn't seen recent activity since about August 2014. I believe if you and your players post to any of the threads, it should pop back into your active campaigns list. I've noted this behavior for our tech team to look at though for the next time we revisit Campaigns :)
PS: Congratulations on your new tiny human!
Hey guys, let's back off a bit here. If there are other threads or posts that you think have been problematic, or there are things that have been flagged that you think we've missed, please drop us a line at email@example.com. We cannot help improve a situation if we're not made aware of it, as much as we'd like to. I get that there have been hurt feelings, and sincerely apologize if we've missed the mark, but let's move forward.
That said, we appreciate any feedback (including the negative!) on the contest, the voting process, and what we can do to improve the general feel around this forum during RPG Superstar season. This is obviously an indicator that we have work to do on that front, and I would suggest starting a new thread if you want to continue that line of discussion.

If they were to do two smaller culls, that might be alright. Say 25% after 1/3 the voting time, and then 25% of the remainder 2/3 of the way in. More than 50% all at once is excessive and will kill many voter's enthusiasm for voting as well as for the competition in general.
That's actually a pretty interesting suggestion. I think one of the detriments of the contest is falling in the holiday season where planning the cull (or multiple culls) gets a bit tricky. I'll add this to our list of things we can improve/revisit next time around :)
Finally, I can announce that the Monster Codex is available on the PRD! You'll also notice that we've removed iScroll from the site and some style changes. Since it'll be a while until our next book update (the Strategy Guide will not be appearing here), there will be a smaller update to address the bugs/issues detailed in the last couple pages later this month. I'm also planning an a big update to give our indexes some love, take a look at our navigation structure, and maybe we'll see about doing something about how we organize our monsters ;)

If they did cut more this year, one reason might be that the cut came pretty late in the process. We had several weeks of voting pre-cull, and only one week left to vote. They may have felt that allowed for a deeper cut than in previous years.
This is essentially the reasoning behind a more drastic cull. We've got only 5 days, 13 hours, and 22 minutes until voting closes :)
