    • SCP-3321 was the first article posted
    • …and The Show Must Always Go On was the last!
    • 16,070 people joined the wiki this year, which means that the admins had to click at least 16,070 times on the "accept" button.
    • And finally, in these 5 past days alone, we've already cast 5,819 votes total!
    • So lets hope for an even greater 2019!
  • Cliche Con 2019 - The first contest of 2019 has started! So get out there and start writing generic humanoids with dark, mysterious pasts! (Note: mileage may vary)
  • The 2018 Survey is up and we want you (yeah you!) to fill it out!

Event Featured Articles

The theme for the month of November was Clockwork!

  • In SCP-1661 ("Gremlins"), rewritten by ShaggydredlocksShaggydredlocks, original by Adam HendersonAdam Henderson, mechanical gremlins are prevented from doing their mechanical gremlin thing. Antics ensue.
  • In SCP-3221 ("Prester John the Unbroken"), by Modern_ErasmusModern_Erasmus and TuftoTufto, a man split down the middle in body, soul, and religion is encountered.
  • In SCP-3662 ("The Doomsday Clock"), by AyersAyers, a clockwork heart tells lies of redemption, spreading sadness in its wake.


You will notice little '📈' emojis besides some articles. That denotes SCP articles which were under 30 and tales which were under 20 when this edition of site news was posted. Give them a little love! Speaking from personal experience, the most frustrating thing that can happen to an article is not deletion, but stagnating below 20 without any comments. So try to read, vote, and comment on these articles! They're often hidden gems :)

Fanart

This month we are featuring just four artists. Each as a sort of ambassador of four different sites with a strong concentration of SCP artwork - Tumblr, DeviantArt, Reddit, and Pixiv.

From Tumblr we have Zhange who published two paintings this month. Click on the thumbnails to read the individual Tumblr posts about them if you'd like to learn more about the context of these pieces.

In December the prolific artist SteveMobCannon brought their unique style to SCP for the first time and posted progress drawings on Reddit as they re-imagined a few classic SCP monsters.
Click the thumbnails below to see the drawings in full or click here to see their entire r/SCP posting history.

The Japanese online community for artists Pixiv contains an enormous amount of SCP art. Very much worth a look if you haven't checked it out before.
Jennycreativity has been consistently posting SCP art on Pixiv for a while, including several this December:

Other fandom news:


Q&A:

Q: Can I replace a blurb that you wrote for one of my articles with my own? I'm not satisfied with it.

A: Absolutely. You will always have that option at any point.

Q: I noticed an error/typo/incorrect information and wish to correct it. May I?

A: Sure! If the changes are not limited to your own article(s) and/or are substantial changes across multiple entries, you should post in that month's discussion page and then make the changes.

Q: I wrote an article and it seems to have stuck. Can I send a blurb of mine to one of the frequent collaborators?

A: Yup! It's much easier if you come to us about it, and it gives you the control over what you want shown on the news page.
