Spoilers in book summaries

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I was hoping to link https://coppermind.net/wiki/Summary:The_Way_of_Kings to someone who wanted a refresher on TWoK without spoilers for anything else; but unfortunately, that summary DOES have some spoilers (at the very least, I noticed that in the Ishikk interlude, that summary reveals the identities of the worldhoppers - something that would be a spoiler for people who have yet to read those other series they're worldhopping from).

But that page is mostly spoiler-free, so it's close. Are the chapter summary pages for the books intended to be spoiler-free? It would be nice if there were, since it's pretty common for people to want a refresher.

(spoiler-free for later books or other series, obviously....)

Book summary pages are intended to only contain spoilers up to the end of that book. If you find something that spoils a later book or other series feel free to fix/remove it.

Personally I think including the identities of those worldhoppers is probably appropriate. That is useful information. But it shouldn't have spoilers for later Stormlight books.

It’s spoilers for other series

If you haven’t read Elantris yet and you see that Galladon is in Roshar it could spoil a bit of it for you 

IE there is no way he dies in Elantris ( same with demoux and boan)

I suppose, but if you haven't read those other series I don't think you'll remember those names. 

I think people generally really want to know the identities of worldhoppers, so I think the benefits of listing them is better than not listing them.
