Edit: Ok, I'm pretty sure I agreed to review this on the forums, but that didn't happen. I apologize. However, this looks like it's doing fine. My only complaint would be that the -As each get their own house. Like, why not standard humanoid containment? Most humanoids live their lives as prisoners.

Edit: The way I imagined it, they don't each get their own house, they share four houses. I'll update the article to make that clear. As for why they aren't in cells: partly because the Foundation relies on -A volunteers to research the SCP, partly because they feel bad for their fallen comrades, but mostly because the most secure prison is one the prisoners don't want to leave.
At least for me, i think the biggest hole in the story is how the Foundation managed to remove the house from the county and then put it underground. Wouldn't it be easier to purchase nearby terrain with a shell company and go from there?
A lot of SCP objects that are located on fixated terrain are contained on site. An old example is 097 and a brand new one is Kate's 2972.
I'll keep myself neutral for now.
Anne Arundel is a wealthy DC suburb, and the house is in a densely-populated area— that's why so many 2310-As ended up in the building. It's cheaper and less attention-grabbing to move it than to buy up an entire inhabited neighborhood. I'll try to update the article to be clearer about that.
This is like, exactly how my own headcannon (pew) Foundation would operate, would sound like, would look like, everything. This is one of the greatest things of realistic with anomalous I've ever read, like an episode of "The Wire" set in SCP universe
Surprise twist: "The Wire" is also set in Maryland
I do like this. It's a nice look at the review system, although I do think that the logs were a bit over the top with regards to the "haha look at this dumbass", and I can't imagine the director calling the SCP "dumb", seems a bit childish. Then again, that could just be personal things, so I dunno.
One thing seriously bugs me, and that's that they stored the house underground. I mean, come on, how the hell would they manage that? Like Omniscientist said earlier, you can have onsite containment.
Neutral-voting for now. Fix things, or at least make them feasible, for upvote.
Onsite containment doesn't make sense to me, given that it's located in a densely-populated neighborhood. You're right that underground is too far, though, that's been fixed and I've added a brief justification for moving it.
Hmm. Did they take gas and water pipes and all? 'Cause that still seems rather… difficult. Not to mention noticeable.
Not sure, but here's Wikipedia's article on the practice of moving whole buildings: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Structure_relocation
Dumb actually gets used in a semi-official manner when you're talking about things like control systems or threat types. In that case dumb means its a thing that just does what it does blindly. A dumb security measure, for example, would be something like a razor wire barricade- it doesn't actively do anything, but it accomplishes its task simply by sitting there being pointy and hard to get around.
Some anvils need to be dropped. I upvoted so hard.
Honored to hear it, the Gulf Canon was a big influence on this and some other stuff I'm working on
The Series 3 title for this… leaves something to be desired.
