Hello. My username is Zashley, but you can call me Zash. I've known about the SCP Wiki for a long while now and originally learned about it from a play-through of the video game based on the SCP universe. I've lurked around this wiki for a while and will probably continue to do so, but I'd also like to try my hand at writing articles. I have a few ideas in mind, but I'm a bit worried that they might not be very well-received. Nonetheless, I'm happy to be here.
If you're thinking about becoming a site writer, you should first create a sandbox page to keep your in-progress works, references, or ideas in development at. When you've got a draft ready to be read, bring it to the IRC chat and/or the drafts forums for reviews so you can make the necessary edits before a mainsite post.
So far as polishing up well-received ideas goes, you can always ask for feedback on ideas before you draft them up, in the Ideas and Brainstorming forum. You can also read through the discussion pages of high-rated SCP articles to see which parts the readers liked and didn't like. Remember to pay attention to how old an article is when deciding if you'll use it as a guide or not; you can (and should!) check article age by clicking the "History" link at the bottom of a page, and looking for the page creation date.
If you have any other questions, feel free to message a staff member.
Don't hesitate to ask if there's anything you want to know. :) Welcome to the site!
