What this is

A bunch of miscellaneous CSS 'improvements' that I, CroquemboucheCroquembouche, use on a bunch of pages because I think it makes them easier to deal with.

The changes this component makes are bunch of really trivial modifications to ease the writing experience and to make documenting components/themes a bit easier (which I do a lot). It doesn't change anything about the page visually for the reader — the changes are for the writer.

I wouldn't expect translations of articles that use this component to also use this component, unless the translator likes it and would want to use it anyway.

This component probably won't conflict with other components or themes, and even if it does, it probably won't matter too much.


On any wiki:

[[include :scp-wiki:component:croqstyle]]

This component is designed to be used on other components. When using on another component, be sure to add this inside the component's [[iftags]] block, so that users of your component are not forced into also using Croqstyle.

Related components

Other personal styling components (which change just a couple things):

Personal styling themes (which are visual overhauls):

CSS changes

Reasonably-sized footnotes

Stops footnotes from being a million miles wide, so that you can actually read them.

.hovertip { max-width: 400px; }

Monospace edit/code

Makes the edit textbox monospace, and also changes all monospace text to Fira Code, the obviously superior monospace font.

@import url(';700&display=swap');
:root { --mono-font: "Fira Code", Cousine, monospace; }
#edit-page-textarea, .code pre, .code p, .code, tt, .page-source { font-family: var(--mono-font); }
.code pre * { white-space: pre; }
.code *, .pre * { font-feature-settings: unset; }

Teletype backgrounds

Adds a light grey background to <tt> elements ({{text}}), so code snippets stand out more.

tt {
  background-color: var(--swatch-something-bhl-idk-will-fix-later, #f4f4f4);
  font-size: 85%;
  padding: 0.2em 0.4em;
  margin: 0;
  border-radius: 6px;

No more bigfaces

Stops big pictures from appearing when you hover over someone's avatar image, because they're stupid and really annoying and you can just click on them if you want to see the big version.

.avatar-hover { display: none !important; }

Breaky breaky

Any text inside a div with class nobreak has line-wrapping happen between every letter.

.nobreak { word-break: break-all; }

Code colours

Add my terminal's code colours as variables. Maybe I'll change this to a more common terminal theme like Monokai or something at some point, but for now it's just my personal theme, which is derived from Tomorrow Night Eighties.

Also, adding the .terminal class to a fake code block as [[div class="code terminal"]] gives it a sort of pseudo-terminal look with a dark background. Doesn't work with [[code]], because Wikidot inserts a bunch of syntax highlighting that you can't change yourself without a bunch of CSS. Use it for non-[[code]] code snippets only.

Quick tool to colourise a 'standard' Wikidot component usage example with the above vars: link

:root {
  --c-bg: #393939;
  --c-syntax: #e0e0e0;
  --c-comment: #999999;
  --c-error: #f2777a;
  --c-value: #f99157;
  --c-symbol: #ffcc66;
  --c-string: #99cc99;
  --c-operator: #66cccc;
  --c-builtin: #70a7df;
  --c-keyword: #cc99cc;
.terminal, .terminal > .code {
  color: var(--c-syntax);
  background: var(--c-bg);
  border: 0.4rem solid var(--c-comment);
  border-radius: 1rem;

Debug mode

Draw lines around anything inside .debug-mode. The colour of the lines is red but defers to CSS variable --debug-colour.

You can also add div.debug-info.over and div.debug-info.under inside an element to annotate the debug boxes — though you'll need to make sure to leave enough vertical space that the annotation doesn't overlap the thing above or below it.

…like this!

.debug-mode, .debug-mode *, .debug-mode *::before, .debug-mode *::after {
  outline: 1px solid var(--debug-colour, red);
  position: relative;
.debug-info {
  position: absolute;
  left: 50%;
  transform: translateX(-50%);
  font-family: 'Fira Code', monospace;
  font-size: 1rem;
  white-space: nowrap;
.debug-info.over { top: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info.under { bottom: -2.5rem; }
.debug-info p { margin: 0; }

The NARC Device.

