The most recent 1star reviews are most definitely nerdrage at its worst. Just check the posters' profile and see for yourself. Regrettably these fake reviews also pretty insulting to other reviewers BTW lower this product's rating. I did not imagine people stooping so low. I think these "reviews" should actually be discounted in the rating, or even taken down if the former is not possible.

Not only do they unfairly lower a product's rating and thereby its potential sales, they also devalue the work of honest reviewers on all products.

I propose that a flag system should be available for reviews similar to the one for posts

We don't currently have an ETA for when a flagging system for reviews will be available. In the meantime, please report these to community@paizo.com for us to look over.

I could have sworn I posted this here, but for folks looking for information on how this whole system works, please check our How-To thread.

We reached out to the duplicate account, but have not yet had a response. I've done a short term adjustment and you should now be able to change your avatar properly. We apologize for the inconvenience!

So with the Weclome to Paizocon thing when will more info on this be listed? I'm really curious to see this as its my first Paizocon but am torn between this & Bestiary Bash. I suppose it doesn't matter as I may not even get into that & this would be my next choice for the morning.

Also I've not seen anything about the Banquet listed, I may have missed that, when will this be so I can make sure not to schedule something during the banquet.

The banquet is a special event not available for signup via that page. Tickets are still available for purchase and more information is available here. I will be adding some more information from our FAQ to that page before I head out today as well (such as food options and style).

I've given this product a nudge, and it should be displaying the appropriate discount now.

Leave a Ticket, Take a Ticket

When you arrive at PaizoCon 2016, you will receive a packet containing your badge, event tickets, and other goodies. If you cannot make an event for whatever reason, there will be a designated board at the show for leaving your event ticket for other attendees to pick up. If you missed out on a lotteried event during the online lottery/registration/trading process or missed the open registration window entirely, keep an eye on this board for a ticket.

If you are looking to join a Pathfinder Society table without pre-registering, check in with the Headquarters table in the Grand Ballroom at the show for potential open seats.

Note that accepting last-minute attendee changes is up to the discretion of the GM or person running the event. If you plan on doing a last-minute ticket trade, post to the event's thread or locate the GM/person running the event to let them know.

I am working on my schedule now for PaizoCOn and I am wondering what time Saturday will the Banquet begin and end?

7:00 PM to 10:00-11:00-ish. I'll get that information added in some appropriate places once I get a moment :)

Paizo Employee Community & Digital Content Director

Event Trading

After the Event Lottery results are announced, you can trade your event registration with other PaizoCon attendees from the Event Schedule page. In order to do this, you need to indicate which event (or events) you'd like to offer for trade in the Event Trading section that will appear on the Event Schedule page once Open Registration and Event Trading begins on Wednesday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time.

Note that in order for a trade to go through, you need to have that given time slot open on your schedule, otherwise the system will detect it as a scheduling conflict and prevent the trade from going through.

Paizo Employee Community & Digital Content Director

The Buddy System

You may request only one other PaizoCon attendee as your "buddy." You and your buddy will always be assigned to lottery events together. When you make a buddy request, your buddy will be sent an email asking them to accept your buddy request. They must accept your request before the end of the lottery selection process.

The buddy system is intended for guests who need to attend PaizoCon lottery events with another guest such as a parent and child. Because the lottery system can only place buddies in events with two or more open seats, it may limit the number of events available for two buddies to be placed in.

1. Send the Buddy request from the Event Schedule page.
2. When the Buddy gets the email showing their has been a request, the Buddy should go to their event page on their account and accept the buddy request.
3. If the request does not appear on their account page, make sure that you sent the request to the correct email address and make sure that they have a PaizoCon badge on their account.

The buddy system works for lottery events only. For open registration events both you and you buddy need to make sure to sign up for the event. Registration for open events starts on Wednesday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time.

Paizo Employee Community & Digital Content Director

Open Registration Events

These events are generally things open seating, on-going events, or events for Pathfinder Society (except the Sunday night special).

Open Registration will begin on Wednesday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. You cannot select Open Registration events until then.

We have posted all of our available events so that you can more accurately plan your schedule at the show. Please keep in mind that Open Registration events may fill up, and we encourage you to register for them online prior to the convention. You can find these events by selecting "Recommended" or "Not required" under the Registration section on the left side of the Event Schedule page.

