Removed some posts. Drawing comparisons between this thread and the events in Fergueson/surrounding Hobby Lobby/other contentious topics are not wholly appropriate and derail the conversation. Our moderation staff has had to intervene more that we'd prefer to see on this topic, and given that Gen Con is a very important event relevant to our hobby, it's troubling to think that we'd have to tell people that our community just can't handle talking about it. Take a moment away from the keyboard, regroup, read our Community Guidelines and remember that the people you're engaging with on paizo.com are likely just as passionate about this as you are. Keeping the thread on topic and without passive aggressive behavior/insults/purposely offensive statements is going to result in a much more productive discussion. If we have to continue revisiting this thread, it will be locked.
I can only really respond on the messageboards front, so here we go: not every forum solution fits all. Our messageboards are actually more tightly integrated into certain parts of our website than you'd be lead to believe. We have some pretty great ideas floating around on how to improve the UX lately, but very likely not in the same direction as the forums linked above. The direction we take is going to be very unique to Paizo and address some of the years of backlog requests we've aggregated (including looking at BBCode and posting behavior and how we present threads). If you have some more specific ideas, we'd like to hear them!
They do not. The PDF version contains the pawns in a dieline for cutting out as a single image (we also include the mirrored version for each sheet of pawns).
I've isolated the issue and the PDF should be fixed soon. An email will be sent out automatically when it's corrected.
Removed some posts and the replies to them. Paizo.com is not a platform for making judgements about the life choices and personal details of any single member of our community. Whatever axe you have to grind about employment and it's relationship to crowdfunding/donations, it's not appropriate in this context and can be taken elsewhere.
Removed a post and the replies to it. The product discussion threads aren't an appropriate venue for venting your frustrations at different play styles (including disparaging comments about others who prefer something that you do not), or Design Team decisions, or really anything isn't directly about the product itself. Please take a moment to read over our Community Guidelines before posting.
Removed some posts and the replies to them. One of the important things in our Community Guidelines is being observant of other gamers/gaming styles. Even if there is something about a game/gaming you do not like, be respectful to others in the conversation. Additionally, we have many threads concerning the issues regarding the Advanced Class Guide. We do not need to rehash them here.
Just dropping in to say that Owen has been a wonderful host for this year's competition! Thank you for picking up the responsibility for making this contest awesome, and it's been so great working with someone with such great enthusiasm for the contestants/voters/onlookers throughout the whole thing :)

Heya DQ, if you'd like your name reverted, this is definitely within our capabilities! My sincere apologies for not noticing sooner! Go ahead and ping firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like this changed.
And I agree, this is definitely something we should consider for next year's contest. We want all RPG Superstar contestants to feel comfortable with the name next to their work and it's something I personally advocate for. I feel like the feedback we've gotten has been invaluable for improving the contest each year and appreciate it :)
Heya, the answer is a bit complicated, but here's how our system breaks down for this:
If they want to register for events in the Event Lottery, they will need to each have a PaizoCon 4-Day Badge on their own account (these can be transferred from your My E-Tickets page). The Event Lottery has a buddy system for up to 2 people to be linked up for events they select. The Event Lottery buddy system doesn't allow for groups larger than 2 to sign up together (this is a policy that we have in place because of the demand for some of the seats in higher profile lottery events). However, event trading occurs after the lottery is run if the third person is looking for an open seat. It's also possible that there may be an open seat if not enough people signed up for an event.
If both girls are going to be getting Kid's Badges (which would need to be transferred to their accounts from the My E-Tickets page still), they are not eligible for the Event Lottery process and can sign up to events when open registration begins. There is no buddy system for open registration, so all 3 of you would be looking at the schedule based on the number of open seats.
Removed some posts and locking. It might be a good idea to start out a thread in a less combative tone and provide specific examples that you feel are worth discussing (possibly even isolating those ideas to their own threads). I'd also strongly suggest reading through our Community Guidelines before posting. Additionally, it does not help a conversation to reply to combative posts in kind. Flag and move on, please.
I have some pretty similar ideas about getting aliases organized on the tabs actually, and have a few wishlist items for the tech team, but it's gotta be scheduled in their queue. Some people have quite a few aliases set up and it'd be really valuable to have those displayed in a more human-friendly way for sure :)
Part of the reason that those options were removed is because you can use characters from different sets in different contexts/adventures. We would have to continue to re-create these each time individually with each released set, and it's just not a feasible practice. The way we create these sheets now makes them less dependent on the adventures themselves.
Hey there! I don't believe we have anything public from last year, but this page has some sneak peeks of what we're cooking up this year. You may also want to check out our PaizoCon blog posts for past years and recaps. :)
Removed a post. Subscriber status is irrelevant, and debating someone's purchase history (whether with Paizo or their FLGS) just isn't a line of discussion we want to open up. Also, we're unraveling at the seams here and going into a topic that probably should go in it's own thread, so we'll be locking this one.
Asking the question is more appropriate in one of the ACG threads. We'd also prefer not to host polls, which will inevitably bait other posters, concerning the speed at which our staff is able to complete work. Additionally, utilizing the Website Feedback forum or email@example.com is preferred for these kinds of questions in the future.
Yeah, no, I pretty much think it's probably best to just drop this issue. Seems Paizo doesn't want to own up and explain why they changed this for no reason (not blaming Mark) and I'm probably pushing the limits on getting a 3-day ban for posting this as it is.
Just a quick moderator note: We don't make a habit of suspending people just for expressing opposing opinions or dissenting opinions about Paizo, and take suspensions fairly seriously (and if this is a concern you have, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org). However, I'd say that this thread isn't the one to express those opinions, since it's an Off-Topic thread for asking Mark questions for fun, and would suggest another thread for these comments. Let's keep this thread firmly centered around the spirit in which it was created, please. :)
Locking this one. We've got discussions about the status of errata in a few different places right now, and I think referencing those threads is going to be more productive than taking bets on how quickly our staff can work. We hear the issue and understand where this comes from, but are not confident that this is really needed.
Removed a baiting post. This kind of conjecture is really not appropriate.
I should clarify that my earlier post was simply to indicate our general policy concerning the logistics of actual distribution of an errata document/implementing errata into our online formats and its announcement. I'm really not in a position to provide further detail or elaborate on this particular release (because my job has a very specific focus in this process). Sorry if it came out sounding otherwise.
