So I reviewed this one not long ago, I'll just say the same thing I said last time

In terms of the tone and mood of the piece, I think SCP-1584 did this trick better. The last addendum also strikes me as unnecessary. Do researchers really need to be reminded not to let the D-Class ingest potentially harmful information?
I like this one. It seems to me that the bread has nothing to do with the anomalous effects on the user, but that the memetic effect requires the user to eat the bread to be able to access the knowledge for an unknown reason.
I agree about the last addendum. It might be better with a short line stating something like "all pages and subject matter must be approved by Level X researcher before testing with D-class personnel"
Thank you! I think I'll use that sentence verbatim, if you don't mind?
The last line is a bit too lolFoundation to me, but over all I liked this one a lot more than I expected to. It might be better as a -J.
I'm going to have to ruminate on this one for a bit.
I fixed the line, hopefully that makes it better?
This skip is so damned goofy that I want to hate it, and this is coming from someone whose first SCP was belligerent cereal. But I can't. I really enjoy it. I really enjoy an article based on a pun. What have I become?
Take your +1, you monster.
Bread toasted in this manner
In one paragraph we're inserting the bread, and in the next not only has it been toasted, but we've already learned that it was toasting.
This kind of narrative jump works in jokes, but it's tone-breaking in scientific articles. I think, just mention that the computer toasts bread put into it…by unknown methods still being investigated.
…oh, whoops. Well, that's a huge oversight. Lemme fix that real quick. >->
Edit: Fixed! Turns out that there's a name for the chemical process involved in making toast, which is absolutely fascinating.
Maybe it's just because I'm still laughing about daveyoufool's artwork, but I laughed a lot. I love the idea that it wants you to put bread in your computer for making toast. I think this might be better if the "learn all knowledge" part were taken out, though. I mean, just an anomalous website that wants to make toast where toast should not be made is pretty great by itself.
Permission to start writing test logs?
That is quite a non sequitur, since you are replying to TL333s (who is not the author here, and won't be able to grant such a permission).
Instead, it would be more appropriate if you communicate with the author about this. Technically, you already did that, but this might be slightly confusing if you contextualise it as a reply to TL333s' comment.
Hey now, I've just been granted power and I fully intend to abuse it! :V
So my question, Tommy1138, is, "What can you do for me?"
Are you asking me what I had in mind for test logs? And, tbh, I had a little trouble finding the author, so I decided to ask the user with the highest authority. Sorry about that.
I'm the author?
Honestly, I'm not sure what test logs would add to the skip. "Yup, this D-Class now has the Wikipedia page on Terrick Truckle completely memorized. Next!"
(terrick truckle doesn't actually have a wikipedia page, which makes me sad)
I think they have potential, although some tweaking might be needed. One D-class fawning over some cat videos (again, tweaking), or someone creepily looking through somebody's facebook bikini photos. Better yet, give Able, 682, or some other killing machine a picture of cute cat. It would drive them nuts with it stuck in their head all day. A creepypasta keeping some poor sucker up all night? A D-class flaunting his Wikipedia knowledge over the others.
And perhaps raisin bread could be used in a unique way? Or playing a browser game in your head (assuming the storage is small enough)?
Different bread having different storage space? What about programs? An auto delete program? Could they affect the user? Could you install software to your brain?
Often and not, the author usually would be the person to have posted version 0. See History at the bottom of the article.
That said, it might not be always the case (since early articles were moved to Wikidot by non-authors). Anyway, the best way to check is to use jarvis (the chat bot). It will direct you to whoever is deemed the author, if applicable.
I found this article to be short, quirky, and entertaining. Do we have articles on the site that have similar concepts, you bet, but there is something charming about toasted knowledge that I find rather endearing as a reader. Goodness knows downloafing would have made many nights of studying easier.
