There is one thing I need a tiny bit of help with though. I want to write a SCP first to see if they're good enough but i'm not sure what Document writing programme I should use. Any advice?
I usually write my SCPs on Microsoft Word, and then transfer the text to the sandbox. As such, if you haven't already, make sure to create a sandbox page for yourself. Any drafts you write up should be placed there and shown to the IRC chat and/or the drafts forums for feedback prior to a mainsite post.
I look forward to seeing your work. Welcome to the site!
Thanks! I'll try getting microsoft word and setting up my sandbox page. BTW, what SCP's have you written? I'd love to read them.
Might I recommend Apache Open Office? Its word processor is as powerful as MS Word, and it's free!
You sir have made my day!
Just one of the many services I offer. :3
It's great! I managed to write a short draft of a SCP idea. (Still a long way from anything good) Thanks!
After you get it up on the sandbox, feel free to PM me if you want eyes on your draft. I'm a little more forgiving than the staff/senior staff, but I'll help if I can.
Keep in mind though: your biggest asset is your own tenacity. Read everything you can, and when you're done with that, read some more.
http://sandbox.scp-wiki.net/chipperz-sandbox I'm pretty much a idiot so I'm spending atleast the next hour trying to figure out how I put a link to my sandbox. My SCP draft I just did the containment procedures and some other stuff. Please tell me anywhere I can improve. I will probably upload a picture of my SCP tonight too. Thanks for all the help
Welcome aboard. You might get more assistance if you post this is the Help: Draft and Critiques forum area. I will look at this and post some feedback when it is listed over there so not to clutter up this thread :)
I usually just write straight into my sandbox, since that way I can immediately see any coding errors. If you do use an outside word processor, make sure to go through it if/when you copy it to the site, to make sure there aren't any funky characters or messed-up spacing/line-breaks.

Yeah. Another advantage of that is that I can start off something and finish it at different places (college habitations, department computers etc…) without any hassle.
