Why I would be a good liaison: As a long time member of this community I've had my hands in both sides of the kinds of issues that would need to be addressed by users in these town hall threads. I served the wiki for a couple of years as a staff moderator and Disciplinary Captain, but more recently I have acted as an opposing voice directed at staff to address issues that myself and others have felt were either unjust or unfair. I fully believe that common understanding can be reached between staff members and the community they moderate, and would eagerly accept the opportunity to assist in that process.

This position as Liaison is more than just a means by which the community can express its concerns to staff - it is a position of advocacy for anyone who feels as if their voice is just one among many. As an advocate I feel that my position within this community would carry enough weight to project these cares and concerns to the persons who need to hear them the most, and I would be able to engage with those staff members in a constructive and diplomatic way.

If nothing else, I have worked very hard over the last few years to prove that I have both the community and the wiki's best interests at heart, and would do everything in my power to serve those interests to the best of my ability.

I loved this article the whole way through! Like I said in crit, the connection between the Mayan Second World and KT Mass Extinction was ingenious!

I like how you included a Group of Interest and the concept is pretty neat, but I did have a few questions for you.

  • What do you mean by, “reproduce?” What would it create as its offspring?
  • Can the SCP speak or while on electronics, type sentences?
  • Are there any test logs or interviews with this SCP?
  • You called it a disease, how is this a disease?
A Few Questions by Doctor SaxonDoctor Saxon, 16 May 2021 21:35

Elevator Pitch:

  • Roots with a mind of their own
  • The roots are quick and despise humanity, they consume human bodies
  • The SCP can move it’s roots wherever it pleases as long as nothing is in the way

Central Narrative:

  • There is no information on how the Foundation received this SCP, but it’s contained in a chamber with a door, a hallway, and another door. Neither of the doors should be opened at the same time.
  • A few tests are ran and a test shows that it will wrap it’s roots around somebody and in two days the roots will move back and any non-organic parts of the body such as braces or clothing will remain but the body itself will have been “consumed.”
  • Another test ran shows that if non-organic bug spray is put on then the roots can’t make a “cocoon” around them.
  • An interview is ran by Doctor Jackson and it writes words with it’s roots on the wall. It’s roots are titled to SCP-6000-A.
  • During the interview, the roots break through the glass and consume everybody in the viewing room. The glass is replaced with the strongest glass in the world, metallic glass.

Hook/Attention Grabber:

  • I’ve done some research and I’ve seen no other SCP like this, it’s somewhat of an original concept
  • The way it consumes bodies except leaves things out like braces or clothing is interesting, especially how the body is just gone and there is no sign of it left
  • Most other contestants for the SCP-6000 contest are doing animals or trees, but I chose to do something uncommon, the roots

Additional Notes
N/A

So… Here it is, the rewrite of SCP-1559.

Alt title: "The Origins of a Chair"

by TwilitbeingTwilitbeing, 16 May 2021 20:59

Seeking Greenlights: Put yes or no.

Page Type: SCP Article

Elevator Pitch:

- SCP is an anomalous disease that is capable of transferring nearly instantly between organic and electronic material.

- SCP is capable of living and reproducing near identically in either environment.

- SCP is capable of being able to survive on surfaces for 48 hours.

- SCP is capable of living, moving across and reproducing within local internet if it finds the security to be easily breachable

- SCP is hinted at being the creation of Anderson Robotics

Central Narrative: This SCP is Anderson Robotics' attempt at creating an anomaly that would cease the gap between biological organisms and those that are composed of electrics. This anomalous disease would prove to be a pretty significant discovery in their efforts to "play god" and close the gap between biological and inorganic.

Hook/Attention-Grabber: Makes the reader question how close can mechanical and biological become? Could they eventually become indistinguishable?

Additional Notes: Based on the Hollinwell Incident. Also debating on whether the disease should be capable of turning subjects into zombie-like instances after prolonged exposure.

Alright. Thanks for the suggestion.

If you have headphones on at a certain point you will hear hello in your right ear. I dont remember that from reading this before

I feel personally attacked by this article

Honestly this isn't a very interesting anomaly. It's a fridge that makes you want to stay inside and maybe kidnaps people who pass out. There's no real story here to add more meat to the article. Perhaps if you included some testing or exploration logs to help show us where the bodies go there'd be something, but as it stands there's really nothing of interest here.

I dunno. Does it really count as a rewrite if someone just deletes like 90 % of an article and writes something else entirely? Don't get me wrong, this is not really bad, but I feel like it would have been better as its own completely new scp. Maybe this site has a different understanding of the term but to me a 'rewrite' would be an attempt to preserve as much of the original author's work as possible and only change stuff that actually doesn't meet certain quality criteria or goes against some recently updated site rules or whatever. So, like, just change her to adult, remove the need for her being naked 24/7 (and maybe also change her required nutrition) and that should be good enough. Kinda like what Avalon3131 suggested.

Unless, of course, you wanted to make this entry entirely sfw and child friendly, then I can certainly see why it needed to be all but deleted and replaced by something else entirely. But I don't really see why someone would want to do this on a site which is by nature not exactly child friendly or sfw, so that can't have been the reason for rewriting replacing it.

Good suggestions btw, Avalon, now that's what I'd call an actual rewrite. Changed a bit of stuff to improve the actual quality of the article as well as adress the issues that have been brought up against the original, gave a bit more background information while still keeping it ambiguous enough to fit the general tone of articles on this website and still keeping most of the original intact. Very well done.

Huh... by LuzilyoLuzilyo, 16 May 2021 20:15

But then the anomalous effect would render the trainee to become more docile or anxious to perform actions mentioned. Felt the effect might be a bit counterintuitive.

to address, this is from the description:

The suggestibility and other psychological effects fade with time, but recollections of the content of an SCP-5904 instance are highly resistant to amnesticization.

They would not continue to be suggestible after the effect wear off, but the information contained within the VHS tapes (meaning the attitudes towards the employees and "guiding light" principles) would stick with a subject.

SCP-5289 is a large 19th century mirror mostly composed of wood and glass, with a small metallic rim lining the various edges of the mirror. It weighs around 13.6 kilograms and stands 182 centimeters tall. SCP-5289 is capable of causing 3 entities to manifest whenever the reflective segment of the mirror is viewed for a prolonged period of time (Entities have formally been designated SCP-5289-1).

SCP-5226, or the lifespan tree, is an indestructible apple tree measuring two meters in diameter, and five meters in height, the apples this tree produces, designated SCP-5226-1 are capable of altering the eater’s age, all instances of SCP-5226-1 have the age they will make the eater engraved in them as soon as they sprout. Instances of SCP-5226-1 not only sprout fully grown, but are damageable by anything but teeth, and can only be eaten by humans.
