Removed a series of heated posts. Personal insults don't help any conversation. Additionally, we don't have any issues with older threads being revived necessarily, so excessive snark about "necro-ing" a thread is somewhat baiting. Consider that folks new to our community may not be aware of clarifications or FAQs provided over the years. You may also want to take a look over our Community Guidelines prior to posting.
Moved this to Website Feedback.
Folks, let's pump the breaks on the negativity here. There's a lot of moving parts behind the scenes to get a new branch of organized play plugged into our website, and this is actually something that should be hooked back up for folks soon. If anything's been jostled out of place while we wrap up these changes that you think we've missed, just let us know.
Removed a series of back and forth posts. Folks, intent and tone can and do get lost in translation when it comes to communicating online. I've gone ahead and cleared these comments out because they don't involve a discussion of the book (which is what product discussion threads are for), and are likely to encourage more dog piling and derailment.
Locking temporarily so we can sort through this.
EDIT: Unlocking. Folks, this thread is a casual and friendly space for folks to ask James questions, which he spends quite a significant amount of time doing (let me emphasize that given the volume of this thread, it is an incredibly gracious thing for him to be responding as frequently as he does). It is so, so completely uncool to abuse this channel for personal gain or to stir up drama from other online communities, as well as to somehow defame/harass any individual.
Removed a handful of posts. Folks, please understand that phrasing information about our products as if you are an authority can be misleading to our customers, and makes the job of our employees to present/clarify information about those products more difficult. It's also somewhat out of place in this particular thread.
Locking. Given the trend for discussions like this one in the past few months, threads about "slavery in gaming" have become circular in way that does not benefit our community (in fact, in some cases, working to drive wedges within our community through racially/culturally insensitive posts). There is a fine line between discussing mature/socially unacceptable themes in a game and having that rhetoric come across as advocation of real world issues, not to mention that it's particularly difficult to parse folks' intentions. We're not OK with comments that endorse or skirt around endorsing real world slavery on our website. If you really want to discuss this take it to private messages or another venue.
Removed a post and the response to it. Equivocating sportscasting with the degeneration of the English language isn't appropriate for this thread—it is also quite problematic to assume that they (or others, including folks who post to our forums) are inherently somehow lesser for using slang. Additionally, the response to this post crossed the line in a major way. Do not use racial slurs on our forums.
Removed a handful of personally abusive posts, as well as further posts surrounding Milo. Folks, this individual is not up for discussion on our forums because of the toxic commentary that tends to follow. We reopened political discussions with the caveat that we need participants to work with our team and keep these threads civil. If you haven't read the sticky post in this forum, take a moment to do so, and keep the commentary in that post in mind while participating in this and other political threads.
Woodland Park Zoo is really great for littles (they have a family farm area, as well as Zoomazium for children 8 and under). I find the zoo a better visit than the aquarium in terms of time spent vs price of entry (our average zoo visit is about 3-4 hours, whereas the aquarium is about 1-2 hours) and it's also located next to a park with a playground, though you might be interested in a City Pass which looks like it'd include entry to both (plus a few other locations). There's also Discovery Park, which includes various hiking distances.
To expand on comment above: I will say that both the Olympic and Rainier National Parks are quite a time investment for travel, and probably warrant a visit of their own beyond PaizoCon to get the full experience :)
Removed a series of posts. Folks, using the phrase "they have balls" to apply to a political position/form of activism implies some considerably negative gender/sex stereotypes. Additionally, lengthy essays about voting strategy are not wholly appropriate within the context of this thread. If you'd like to recover any of this text, feel free to ping email@example.com.
Locking. This thread has gone far enough down a road of really negative commentary that it doesn't appear that it can be turned around. Folks, if a comment or thread is making you "see red" or makes you feel like resorting to tearing into each other, that might be a great moment to step away from the keyboard for a while (and possibly flag the post and move on, if it warrants moderation), or hide the thread. Some of these posts are totally unacceptable.
