  • I was going to add some content to a page, but realized it might be a spoiler to people who haven't finished Oathbringer yet.

    I read on the front page that we were all waiting until January 15, 2018 to post Oathbringer content. Does that mean that we are allowed to post Oathbringer content now?

  • Hello! Thank you for creating/managing this site! I am very excited to review all the material and contribute!

    One question: I was going through the Characters Page here, and I thought there should be categories for Heralds, Knights Radiant, and Unmade. But when I clicked on "Edit," I was unable to edit the page in either the VisualEditor or the Classic Editor. How do you edit this page? Is there a walkthrough that you can point me towards?

  • Hello.

    I received your message on my talk page on Templates Wiki. You might want to look at Template:Ref-Book3. It is different from the other Ref-Book templates such as Template:Ref-Book1 and Template:Ref-Book2.

    I hope this helps. LA (T) @ 01:05, January 18, 2018 (UTC)

  • Howdy! I just wanted to pop in to ask if you could please make a change on this page. I noticed that the image for Gaz is attributed incorrectly. It's actually by Eva D, whose tumblr link is http://eva-d.tumblr.com/. The specific post comes from here : http://eva-d.tumblr.com/post/169386209602/and-since-i-finally-posted-the-au-summary-heres 

    If you would please correct this it'd be much appreciated! Thank you :)

  • While browsing in this wiki, I saw there was no link for Oathbringer. I was hoping this could be fixed to make it easy to get there. Thank!

  • Hello.  I didn't make the updates myself, but why are you undoing all the updates on Evi Kholin's name?

  • Hi I’m new to the wiki and I am a big fan but know little of the hidden lore in the series. I will help where I can but need a teacher to help me learn more about the series.

  • Hi there! My name is Eric, and I'm an admin for 17th Shard and the Coppermind. I see what you are doing on Stormlight Wikia, and I was wondering if you'd like to join forces with the Coppermind, with the upcoming release of Oathbringer? There's so much work to do, wikiing all of this stuff, that duplicating effort seems to be a real waste. The editing community isn't super big, after all!

    At the Coppermind we pride ourselves in having all the articles for every Brandon Sanderson book, especially Stormlight, where we have 1027 specific Stormlight articles (and that is excluding chapter summaries). We extensively cite things (our Shardblade article has 145 citations) and have many useful templates to make articles look great. We also integrate a lot of art. Obviously you are very skilled yourself, and it'd be awesome to join forces :) 

    For Oathbringer, we are preparing a list of new articles and articles that need to be updated. In addition, another admin generates a list of terms so that we do not miss any new articles. We think this will make the work of Oathbringer a lot easier. 

    I hope we can work together! Please email me at eric@17thshard.com or otherwise join the Coppermind Discord (https://discord.gg/KEv3fhN). We'd love to talk to you. If not, no worries, but I wanted to see what you think.

  • Hello Tej.

    As you're the admin here, I thought it would be proper to inform you that I am interested in heavily contributing to the Stormlight Archive Wiki. I've read the two books at least seven times now, and feel I can add to the wiki in a beneficial manner. Are there certain guidelines you'd like followed, or can I edit as I see fit, so long as the edits are consistent with the structure/content/etc of the wiki in general? I think most of my edits will be expansions and general improvements of existing articles, though I feel I could add articles as the situation warrents. In particular, I would like to show you what I can do with Dalinar Kholin's page, as it seems to need expanding and cleaning. I assure you my edits would be professional and informative.

    This is such a great series, and I would love to be a part of the community, however large or small.

    • You are most welcome as an informed contributor, Wyhm! I appreciate that you feel you can add to the wiki in a beneficial manner. For the most part, you can edit as you see fit, but there are some "structural" guidelines to follow: first, once a link has been established on a page, it need not be repeated again on the same page. On character pages, some of these links are established in the infobox. (Check the edit's I made to Dalinar's page after you'd added content to it.) Further, references to existing novels are very much needed on many pages; this wiki was created initially by others who eventually left it to me. Also, if you feel you can add articles as the situation warrants, please do so! However, I have the Edgedancer chapter summaries written, but have yet to implement them. I will attempt to do so this coming weekend as Oathbringer is to be released next week! Lastly, if you have questions about formatting, please don't hesitate to ask them of me. I'm committed to representing fan art here, and the artwork from within the books (but won't reveal such imagery until the books are released). Thank you, so much, for contacting me! I'm happy to have you aboard!

    • About the only thing I know I need help with is how to cite stuff. I know where a lot of stuff happens in the books, but I also know it's best to cite these sources when I refer to them in the wiki. Is there something that can help me cite this stuff, or can you give me a rundown?

        Loading editor
    • There are formats created by my predecessors for referencing written novels. Please utilize these formats; they look like this: [1], for example. (If you're not familiar with them, don't worry about it; I'll alter them where necessary) Please don't hesitate to continue asking questions!

  • Are pages not allowed to be added/updated until after the print date of the book they're found in? =(

    • Exactly. Oathbringer is officially released 11/14/17. Any information in the pre-release chapters on tor.com cannot be referenced; the print version of the novel may read differently. Alice Arneson (one of Brandon's beta readers) has said as much. Thanks for waiting until after the release date to update/create pages for the new book.
