      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.

Does anyone know how the reputation system on this website works? If so, could you please help me out? Thanks in advance.

Reputation is based on the number of upvotes or downvotes your posts receive. You give reputation by hitting the up or down arrows to the right of a post. You can give 16 upvotes each day and 2 downvotes. When you begin to accrue reputation, your reputation count on your profile page will change. New "ranks" are gained when you hit preset reputation benchmarks;  these are the gold writing next to your username when you post.

Here, have an upvote. You will get a notification that someone gave you reputation for your post.  You only get notifications when you are upvoted, not when you are downvoted.

Anything else you have questions on that I forgot to cover?

Is there a list I can see that shows all of the ranks and the reputation required to receive them?

Just tried to upvote somebody and got a message that I am not allowed to give reputation to this user.  What gives?

You probably used up your daily upvote limit (16).

That doesn't sound like the upvote limit message; it sounds more like the message I got when I tried to upvote someone on Chaos' Members2 list, which apparently is the rep restriction list.

I didn't know there's no notification for getting downvoted. Any idea if you can find out any downvotes you get?

No, sorry, that's by design. Rep is supposed to be the community average. By hiding this there's way less "OMG you downvoted me HOW DARE YOU", which is exactly what is not supposed to happen. Some people take any downvote, even if it gets averaged out, extremely personally.

Seems legit Chaos. I more wanted to learn if I'm saying things that irritate people so I can learn from it, but I'm comfortable with that. Cheers.

You can pull up your recent posts from your profile and skim for any downvotes.
