      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.

Looks like you're the first one to request for Monday (unless I've missed anyone? I'm using a new tablet so still figuring out how to work on this thing), so go ahead.

I'll probably be late doing my final check for requests tomorrow since I'm flying back to Canada mid morning. Just a heads-up. :)

Since there appears to be plenty of space, and I'm back stateside, I'd like to sub, too. Also, I promise to catch up on missed crits.

Three slots open. Going once, going twice...

Going to jump out on a limb, and appologize later if I need to.

If there's room next week, I have a second version of a short story I did way back I'd like to submit, but if more than five people volunteer, I'm perfectly willing to drop out since this would be my third week submitting.

As of yet there are no new member requests, so you guys are looking good for Monday, so far, @rdpulfer, @TKWade and @kais. That's 3 out of 5.

(Oh man, I have totally got the hang of this! :) )

I'd like to put in my name for next week. First time. Submitting a short story I started to write as a joke, but somehow got it to a full 3920 word story.

Hi @SalMonroe, welcome to Reading Excuses.

I don't have time this second to check, so I'll just go ahead and say, remember to send me a PM with your email address so I can add you to the mailing list so that you get the other stories submitted to enable you to critique them in return.

Did you glance through the guidelines? Please do if you haven't, saves most of the questions that we get! :)

I've been a part of the email list for a few weeks, just haven't been submitting until now. Read the guidelines too.

Alright, I think I'm ready to resubmit Rey's First Job on Monday. It's about 5500 words now, so a little on the heavy side if that's alright.

Well, I've changed the short story again, so I could submit for people willing to read a third time. Mainly the beginning and end are different.

Entirely up to you. No shortage of space :) 

(And sorry, I'm still reading the second version! Comments shortly...)
