    I like the idea, but the D-class narrative at the bottom is rather cliche.

    Shoelaces that always come loose!

    Keter classification.
    That might actually be a pretty good idea for an article, a pair of shoes with shoelaces that come undone at dangerous moments, like if you're walking downstairs, riding a bike or sprinting. There could be tests where they see what part of the shoe causes the effect (like using the laces in a different shoe) and theories upon how they could be use to impede high speed SCPs (because the image of blinking near SCP 173 then seeing it face down in a pool of blood and shit is hilarious to me)

    My friend had an idea for an SCP today but I don't know if there's one like it:
    A window frame that, when a human is thrown through it, acts like a portal and teleports the person to the nearest 5th-floor window or opening of similar height while conserving their momentum.

    Well the ones who carry our procedure 110-Montauk last pretty long, they're even exempt from monthly terminations.

    OK, this one's just off the top of my head. If it meets with general approval, i'll make the effort of signing up and submitting it:



    Could use some work here and there, but not bad for half an hours procrastination...




    That means http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-387 should be upgraded to Keter as well. Have you eve stepped on lego? Now imagine it following you around the house.

    I love machine SCP's. They're just so mysterious. I think 'Someone made this. But how did they make it so special? How did they make it so... impossible?' Like the Non-euclidian desktop pc. Or, the trans-dimensional vending machine, which is my favorite scp. It's just so mysterious and makes me think.

    I doubt it, since they have a thing against repurposing or linking up with other creepypasta things.

    I know for a fact that an attempt to introduce a Holder item as an SCP was nuked before, and I'd eat my left hand if there's never been someone who got slapped for trying to put in Slender Man somewhere.

    Ah ha...well, what's their policy on drawn images? I was sniffing around the web for an image for an SCP I was thinking of, and I found something, but its artwork rather than a picture. If I used it and slapped "artist's interpretation of SCP XXX", would they nuke it?

    If I recall correctly they're not terribly big fans of "Artist's Interpretation"-style pictures on reports either. The idea for that one I think is that the straight-laced Foundation would either go with actual photos or nothing at all.

    Although I have to admit; I have always wanted to write an SCP about a living version of that guy from Edvard Munch's Scream, and then make the document picture his painting with the note "Artist's Rendition" underneath it. Never gonna actually do it, but the idea by itself makes me smile every time.

    Ok, now, before we even get onto writing stuff it's important that you all know what to add as a picture. Now, I know some of these things may be scary to photograph, but I swear to god, if I see one more fucking artists's depiction, I don't… It's just… No. Just… put in a picture or don't put something in at all, okay?

    Its pretty damn convincing, being professional art. I'm not really sure if it would pass as a photo or not.

    Opened up http://watchout4snakes.com/Creativit...domPhrase.aspx again, got the prase "tidy offense". This is the SCP I wrote after that phrase.


    Item #: SCP-XXX

    Object Class:
    Safe

    Special Containment Procedures:
    SCP-XXX has no specific containment procedures at this time. Research is ongoing to determine if SCP-XXX has any detrimental effects.

    Description: SCP-XXX is a collection of generic "green army men", numbering 50, including one "commander". The collective of SCP-XXX are identical except for a single notable difference, instead of weapons and other military tools and such, all of them carry various cleaning tools. Said cleaning tools include vacuum cleaners, feather dusters, squeegees, and pressure washers. The commander can be noted out of the group due to his slightly darker shade of green, and him being the only figure who will move when under observation, whether human or not. The effect of SCP-XXX is manifested when orders are given to the commander (Now referred to as SCP-XXX-1) as how a commanding officer would give orders to a subordinate.

    When orders are given to SCP-XXX-1 giving them a location of a room, the other 49 members will proceed to the location of the room and will not begin until completely unobserved. Once unobserved, various war sounds will proceed to emanate from said room, although at a vastly lower volume than normal. Including, but not limited to: gunshots, men screaming (all attempts to understand the language the screams are in have proven inconclusive), artillery fire, and tank operation. After an amount of time, determined by the size and complexity of the room, the sounds will cease and, if the "troop" is unobserved, will appear spontaneously at the current location of the commander. After the troop is done cleaning, the room will be found completely spotless. Unless the commander is given orders to ignore any specific area of the room, the entire room will be cleaned, regardless of severty if dirtiness. See Addendum 1 for testing logs.




    Addendum 1:

    Test #: 1
    Subject: One 15m by 15m room, covered in various debris and grime.

    Details: Orders were issued to the Commander, ordering the troop to clean the room, except for a 3m square in the center. After approximately ██ minutes, all sounds ceased and the troop returned. Upon inspection of the room, it was noted that the room was completely clean and there was a 3m square in the middle of the room that was not cleaned.

    Dr.Clef - You know, we might be able to station these guys in SCP-173's cell. Permanently.

    Woosh.

    It probably needs a lot more fleshing out, this was something I came up with in about 20 minutes. I guess if I worked on it for a bit I could submit it, but I CBA. If anyone wants to take it and run with it, by my guest, just send me a PM saying you did or something and gimme the link to it if it ends up getting accepted.

    AAhhhh man. I would get such a creepypasta hard on if they ever did that.

    Holder item as an SCP. God DAMN that would make so much sense and it would just be so damn awesome.

    Maybe they could just imply it. Like, an homage or cameo or something. Like how 582 is basically a Slender Man homage.


    But I totally understand.

    I'm sorry, but I don't like it. It brings nothing new to the table, and seems a little of a Mary Sue, considering the peaceful-intelligent prospect. The fact that the article humanizes it by giving it a name and establishing dialogue only furthers this.

    I think the very idea of a smart, peaceful and friendly creature without any negative prospects is flawed in terms of storytelling. If one thing, it will surely never be accepted in the official website. At least not in the current state.

    My suggestion? Change it completely, including the idea. The thing about the SCP foundation is that a SCP must be creative and original in comparison to anything else on the site. Otherwise it will seem cliché and downvoted in an instance.

    Sorry about the harsh words, but I see no way that this will work.

    Define "marysue-ish". I thought a marysue was defined by being something without flaw, or using a really gimmicky concept (like being a solution to everything, or being indestructible, etc etc).

    well he seems endlessly nice and well-read, which is bad because the standard ploy of "dull know-it-all" comes into play, if he had like, fits of megalomania or a paperclipper-style outburst then it'd be far better

    Hey guys, I just had another idea for an SCP. An 80's full house-esque sitcom that has violent and disturbing acts(school shootings, homicide, depressive alchohol bingeing, etc.) happening dissonantly. With watchers of the show repeating events or taking influence from it.

    Well, this takes some inspirations from SCP-993, but is somewhat different.
    For instance, the show would entail viewers into watching it religously. Forcing smiles onto victims, as they begin killing neighbors and setting alight to houses with matches.
