  • SCP-173 Original 4chan post - This cropped up on reddit this month and caused a bit of a stir, with good reason. As it implies, this is the closest thing we have to original 4chan thread for SCP-173 and some of the other objects. Check it out!
  • And Then I Died IV - Series 2 - Shaggydredlocks restarted this old game! The premise is simple: someone writes a small entry ending with 'and then I died' featuring a single SCP and you guess what SCP did the killing! If you guess correctly, then it's your turn to write an entry. We're eleven entries in so far and this last one seems to be quite the head scratcher. Go and give it a go!

Editor's Choice

You will notice little 'πŸ“ˆ' 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 :)

Here is our Halloween advent calendar of art (Click the thumbnails to see the artworks in full):

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.
