Shouldn't be too hard. Just need to get Readers Digest or another literary magazine to run a story on the SCP Wiki website.

If SCP: Containment Breach can get a wiki page due to being mentioned in PC Gamer, then so can this Wiki.

Re: Why no Wikipedia page? by dankaardankaar, 17 Apr 2014 08:19

Author Karma mistakenly only ran once, because I'd switched off interval. It's been fixed. PM Shortcut also had a shortcoming that made it run only on the first page. That's been fixed as well.

As for getting the scripts to run on the Spanish wiki, that's not that hard for all but author karma. Since that last one runs off of a page on Nala's wiki, and Nala doesn't index the translation sites, it won't work for those.

As for the others, download the scripts, open them and change the lines saying:

// @include       http://www.scp-wiki.net/*

If the URL is changed to reflect the URL of the Spanish site, it'll run on the Spanish site. :)

I pretty much agree. The good aspect of this was people for no reason at all thinking that these Mangoes were valuable. Conflicts arising because of it and religions and such made it interesting.
My advice would to be to remove all of the "go crazy and dead" elements as they are really overdone now.

Well, that sucks. So it all depends on getting mainstream media on board with this…

That sounds reasonable to me.

After brainstorming a bit in the IRC, we've come up with a few ideas for the second idea of the digital town:

  • All the people identified as being missing persons have all been reported missing after the invention of the internet
  • Taking a picture of the area where the town is doesn't produce an image of the town. The town only appears when the picture is uploaded to the internet.
  • All the people in the town have visited the town that the digital resembles at one point in their lives.
  • The possibility of an online Sim City-like web game, possibly a MUD, being attached to the existence of the town. As more people appear in the town, the more people appear in the game as NPC's.

*

Epic! My story may be on the verge of deletion but at least the scips increased in rating. Probably by coincidence but… I'll pretend I made an impact!

Sure! Don't get me wrong, the SCP amuses me. But not much past that. Glad you had fun.

Standard positive-action defenses (explosive, chemical, biological, and memetic)

This is outdated and seems to still be around in A LOT of articles, I would just erase it, but it impacts me as a sort of "major change" so I will abstain.

Great scip, nonetheless, upvoted.

I feel like the concept is at cross-purposes with the execution. The idea of a homophonic bleed from the memetic effect is really cool, but since you can't highlight how the eye-part is English-centric, or how it might also disrupt recognizing the affirmative due to "aye," the gimmick ends up as a detraction.

Kudos on the writing quality, but as a scip it just doesn't do it for me.

No vote

I laughed pretty hard a few times. I'd like to see this be a heavily monitored collab. Something where stuff that isn't truly funny is removed.

As far as I'm seeing at the moment, it basically comes down to a writing gimmick with little or no substance behind it. Like the crossword, but not as extreme.

Surely it took effort, time, dedication to write, but overall, what was written was…not much at all.

E: Also, Crowley was a stupid fucking worthless hack* and references to him make me eyes roll so hard it hurts.

I'd support this as a collab log, and I'm generally pretty wary of those. I loved the airplane one when I first saw it, and I love what you've done with it.

Why not make this thing have to go down one large corridor, then open a second large corridor and close the corridor this thing is in
it can break any kind of material, but what if it doesn't need to?

I like how you developed it. And giving a character actual personality is NOT mary sueish. Well done!

Hello everyone. This is my first time sharing my ideas with the site, but by no means go easy on me.

First idea: Broadway Lover's Collection
This is a collection of CD's of cast recordings of various Broadway musicals. When each CD played straight through, no anomalous properties appear. However, when you skip to certain songs on each CD, anomalous properties occur depending on the song being played. For example, the cast recording of Damn Yankees won't fuse two seemingly-random nearby objects together unless you skip to the song "Two Lost Souls" and dead organic material won't spring back to life unless you skip to "I Am Not Dead Yet" on the Spamalot CD. When the CD's songs are transferred to another listening device such as a laptop music library or an mp3 player, the anomalous properties are retained but are only activated if the entire album is skipped through as opposed to directly selecting the song displaying the effect. These effects don't appear on any other known recordings of these Broadway shows.
I was thinking that the Foundation seizes it after reports of strange incidents in an apartment in New York City, high heel shoes breaking, small plants growing to large sizes and then wilting away within a span of three minutes, and green objects floating to the ceiling and then dropping to the floor.

Second Idea - A Digital Town
The idea behind this is a town that only appears when viewed by accessing Google Street View or a similar method. When people go to the actual physical place where the town should be, they only see a heavily wooded area. It could be written off as just a glitch initially, since the town resembles an actual real-life town, but is put under Foundation surveillance after several people appearing in the town are identified as being missing persons from all over the United States and Canada.

See, this is why the genocide of D-class is not merely monstrously evil in a way that makes "cold, not cruel" a joke, it's a also a terrible, terrible idea.

On top of the immense costs of acquiring, transporting, disposing, and covering up the people you are murdering (it is murder and they are murderers, there are no two ways about this), you are dealing with a series of very persnickety objects that tend to do Incredibly Bad Things if they are not interacted with in exactly the right way. D-class personnel are the people you use to interact with them. And every single month you are killing the people you trained to do this, and bringing in a new batch who must be retrained from scratch. Whoever tried to implement this policy would have been murdered by the HR department and nobody else would claim to have seen a damn thing.

Re: D-Class Individual by HuitzilHuitzil, 17 Apr 2014 04:42

Fair enough. I had a lot of fun writing this, and that's the most important thing to me. I probably could've worked harder, but I love what I've done with it as it is right now. I respect what you've said, but won't be changing a thing about this for the time being.

by DevereauxDevereaux, 17 Apr 2014 04:31

I thought so. How serendipitous finding this posted just a few hours after getting back from that movie.

by legendaryweredragonlegendaryweredragon, 17 Apr 2014 04:29

Wow, this probably got the "youngest article to
get featured" record.
