I understand that the SCP-3000 entries will be first to slot into Series 4, so will new writing be put on hold until they're all in, or will anyone be able to drop stuff into Series 4 as soon as it opens?
3000 contest entries will be placed into Series 4 slots. Once Series 3 has been completed, Series 4 slots will become available. New writing won't be put on hold at any point, hopefully.
New writing won't be put on hold at any point, hopefully.
Only way it would be put on hold, as far as I can tell, is if they're having issues trying to properly place the 3000 contest entries into their new slots and prematurely activate the hub for Series IV.
Even then, I can't fathom the issue would last more than a day, if that.
We still have around forty slots left so I think we'll probably be fine, all the scp authors have been busy writing their contest entries so we've got time before it fills all the way up.
Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you!
