uhhh…I don't mean to butt in on the deletion, but I think you might wanna -ARC it since the Special D Protocol has a much higher rating than this. And deleting it would probably muddle the work of the protocol.

If I'm wrong on this, then please ignore this post.

Yeah know what? While I would silly (in maybe a bad way), I really like this. It needs some work, but if you get some more critique then this'll be a good -J

This sentence:

SCP-6969-J is a drop-dead gorgeous sphere of pure fuckin' white ceramic 5cm in diameter. It is sentient, sapient, and ready to kick some ass,

is a work of goddamn art.

The rest of it, well, the horndoggery is OTTOP, failed-ironically misogynistic1, and not particularly funny on it's own.

No vote for that sentence, though.

90% of the time, I'm dead sick of horror articles. I'm tired of seeing MTFs turned into hamburger with no payoff or survivors. When people start talking about what is happening to people's organs or local children, I tune out.

If your object drags me into another world (and the object doesn't have to be a world, some objects can do this in one paragraph), and that world scares me? Awesome. Great, even! I love that stuff! But tons of horror-movie (or even horror-SCP) tropes aren't going to get me there, and will probably make me downvote.

Thanks very much, I'll get working on these notes.

It's the sort of clinical tone that I'm not used to, so bare with me.

Update: if anyone is able to read through chunks of SCPs and write up tag lists/explanations for them, feel free to check the series lists on the blog for any chunks that haven't been claimed yet. If you can do a section, send me what part you can do and I'll mark you down for it.

Series 1
Series 2
Series 3
Non-Mainlist (the old -D SCPs need to be re-classified as -ARC SCPs on the page, otherwise everything is as it should be)

NOTE: There are a few SCPs that are not going to be tagged at behest of the author. Check the FAQ page on the blog, and the very last question will have a list of which SCPs to not make posts for.

That's the point of the tags. The tag system on tumblr is searchable, meaning someone could look up, for example, "amputation" and find every SCP tagged with that warning tag on the blog. There's no reason to list absolutely every thing on one page, and that defeats the purpose of the whole ability to search tags anyway.

The reason for using tumblr is just that alone. Can you imagine trying to put something like this on Reddit or Facebook? The point isn't reaching a large audience as much as it is creating a resource. Tumblr happens to be the easiest place to make it.

Hmm…


Oh, and one question: Do you plan to include 2332 or Zyn in actual A-9 tales?

Disregard this… mostly. I took another attempt at writing a newer, much more informative interview log. But I'd still like to know if the article is better with or without it. Or would be best with a different interview log.

For easy stuff to copy and paste, check the Code Snippets site out. However, I don't think custom animations are possible in wikidot syntax. The best you could do is host and code it externally and linking it here, much like Aelanna did with SCP-895 (domain for it is here).

Yay, thanks everyone!

MrWrong: Yeah, the ivory was there, but just barely. I have a bad tendency to try and be a vague as possible on the first go, which is why I especially appreciate feedback.

canaryfarmer: Yeah, the black dots were totally a last-minute ploy because I was sick of trying to figure out how to balance various layers. I've gone back and tweaked it a bit.

Edit: Sergeimosin: I'll think on it, but it's finals week and I have to defend my thesis in two weeks, so it'll be a bit.

As far as the O5s go, I see the logic like this:

Agent MacLeod and others: Now now, everybody. Moles are Talpidae (among others), crabs are Brachyura, and people are Hominidae.

These guys are something like…

This is 732 as a stuck-up douchebag. Which, while mildly amusing, isn't good enough to warrant its existence.

by ObserverSeptemberObserverSeptember, 25 Apr 2015 08:39

Hi there. Just wondering if there is a definitive list anywhere that says what can and can't be achieved with wiki syntax and how to do more advanced stuff? For example I'd like to do some animations but I don't know where to start. I can Google it but it comes up with pages about CSS, and I don't know how to incorporate that, or even if we can.

Thoughts?


You're only as good - or as bad - as your last skip.

I just remembered that this exists. Oh man, I love this - as a meta-commentary and as a fun comedic writing.

Perhaps two sides of a portal: one an idyllic scene of peace, and one a chaotic world of death and destruction.

Yep, they are directly from the RP's notes. I liked the detail, so I stole it, but I didn't realize that you'd created them.

I'm sorry the tale didn't work for you, though.

Regarding the ending:

by thedeadlymoosethedeadlymoose, 25 Apr 2015 07:46

… I may very well be imagining this, but I distinctly remember inventing the buttersquirrels when I GMed in the Tamlin House RP. They eat shoes.

But this tale doesn't focus on what I really think are the cool parts of Resurrection,and maybe I'm taking the wrong thing away from this, but I would have preferred to read something overall less melodramatic.

And the ending kind of felt like an ass pull.

This is so, so cool.

Never have I felt such feels for a chatbot.

Take your damn upvote and go buy something nice with it.

by ObserverSeptemberObserverSeptember, 25 Apr 2015 07:26

Someone will laugh, but I can't. Not funny to me.

Besides, that last line totally kills any mood it had either.
