We've done some troubleshooting on this and have narrowed it down quite a bit but still haven't found the particulars. I'll spend a good amount of time tomorrow trying to figure it out. This is likely related to the same thing that's happening occasionally with avatars. With aliases if you reload the page once or twice, it should show up. With avatars, you'll have to go back and click the button again.
Can you start a different thread for that. It's a completely different thing.
We have some speed improvements that will probably be coming sooner rather than later but not this week. When we have a lot of spammers, they end up using a lot of resources, often quite a lot because they are automating a lot of stuff. That's largely what happens during the weekend when things get slow.

Corgi's have far better hearing than many dogs and their sniffer, while still pretty good, isn't as great as many other dogs. Also, some sort of squeeze ability would not be out of the ordinary. Our dog loves to squeeze into the weirdest lowest places. She'd hide under the couch if there were more than 3 inches to do it in.
Thumbs up. =)
We take security pretty seriously here but a lot of our site is public and searchable. When you are viewing things that basically everyone can see we don't use https. Encryption used to take up a significant portion of the CPU and while that's no longer the case, really, we have a lot of legacy code to go through and change all that. Currently, when you go to My Downloads or sign in or are checking out, all of that goes through SSL(TLSv1.2 technically). So that information is safe.
Thanks for letting us know, though.
If it makes you feel better, we're seeing a similar post frequency and traffic on our end. We also had a humble bundle that brought a few people in and might have had an uptick. Might be that conversations are a little more spread out with Starfinder be added. Could be a lot of different reasons it feels different but cursory glances show posts about once a minute-ish with PBP coming in around 2 to 3 per minute.
Well, that's the thing. I use firefox myself and am not seeing anything like that. I'll look further into it and see if I can see a reason.

I've pushed an interim possible fix for the sessions logout issue while we figure out a better permanent solution. It has definitely logged everyone out BUT that should be the last time for awhile. Thanks for your patience on this one. It was not a solution I wanted to implement over the long weekend without being able to watch it extensively.
Were you coming in via an RSS or Atom feed, per chance?
I have wanted to create a natural attack (claws) Bloodrager with the Fey Bloodline but would've had to go Crossblooded to get the claws...not anymore! The only concern I have about the Hag-Riven archetype (Bloodrager) is giving up DR--I like DR for frontliners. Still, I think this is the archetype I will use for that concept.
I like DR too but natural armor is nothing to sneeze at and is really great thematically. I wanted something that would be kind of terrifying to come up against on the battlefield and thinking about this hulking scarred woman with giant claws was great. =)
Intent was really to make it work similar to other bloodlines in that these things only work while raging; to give you something you can do to affect combat when you can't be adjacent to a foe but didn't overlap with hag-riven issues. It's advantageous when you can't reach a foe in a single move or when you have multiple foes and one of your friends a couple squares away is in trouble and needs an easier target.
I personally like to have options, so things that can soften up a particular foe for everyone is pretty great use of a standard action. Situational but not an uncommon situation. I also didn't want a lot of overlap with the Hag Riven.
When I wrote it, I really had the witch hunter from Warlock in mind. Not 100% sure it made it through in translation but that's what I was hoping for. Fun classic movie if you've not seen it.
Yeah I've been trying to slip the Hag Riven into something since the Advanced Race Guide came out. I had this idea for someone who was saved mid transformation and had all these weird hag qualities but hadn't lost her mind yet. The pic for her is utterly terrifying. I think people are going to like the archetype quite a bit. Was really happy to work on those archetypes.
That's kind of concerning, actually. When you run traceroute, it does say:
traceroute to paizo.com (220.127.116.11)
No reason it should be going where it's going.
Site's a little slow, but steady. I think download bandwidth is going to be the biggest problem. Expect it to be a little slow for the first day but as people get their books, should clear right up. We'll see how it goes. I'll be watching things. But pretty pleased with it so far. Kind of expected to get slashdotted for the first 30 minutes or so.
Huh. Weird. I'll take a look at it when I get in on monday. Thanks for letting us know.
I'm headed up to Seattle today to hang out with a friend this weekend. Anybody have any good suggestions for what to do while I'm up there?
My suggestion for touristy crap is to go do the Underground Tour in downtown Seattle near Pioneer Square. There's a great cajun place just around the corner there, Marcela's. The guy that owns it is a transplant from new orleans where he was a host for many years. He picked up right up where he left off with his own place and they do some pretty great food. They do bananas foster at the table and it's worth it to share with a friend or just have it all to yourself.
You can walk around downtown at night and head to the white horse tavern for interesting people and conversation. Or head up to capital hill for some of the more LGBTQI friendly places bars and hole in the walls.
