Hey everyone! The Keepers of the Coppermind have a brief announcement for you!
If you haven't heard, this is a particularly special month for the Coppermind: It's NaCoWriMo! It’s the famous, very well known, National Coppermind Writing Month! Well, maybe you know somebody participating in NaNoWriMo (for those of you taking that challenge, our hats are off to you!)... But if writing 50,000 words of a novel isn’t really your thing, but you want to contribute to the wiki, then this is the challenge for you! Contributions on the Coppermind are generally measured in bytes, rather than words, so anyone who contributes 30,000 bytes (roughly three thousand words) in the month of November will get a special, magical NaCoWriMo award, displayed on your user page for all to see!
Never helped edit the Coppermind wiki before? Have no fear! Editing the wiki is open to everyone because we are always thankful for any help you can give! And it's easy to get started on! There's a whole team of people on our Discord server who are more than happy to help you find an article you're interested in improving, to fix some tricky bit of formatting, or to answer any other question you may have. Fixing mistakes is easy, so don’t worry about messing anything up. Your contributions are invaluable to us, and the best way to learn is through experience!
For large projects, check the Coppermind Claims spreadsheet and make sure the article isn’t already claimed. If it isn’t, then go ahead and add it on there. There are still several items from the June/July Objectives List to work on, as well as many Mistborn-related pages from the TLM Objectives List. But work on whatever pages interest you, whether they be objectives or not! And of course after The Lost Metal is out mid-month there will be a lot of new work to do! As always, we recommend that you stop by our Discord server if you'd like to add something to the list, because coordination goes a long way. Joining Discord is easy, so don't skip it! We’ll be checking the contribution table at the end of the month to find out who gets a shiny new award. Until then, happy editing!
