We really pride ourselves on our web community here on paizo.com. Prior to the 4th Edition announcement by WotC, we were constantly praised for the maturity of our web community and the conversations that we have here. But lately, in this forum in particular, things have devolved.
We expect our users to behave appropriately and intelligently. I don't think that I need to go into huge detail about what inappropriate behavior is, but I can assure you it isn't creating avatars with "vomit" in the title and then proceeding to vomit all over various threads, or any other behavior that is intentionally offensive or aimed at threadjacking or attacking folks.
We don't all have to agree about everything. Continuing lively debate is great. But some of the posts I have seen lately are the online equivalent of holding your breath until you turn blue and then throwing a tantrum. And that isn't what we expect from the paizo.com community. We understand people are emotional about what is happening to our game, but that isn't an excuse to act immature.
I am hoping that you guys can continue to police yourselves as you have in the past. If we can return these messageboards to the place they were before all this nonsense, then I will be happy. But if things don't get better fast, then I will have to get together with Gary, Vic, Erik, Josh, and Jeff and come up with a plan to put moderators in place. And that is something I don't want to do, but I will if I have to.
So continue to have fun. Continue to discuss the things we love in life. But please keep the messageboards civil. 'Nuff said.
