      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.

Hey guys. I was wondering if any email(s) were sent out yet. I might have something to send out if we send it out by the end of day today. If that is the deadline than I can wait until next week. I also am curious to read some of the other stories that are being discussed. Thanks guys!

Are you not on the mailing list yet Raven? If you're not, email Silk, and she'll get you on it. Also, send me a personal message with your email address, and I will send you the two chapters I am currently workshopping.

Wow, really sorry about that. I must have forgotten to add you to the list. Fixed now.

It's no problem. I wasn't sure if I was missing something. Glad it's worked out now though!

Thanks Cynic! I got your email this morning and I am going to start reading it soon.

Anyone else for Monday?

In another week or two, I'll be looking at mine again (just in time for November and Nanowrimo, wouldn't you know). Not this week, though.

Whew. It's been a busy month, what with the computer troubles, school starting up again, and me getting extra duties at my job... I haven't written as much as I'd like. I was hoping to get Jhuz's storyline done by the end of september, but now I'm shooting to get it done before November so I have time for NanoWrimo.

Anyways. I'd like to submit for next monday (the 10th).

I'd like to submit something today. First I want to tinker with it a bit on my lunch break, so it will be this afternoon.

I was wondering if there was an open spot for me to submit a very short story that I made. Any open slots for me?

Go right ahead, even if it's a bit late now. Been a quiet few weeks.

The rules are here for now until I get a chance to move them over. (It's a long weekend this weekend, so maybe? Hopefully? Things keep exploding in my face.) The board has changed servers since those were written and I'd like to reorganize them in a way that makes a bit more sense before posting them here (which is why I haven't done so yet), but the actual content is still accurate.

So, if you're still interested after you've read those, PM me your email address and I'll add you to the mailing list. You're welcome to submit this Monday if you like--just let me know if that's the case--but you don't have to submit right away if you'd rather just wait and do a few critiques first. Completely up to you.

Hey guys, I’m going to be MIA for the next three weeks for both submitting and critiquing. I’m going on vacation to China and I won’t have the time or opportunity to do either while I’m there.

I can see the backlog growing on me already ;)

See you guys in about three weeks.

Good luck and have on your trip Asmodemon!

I would like to submit something on Monday/Tuesday but it's about 6000 words. If that is okay. If not then I can probably split it into two sections. Whichever choice works for me.

Have a good trip, Asmodemon!

Redbeardraven: Go ahead and submit it all at once. The 4k rule is mostly a guideline, and in my experience, people prefer getting longer submissions all at once anyway, rather than split up.

Sorry I've been AWOL, folks. Aside from it being a generally crazy week (grading assignments, hooray) there was an Internet outage in my area recently.

I'm up for Monday.

I've made a rule for myself; if I add to my buffer, I can submit a chapter, but if I don't, I have to wait. I still have about 12 chapters buffer, which is good, but by doing it this way, it encourages me to write, which was my whole purpose in doing this anyway.

Thanks for reading.
