To expand a little on the PaizoCon tangent... (yes, I know, Bad Chris™ derailing the thread!)
I really encourage you to read the About page to read up on the show. PaizoCon's origins lie in fostering a more close-knit style meetup with our community, offering opportunities to meet folks you'd otherwise know as a few blips over the great wide interweb.
The show is Paizo-run, so we need all hands on deck to run events, run the store, and make the experience of attending the best that it can be. And since our office is still comprised of just ~60 (give or take) people, that means our normal operations in the surrounding week slow down/totally shut down. It probably sounds strange from an outsider perspective, but we really take this convention very seriously and most of us are pretty personally invested in our individual responsibilities. This is in addition to the outpouring of volunteers in the PFS room, our licensed partners, and third-party publishers.
If you have any other questions about the convention, I invite you to go ping us in the PaizoCon subforums :)
Ended up removing a pretty unnecessarily escalated back and forth exchange. Folks, product discussion threads need to stay centralized on the product they're about for usability reasons. We also really need members of our community to avoid making baiting posts/posts that serve to intentionally result in a negatively charged response. Flag, move on, and familiarize yourself with our Community Guidelines.
Removed some posts. Folks, using terms like "munchkin" as pejoratives, making digs at other styles of play, accusations of trolling, and otherwise dismissive commentary towards others in the community are totally unproductive. Based on the removed posts here, I'm not convinced that this discussion can be had without having the above creep out and have decided to go ahead and keep this one closed.
Removed some baiting derails over semantics and abusive posts. Folks, we're really not interested in hosting a thread where folks gnash at each other over the words like "traditional", "classic" and other similar terms to describe a fairly typical set of game setting tropes. If you want to have a discussion about the content of these settings, whether they're still relevant/dominant, that's perfectly fine. However, if you have an axe to grind about the difference between synonyms like these, take it elsewhere.
When are we going to have another update to fix this and the other bugs? Thanks.
The team that performs the PRD updates is comprised of two people (myself and Liz Courts). This is on top of our other areas of responsibility, and Paizo has had a lot of exciting and new things crop up in the last few months that have required us to divert attention elsewhere. We are still working on items as we have time, and I hope for us to have an update before PaizoCon (barring any outstanding emergencies). I know it's not "good" news, but we're doing what we can. We appreciate your patience as we catch up :)
I'll see about adding these details to the description and our PaizoCon page, but:
- Food is included, served buffet style.
Removed several posts and locking. Folks, digging up information on another user for the sole purpose of escalating the conversation isn't appropriate on our website, especially when that talking point isn't on topic. It's fairly toxic behavior that doesn't help any thread. I'm also closing this since it no longer appears to be about the original topic.
Removed a series of posts. Again, let's keep this discussion centered on the original topic. We have a variety of community members who would be/are fairly uncomfortable engaging in this conversation when others use phrases typically used to describe "sex" rather than "gender." For the purposes of this thread and keeping our community a welcoming space for gamers of a variety of backgrounds, my team would appreciate if folks used "women" or "girls" from this point on. If you have further feedback on this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
