How to Contribute

Want to contribute to the SCP Foundation? Well, you've come to the right place! Before you get started, though, please make sure you've done the following:

  1. Be sure to read the Site Rules and Guide for Newbies.
  2. Apply for membership to the SCP Wiki.
  3. Create a space for your drafts at the SCP Sandbox Wiki.
  4. Please use IRC Chat and the forums to get feedback and critique of your drafts before posting.

SCP Articles

SCP Articles are the heart of the Foundation, a series of technical articles describing the various anomalous objects, entities, and phenomena contained by the Foundation.

For information on how to write and submit a SCP Article, please read How to Write an SCP. The SCP community has strict standards for tone and technical accuracy; it's strongly recommended that you read any guides and essays relevant to your idea and to use both IRC Chat and the forums to get feedback and critique prior to posting.

Tales

If SCP Articles are the heart of the Foundation, then Tales are its soul. Tales can be anything from formal reports to narrative short stories to poetry that explore some aspect of the Foundation, its personnel, or other topics within the Foundation universe.

You can create a tale by using the New Tale form below, then linking it from Foundation Tales.

Notice: Pages created using this form will automatically be tagged as a tale. For non-tale pages, use the generic page form at the bottom of this page.

Alternative Articles

Alternative Articles are sub-series of SCP Articles that share many of the same framework elements but differ in theme or intent. Alternative Articles are often times more difficult than regular SCP Articles to write but have their own unique twist on the Foundation narrative.

Canons

Canons are collaborative Tale series that can explore a particular aspect of the Foundation universe, other Groups of Interest, parallel universes, or alternative interpretations. Canons are created the same way as Tales are.
