It is not, it's likely an artifact of going from the PDF reader to whatever image editing software that's in use (this isn't something we can easily control, as software versioning or plugins or any number of variables can change this). Our policy is that how you use your PDFs (and images therein) should be limited to personal use and not redistributed.
Hey Skeld, can you let me know what pages/file you're experiencing this problem with? When we generate the files we try to avoid image elements preventing image selection for this reason (it's certainly annoying). If we missed a chapter or section, we can look into putting resolving/reissuing files onto the to-do list.
Slight correction, TOZ: Gary is still here :)
The big excitement is that the PaizoCon Banquet is where we've typically announced big and exciting new ventures for Paizo (like last year, when we announced Starfinder). And, of course, we seat an employee at most of the banquet tables during the duration of the banquet (the number of Paizo folk has been exceeded by table numbers at this point). You can find some details about the banquet here, also.
Removed a handful of posts. "Flouncing" is not a behavior we're particularly fond of—if you'd rather not read a given thread, you may hide it. Additionally, I've kicked some posts out that are skirting on "you game wrong"-style rhetoric and religion-centric baiting posts that we don't really need here.
Hey folks, I've been completely buried by Humble Bundle/live stream/personal illness madness, so apologies on the delay in a response.
The guidelines for the Product Discussion forum have not really ever been specifically laid out in our Community Guidelines. I think that there's been some confusion and conflicting messaging in terms of how Paizo prefers that those threads should go. We are reading this thread, we do want your feedback on this, and will be regrouping internally to suss out some "house rules" to possibly add to our guidelines page so that they are readily available.

If anything, I *may* be able to post some tweets to @paizo, but no liveblog is planned.
Update: I am trying to live-tweet via the @paizo account as I can, but switching between stream, Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter (and internal email) is no easy feat! This day is shaping up to be pretty excellent :)
Removed comments and leaving locked. Folks may choose for whatever reason they decide to exclude certain characters or elements of the products that Paizo publishes from their home games. However, we will not host comments or threads that serve to endorse discrimination/exclusion on the basis gender or sexuality. To host a project like this actively disparages the existence of a wide variety of gamers in our community, as well as the work of our authors, artists, and other contributors. We understand that this stance may be a dealbreaker for some, and that it's possible for our community and game to not be for everyone.
Removed a series of posts, including some lengthy ones (if you'd like to recover that text, please ping email@example.com). The forums are intended to be welcoming to gamers of all stripes and our products reflect inclusion of characters from all sorts of backgrounds. Hosting comments that serve to trivialize the experiences of other gamers or isolate other gamers who are excited to see reflections of themselves (or important people in their lives) in our products adversely impacts the goals we have for this space. Since folks agreed to drop the line of conversation on the last page, I suggest we leave it dropped or address specific concerns in another thread.
Temp locking to sift through this.
EDIT: Upon review, we're going to go ahead and leave this closed for now. The amount of negativity and overall grar popping up over the course of this thread so far doesn't give much confidence that it will not continue, and since we're heading into a long weekend, we'd rather not let it get too hairy.
Our forums are intended for gamers to gather and share their experience, help each other, and generally have fun. There's been a lot of talking past each other, personal insults, flouncing, and accusations of gaming "wrong" here, which really doesn't contribute to the goals we have for this space. I'd suggest taking a moment to read over our Community Guidelines (maybe taking a break away from the keyboard) and revisiting topics like this with those in mind.
Removed a handful of baiting posts and their responses. It's divisive and unhelpful to assign derogatory labels to gamers who don't play the game the way you'd prefer, bring hotly debated real-world political issues into the thread, or to derail the conversation to air grievances about our organized play program. Let's also dial back the passive aggressiveness (and not-so-passive-aggresiveness) here.
EDIT: If you feel a post was missed, please flag it or contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd prefer to not derail the thread with debating moderator decisions. Thanks!
Removed a handful of elevated posts. Folks, we suggest avoiding the use of objective statements such as "you're wrong" or derailing the conversation to be a debate about the very nature of mysteries (another thread for this is more appropriate if that's something people want to talk about) in a thread where the topic is discuss the general opinions people have about this aspect of our campaign setting. It's also unhelpful to call others trolls or make personally abusive statements at each other.
Moved to the Suggestions/House Rules/Hombrew subforum and removed a series of posts. Folks, the intent of this thread is to discuss what changes people would like in a new edition, not to debate whether one *should* exist. If you want to discuss the latter, there are other threads in which to do this.
GameMastery is a now-retired brand that was used for gaming accessories and modules published by Paizo. The overall shift away from the brand began in 2010, and was finalized in late 2012 (and completed in 2013)—you can find our blog about the transition here.
There were ~13* GameMastery Modules, and these transitioned to the Pathfinder brand with The Flight of the Red Raven in 2010. We are now up to ~50* Pathfinder branded modules (including our Free RPG Day items). The notable differences that have been made over the years is game edition (though, there are 3.5 Pathfinder branded modules), format (older modules have notes from the author/pregens/3-column layout), and that the later Pathfinder branded modules are a 64-page format with a poster map.
* These are very close off-hand estimates; might be off by a couple volumes.
