FAQs about the FAQ

Is the WOTFAQ updated for Book 10, Crossroads of Twilight?

Yes, it is. Share and enjoy.

Yay! And hey, I have lots of theories! Should I email them to you?

While I welcome comments or general questions about the WOTFAQ, I would prefer that you do not email theories to me.

The WOTFAQ is (almost) exclusively based on discussion in the Usenet group rec.arts.sf.written.robert-jordan, with the emphasis on "discussion". If you have a thought or theory about WOT that you think should be in the FAQ, you are invited to join the newsgroup and post your theory there. If it generates sufficient discussion and/or consensus, it will probably get added to the FAQ during the next update.

As a general policy, I do not accept or use theories which have not been thoroughly discussed in the newsgroup, so emailing them to me alone is basically a waste of your time.

The one exception to this rule is suggestions for the "Sources" section. If you have a real-world reference or parallel to WOT which is not in Section 3 of the FAQ, feel free to email it to me (with "Sources" or something similar in the Subject line) and I may include it next time around, though you can of course post it on the newsgroup instead.

(If you are unfamiliar with Usenet and newsgroups, this is a pretty good place to start.)

Cool. Now can I read this thing already?

Knock yourself out.

Enjoy, and thanks for reading the WOTFAQ!
