N N 959, I would hope any guideline from Paizo or the event organizers would be pretty loose and open to individual GM modification.
There is a wide range of play style among PbP gamers, and I think a GM organizing a game should set out the ground rules right at the start for their individual game. If a GM gathers a group with the agreement that everyone posts at a certain rate, then they should also dictate the terms under which a player looses credit or is booted from the scenario. Personally, if I were running a game requiring 1 post per day and 1 on the weekends, I'd boot someone if they hadn't posted in a week and give them credit based on the number of encounters they actually participated in before booting. Now, if someone posts that they have a personal problem that will restrict posting for a week, then they should discuss that with the group as a whole, and probably arrange for some kind of contingent actions. In this day and age, loosing internet at your house isn't a good excuse. A person could take 5 minutes to use a friend's computer, a public wifi spot, or even a smartphone, to update their situation. If someone has a lifestyle or job that can take them away without notice (such as the military) I think that should be stated up front with contingent actions based on lack of posting for a certain amount of time.