SPECIAL CONTAINMENT PROCEDURES: As the inclusion of SCP-7176-A into SCP-7176 makes it fundamentally self-containing, no other containment procedures are necessary for it at this time. A Nirvana-class After-Dimensional Relay Console Device (NARC) has been outfitted within an isolated testing chamber located in the Memetic Research Lab. It is solely to be used for the purpose of monthly communication with SCP-7176.

Individuals who possess a Cognitive Resistance Value (or CRV) lower than 45 are strictly prohibited from ever interacting with the NARC Device. Excess infohazards reconstructed from the Device are to be disposed of via mechanical means.

DESCRIPTION: SCP-7176 is the designation given to a room located somewhere in Site-400, though its exact location is as-of-yet unknown. SCP-7176 is approximately 5x5x5 meters in height and length, with its walls, floor, and ceiling being completely painted white. No other information regarding SCP-7176's interior, except that it lacks any doors or windows, is available at this time.

No physical or conceptual objects/entities are able to naturally enter SCP-7176, nor can any objects/entities naturally exit out of it. As such, all that occurs within SCP-7176 remains in SCP-7176 indefinitely.

SCP-7176-A refers to Senior Researcher Zastryal Vnutri, previously a memeticist for Site-400's Department of Memetic and Countermemetic Research. He is an adult male of Russian descent, with blue eyes and a brown beard. Following the successful enactment of Project ÁSPRO, SCP-7176-A is now permanently located in SCP-7176 and is a central component of the anomaly.

Dr. Kelly: Evaluation accepted. Thank you for your work, -A.

SCP-7176-A: …Pleasure.

<End Log>

Addendum 7176-1, Phenomenological Overvy: SCP-7176 was first discovered on the 22nd of July, 2007, after it was abruptly observed by Dr. Zastryal Vnutri during his bi-annual CRV evaluation. Shortly after, he self-administered several Class-W mnestics, before reporting the phenomenon to his then Department Co-Head, Dr. Kyran Kelly.

It was ultimately realized that SCP-7176 was the natural byproduct created following the Department of Metafictional Research's recent discovery of SCP-███. While information regarding SCP-7176 was lacking, it was overall decided that its properties could be used in furthering the Foundation's research into metafiction and pataphysics.

With approval from Site-400's current site director, Project ÁSPRO was developed and put into effect, with the Department of Memetic and Countermemetic Research managing its continued operational status. Dr. Vnutri volunteered himself to be the first (and only) SCP-7176-A instance that would be relocated within SCP-7176. As of this document, Project ÁSPRO has not overseen any sort of failures whatsoever.

Addendum 7176-2, Project ÁSPRO: The original proposal dossier for Project ÁSPRO were spearheaded by multiple Foundation personnel, including Dr. Kyran Kelly, Dr. Zastryal Vnutri, and Dr. Maximilian Kaydence (Department of Metafictional Research). To summarize, its purpose is to utilize the true nature of SCP-7176's properties and apply them to the Foundation's core structure.

Approval of Project ÁSPRO did not require extensive review and evaluation by any related parties, as it was found that the constituents necessary for its proper enactment were not difficult to fund and possess. This included:

  • The Saxon-Menard Fourth-Dimensional Flat-linear Hyper-Engine
  • The individual who would be SCP-7176-A (Dr. Zastryal Vnutri)
  • ███ ███████'█ █████, recovered from the components of the now-defunct Project Dammerung.
  • A single dose of potassium cyanide.

Of note, during Project ÁSPRO's enactment process, the entirety of Site-400's personnel reported that they continuously heard several noises described as similar to "laughing and a typewriter being used". These noises supposedly emanated from where Project ÁSPRO was undergoing its final inclusion process, though personnel present did not note any unusual occurrences.

