Hello, friend! ~:o) I'm Skippy, your automated SCP helper! It looks like you're having some trouble. May I be of assistance?

item #: scp_

skippy.png
Hm! If this is your first SCP, might I suggest you review your site's tutorial before proceeding?

item #: scp XX_

skippy.png
Also, rather than directly posting your article to the IntSCPFN server, perhaps you should write a draft on the local sandbox and provide a link to your site's peer review forum?

item #: scp XXXX

skippy.png

No? You want to post this article to the mainlist immediately?

Okay then, friend! I'm here to help! It looks like you've made some basic formatting errors, though. Let's just fix those up for you!

Item #: SCP-XXXX
obje_

There we go! I've bolded 'Item #:' (just enclose text in double-asterisks to bold it; for example: **Item #:**) and corrected the capitalization issues. I also added a dash between 'SCP' and the designation!

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Remember, friend: There should be two line breaks (a full 'space') between each heading!

Let me take care of the rest of this formatting for you! Remember, capitalize each word of a heading ('Item', 'Object Class', etc)!

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Unknown

skippy.png
Hm. It looks like you're trying to use an Esoteric Object Class. Might I suggest you select one of the Standard Object Classes?

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Unknown

**Special Conta_

skippy.png

To determine which Object Class your anomaly falls under, you can apply the 'Locked Box Test'. If the anomaly were locked in a box, would it be contained?

  • If yes, the anomaly is Safe.
  • If yes (but it would need to be checked on), the anomaly is Euclid.
  • If not, the anomaly is Keter.
  • If the anomaly itself is used to contain other anomalies (or otherwise help the Foundation), the anomaly is Thaumiel.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Unknown

**Special Conta

skippy.png
Two alternative classes are Neutralized and Explained. Neutralized refers to anomalies which are no longer active; Explained is for anomalies which were never anomalous at all!

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: _

**Special Conta

SCPs which are Explained have -EX added to them as a post-fix — examples of this include SCP-3000-EX and SCP-1763-EX.

It looks like you're having some problems with your containment procedures, chum! May I make a few suggestions?

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX must be found and destroyed._

skippy.png

A few things to note about containment procedures:

  • The Foundation typically does not destroy anomalies; it merely contains them.
  • Procedures are written as things which either currently are being done or are to be done ("object is kept in a cell" or "object is to be kept in a cell"). 'Must', 'shall be', 'should', or 'would' are typically not used.
  • Procedures should be brief, clear, and succinct — but interesting enough to be memorable.

It looks like you're still having some problems with your containment procedures here, friend! May I suggest a few changes?

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be found, then contained inside a 10x10x10 foot standard containment cell made of telekill alloy with twenty guards armed with AK-47s guarding it.

Some more things to remember about containment procedures:

  • Measurements are written in metric, not imperial. Celsius (not Farenheit), meters (not feet), and liters (not gallons).
  • Precise measurements of cells or chambers should not be included unless these dimensions are directly relevant to the anomaly's containment.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be found, then contained inside a standard containment cell made of telekill alloy with twenty guards armed with AK-47s guarding it heavily armed guards monitoring it at all times.

**Descri_

skippy.png

More things to remember:

  • Avoid esoteric, exotic, or fictitious materials unless they are critical and/or relevant to the anomaly. This even includes materials such as the Foundation's very own telekill alloy!
  • Avoid over-the-top or hyperbolic depictions of what measures must be taken to contain an anomaly.

To help get across the danger of your anomaly, I've added something mentioning that access to it requires Level-4 authorization or higher. Now, regarding your anomaly's description —

It looks like you're trying to insert a narrative into your SCP document. Might I suggest an alternative format?

skippy.png

Some things to remember about Descriptions:

  • They're intended to provide a succinct explanation of what the anomaly is, how it works, and what is important about it.
  • Like containment procedures, they should be brief, but interesting enough for personnel to remember them!
  • Avoid needless adverb-ing ('primarily', 'generally') and phrases like 'appears to be' or 'some sort of'. Be precise, not vague!

Also, sorry about the fanfiction.net snipe back there, chum. Just got a little frustrated, y'know?

But yeah, like I was saying — sorry about that, friend. It's just so irritating when people can't follow the format, you know?

I mean, the format exists for a reason. You know what I mean? Of course you do!

Oh, don't worry. Just keep going. I'll fix it as you write. Okay, chum?
