      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.

  1. Good news! This topic is no longer needed:
  2. I guess it's time to make a thread that should have been done a long time ago. Here I will report to you all about the new thingies that are introduced to Arcanum from the technical side. Without further ado, here's a bomb for you: You can suggest changes to entries in Arcanum. No need to write in a special topic on the forum anymore. Right now, if you are logged in, you can just click "edit" button on the entry you want to fix, and fix it! Remember though, that all changes done by regular users need to be accepted by Arcanists, before they are visible to the public. (For an option to transcribe brand new entries, you still need to wait some time, but I remember about it, and it will be done)
  3. It is planned. You'll see it around New Year I hope.
  4. The mod team just has to play whack-a-mole for some time until they stop just keep reporting, so we can react faster. Currently we have staff online for effectively 24h a day, those posts should never last long.
  5. I think Sixth was weird, but ok. I had to start Warbreaker 2 times, because I got bored on my first try and just stopped reading.
  6. Did you read Alcatraz?
  7. Is that Time Lord language?
  8. Please, please, please, use the report button in such case. We can't be everywhere and so we need your help
  9. I can confirm a way to save WoBs is one of the short range targets. Probably beginning of 2018. I need to finish suggestion system first. Maybe we should post a roadmap of what's coming for Arcanum...
  10. Nope. Journey before destination.
  11. Who knows what lies beyond 32k
  12. The picture of Brandons face slaped on Jesus' picture cracked me up great video! I want more
  13. I'll add that once the review is done, those red markings will turn green and say that the event has been reviewed. Old events aren't pushed through this procedure, so there is no warning nor confirmation about reviewing there. Here's an example of reviewed event: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/127-salt-lake-city-comiccon-2017/
  14. @Chinsukolo I understand what you mean, unfortunately things are complicated. First, we'd need to make sure it's not possible to get the whole book by searching for words like "the" that appear in practically every paragraph. Second, none of us is a copyright lawyer, and the last thing we'd like is copyright trouble. Third, that's not really a problem that Arcanum is meant to solve. We focus on interviews, signings etc. Searching through book content is not part of our goal. There are many things we still need to do in Arcanum, so even if the previous two points weren't there, book search would have extra low priority. If you really want to do something like that, you can try contacting Dragonsteel and ask for their opinion/permission. Then I bet you'll find some willing coder to make it happen. But honesty, my gut tells me that they wouldn't be too enthusiastic about it. Too much risk of leaking the books and publishers might also have their objections.
  15. Hi! We also have a thread here dedicated to talking about those titles: Have fun climbing up the ladder
