Because I put it in a draft and considering to slap "1998" on the side.
Just a heads up, but people can't see the info in your thread summary when they're viewing your post on the Recent Posts page. This means your post comes across as completely nonsensical.
Anyway, whether or not the Factory is still operation is completely up to everyone's headcanon. However, I doubt there are many people who believe it isn't.
Not sure what you mean by considering to slap "1998" on the side though.
Thanks for the info. By slapping "1998 on the side" I mean I am making an SCP originally created by the Factory in 1998. Since the Factory was captured by the Foundation in 18-something, I thought the Factory could have been shut down.
