Pathfinder Society Special and Overseer GMs

So I am currently working on adding a Pathfinder Society Special to our local schedule and I have two (Three?) questions on Overseer GMs.

Do I report Overseer GMs for GM Credit (And Special credit) on the Pazio site, and if so should I report him/her as a GM with no players.

Does an Overseer GM get GM credit towards a character?

I've heard this two ways, as yes, the overseerer gets credit ... one area took extra players from tables and gave the overseerer a full table and another just reported and empty table

and yes, GM credit for the overseerer if they want it

Yes, just report an additional table with the overseer as GM and no players. That should allow the overseer to get GM credit without causing any issues in the system.

PFCBG is generous. As it stands there is no credit what-so-ever for Overseer GMs.

I Just found this, but does it stand?...

I blame all my involvement in D&D/AD&D/3.5/LG/4E/LFR/PFRPG/PFS on the Graet Fabog!

Dumb question time: Overseer GM...is that just another term for the event coordinator or is it something completely different? Thanks!

Craig,

The Specials, like "Blood Under Absalom", or "Race for the Runce-Carved Key" have a bunch of tables playing simultaneously. Each table has it's own GM, and then there's somebody "up front" providing narrative context for the next fight, and distracting the players while the table GMs get out the next map and hunt for miniatures.
