From our press release:
Removed a few posts containing personal insults and starting to deliberately escalate the conversation. Just a gentle reminder that we're both: A) not OK with defaming other companies or publishers on our site, and B) sometimes this line of discussion skirts close to, and results in negative edition warring rhetoric. Let's keep this focused on Pathfinder please.
The organisers are apparently choosing to shirk responsibility and trying to sell it as a new benefit, when people had this option before.
This isn't the case for why the schedule was adjusted. This change is based on feedback received from previous years, our new status as a 4-day convention, and a variety of other factors. The employees that work to organize PaizoCon/PFS events and our volunteers put in a lot of effort to make the show a success, and "shirking responsibility" isn't something these people do (they're pretty excellent!).
If it turns out that this schedule *doesn't* work out, then it may be revisited for future shows, but I'd really suggest waiting for our final event schedule to be posted.
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.
