  • 04/30/12 - I'll be honest. I've been around a while. Not many things impress my cold, jaded soul anymore. And then… This: SCP-Containment Breach. I cannot easily express in words how amazingly awesome something like this is. And this is just the bare bones of it. I think I speak for both the featured authors and the members of the wiki itself when I say: We are both extremely grateful and awestruck that someone would like to craft something like this from something we helped create. Thank you and keep up the good work.
  • 04/15/12 - WARNING. WARNING. WARNING. SCP-993 CONTAINMENT BREACHED. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
  • 04/14/12 - You all may remember Critters from a previous front page. Apparently, someone liked it so much that they did an audio recording! Holy cow! Critters!
  • 03/07/12 - Hmm… How interesting… There's SCP Death Metal? Yes. Yes, there is. Lets get these kids some hits to say thanks, huh?
  • 02/24/12 Sad times, all. There's been a lot of excitement over the recent fan developed game of SCP-087 (including a lot from the staff here and at other places), but recent reports in the site chat (and forum threads such as these) have led us to suggest that users avoid downloading this game from untrustworthy sources. Make sure you scan these files for viruses before you run them.
  • 12/14/11 Electronic Shadows is a publishing scenario that we're working on! We need authors, editors, and readers, so everyone who is interested should amble on over to the page devoted to it! Thanks!
  • 01/31/12 First it was the Russians, and now… The Chinese? Yes, folks, that's right. There is a group of people translating SCPs into Chinese! Check them out here and see what pages have been translated. Currently, this is pretty embryonic (just a message board with posted translations), but tell me it doesn't make you proud that something you're working with has been translated into four languages, three scripts, and is read across the globe. Enjoy!

  • 08/22/11 Staff would like to remind all authors to ask one of us for help if you aren't sure how to delete one of your pages, and to consult the guide to deletions policy. In fact, everybody just go read that now. We'll wait. In other news, the deadline for the SCP-1000 contest is the end of this month.

Direct all fanmail to the email address in that there post.
  • 5/9/11 Announcing a new source of potential information for aspiring writers on the wiki! The Fragments page, a repository of unused ideas, quotes, lines, jokes, and other fiddly leftover bits from authorship projects that never happened, free for use and addition to by any wiki member so inclined. If you're having trouble coming up with ideas, it may be worth a browse, and if you have scraps cluttering up your sandbox it's a great place to put them.
  • 5/2/11 Doctor Bright was at Penguicon up in the wilds of Michigan distributing fliers and information on the site all weekend. If you saw him there, let him know. Also, we're considering setting up a push for more official documents for drops and other viral distribution. If you're interested, let a staff member know. Unrelated: Have you seen the and then I died SCP themed guessing game? Click on that, and PM Troyl for more information.
  • 4/25/11 Staff would like to remind all users that direct rips from other sources are not allowed on the SCP wiki and will be deleted with no voting process. In lighter news, our very own doctor Gears returned for a brief moment to post a new story. Check out elevator, if you're brave enough. Also, the sandbox wiki has been given a new custom subdomain, http://sandbox.scp-wiki.net/ . So, feel free to adjust your bookmarks accordingly.
