If you're still seeing centered text, go ahead and clear your browsers cache and you should be good.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

I did something really stupid and the text should be left aligned now! Sorry about that guys <3

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

No worries! That should probably be in there anyway :)

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Yes. You'd generally have to vote pretty frequently for that to happen though. You can also find our full Voting FAQ here.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

If you're seeing Wondrous Items at first, just click a voting option and it should show the proper items from this year. Just a strange quirk, but nothing a good smash can't fix :)

Go, go, go!

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 community@paizo.com so we can pass it along to the right people.

Removed a post and reply to it. This level of sarcasm really isn't necessary or helpful.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Locking this one. Even if this is your GMs campaign, this really isn't appropriate or OK here.

I'll wait and see I guess. It still bothers me though. This is the reason that I don't touch the flagging button most of the time. Short of someone being all like "**** you and **** your mother, brother, and dog too, you lousy **** ****** piece of **** **** *** ~!31 ** 43*!!@!#D:<" (and then probably if it's directed towards someone else and not me :P), I'm very hesitant to flag stuff because I may not have understood it. Even when someone is being insulting to me personally, I generally let it slide (I'm quicker to flag something insulting someone else, but generally I think the right thing to do is call people on their misbehavior because that's how social development works).

All too often I feel like the flagging system just gets abused to stifle conversations, to censor things that aren't innately terrible but the flagger doesn't agree with, like, or makes them personally uncomfortable (and let's face it, we can be made uncomfortable by virtually anything if we allow ourselves to be).

In this case I saw someone who was actively trying to better understand and explain where their position was. Some commented they weren't sure if it was trolling or not (because some of the questions were potentially hot topics), and I even said "No it's not trolling, let's give it a chance" and that was all for naught. Maybe I should have been like "This post is legit, I've got PMs asking about things from a similar vein, and can even see where some of the feedback I provided ended up in the post addressing everyone," but hindsight is 20/20 as they say.

It's one of the reasons I generally steer clear from stuff like this. I'm not fond of the "us" and "they" mentality and I might have been slipping into it here. I don't know. I just feel maybe it would be best for me to return to the "neutral observer who points out what s/he feels is logical problems in heavy discussions". It might just be easier to have a real conversation with people if I don't identify as anything. It often gets me painted as a bigot but at least I know I'm not representing people other than myself.

Anyway, good thread overall KSF. Best of wishes now and forever.

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 community@paizo.com or post to the Website Feedback forum. Let's get this thread back to it's topic though :)

Hey Artemis and Tarinia, I sincerely apologize if this was taken as a personal slight. There's been some misinterpretation on our part and we'll be responding to you via email with further clarification as soon as we're able so as to not derail the thread further.

The PDF has been updated to match the second printing and an errata document is now available for download above!

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Just popping in real quick to announce that the errata for the second printing of the Technology Guide is now up. I'm actively chipping away at the Monster Codex update as we speak.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

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 community@paizo.com.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Removed a baiting post and the replies to it. Again, this thread has been kept as civil as a thread like this honestly can, and we'd really rather not have to lock it. Posts that only serve to stir up negative reactions and not address the actual topic being discussed here really aren't helping.

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 community@paizo.com so we can help.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Removed a post. Don't pile onto an issue that's being addressed out of thread.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

PFS has it's own forum for discussion of online events here. The new forum is more or less for general PbP discussion/advice/questions.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

1 person marked this as a favorite.

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.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

It's brand new! We figured that there's enough traction in Online Campaigns that it might be useful :)

Also, if you see any threads that might be a better fit there, go ahead and flag and we'll get them moved over.

So here is my confusion: one person literally says that I am either lying or brain damaged for my views, and I call him on it. Why is my calling him on it too abrasive, but his is not?

Hey Fergurg, I've gone ahead and sent you an email regarding this.

Removed a few baiting posts and responses to them. Personal insults really don't add anything to the conversation. Also, please flag and move on.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Nope. Once an entry goes through the submission tool, we can't touch it. This would break the anonymity requirement for Open Call.

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.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

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 community@paizo.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.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

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 community@paizo.com so we can help, not as a thread opener.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Removed a couple posts and locking. We're done here.

Really? I haven't seen a single wrapped title, even when it's this guy:

RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16, RPG Superstar 2013 Top 16 , Marathon Voter 2013, Dedicated Voter 2014 aka RainyDayNinja
As an experiment, I tried shrinking my browser window really small, but it never wraps the title.

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.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

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.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

The titles actually have a rule to wrap on smaller screen sizes, however, the links on the right don't. So, it could potentially do this if you're on a small screen and someone has a ginormous title.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

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. :)

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

We've also gone ahead and added this to the FAQ.

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Huh... that's really weird. It might be something I'm just not seeing/isn't replicating properly on our side, either way I'll let the team know.

I find myself amazed that pointing out discrepancy of police action, in response to the racial component of the use of excessive and/or lethal force, is deemed unsuitable - yet flagging victim-blaming meets with remarkable amounts of laissez faire.

I suppose we have to settle for illustrating the culture that pervades.

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 community@paizo.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 :)

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Hey there, we'll go ahead and answer this one via email because it involves multiple accounts and may require some verification on our end. I'll see if I can replicate the problem and what we can do for you.

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!

Paizo Employee Paizo Glitterati Robot

Yep, please flag the posts. That brings it to our attention much more efficiently than posting :)

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.

Unfortunately, once an entry is submitted we cannot go back to correct any issues. This would break the anonymity requirement for the contest.
