  1. Yeah, I've been thinking about this, and I don't think that I have a good answer. Southern tech is still super unclear to me, and I don't have much to contribute to this.
  2. D: Excuse me, Brandon had nothing but good things to say about me in the most recent livestream!
  3. I am curious how you even managed to dig this up Looking throughout the pages, I might get some amount of merch to be shipped to me, but I don't like the (mini)con's COVID protocols, so I think I'll skip on the actual attendance. I hope there will be more release parties / conventions like this one in the future that I can attend.
  4. We have a couple of WoBs coming from Sandertrack director Billy Todd, which he reported verbally to me soon after he got them, and in text to @Kaymyth. Instead of including Facebook Messenger screenshots, I am just going to transcribe them verbatim:
  5. The Arcanum tag system is useful, but not quite 100% polished, so there are some quirks. Let's use this thread to report them. Specifically we are looking for: Duplicate tags. Sometimes, when adding tags to an entry, you might notice that there are multiple tags that express the same concept, but are phrased or spelled slightly differently - for example, both #truthwatchers and #order of truthwatchers exist right now. This is not ideal, and it doesn't happen often, but it does happen, and we'd like to fix things like that by choosing one of these, and updating all the entries using the other one (and then deleting the obsolete tag). Tags without entries. There is no automatic system that cleans up orphaned tags (i.e. tags with no entries under them), so we have to delete those manually. This happens sometimes when we accidentally misspell a tag (which creates a tag with a bad name) or when we learn the name of a new book and have to replace the old placeholder tag with a new one (e.g. right now we need to replace #stormlight 4 with #rhythm of war). Tags with bad names. Sometimes typos and other spelling artifacts sneak into our tags (e.g. #sadeas 10 is a tag that exists now, presumably because somebody wanted to apply the #sadeas tag, and there were 10 entries with that tag, and the count got attached to the tag somehow).
  6. This is all pretty different from the usual process, so I don't know. No harm in asking there though.
  7. Discord is definitely going to be your best bet, it's much more real time. I don't know if anyone has anything planned at this point, but I imagine I and the people I know will set something up and generally move as a single group, with individual people coming and going at times.
  8. Heh, nah, have fun
  9. Who knows, probably not knowing whether to look at Brandon or the camera.
  10. Wouldn't you like to know...
  11. I mean...
  12. I would say that you can cite it as a suggestion. The approval process will likely fix spelling, formatting, and tags, but is highly unlikely to touch the actual content, which is what the wiki cares about.
  13. Moved to the RoW forum and unlocked at @Pagerunner's request - I imagine this will be seeing some updates in the near future
  14. It's news roundup time again, friends! Last we met, we talked about Fortnite Kelsier (who is out of the store now, actually), Cytonic's title reveal, and some Cytoverse novellas. Today's news haul is no less exciting: Tara Spruit's amazing Stormlight tarot deck is back in stock Brandon is launching a new podcast with his friend Dan Wells No announcements were made about future Dragonsteel products, especially not one about a Doomslug plushie Let's go over some details. Tara Spruit's Stormlight Archive® Tarot Card Deck went on sale and was instantly sold out back in March of 2020, and fans who didn't manage to grab a copy on time have been asking for a reprint. Well, some dreams do come true - the deck is back in stock for preorders. Get yours in before the end of June. The card art is absolutely gorgeous, the cards themselves are solid enough, and even the box is neat. Second in our list is a bit of news coming from Brandon's weekly update video from June 7. He and his friend (and partner in shenanigans) Dan Wells are launching a new podcast this Wednesday. The podcast will be much less structured than something like Writing Excuses, and will feature mostly the two of them talking about random, usually pop culture-y, stuff. The podcast is still unnamed, but we should expect to hear about it soon. And finally, from the same weekly update video, comes... well, not an announcement. Nothing was announced. Especially not about the Doomslug plushie precariously balanced on Brandon's shoulder for most of the video. But an announcement is coming in the future, and if one were to guess, something to do with the plushie seems like a safe bet. I personally believe that the cageyness around all of this is because the plushie design is not quite final, so Brandon doesn't want to promise until he is ready to announce something more concrete. And that's the end of our news recap! Join is in the comments or our Discord server and tell us what you think of all of this.
  15. The JordanCon website will offer you more comprehensive answers, but in a nutshell: July 16-18 Membership prices for this year are not known (to me), but in the past they've been around $50 We don't know anything about Brandon's schedule, but in previous cons he's stayed all three days
