Round 4 Rules wrote:
An author may not post in his or her own submission thread other than to acknowledge feedback and to encourage people to vote for his or her submission. Violating this rule may result in disqualification, in the sole discretion of the judges and/or Paizo. Contestants can post in the threads of other contestant's villains, but are cautioned that the public is watching what they do and say.

I know on previous rounds we've been posting in our own threads once voting has ended to respond to comments and questions. But the rules this round seem to say we cannot do this any more, even after voting.

So can we get some clarification on this? I'd like to respond to some comments, but don't want to get DQ'd (assuming that I advance to the next round, which is not a given) if the rules have changed.

Thanks.

(I notice some people have already begun posting - I'm not saying this to catch you out, I just want to join the posting frenzy!)

I don't know the rules, but this weird AI thing has completely turned me off. I know what I like and what I like is not contrived.

Weird AI thing?

Artificial intelligence? Artful insinuations? Asinine interrogatives?

Uh oh...I already did *blushes*

Umm, now I'd really love a clarification about this.

Edit:
I have some kind of a feeling that it is Ok if you post. In my judges comments, Clark liked some elaboration on a few design choices, and the only way to do that would be to post after the voting is over.
I know, pretty weak hint...but at least a hint :P

AND: I'd love to read your post!

I read Christine's as well and posted a bunch of things in my thread. I don't think I saw that "don't post at all, even after voting is over" rule. That would certainly be a change from past rounds.

Ummm oops? Well, I guess you do what you do and whatever happens happens.

The paragraph you quote from the Round 4 FAQ isn't new - it originated in the Round 3 Rules!

So I'd say that nothing has changed, and it only applies while voting is taking place. No-one was disqualified last round, after all...

Yeah, I just got a little nervous. But I'm a sucker for peer pressure, so if everyone's doing it, why not?

(And I keep forgetting that Paizo is 9 hours behind me, so when I ask questions like this, everyone there is asleep in their beds.)

Feel free to post in your own threads now that voting is over.

That is the intent here.
