      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.

NaNoWriMo is probably part of it, yes. Of course, November is typically just a busy month for everyone. I'm sure things will pick up again in a week or two. :)

I want to make it clear that I was talking about myself and my own failure to send in critiques while submitting no small number of things.

That comment reads pretty catty otherwise. I'm going to make the place less dead because it isn't fair that I'm submitting so much without paying back in.

Alright then. I've fufilled my little obligation and quelled my conscience.

So I'll be submitting this Monday; either chapter four of BMBD, which I've kind of abandoned for now, or the first chapter of The Mortal Coil, the reworked prequel I've moved onto.

Alright, cool.

cool cool cool

Is this where I apply for Reading Excuses?

I read the old thread, but the links on that page sent me to the old hacked forum.

Edit: Nevermind, scrolled up and found the email address. Sorry!

Actually, a PM to Silk would probably have done the trick, but I'm sure you've got his attention now.

Indeed! You'll still have to send me a PM with your email so that I can add you to the list--that way you'll be able to receive other peoples' submissions as well.

(I'm a her, by the way, but hey--details. ;) )

Well, I would assume he as well, but purely based on the Belgariad series....

Anyway, I would like to put my name down, what is the word limit again?

I am afraid to say I have not redrafted the first chapter, but instead have put all criticism (most of it constructive) in a folder for when I have finished the book. I will send the first chapter as well as the second, but purely for those that have not read it yet, and so might get a little lost in what is happening, hope this is OK?

You know, I've often hesitated in the past to use specific gendered pronouns unless I know the proper one for the person when using internet message boards. Your username, for some reason, slipped right past this stage and into my head as a he, and I have no idea why.

This means it will probably happen again. If it does, feel free to remind me again. I can learn most things, eventually...

No worries! For some reason, I'm often read online as male (and not just with this username, though yes, in this case I wondered if it was the Belgariad reference that did it).

I'd like to submit the start of my novel this week. I've written a lot so I'd like to do two chapters at once for a little while, the early chapters are fairly short. Is there etiquette to submitting or does one just mail the submission to the email address?

You send it to '[email protected]' which will send it to every person that has been registered on that list. That is all you really do, the documents should be double spaced (from what I remember) apart from this though, I don't think there is much else to say, apart from warning about violence etc.

I think there is a word count, but I am not sure what it is, although with the lack of submissions at the moment, I don't think people will mind too much, and they are often very lenient with it anyway; I think it is 5k words, but I am unsure, don't hold me to it ;)

Yes, about that.

Guen, Kate, go ahead and submit today if you'd like--it's been a slow few weeks so I'm not too worried about submitting on an off day this time.

Hey Silk,

I know its thursday but is it too late to submit for this week or should I just hold off till Monday?

My reasoning is that I've polished up my first chapter and would like to submit tonight and get the second chapter

submitted for the upcoming Monday. Not sure what the read load is this week so its no biggie.

Anywho...

Thanks,

Thanks,

It's rather late in the week (partially my fault, sorry) so I'm gonna ask you just to hold off until Monday. How long are the chapters? Any chance of submitting them both at once?

ACharles and Rayonn, I'll add you guys to the list for the upcoming week. Kate, you're probably good to go as well, but since you submitted this week I might ask you to hold off if there's a sudden explosion of interest.

@Silk,

Cool. Yea Monday is fine. I can meet the 5,000 something word guideline range for the 1st chapter. I have serious diarrhea of the word processor, and it doesn't help that I divide my chapters into 4ths. Hope this works.

:)

So, from people's responses re: keeping submissions open on January 2, it sounds like we have a few people interested for the upcoming week: Kate, Austin, Asmodemon, and Skyhunter. Am I right so far? Missing anyone who wants to submit?

Shouldn't be a problem. You're the first one to ask. :)
