      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.

Hello and welcome to Reading Excuses!  Have you read @Silk 's wonderful introductory post? It explains how this online writers' group works. You'll need to send a private message to @Silk to get on the mailing list, and make at least one critique post before submitting work.

Generally speaking, it's in an author's best interest NOT to post story pieces directly to public forums, as this can be considered "publication" and impact a story's ability to be marketed to other venues later. It's also difficult for some people (like me!) to read long blocks of unbroken text in the forum format. With a .doc or .rtf, I can format the text the way that's best for me to read and reference later. 

Again, welcome, and I look forward to seeing your story in critique! :)

Welcome @Daryldor, and thanks @industrialistDragon and @kaisfor jumping in!

Yes, the thread that they've mentioned should lay out everything for you. It looks like a lot of information, but once you get into the hang of formatting and submitting according to our guidelines, it's really not too onerous to maintain, and the rules are designed to make things easier for everybody to read and critique while protecting the intellectual property of the writers.

Please give the thread that @industrialistDragonlinked a read, and then I'm happy to answer any further questions you have--as I'm sure anyone else on the RE forum would be. We try to be a pretty helpful group!
