This could be really interesting if someone elaborated on it. Could we risk using 808? If not, then perhaps we could use the 'cloning photo booth' on her…..

808 is in a different universe now you guys.
This SCP has always bothered me. It's basically a takeout version of SCP-024 that manufactures SCPish objects.
I feel that 024 did more with the concept, and did it better.
Aw, I'd like to see this one kept around. For one, 024 was posted several months after 263, so this one has seniority, for whatever that's worth. For two, I'll echo my comments from the Mass Edit:
SCP-263: There's nothing wrong with this one except that someone wrote 024. And it's not really a fair comparison— it'd be like comparing, say, "Truth or Consequences" to "American Gladiators". But if it's eventually determined to keep only one game show SCP, then get rid of this one and keep 024. Maybe 263-1 can guest host….
The fact that it asks questions about the Foundation is a big turn off to me. Also, it's a rando-item generator.
In addition to what Joshua Sampi said about it only asking questions about the Foundation (what did it ask questions about before being in foundation custody?), I do not understand why this object is classified as Euclid. Arguably, if you lock it in a storage box and never turn it on, nothing bad will happen, right?
On the one hand, I might like to see it make something bad happen, e.g. it's a game show so it needs to run at least once a week or it will try to take over the next closest television set (CRT only, since it doesn't recognize new tech) that is turned on after a time threshhold. On the other hand, I'm given to understand that SCPs that make you use them are a bit of a cliche, so maybe it'd just be better to classify it as safe.
Surprised no has mentioned this one is actually SAFE. Unplug it and stick it in a box.

This is entirely true. However, I imagine that anything with (apparently) in-depth knowledge of nearly everything the Foundation knows would be subject to quite a bit of security. If one had access to a lot of disposable people (like the GOC with their banana republics), one could obtain a fair amount of info just by process of elimination (maybe).
perhaps an acquisition segment would help this? maybe something about it being from the chaos insurgency, and only asks about foundation documents they have a copy of - thus giving the foundation a reason (counter-espionage) to keep using it?
