I know, but its not a complete draft, and everyone over in drafts complained that it needed to go in the ideas :/

Re: Possible new SCP by Agent NBAgent NB, 24 Apr 2018 14:36

The incident log, in its current form, makes this a downvote for me. An atypical test only works if we see how it works normally first. I'd also like some dialogue here. The current list of effects suggests communication is still possible, so command should try talking to them. Is 3193-A mind-controlled, delusional, or what?

I always love it when an MCD piece makes them feel like a real business while simultaneously portraying their inate horror and absurdity. It’s a difficult balance to strike, but you did a great job of it here. +1

I've seen innumerable commercials which use the whole "four million sticky notes on the computer screen" cliché, but what if that was taken to a more interesting sense.

Introducing "Forget-This-Not", a sticky note that forces you to remember something. You write something you want to remember on the sticky note, then stick it on your forehead, it disappears, and you will be incapable of forgetting it. The idea includes some fancy memetic hazards such as the whole "you are my slave" theory, and there's specifics in the formatting of such commands, of which would be mentioned in the document itself.

Here's a few ideas for examples I thought of.

Pretty interesting idea. I think you've got pretty decent amount of background information. If you are looking to beef it up a little. Add some info about, why/how the hat became the way it is. Obviously hats don't just spontaneously turn into cognitohazards. You don't have to if you don't want to, but personally I'd like to know why the hat became the way that it is.

Hello hello, glad to finally be here!

I discovered the Foundation back in my early college days when I became ravenous for (and sleepless from) creepypasta. I've read SEVERAL of the entries back when SCP 001 had five proposals (instead of seventeen now, hot damn), but then school demanded more of my attention and I couldn't peruse the site as often as I used to.

It's actually thanks to coming across The Volgun and listening to his readings of both SCP files and Tales that I found myself coming back again, this time actively poking around, getting a WikiDot account, following the Tumblr, etc.

Yesterday morning, while in a half-lucid haze, I got my first inspiration for an SCP of my own. I'm not sure if it's been done before, but I'm going to find out and (with some work and a few maneki neko for luck) get it posted.

I look forward to researching with you all.

Not sure if this has been done before, but it's a partially done draft.

Its on the first tab

I'm new to reviewing works in progress, so sorry if this is the wrong place to critique. That said, I feel like "communist who turns others into communists" has been done to death. Unless you make his character or backstory REALLY well written (which I wouldn't put too much faith in, as there are very few writers who could pull that off), I wouldn't say this idea has much merit to it, sorry.

Thats probably a good idea thanks :)

Re: New SCP, draft by Agent NBAgent NB, 24 Apr 2018 14:09

This idea seems kind of bland, to be honest. Sure, it seems interesting, but there's no further narrative. SCP-860 comes to mind while reading this, which is a bad thing, because it would be really easy to make your SCP seem too much like SCP-860. I do have a few questions, however.

  1. Can you just explore as far as you wanted to once inside the realm, or is there a border?
  2. When inside the realm, can you take objects with you? For instance, if there was a hat on a coat rack in the realm, could you wear the hat and take it back with you?
  3. So, you can take the door handle with you when inside the realm, but what happens if someone else attempts to use the door while you're carrying the other end? Does the original door open without a handle, or will the door be locked from the non-realm side?
  4. The method of which you can transfer to other dimensions is not explicitly mentioned. Do you place the door handle somewhere else inside the realm?

Those are just a few questions you'll need to cover, as they can become quick plot holes. Something else to consider is how you're going to organize the exploration logs.

  1. How will the exploration occur? Will a professional team attempt to set up an outpost with each realm and attempt to establish communication with the Foundation?
  2. How will the team be set up? D-Classes? A team of security officers?
  3. What's the goal of exploration? Is there a realm that will be "the end" of the realms?
  4. Will there be something to prevent the exploration team from continuing through the dimensions?

I hope this helps you out. I think this idea needs some RnD before you start a draft.

Re: A ‘new’ SCP by ZaeCatheZaeCathe, 24 Apr 2018 14:05

know it's not close to being done and is kinda vague, but could anyone tell me if this has been done before,

This is a query better-suited for the Ideas and Brainstorming forum, especially if your draft isn't even close to being done.

Re: New SCP, draft by ZynZyn, 24 Apr 2018 14:04

Author, did you want conceptual critique or writing/execution critique? If the former, please provide a brief overview of the idea (look at other threads in this forum to see how to use it properly). If the latter… I'm going to be honest, it's not ready for that. I don't know if a "metric foot" is really a unit used often in SI, and you have a lot of casual wording and sloppy phrasing (e.g., "They water found leaking out of two god-like statues") that make this look like the work of a middle schooler talking about a video game rather than the work of a professional reseacher.

This will need a lot of work if you want it to stand a chance on the mainsite.

Re: SCP Idea by ZynZyn, 24 Apr 2018 14:02

It's cool, I do the same.

It should flow better now.

by sirpuddingsirpudding, 24 Apr 2018 14:01

no it ok. these better than vagro. u trust dado.

Though honestly, I really wish you guys would just let this one go. It's really not that deep. If you think the leap in logic here is too great, then that's whatever, but I don't understand why this is the hill you both seem to want to die on.

Move the fuck on, Jesus Christ. It's just one dumb article about a dude selling boner pills for fuck's sake.

Well if they know it's baking powder sure, if they're not sure if it's coke or not then I again can't see it being a ridiculous concept they'd try it to find out.

To be honest we obviously have different opinions here and we're obviously not going to change each others mind so I don't know if there's any point carrying it on.

Re: New SCP draft by Agent NBAgent NB, 24 Apr 2018 13:58

Gotta say, personal favourite of Season 4 so far.
Nice base concept, being a wine bottle that turns blood into wine.

Needless to say, it's like a slightly more sadistic version of that "water-to-wine" stuff.
And, that concept was displayed well.

Nice. by Tom21bTom21b, 24 Apr 2018 13:58

So I'm writing a Choose Your Own Adventure SCP(its in this sandbox). The old thread was super cluttered so I made this thread. I currently need these ideas:

  • 1x Thing that can fit in an ammo box
  • 3x Humanoids/animals that can fit in a humanoid containment cell
  • 3x Buildings or in-situ containment

I also need a ton of addendum, so feel free to include some. Also feel free to pm me your sandbox to see if i can work with them too!

Also: I will take requests for Easter eggs and stuff to put into the box. For example, inputting "STONEYBOI" will provide a link to SCP-173. This is your little reward for curiousity.
