Removed some posts. Drawing comparisons between this thread and the events in Fergueson/surrounding Hobby Lobby/other contentious topics are not wholly appropriate and derail the conversation. Our moderation staff has had to intervene more that we'd prefer to see on this topic, and given that Gen Con is a very important event relevant to our hobby, it's troubling to think that we'd have to tell people that our community just can't handle talking about it. Take a moment away from the keyboard, regroup, read our Community Guidelines and remember that the people you're engaging with on paizo.com are likely just as passionate about this as you are. Keeping the thread on topic and without passive aggressive behavior/insults/purposely offensive statements is going to result in a much more productive discussion. If we have to continue revisiting this thread, it will be locked.
I've isolated the issue and the PDF should be fixed soon. An email will be sent out automatically when it's corrected.
Removed some posts and the replies to them. Paizo.com is not a platform for making judgements about the life choices and personal details of any single member of our community. Whatever axe you have to grind about employment and it's relationship to crowdfunding/donations, it's not appropriate in this context and can be taken elsewhere.
Removed a post and the replies to it. The product discussion threads aren't an appropriate venue for venting your frustrations at different play styles (including disparaging comments about others who prefer something that you do not), or Design Team decisions, or really anything isn't directly about the product itself. Please take a moment to read over our Community Guidelines before posting.
Just dropping in to say that Owen has been a wonderful host for this year's competition! Thank you for picking up the responsibility for making this contest awesome, and it's been so great working with someone with such great enthusiasm for the contestants/voters/onlookers throughout the whole thing :)

Heya DQ, if you'd like your name reverted, this is definitely within our capabilities! My sincere apologies for not noticing sooner! Go ahead and ping firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like this changed.
And I agree, this is definitely something we should consider for next year's contest. We want all RPG Superstar contestants to feel comfortable with the name next to their work and it's something I personally advocate for. I feel like the feedback we've gotten has been invaluable for improving the contest each year and appreciate it :)
Removed some posts and locking. It might be a good idea to start out a thread in a less combative tone and provide specific examples that you feel are worth discussing (possibly even isolating those ideas to their own threads). I'd also strongly suggest reading through our Community Guidelines before posting. Additionally, it does not help a conversation to reply to combative posts in kind. Flag and move on, please.
Removed a post. Subscriber status is irrelevant, and debating someone's purchase history (whether with Paizo or their FLGS) just isn't a line of discussion we want to open up. Also, we're unraveling at the seams here and going into a topic that probably should go in it's own thread, so we'll be locking this one.
Yeah, no, I pretty much think it's probably best to just drop this issue. Seems Paizo doesn't want to own up and explain why they changed this for no reason (not blaming Mark) and I'm probably pushing the limits on getting a 3-day ban for posting this as it is.
Just a quick moderator note: We don't make a habit of suspending people just for expressing opposing opinions or dissenting opinions about Paizo, and take suspensions fairly seriously (and if this is a concern you have, please drop us a line at email@example.com). However, I'd say that this thread isn't the one to express those opinions, since it's an Off-Topic thread for asking Mark questions for fun, and would suggest another thread for these comments. Let's keep this thread firmly centered around the spirit in which it was created, please. :)
Locking this one. We've got discussions about the status of errata in a few different places right now, and I think referencing those threads is going to be more productive than taking bets on how quickly our staff can work. We hear the issue and understand where this comes from, but are not confident that this is really needed.
And I can't bring myself to write this again, so here is my post from Facebook this morning:
Words cannot express how incredibly sad I am about this news. Pratchett has been an immensely wonderful influence on me in the last decade+ and the universe has claimed a truly brilliant star back into the greater cosmos.
Temporarily locking so we can sift through this.
EDIT: Now that I've gone through the last few pages, here's what's happened: a bunch of baiting/personally abusive/argumentative posts were removed. A few other posts were removed because they derailed the discussion beyond the intent/topic of this thread. As I mentioned in a related thread on this topic: our moderation team understands that FAQs can sometimes raise all sorts of questions and spur heated debate. We understand that the people who post here are going to get passionate about their experiences because it's their hobby/interest, and we appreciate the participation of those who are in this discussion. But, in order to keep threads like this one open and to encourage a positive/productive dialog between everyone involved, excessive sarcasm/passive aggressive posts/and pointed comments towards others in the conversation really need to be left out of it. Take a moment to read over our Community Guidelines before posting and remember to be cool to each other. Thanks.
Our policy and stance on this is firm and unlikely to ever change. If you have feedback about it, you can make a thread in Website Feedback or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
