Got a scp in progress sitting in a sandbox anyone interested in giving me some feedback ;)
If anyone is here's the link http://scpsandbox2.wikidot.com/anomalousmonkey
Moreover, humanoid SCP that spreads gas would be interesting idea, but it is necesarry to completely rewrite this…
And your reason why?
Ok Yh I get you thank you for the feedback. Very useful
AnomalousMonkey, instead of posting multiple comments in succession, please edit your previous post using the "edit" function under the "options" tab to the lower right of every comment. That prevents spam buildup, and it's in the rules.
Heya, let's see what we've got.
Wow this is like the best piece of criticism I've had. Although you were right with a lot of punctuation mistakes and grammar mistakes I found your criticism a little too over detailed. I'm not saying your wrong coz u are actually completely right but to be honest things shouldn't need to go that far in depth, I'm not denying that I was a little to under specific but maybe not to the point in which u were describing. Thanks for this I will take this all into consideration next time I write. I plan on ditching this as I'm no longer keen on the whole humanoid thing anymore ;) much respect man
I'm not staff anymore, so just take this as general advice rather than a warning, but between the double-posting, the first post not having a link to a draft in the first place, and this comment (it's really not a bad thing that Sirens gave you detailed criticism. That's what we all aim for here), I'd suggest you re-read the site rules and Guide for Newbies again. You've only been a member of the site for one day, and there's really no need to rush, nor is there a need to double-post (double-posting specifically is mentioned in the rules) and dismiss criticism written in a format that is absolutely considered helpful on this site. Sirens gave you some really good advice.
Thanks for this I will take this all into consideration next time I write.
Please especially take into consideration Sirens' last two paragraphs linking to the writing guides. They will help you immensely in the future, even if you do go through with scrapping this draft specifically.

Just a quick heads up, AnomalousMonkey, when you write for the site, you write for an audience. If your reader doesn't enjoy the piece, that'll affect their vote on a mainsite piece. If you think someone's feedback is "too over detailed" and refuse to incorporate it, you're essentially accepting their eventual downvote.
Of course, it's totally fine to accept a downvote in that context, but if you tell someone "things shouldn't need to be that way" when they explain why they disliked something, you're kind of alienating yourself from any future review from that person as well.
While I won't touch on the points Cyantruse and Zyn brought up, I will point out that in the second to last paragraph I said they were all things you could include to help the narrative, not that you should include all of them. The questions listed after the quoted portions are merely things that came to mind while reading, and some of those points weren't explained so in the end, I was left with more questions than answers.
Detailed critique and line by lines typically look at every aspect of an article for the most part and as a reader, if something doesn't add up in the end, I want to point that out so that you, as an author, can make the changes necessary to get an article ready for the main site. I respect your opinion here, however I think detailed critique can be a lot more helpful if you try to look at it from a reader's perspective. As the author, you have all the answers about your draft in your head, but readers don't and need that information presented to them, if that makes sense.
Ok Yh I see your point. This thread has been incredibly useful to me so thanks to everyone who jumped in to give some advice ;)
