Tress of the Emerald Sea is HERE, and over on the Coppermind Wiki we are in crunch mode! The novel dropped on January 1st for Kickstarter backers and today it is available for anyone to purchase. Between The Lost Metal's release in November and several new books coming in 2023, this is going to be a busy year for the wiki. And we need your help! Veteran editors and newbies are all appreciated!
Thankfully, a large amount of Tress work is really fairly simple! Though there's certainly a few articles that will require more extensive effort, we've got a long list of newly-created, bite-sized articles to fill in! If you've never had the satisfaction of updating a Coppermind article to completion, you've missed out. And we've got a whole buffet of them just waiting for you!
Here's the plan:
We're kicking off the first (and only) official Coppermind Tress Cup, in which we'll be trying to knock out as many Tress-related updates as possible. This competition will run for one month--starting today, Tuesday January 10th, and concluding at the end of Thursday February 9th. You can find the list of objectives here. Put your username in the "Claimed By" column to claim it. We ask that people only claim one article at a time! When you're finished make a note in the "Complete?" column and move on to another objective!
Each objective has been assigned a point value based on how difficult we feel it will be. The goal for each article is to bring it fully to completion. Complete the objective and you get the full point value; partial credit will earn you one point. And the person with the most points at the end of the competition is the winner! All participants will receive a one-time-only Tress Cup Award to show off on their user page, and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will get a special version to mark their accomplishment! And that's to say nothing of the self-satisfaction I can guarantee as well as the undying gratitude of countless Cosmere fans!
Never edited Coppermind before? No problem! It's not hard and we've got plenty of resource to get you started. The most important thing you can do is join our Discord server, where you can get personal help at all hours. From there we can also recommend several guides and examples that will get you started. Just let us know that you're new and we'll give you a warm welcome!
The competition begins NOW! Let's do this!
