News for December 2020

This is a series showing off news from the site, articles from the past month1, and fan-content for you to check out and discover! Be sure to leave a comment with your thoughts!

Fandom Stuff

  • First edition of the EXPUNGED magazine, an original SCP community newsletter spotlighting articles and fan content edited together by Rounderhouse, was published.
  • The live action SCP short film SCP: Overlord won five awards at the Tampa Bay Underground Film Festival.

Featured Articles

  • SCP-3219 (by The Great Hippo): This Sour Earth [Canon Renaissance contest prize feature, requested by Woedenaz]
    SCP-3219 has been linked to ninety-six disappearances since its discovery.
  • SCP-5762 (by Rounderhouse): a doctor a day [Canon Renaissance contest prize feature, requested by Rounderhouse]
    SCP-5762 is the Anderson Robotics Hummingbird, an experimental robotic surgery system.
  • SCP-4877 (by Captain Kirby): Good Airwaves [Canon Renaissance contest prize feature, requested by Captain Kirby]
    That's the sound of someone thinking with their head, instead of their internal dioxceline receptors.
  • ...Like Clockwork Hub by multiple contributors [Canon Renaissance contest prize feature, requested by Tufto]
    Eventually, the answer will come for why things are the way they are.

You will notice little '📈' emojis beside 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 :)

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.
