  1. I have a question/theory. Is Hoid the end product of the destruction of Adonalsuim? When Adonalsuim shattered and the shards were scattered, was there something left? Perhaps a conscience, even one who, like syl in the first part of the way of kings, knew some things and not others? Or more likely, the same way the powers or ruin and preservation we're parallel(ly?) Connected to the mind/conscience. How preservations conscience was killed buy ruin, but the power still had a form of mind. Could hoid possibly be this subconcience of a dead God without the power and without knowing exactly what he is, but knowing some things like when he said he had to leave in WoR, or giving the coin to Wax?

      You should post these questions on the forums; I don't have a lot of time to respond to direct theory questions. You can use the Cosmere Q&A board: http://www.17thshard.com/forum/forum/81-cosmere-qa/

  4. Guys, fixing the Radiant icons on the main navigation is basically the best thing ever. I am so happy. Thanks @Kurkistan :D

      The Radiant icon link overflowed their boundary and so hitting links on the breadcrumb was difficult.

  5. @ whoever just approved that one kelsier drawing and deleted the zillion duplicates: THANK YOU

  6. If you remove the reputation system, can I have the SQL tables holding the points (with user ids paired with their nicks) so I can make some statistics? :) Like, who gave the most upvotes to others etc.

      The member table probably has too much personal info to give out. Maybe. I don't intend to remove it any time soon.

  7. Resisting the urge to troll you guys is sometimes really hard. Like now.

      RAFO, though you may be able to guess if you look at the news...

  8. My prof docked me points for having some paragraphs that were less than three sentences long. I'm sorry, when did I go back to middle school?

      Yeah doctoral level humanities classes sound like a breeding ground for self-absorbed jerks who have lost touch in reality.

      What class is this? I often write one line sentences as a focus to grab the reader's attention. In fact, I freak out if my sentences are over six lines long. Insanity.

  10. As far as I know only two people switched profiles for April Fool's. It's still really disgruntling me.

      I actually really might reduce the amount you can change display names; I find it pretty irritating. There are some who have used it not for these jokes, for no other reason that to confuse, really. Cough Darnam.

  12. The anniversary of my joining the site passed without me taking notice. Nonetheless, I've now been here for just over a year.

  13. Finally figured out how do change my stupid display name.

      Do try not to go too crazy with it, but I'm glad you found it!

  14. I never thought I'd actually have to pay attention in math.

      Yep, it definitely gets that way ;)

  15. Why does refreshing the Community Index seem so much more important than doing homework?

  17. I just made the best word filters on 17S! I wonder how long it will take for people to figure out what I did. Muwhahaha.

  18. Was trying to have fun with the whole reputation thingy.. Sorry if I offended.... Now back onto other things

  20. Adonalsium for ~0.5 seconds, then Chaos goes and "updates" the rep system. Coincidence? :P

  21. Getting caught up on old threads that I missed is very tedious, to say the least. I've missed a lot...

  22. Can using the letter f to denote a metal's Feruchemical ability stop? Feruchemical iron and Feruchemical steel looks awful. This convention needs to stop.
