I was being 100% facetious. I also just finished Star Trek: Insurrection last night (just... wat) so my grip on humor is a little :\ and I kinda want to toss the entire cast of characters into a very dark pit... maybe with fire... and endless falling... possibly in an abandoned mine...
THEY TOOK HIS BEARD OFF WAT WHY UGH GO AWAY
Asking the hard questions this morning in the office...
Katina There's a character named Dr. Crusher? Does she have giant robot clamps?
Yeah, that would be really handy, provided it doesn't overload you Mods :3
I guess I should clarify that the intent with that feature is that the notes/feedback attached to a flag is not a dialogue where moderators respond to the user directly. Even with that feature, we would encourage folks who are spotting larger or more nuanced issues/questions to email firstname.lastname@example.org/post to this subforum (as appropriate).
This is a great question! New flagging options are pretty deeply embedded into the forums architecture, and the Tech Team is quite backed up and unlikely to be able to implement this before we decide how to we're going to treat political threads going forward. However, I feel the following might be more effective:
I am curious to hear what folks this about this—from my perspective it seems more user friendly than a call to open up an email app/tab to contact us at our inbox, and that folks might be more compelled to explain their reasoning behind flagging (occasionally we come across "Breaks other guidelines" posts that are fairly ambiguous).

Do we know when the singles will be on sale? I don't want to miss the ridiculously short timeframe, like I did last set. I only need one more candleabra and I'm happy. Ill probably have to eBay my second Book of the Damned, to pay for it, but I need two candles.
They will go on sale tomorrow and be on sale until 12/31.*
*Of course with the caveat that that is not a guarantee that certain singles will not sell out quickly or that all will be available during that entire timeframe.
To clarify my reasoning behind the nomenclature: the subforum also houses 3PP supplement discussion and general D&D chatter. There is enough discussion surrounding 5E that the former forum was less-than-aptly titled and it seemed only reasonable to scoot the threads into a new home :)
Removed another series of posts. Again, threads soliciting for advice tend to do better when people actually provide advice or share their experience in a productive way. Unless you're posting with the intent of doing so, let's leave unrelated commentary out of the discussion or take it to another venue.
Sure! I've ported all threads modified since September 2016. We can chip away as we have time, but if you find more nuanced threads that might be-less-than easy to identify by their thread titles for us to move, feel free to flag it.
Moved to a more appropriate subforum and removed a series of posts/their responses.
Folks, when a thread is soliciting for advice on our forums, regardless of it's location within the forum structure, let's stick to trying to lend a hand to the OP by offering helpful input or sharing your experience productively. By derailing the thread with arguments re: sensitivity or "political correctness", it takes away the opportunity for the resulting discussion to be a potential resource for folks looking for similar advice in the future. Additionally, we welcome a wide variety of gamers here and trying to one-up each other to determine who is right about what the threshold for offensiveness is (including using "SJW" as a pejorative and calling each other trolls) helps nobody.
Due to an increase in negatively charged posting surrounding the recent US election cycle, and the amount of time required of our staff to address these posts (as well as conflict between community members), we've made the decision to put political threads in the Off-Topic subforum on pause. While we regroup to consider how we handle political threads moving forward, active and new political threads will be locked. Our goal with our forums is to create a space that is both welcoming and productive for gamers to come together, and at this time, political threads are driving a wedge into that space. We do not have an ETA for when political threads will resume, but will make that information available once we've made decisions regarding their status.
Removed a number of posts and their responses, either for off-topic commentary, derailment, personally abusive statements, or intentional baiting others in the conversation. Folks, after an incredibly contentious electoral cycle and the amount of work put in by our staff during that time to moderate discussions (as well as conflict between community members), we've made the decision to put political threads in our Off-Topic subforum on pause for the time being. We are regrouping to consider how we handle political threads moving forward, and do not have an ETA for when they will continue. Our goal with our forums is to create a productive space for gamers to come together, and at the moment, these threads are driving a wedge into that space. A sticky will be posted in this subforum indicating as such shortly.

Flooding the flagging system like this does not help. Please, to improve our ability to address pressing issues, do not intentionally mis-flag posts.
Removed some baiting and less-than-civil comments and their responses. Folks, the paizo.com forums aim to be a space where gamers can come together in a fun and friendly environment. We've asked on more than one occasion in this very thread to decouple the frustration at the current state of affairs with vitriol aimed at specific posters in the conversation. At 142 pages and over 7,000 posts, we understand that people are passionate and invested in discussing this election and it outcome, but it's likely the time to let this particular thread come to a close, and break out topics into new/separate threads of conversations.
Thank you for the information. We'll investigate.
Last night I relapsed with self-harm. I thought about killing myself. But I decided that I gotta be here for my friends who are going to be affected just like me, though. I'm so so so scared for the next 4 years but I'm hopeful for solidarity. We gotta protect each other, because obviously not many other people are gonna protect us.
189birds, the well-being of our community members matters to us. I'm not sure if you're already aware of these resources, but these are some chats/phone numbers that may be helpful to you:

Generally I'm alerted to these sorts of posts, but Website Feedback or email@example.com work well for this sort of thing.
