      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. Welcome, MindCanaries! (Do MindCanaries live in the birdhouse in your soul?) Glad to have you. You should come edit the wiki. It's where the real party is.
  2. Though Brandon doesn't really care about pronunciations, he specified at a signing that Jasnah is pronounced like the Greek or Hebrew "J" as a "Y" sound. So: "YAHS-nah". Also, when he says it (transcribing interviews teaches you these things ) it's "KAL-uh-din", not Aladin with a K in front. And he says Szeth as "Szeth". Not sure how else to explain it. It starts with an "s" sound but turns to a harder "z" sound in that same syllable. None of this is earthshakingly crucial to know, but, hey! There you have it.
  3. Haha. My dad used to put on Squirrel Nut Zippers to torture my mom and sister. I liked it though. Currently listening to? Te Mando Flores by Fonseca and Electricidad by Jesse y Joy. I'm... studying for Spanish... really. UPDATE: My roommate put on dubstep. So I guess that now!
  4. Dear Esteemed Sir, First of all, your avatar is awesome. Don Quixote? By Pablo Picasso? This, my friend, is a double Iberian win. (Sorry... I just came from Spanish. Can you tell? ) So: welcome! You should come and edit the wiki. It's fun, promise! Also you should check out the theory threads. They're guaranteed mindblowing. Cordially yours, Chachel
  5. Oh, you people. I'm in JoeST, KChan, and Chaos's circles. I'm a profile photo of a black bear's head. Find me, the thrill of the chase will entertain you. (Ok, so it'll take you 2 seconds.) -Chach
  6. As a fellow ex-AP art student, I can commiserate with how cramming and painting go in a sentence together. Anyway, I also love art and reading (as do many of the other people here, I can attest). As a wiki admin I feel that I should mention that the wiki needs some more love and attention (read: content) and also it would be really cool if you're into fan art at all, to contribute pictures to articles because most of them sorely need them. Welcome, welcome! -Chach
  7. Welcome all! Theorize away. You could even edit the wiki. It's fun. I promise.
  8. Geist does sound really cool, and as a general rule I think borrowing from other languages to fill English's inadequacies is a good thing. However, the problem with 'geist' is that the primary meaning understood in English is 'ghost', and that is not the meaning we want to convey. After all, Shardholders both corporeal and non-corporeal. Sorry, we're sticking with Shardholder.
  9. Aw, thanks. Congrats yourself. Your theories are mindblowing on a regular basis, so Mad or not you deserve promotion. Also I'm very exciting to join the ranks of staff as well. Thank you admins.
  10. Hello darniil! Welcome! Thank you for taking some Coppermind articles under your wing; I know a mindboggling about of work still exists to be done on it, but every edit helps. (Well, at least, your edits have been helpful so far. ) Anyway, feel free to PM me any questions about the wiki. And thank you so much for helping with the wiki! -Chach
  11. The fact that Seons didn't exist before Odium implies-- not necessarily means, mind you-- a causality. I think that the Splintering of what Aona and Skai held led to the creation of Seons, meaning that the Seons are Splinters themselves. I'm thinking they're Aona's Splinters because as magical servants they represent Aona's intent well.
  12. Yes, just thought I'd put in my two cents: I also agree that Shardholder, while not canon, is the most accurate, most concise term we have. Therefore we are using it.
  13. Ha. "RAFO. I’m going to go to dinner, guys." Cracks me up every time.
  14. Hey, sorry, I've been out. Welcome to the wiki, FirstSelector! You've been doing wonderful, wonderful things with the projects you listed on your user page. Yeah, my life is a little crazy right now (but in a good way ) but I do need to format the Brandonothology page: ...and also I'm working on chapter summaries for Warbreaker and Way of Kings, as well as trying to flesh out the basic information in the Way of KIngs pages. So if you ever run out of projects (ha!) I'd be glad to point out a few dozen more. Anyhow. Thanks for all your edits, FirstSelector!
  15. Hahahahaha! I forgot about the old main page. Ah, and didn't there used to be an old "click here" redirect page to get anywhere, or am I making things up? I love the intro in Spanish. Who made it?
