    I wanted to show the SCP I made, but my application got declined. Perhaps it was a little too whimsical. I'm trying again, though...
    did you use the chocolate rain?

    read through all the material meant for new users. AFAIK they swap around which parts has the password in, as well as what the password is.

    Application declined again. Give me a hand here, people.

    How's this: "I'm a XX year old XXXXian citizen. I am absolutely dazzled by the sheer magnitude of great ideas posted on this website. I would love to contribute in the best ways possible."

    Password? Seriously.    That's pretty cool, though.   

    I reread everything and I found out the password is not "chocolate rain" anymore. Embarrassing, because I did just send another application prior to finding it, containing the old password. Well, I'm off to read about more SCP's until the good doctors decline my application so I can try again.

    all I did was say that I had lots of time on my hands, I liked to write, and the password. I might have put my age or location as well.

    just lay it on the line; say why you want to join, how you'll contribute, maybe some other bit of your information (like age, name, city), and the chocolate rain. that's it. the only reason they'd deny you then is if you say that you live on the moon or something.

    An SCP television show could take so many formats. It could be about agents or about researchers, or the shit that higher-ups deal with, or even about the SCPs themselves. It could be comedic or totally serious. The possibilities are wonderful.
    Or, like futurama manages to pull off, it can be all of those!

    You kind of said the same thing twice here.

    When introduced to fuel, and if enough workable material is nearby, SCP-720 will activate, and remain active until it exhausts its fuel, its workable material, or both. It will remain in this state until it runs out of fuel or exhausts the available material.
    But otherwise interesting, if not mundane. Not that that's a bad thing, too many SCPs are "evil destroy everything."

    In my opinion, the only way that an SCP should be able to get a spot before it, is to kill the previous SCP with it's own hands/claws/powers.

    You guys ever watched this show? I watched it when it first came out because I loved the camp and the premise. I saw the discussion about a Foundation (and another thing, does anyone think that it sounds better when referred to as "The Foundation" as opposed to "SCP"?) TV show and it popped into my head.

    I got in and published. Feel free to check for grammatical errors before they find them.

    SCP-1214: "The Conga Line"
    http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1214

    Remember it is my first SCP. So bash in my greenhorn skull as hard as possible. So far, it's not going well.
    Q: Why didn't you go ask for opinions on #site19 @ synIRC or post that in a sandbox for us to read before putting it on the wiki?

    A: I might have been a little bit too enthusiastic.

    You are right. In less than 24 hours, the downvote got to -12. So, to all people who want to help me regain my honor, be sure to check the sandbox here:

    http://scpsandbox2.wikidot.com/drprophet
    I don't know if you're still looking for grammar help and general nitpicking but here you go.

    The second sentence is incomplete, and the information therein presented seems unnecessary.
    When describing the culture, uncertain is a poor word to use. A better one might be unidentified or mysterious. The list should be indented, and the word avoids should not be underlined. The diameter of the string should not be discussed in uncertain terms, especially when a trailing zero is added. The ellipsis at the end of the paragraph is bad form, I'd replace it with a full stop. The first sentence of the next paragraph is incomplete.

    The conventions for describing magnitudes keeps changing throughout the article, and in this particular sentence you change twice. Notice in the fourth paragraph of the description the name of the number and unit are spelled out in full outside the bracket, and then the number and short form of the unit are given within the bracket. Remember that units are always pluralized unless preceded by a 1. In keeping with the rest of the article, the measurements in the fifth paragraph should be so written:

    The metal ball masses one hundred fifty grams (150 g), and is forty-five millimeters (45 mm) in diameter.

    At the end of the paragraph, there is an allusion to some sea monster SCP. I'm not sure it's really necessary but in any case, [CLASSIFIED] should be either a black bar or [DATA EXPUNGED]. The black bar is to denote a classified word, data expunged would indicate several sentences. For the sake of brevity I'd simply write the list as otters, dolphins, and SCP-████. Furthermore, the term contradicting is not an adjective. Contradictory, on the other hand, is.

    The "very same day," while it indicates the object's affinity for fish, is not something I'd use in a report. For the sake of completeness it might help to describe exactly how much fatty acid is required.
    The phrase, "by the means of," is kind of clunky, "by means of," on the other hand, will do perfectly fine.

    I also fail to see the appeal of the SCP. I'm mildly curious as to why it likes fish or does that conga line stuff. I recommend you provide some reason for this, or at the very least an assurance that there is a reason.

    The only effect that would not have existed at the time is the mercury looking one. As for the globe I think it would be possible, look at star wars. Sorry I didn't consider that would break the immersion, just thought an ambiguous blob suited the role of an unspecified SCP and was visually stimulating. If anything I guess the Foundation had more advanced technology at the time? Thanks for the feedback.

    The shados behind the text, the resolution of the text etc etc. I'd also recommend trying to make modern media and not old media it doesn't fit the SCP image.

    It does in a way make sense. If both sides read that they are under imminent nuclear threat, they will retaliate with like force. A nuclear "chain reaction" of sorts could very well lead to the end of civilized society. It's not necessarily the planet itself cracking in half, but still something that should be avoided.

    So this is what I've done so far.


    What do you think? I always pictured a lot of the things in the Foundation as being stuck in the late 70's, so Ill begin by making the files look like they are being recovered from that era. Also whats your take on the little "intro song" for the foundation, 70's enough? Really hope people will like this. Planning to make the first actual file by the end of next week.
    OP'd.

    I'd also like links to any cool SCP spinoff stuff (like the statue breach game whatever it's called and the infinite staircase) so I can link dat shit in the OP.

    Kthx
