      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

Five Love Songs

Yes. Love songs. You heard right.

Anyways, I'm not (usually) one to mince words, so in no particular order, here are some songs that I personally enjoy. They may not be my all-time favorites, but are ones that I think get my point across.

Under Heaven's Skies -- Collective Soul

She Does -- Collective Soul

What I Can Give You -- Collective Soul (Noticing a trend here? :P)

Magic -- Coldplay

Every Night -- Imagine Dragons

Maybe I should have made this just "Favorite Songs Not By Collective Soul". Maybe then other artists would've stood more of a chance. Oh well.

Anyways, one of the reasons I love these songs is that they never talk about physical appearances -- it's never about "omg that blonde chick over there is hawt". I realize that it's kind of unfair to judge an entire art by the relatively few songs that do this, but it's prevalent enough that I find it noteworthy when a song doesn't mention physical attributes (in great detail anyways, there are exceptions to this).

For example, "What I Can Give You" says, in the chorus,

"I can't give you

Treasures only men have made

But what I can give you

No one can ever take away."


Imagine Dragons and Coldplay are fine examples of this, too:

"I'm coming home to you

Every night,

Coming home to you

Every night.

My mind is made up, nothing can change that

I'm coming home to you

Every night."

"Call it magic, call it true.

I call it magic when I'm with you.

And I just got broken, broken into two.

Still I call it magic, when I'm next to you."

Anyways, I might expand this later on, but for now, that's all, folks! Feel free to comment down below.
