Locking this one. Discussion or drama from other communities really doesn't need to port itself over here. If you are concerned about possible copyright infringement or other potentially illegal activities with Paizo's Intellectual Property, please email email@example.com so we can pass it along to the right people.
Ashiel, I understand this feedback and it's definitely got to look "off" from the outside. However, we are humans here and flags don't inherently mean we'll respond to a post. Sometimes we misstep, and we keep striving for better and more open communication on this front. This is one of those cases we could have done better. If you have ideas for areas we can improve on, or suggestions for what we can do differently, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or post to the Website Feedback forum. Let's get this thread back to it's topic though :)
Removed a post and the replies to it. We are not okay with the framing of posts that attempt to speak in place of other users intentions or feelings and we do not consider the revealing of contents from private messages to be in the community's best interest. Additionally, if you are noticing posts that seem "off" or violate any of our Community Guidelines please flag them and move on. Do not respond to them.
Additionally, because several longer posts were removed because they were quoting/in response to removed posts, if you would like any of this text recovered, please ping email@example.com.
Removed a post and the replies to it. Disagreeing with an element of Pathfinder Online or an idea presented by Goblinworks/Paizo staff is fine, but making the comparison that their decisions or opinions are anything like rape is absolutely never acceptable on paizo.com. We're also not fond of claiming that things you think are stupid or disagree with are "retarded." If you're frustrated/offended/seeing red over something on our messageboards, take a moment away from the computer, do something else for a while, and come back and see if you can formulate a more calm response. If you find you can't do this, please ping us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help.
Not really. It's more or less that broad statements or detailed discussions about related subjects can result in long detailed discussion that may or may not be an appropriate fit in this thread. It's more or less a request from us to create new threads if you want to discuss something more specific. But again, this is Off-Topic, so things a bit faster and looser out here. It just helps us moderate more heated issues if posts are generally about the same thing in threads like this one.
Hey Fergurg, I've gone ahead and sent you an email regarding this.
Not trying to disrupt too much here, because it seems people are resolving/debating the topics here fairly OK without our involvement. But, I've removed a couple baiting posts that are getting too abrasive/breaking some of our guidelines. If a post is making you see red or get frustrated, please take a moment away from the keyboard before responding. I'd also like to note that very broad statements about this issue can be a problem, let's try to keep this one centered around the topic from the original post please.
Removed some posts. This level of sarcasm is really not particularly helpful and only serves to bait to escalate the conversation. Also, let's not start breaking out popcorn posts, please. In the future, it's probably not a good idea to start a thread conflating gaming preferences with addictive narcotics.
Just dropping in here real quick: no posts have been removed, and this thread isn't getting locked. Alignment is obviously a topic that some gamers are fairly passionate/opinionated about, and we get that discussions are sometimes going to be heated. However, please understand that text is both an imperfect medium and often doesn't quite portray tone or emotion properly (such as short sentences coming off as abrasive or dismissive). And sometimes this topic causes the responses to be less than friendly because it's a discussion that dates back for quite some time. This really seems like a situation where there's been some common ground or message that's been missed.
I will say that openly calling for threads to be locked really puts us (the moderator team) in a very awkward position because whether we do or don't we're going to be wronging someone. If you are finding that posts are making you see red, please flag them and move on, or email us at email@example.com with the details about what's going on so we can try to help before these kinds of arguments go too awry. It might be a good idea when you're finding yourself frustrated at others in the conversation to get up, do something away from the keyboard, come back later and see if your response would still be the same.
From this point on, let's drop whatever arguments or insults were thrown around and go back to discussing how/whether alignment is used in your own game. We welcome all kinds of gamers here, so rather than turning the rest of this discussion into a debate about who is has wronged who, let's focus on that please. Thank you.
Just a quick note here: It's really *not* cool to refer to members of our community as "trolls." We're giving this thread the stink-eye about whether it should remain open or not, because this statement is incredibly baiting. We welcome all kinds of gamers here, and if you're actually experiencing an issue we'd rather it be communicated via firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help, not as a thread opener.
IE is notoriously cranky with CSS rules like this. I'd recommend checking to be sure whether compatibility mode is enabled or not. I can assure you that titles are designed to wrap though.
Just a quick note: let's drop the combative attitude here. There's really nothing productive that can result from an argument about who was insulting to who, or what constitutes a hurtful comment in this thread. Sure, rules debates and questions can rouse some heated discussion, but don't make it personal or more contentious. Flag and move on, folks.
Nope! We've been having some very windy weather and our whole area was out of power briefly yesterday. Recovering the site and our own internet access was a challenge taken up by our tech team who spent quite a long night working with our systems and ISP getting it all back together. You can find more information about that here.
And glad to be of help! Your situation brought up a very odd edge case that we know now we've got to work out. :)

If there's a flag/post you think we've overlooked or that we've made a mistake, please let us know by pinging our team at email@example.com. We're human here and the forums are fast paced and it's possible for us to miss posts on occasion (though we really try not to).
Hey there, I've done a double check on the tool on our end, and it doesn't appear that this has been a feature on the submission tool at any point. However, it might be a good idea to have this alert for people previewing prior to submission, so I'll forward it on to our tech team as a feature request for future contests :)
Removed a series of posts and responses to them that were veering into territory that's not really the specific topic of discussion here. We've had to lock three different threads that are related to this one in the last week that devolved into sniping, back and forth insults, racist/offensive comments and so on. We'd really really prefer not to have to impose a "don't talk about this on paizo.com" stance because of this behavior, so please take a moment to read our Community Guidelines before posting and keep this thread generally centered around the topic presented in the original post. Thanks!

I looked and looked but couldn't find an answer to this: is each participant limited to a single submission?
Yes. Entries are limited to one entry per person. For further reference: we strongly discourage multiple accounts (you can find this in our Community Guidelines) or attempting to circumvent this requirement as it will lead to disqualification. I'll make a note to clarify this in our FAQ when I am in the office tomorrow.
Going to go ahead and lock this one. We're really not comfortable facilitating a conversation that exists solely to disparage people regarding their decision to be parents or disposition as parents. We welcome people from all backgrounds and this kind of topic doesn't contribute to the fun/friendly environment we'd like to have around here.
