Guide to Newbies

Introduction

Welcome to the SCP Foundation Wiki! We are happy to have you aboard our creative writing project, and hope you enjoy your stay.

All works posted on this wiki, unless otherwise stated, are works of fiction. This is not a Roleplay site. The Foundation does not exist.

You are reading the Guide for Newbies, your introduction to site etiquette and standards. However you may have found your way here, we welcome you as a member and a potential author of SCPs and SCP-related stories and documents.

Let's start from the beginning: getting from casual reader to site member.

  • 1. Make an account with Wikidot, our glorious overlord host site. Go here to do so.
  • 3. Even with a Wikidot account, you still aren't a member of the SCP Foundation site itself. To join the site itself, you have to go to this page and write your application.

Hey, that's odd. We went from step 1 to step 3. What's step 2? Wait, here it is:

  • 2. To get your application approved, you have to follow all the instructions on the Join This Site page. That includes reading this guide, so you're off to a good start. You are required to read at least the "Site Behavior" tab before joining the site.

If you're interested in joining the chat or writing for the site, you'll find additional pages linked to from this guide which will help you out.

You are expected to know the Site Rules before posting any comments, and you are expected to have read How to Write An SCP before writing any articles.

To navigate this page, scroll to the top and click on another tab. (The next one is "Site Behavior," if that helps.)

If, after reading this guide, you still have questions, you should check out the FAQ.

If you are reading this page to find out how to get into the site, finishing this first tab is not enough. Please continue reading, or your application will be denied.
