      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.

Well, It's possible I'll be ready by then. I've been working on my next chapter this week but it's not quite done. The whole switch through me off. If there's room, there's a good chance I'll be ready, but if we have a full load of 7 again just put me off til next week.

That's four so far. I'll cap it at five this time 'round--seems like it's going to be a somewhat quieter week anyway?

I'm wanting to join in, so I'm rushing to finish this chapter I'm working on. How would I go about submitting it?

Fifth and final, then.

For now, here is an explanation of how the group works from the TWG archives. We're working on a modified version but we're just tweaking the organization, so this should still tell you everything you need to know.

Let me know if you have any questions. Also, shoot me a PM to let me know what email address to use. :)

I couldn't tell from the rules, maybe I'm being stupid but do you have to submit a chapter to be on the email list? As I'd like to read and critique some of the work that's being discussed so far, as just from the topic descriptions and titles I've gotten pretty interested. However I don't have anything to submit. Maybe in a few weeks as I've been writing up some ideas for a book recently, but as of now, I've got nothing.

You're welcome to start reading and critiquing right away, even if you don't have anything to submit right off the bat--just send me a PM with the email address you'd like to use for the list.

And you know, I don't think it was addressed specifically. I'll be sure to revise that once we're done moving the rules over.

So, I'm horribly late, and I don't have time to submit. Someone else can take my spot, but it's kind of Thursday already...

So it's just Robert so far for Monday Sept. 5th, am I right? Sorry, folks--I'm a little scattered right now.

I WILL get the rules and stuff moved over ASAP, but probably not before Monday, alas. (I have to clean and disinfect my whole house before my puppy, who contracted a serious illness, recovers enough to come home from the vet--which might possibly happen tomorrow. So, see, I'm not just blowing you guys off. :P)

Guys, I'm afraid I'm going to be more or less MIA for the next few days. I'll try to sneak online at a couple of points and maintain the weekly submission list, but I'm in the bridal party for a wedding this weekend so this is likely the last chance I'll get to come online until Monday. Sorry about that.

Hey guys, I have been looking for something like this, more close nit and tight group when it comes to reading/writing/critiquing everyone's work. I tried going to the email list thread but apparently that was from the forums that got hacked. Is there another way to get onto the list or join the group?

I posted the link to the old email list thread because I haven't yet had a chance to move the rules over to the new forum. That thread on the read-only forum is actually a pretty accurate description of our current policies--we're just housed in a different forum now. You still join the list the same way, by PMing me with the address that you'd like to receive submissions at, and I'll add you to the list. That won't be right away, though; this is the last chance I'll have to come online until Monday, I'm afraid.

Can I submit today? I use the same email address from the old forum, right?

Yes, same address, and yes, go for it. Liven the place up a little. :)

I have something I'd like to submit the next time an opening comes up (is it Monday or Tuesday now?) Can I submit the first few chapters or should I just do one at a time? They are only about 1500 words each.

Thanks,

Lee

It'll be Monday again from now on. And go ahead and submit whatever you feel most useful--if you want to submit the first three chapters, say, that's fine, as long as you're somewhere in the ballpark of 4k. =)
