  • 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? =(

      Loading editor
    • 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.

  • Hello. Im new here though Ive routinely used the Stormlight Archive wiki. I have attempted on several occasions to edit the bibliography section of a character but each time I receive an error. Was hoping you or someone else could correct it.

    Under Ishikk's bibliography it states he made a final question/comment regarding an individual he has been searching for at the request of three foreigners. That question/comment was actually made by Grump, not Ishikk. This also impacts the note section of Ishikk's page as the note is incorrect. It should read that one can infer the foreigners have nicknamed Hoid "Roamer" due to his activities involving worldhopping.

    If you are unable to correct it, I will attempt again at a later date. Tha k you.

    For reference this particular scene occurs during the first interlude of The Way of Kings.

    Regarding the error associated to your profile. The word "ask" is hyperlinked under your introduction section. It is meant to bring the individual selecting it to this message wall, but actually redirects to a TejrindeShahrizai (no space between 1st and last). You have a comment from me and one other there but Im sure you were unaware. While at that message board if you select profile a message is received stating the account does not exist or has never been utilized.

    • I read your concerns with regard to Ishikk and corrected them. I hope you'll approve of such. (Most of this site was created years before I became Admin.) With regard to your error notice, I've discerned no reason as to why you should've received such. Concerning my alternative profile, I never created it and have no explanation for its existence.

    • Tej, thank you for the response and your actions. You do an amazing job with the site. As far as my approval, you own this place and need no ones approval or permission. Thanks for what you do to make this such an enjoyable community.

  • Hi, Tejrinde Shahrizai!

    The Stormlight Archive wiki was included in the now-retired Book wiki footer. A new fantasy literature footer has been created, and I was wondering if I could place it on the main page, since this site meets all the new requirements for inclusion.

    Best regards,

    Raylan

    • Raylan,

      Please DO place the Stormlight Archive wiki on the main page of the fantasy literature footer! Thank you so much for contacting me and for your inquiry!

  • Thank you for the edits to my contribution. I'm new to this wiki, and I only have the audio books, so I don't know the right spelling all the time. I'll try to learn from your updates and continue to contribute.

    • Hey, thanks for your contribution! I only added some links, capitalization and a reference. Please continue adding information to the site! I'm only one person and can't provide everything. If ever you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm more than happy to help in the best interest of the site. Enjoy!

  • I was rereading words of radiance and it hit me that Rock may have met hoid while in the Horneater Peaks. In this passage,

    “Lunu’anaki,” Rock said, “is god of travel and mischief. Very powerful god. He came from depths of peak ocean, from realm of gods.”
    

    “What did he look like?” Lopen asked, eyes wide. “Like person,” Rock said. “Maybe Alethi, though skin was lighter. Very angular face. Handsome, perhaps. With white hair.” Sigzil looked up sharply. “White hair?"

    Sigzil recognizes the white hair from hoid's true appearance because Hoid was Sigzil's master at one point. Thought this may be important to rock's history, maybe not.

  • Tejrinde, having previously been the main admin of the site until some life circumstances came about meaning I had little/no time to help on this site. (I only actually got made admin becase previous administrators had actually left and not used the site so myself and Mbg2 became admins) However after a 3 year absence I may be able to start doing a few bits here and there, not to the level I was previously doing. However in those years of absence you seem to have taken on the epic task of running this place, and done a great job of it. So rather than step on your toes I thought I'd say hi and ask where you most want assistance on this site.

    I have noticed I still actually have my admin roles, but am happy to hand them back if you prefer this it your project and site now.

    • Stevros, I recognize your name and know that you were indeed an admin of this site before my time. Just as you were, so too was I made an admin because previous admins had left the site. It's been pretty much a single-handed effort since then, with the occasional assistance of short-lived contributors. I appreciate any assistance you're able to provide, though I think it best if you were to relinquish your role as admin. In the past couple of years I've developed a visual format for the site that I believe has heightened its 'look' and I want to maintain this quality.

      As to that which needs addressing on the site, references are either absent or lacking on many pages; any in-book references you might provide would be greatly appreciated. Beyond that, any additional information you might provide on pages that are stubs would be most welcome.

      Glad to have you back!

        Loading editor
    • Ok, I'll probably have a look through the stub pages first as it's been a little while since I last read the books so referencing would take a lot longer if I can't roughly rmember the chapter, but am planning a re-read soon so will get on with those after.

        Loading editor
    • That sound great, Stevros. I truly appreciate any assistance/contributions you may provide.
