SCP-914 Experiment Log Sandbox

Due to repeated vandalism on the sandbox wiki, this page has been moved to the main site.

Note: This page will be purged every week. If your log is rejected or doesn't adhere to the correct format, make sure to save a copy yourself if you want to try again.


Guidelines for future entries can be found here.


Note to all contributors:

Please include your name on all records, along with the date and the total number of items "refined."

Test Log Format:
All test logs should be written in this form:

**Name:**
**Date:** DD/MM/YYYY
**Total Items:**

**Input:**
**Setting:**
**Output:**


If you want to add a note to a log that has already been ported over, copy that log to the bottom of this page and use this template:

//Suggested Note://


REMINDERS TO CONTRIBUTORS: SCP-914 does not create or destroy matter, nor does it change anything on the atomic level. All outputs should contain all and only the matter included in the input. Some grandfathered entries break this rule, but new entries should never do so.

Additional reminder: 914 is a cheeky little bugger. It's unpredictable and apparently kinda snarky. If the output is exactly what you'd expect from the input, or if 914 has just obligingly improved everything you put in, the entry is out-of-character.

  • LeveritasLeveritas (me) will regularly check this page, selecting logs that are of sufficient quality to add to the log and port them over.
  • Tests that fail to adhere to the proper format (date, etc.) will not be ported until fixed.
  • You can place notes at the end of tests, and feel free to be creative when doing so. It can give some interesting insight into dynamics within the Foundation. Having said that, don't make Foundation personnel look like idiots/psychopaths/juvenile/a combination of those. It's a professional research organization, not a fraternity ward or a death cult.
  • Not too direct. 914 doesn't talk to researchers directly, it ruins the mystery and it's not clear if the machine is sentient or not. If you put in a note, you don't get a response, you might get something that might be a response if you interpret it a certain way, but it also might be random. Or something else entirely.
If you're not comfortable with your in-universe name being used, politely request a change or come to me about it. If you start editing other logs without warning, you're out of here so fast that it's going to make your head spin. I have no tolerance for divas.

Notice: On another note, changing these notices will result in disciplinary actions, meaning Site banning, not just this log.

Some of you might have noticed that I'm being harsher on notes and logs that I deem too LOLFoundation. To illustrate my point, I'm going to use an example from part IV:

I actually edited the note. This is what it originally was:

This is a very small difference, but it makes a world of difference in tone. The first entry works a lot better because it's not a researcher scolding the machine outright like a kid would. It's implying (read, show don't tell) that the researcher became so fed up with the result that he outright left. Wacky entries work well if it's against the cold professionalism that signifies the Foundation, and it doesn't work if it looks like the employees are acting just as unprofessional.


Added Logs

Please delete yours as soon as you see it. Thanks! (Logs that have been moved here for more than a day have been shortened to save a little space.)

Denied Logs

Denied or equivalent by mod, as well as drafts that have not been touched for a long time. (Will be deleted after a day without activity.)

General Notes

Notices for everyone.

1. Have you had enough sleep? Because if you didn't, it's still NOT an excuse for low-quality tests.

2. If you didn't bother reading the above division of obviously important text, click here!
3. Part XIII is up and running! Find your tests here.
4. New log-writers, please do not use other writers' characters without asking. It is generally seen as bad form. If you want to use someone's character, most of the writers can be contacted via Wikidot PM or, for a quicker response, the 914 Discord server.


Notes to Mod

Extant entry fixes.

Hi Lev. The first log for test 1356 was incomplete. Please either cut off the unfinished placeholder slots or remove the test until I can finish it. - Klaus Beiderman

It's under added logs. - Mod

Just wanted to say the collapsible for Test Logs 138X isn’t working. It’s instead inside of 137X’s logs. - Derrick

Name: R&D Technician Fae
Date: 19/01/2020
Total Items: Three standard wireless laser printers (faulty)

Note: I've gotten my office printer replaced twice at this point, and all three have stopped working. Maybe 914 can actually fix something for once. - R&DT Fae

Input: One standard wireless laser printer (faulty)
Setting: Fine
Output: One anomalous wireless laser printer. When a print request is sent through, the printer compels the nearest person to grab any available writing utensil as well as a sheet of the printer's paper and write a seemingly random error message pertaining to the situation.

If no paper is present, the individual will instead write "Error: Please replace paper in tray." on the nearest scribable surface, usually the subject's own skin.

Testing has yet to reveal any documents other than error messages.

Note: Is 914 having a go at me? I never thought I'd see myself write "Error: Insufficient levels of competence to complete this request." Also, could someone please write up some test procedures for this thing? I don't want to see another D-Class write "Error: Insufficient pigmentation range." in his own blood because someone forgot to hand him a pen. - R&D Technician Fae

Note: Maybe it can combine two broken printers into one working printer? - R&DT Fae

Input: Two standard wireless laser printers (faulty)
Setting: Very Fine
Output: One 3D 4D printer. The printer takes standard 2D printing requests yet always outputs a pitch black hypercube, seemingly identical each time. The printer still accepts standard A4 paper to perform this task.

Note: The printer's anomalous properties were not discovered until the initial test document's hypercube was dropped on retrieval by R&DT Fae, causing it to disappear into the 4th dimension before hitting the ground. Analysis of possible high-capacity data storage as a result of the extra dimensions is ongoing, however hampered by the difficulty of handling any produced objects.

Note: …did it work? - R&D Technician Fae


I added a collapsible at top of the page for all added entries. If you can't find your log anymore, it's probably there. Be so kind as to delete yours. - Laskenta

Another collapsible has been added by mod. If you want to try again, take it out but make sure it's edited. If you don't want to try again, do us a favour and delete it too. - Kai

PS: After the denied logs have been deleted from the collapsible and you want to try again but cannot find it, PM me at KainicornKainicorn immediately! - Kai
