You guys are probably right given that you may have been interacting with paizo for way longer than I have... but as a first interaction with the company, although it logically doesn't it make sense, it has spoiled the experience a bit... but hey, we'll see what happens, maybe things won't fill up as quickly as I expect, or maybe I'll just get random stuff that I'll like. In any case, it's not the end of the world. Thanks for letting me vent.
Your venting is definitely heard and we understand completely. I wish we could make sure that our scheduling worked for everyone and that we didn't have situations where we're constantly switching up dates/times, unfortunately this is the result this time. We're going to do our best to keep this from ever becoming a reoccurring issue.
I know our whole team behind PaizoCon regrets that this has generated so much (justified) confusion/frustration for everyone waiting to get at their event results. We've (the tech team, Sara and myself) been working the last nearly 6 hours to try to get this right, and we don't want people registering and then having to re-register because of the issues we've been running into. Rescheduling this last minute is not something anyone on our staff is particularly pleased about. Moving this to tomorrow ensures that we're in clear minds to correct the remaining issues and also keep people from staying up late into the night waiting on us to announce that it's opened. Thank you so much for your continued patience, and we're making notes of everything we're seeing to keep it from reoccurring in the future.
Locking this one. We're not comfortable facilitating a conversation that's already begun to become a platform for disparaging people regarding their decisions as parents and just flat out arguing. We welcome people from all backgrounds and this kind of topic doesn't contribute to the kind of environment we'd like to have around here.
Hey everyone, just a quick update that we have extended the lottery signup window to Tuesday, April 28 at 2:00 PM! We wanted to be sure everyone had enough time over the weekend and early next week to get their selections in. :)

Removed a few comments and just popping in for a reminder here: topics involving religion and gaming and the greater discussion of campaign settings have the tendency to turn into a platform for very negative and often hurtful comments. Even if your personal beliefs are contrary, being civil and cognizant of others in the conversation is important.

Locking. Paizo.com isn't the place for this kind of hostile, negative, and ultimately unproductive style of posting. We are also absolutely not OK with malicious speech directed at people for their size, or for any other reason. Read the Community Guidelines before continuing to post.
So, just to give an update: we've gotten rid of all of the spammers as of last night/this morning. I'm talking to our tech team to formulate a more effective means of handling this kind of activity on paizo.com in the future, but we may not see tools for some time given their workload.
We absolutely appreciate you all bringing this kind of stuff to our attention! The flagging system is really the most effective way of notification for these guys, and extra threads/posts saying "more spam!" can sorta end up also acting like spam. We also ask that you don't respond to their posts directly, as it does add to the time we spend cleaning the threads up.
Sounds good. Looks like tickets for the Star Wars exhibit are above and beyond the normal ticket and are time specific. I'll touch base via PM and we can hash out details. :)
It looks like the Star Wars tickets are combo tickets (which means they're a few dollars more than the normal ~$20 price) and allow you access to all exhibits. That said, they just opened the more general Sci-Fi area recently, which is pretty exciting since it's been gone for a while. I'm totally not looking into it to convince robo-husband to go again >.>
There are no plans to make this queue public. The Design Team's method for working through these is contingent on too many factors other than sheer volume for clicks. It also opens up potential for not only abuse of the system, but abuse directed at the team directly. However, there are some ideas floating around the office surrounding notifying the community when an FAQ is available, or if there's going to be plans to answer FAQ/generate errata for specific products, also.
Removed a couple posts and replies to them. Do not use "rape" in place of "destroy/ruin/et cetera" or in reference to anything other than sexual assault. Additionally, blanket statements that everyone else in the conversation is less intelligent are baiting and don't encourage productive discussion.
Removed a few posts and the replies to them. We understand that some of the topics touched upon in this thread will have facets that not everyone has personally experienced or are as educated about. However, when you post on paizo.com, the content of your posts needs to keep the Community Guidelines in mind. What you post may have a very negative impact on others in the conversation and may even be offensive because text is an imperfect medium for portraying intent. It might be a good idea to do some research or reach out to other online communities that might be more specifically targeted to the subject you are trying to learn about.
Additionally, while you may be heated about a topic, advocating violence/illegal activity isn't OK here. We're also not OK with the use of "wankstain" to express displeasure with a person/group of people either.
Removed a heated post. Okay, I don't like quoting policy directly as a method for moderating, but this is important to remember from our Community Guidelines "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." Everyone plays the game differently, and one size doesn't fit all when it comes to various systems. So disparaging remarks on other companies/systems or styles of play should be left out of the conversation. Be cool to each other and let's turn this thread around.
