I'm currently reading through the FAQ and haven't even found the chocolate rain :saddowns:
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.
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.
OR a lot of other things. Don't tell you have writing prowess, don't tell your name (Specifically mentioned), don't be lyrical, don't be poetic, don't, in general, put any extra shit there.
How did you get a pre-1000s slot? Did the previous 720 get terminated?
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.
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.
Is there any type of SCP foundation merchandise available? I would just love to have an SCP symbol patch on my lab coat in college next year : )
The foundation is crowdsourced and so is your merchandise if you want it.
Next video out, what do you think?
It's a video using loads of effects to seem like an old video but uses even more effects that didn't even exist during that time.
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.
I don't like the "END OF WORLD" part, also I think you meant kmh instead of 1.6 kph