Paizo Employee Community & Digital Content Director

Lottery Events

These events are generally small tables of highly sought after games. Generally these games have a limited number of seats available and in order to provide the fairest opportunity for attendees to register for these games, we run an event lottery. To be included in the event lottery and get your chance at these games, you need to register your lottery preferences by Monday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time.

Quote:

Instructions from the Event Schedule page

Because certain events are highly sought after, have limited seating, or both, PaizoCon uses a lottery system to distribute the number of people able to attend these events. To participate in the event lottery, rank each event from 0 to 4:

0. I don't want to attend this event.
1. This event is the lowest priority for me.
2. This event is a low priority for me.
3. This event is a priority for me.
4. This event is my highest priority.

This system is designed so that the more accurately your rankings reflect your desires, the better we will be able to serve you. You'll be happiest with the results if you spend some time considering your relative rankings, and actually use 4s, 3s, 2s, 1s, and 0s. (For example: Using only 4s would not increase your odds of attending any event—it would just decrease our ability to figure out which events you really want to attend.)

The lottery will not assign you to events that you gave a 0, and it will not assign you to events with conflicting schedules.

The lottery will assign each days events in separate rounds. We'll randomize the list of attendees and, going down the list, assign people to one of their highest-ranked available events. When we reach the bottom of the list, we'll re-randomize it and start again, continuing this process until no more assignments can be made. We'll repeat this process for each day. This process is designed to allow the greatest number of people to attend one or more events each day (although we cannot guarantee any particular event or number of events to anyone).

After the lottery has ended, you'll be able to view your events on this page, and any events that still have open seats will be made available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Not everyone will "win" the lottery and be placed in Lottery Events. The purpose of the lottery is to make the process of signing up for these games as fair as we can. There are far more attendees than there are seats in lottery events. Depending on when your name comes up in the lottery and your preferences, you may not get into any lottery events. If this happens, keep in mind that there are still lots of open event games, seminars, and pick up games run on the fly.

Right, But How Does it Work?
If you want to know more about the lottery system here are some links to info about the buddy system and the lottery (all links stay on paizo.com):

How it works.
and how it works in plainer english
and why you can't have multiple buddies
and the buddy promise
and buddy use cases
and how the lottery works straight from the javadoc
and how it worked in 2015

The window for preference selection ends on Monday, May 9 at 12:00 PM Pacific time. We will then announce the results and open Open Registration and Event Trading on Wednesday, May 11 at 12:00 PM Pacific time.

Buddy system question can you have multiple buddies to sign up with for different events? ie. Me & buddy 1 for event ABC then me and buddy 2 for event efg?

I will be attending with my brother and 2 friends and would like to be able to buddy up with them for different events as would they.

You can only assign one buddy for lottery events. This is to ensure more even distribution of lottery events among attendees.

Locking and removed some posts. Folks, this thread really reads as arguing for the sake of making an argument, and that's not really the attitude and spirit of discussion we'd like to promote on our forums, and in particular, the Rules Questions subforum that is intended to be a resource.

We moved the release date for July products to August 4, which would be why there's a page change. We are still planning to authorize for July products in July and start subscriptions within that month. The short answer is that Gen Con logistics make July/August a bit hairy :)

Hey Clarence, it looks like the problem was that the first person in that thread deleted their post (causing it to get a bit borked). I've since removed that thread from your campaign and you should be good to go to start a fresh new one :)

Figured I'd go hunting to see if anyone else had the same problem I just did, and I'm glad I did instead of just starting a ne thread.

I did this same thing with a campaign I started recently, and it's preventing posts from showing up.

If you could delete the thread (or whatever else needs to be done) I'd appreciate it.

issue is here.

What are the specific details of this banquet?

Is food included? Is it buffet or served?
What time and what is the duration of the banquet?
Who is the keynote speaker? How many people will be speaking?
How many ticket is this limited to? How many are still available?

Thank you

I'll see about adding these details to the description and our PaizoCon page, but:

- Food is included, served buffet style.
- The banquet takes place at 7:00 PM, Saturday May, 28th, and runs roughly 2-3 hours, with optional post-banquet trivia.
- Erik Mona! The amount of people speaking varies from year to year, but expect to hear from our prominent team leads.
- We don't generally disclose this number, but I can tell you have we have plenty left :)

Removed a series of posts. Folks, using the "Breaks other guidelines" flag is a decent way to let us know about a post that doesn't quite fit with other descriptions. But, we are not mind-readers, and it's more helpful to email community@paizo.com about an issue rather than name calling and encouraging "dog-piling" behavior.