Addendum 7176-3, Temporary Replacement: Following xeir unruly engagement with an otherwise unrelated anomaly, Dr. Kyran Kelly (and all other associated personnel) was put under disciplinary leave by order of Site-400's Administration and Oversight Section. In xeir place will be Junior Researcher David Kobolsky, the only other individual possessing the CRV necessary to interact with the NARC Device.

Jr. Researcher Kobolsky was covertly informed of SCP-7176's and SCP-7176-A's underlying nature, along with the nature of his position as its Assigned Communicator. Following the completion of his task, he was unpremeditatedly assigned to Project ÁSPRO as per the orders of Dr. Maximillian Kaydence. A sufficient amount of hypnestics was administered to Jr. Researcher Kobolsky for him to readily accept his new position.

Addendum 7176-4, Related Document: To provide additional information to personnel recently transferred to Project ÁSPRO and SCP-7176 as a whole, Dr. Maximilian Kaydence wrote the following research introductory paper, with below an excerpt of what he thought was the most important and noteworthy section:

On the Nature of Metafiction: Why Kill Our Gods When We Can Kill Godhood Itself?

by Dr. Maximilian Kaydence

III. Why We Choose To Exist, When Choice Is An Illusion


In the most basic of terms, an initiumortypical is an individual whose death/absence results in the figurative trigger for the spontaneous precipitation of the narrative being pulled. Usually, they serve no other purpose than to be present as soon as their associated narrative emerges and is incepted to baseline reality. Spotting initiumortypicals has been evidently difficult, as the inherent problem of detecting the emergence of their respective narratives often causes its properties and effects to be quickly negated and counterbalanced.

Initiumortypicals are almost always referred to in a plural sense, as an instance of a single initiumortypical is extremely rare. They are often killed in numbers, with the purpose of exacting the kind of tragedy no one truly cares about. For example, when a man is murdered and the detective has to solve his case by interviewing people close to him, that man is not an initiumortypical. He's an occisusestypical, an individual whose past life matters in such a way that it develops the ongoing narrative.

On the contrary, when people from a city are ruthlessly killed and slaughtered by a large potentially world-ending Kaiju and the government has to respond to the crisis, those tragically dead people are initiumortypicals. A very small majority of us may mourn them for a moment, but our attention will eventually be diverted to focus on the main narrative that was triggered. In a way, these people simply exist in the world to be swiftly killed in the next one.

That's more tragic than anything.

Addendum 7176-5, Results of Project: As of this document, Project ÁSPRO has been in operation for over a decade. While it is by all means certain that there will be much more to come, the following are some of the essential results culminated from Project ÁSPRO, redeemed by the joint efforts of both the Department of Memetic and Countermemetic Research and the Department of Metafictional Research:

  1. While the Foundation's classification of Keter and Apollyon might prove otherwise, it and its core personnel shall never bow their heads and compromise with the anomalous, even in the wretched face of Armageddon.
  2. While the Foundation's future is uncertain, as there are invariably too many, it and its core personnel shall always remain an all-knowing and omnipotent presence within their existence.
  3. While the idea of the Foundation achieving true freedom and free will is a far distant ambition, truer words are written by it and its core personnel that everything must in due course end, as all things should be.

The above has been sent via to all known Foundation personnel regardless of rank, including the Overseer Council and the Administrator himself. Changes in behavior and personality will be regularly assessed.

Surveillance Video 7176/#276-GID

Date: 01/01/2021


Footage shows the Memetic Research Lab being bathed in a deep but bright red color. Its emergency lights flash continuously, signifying that an evacuation is taking place. Despite being in this state, the Research Lab is virtually silent, with only the sound of soft breathing and the shuffling of feet.

The only three individuals present in the Research Lab are standing next to each other, shoulder to shoulder, in front of the its entrance/exit door. The first individual is Junior Researcher David Kobolsky, shivering while wiping his nose and hugging himself. Warm breath blows from his mouth as he lets out a deep sigh.

The second individual is Dr. Maximilian Kaydence, his eyebrows knitted together as he focuses himself in studying a piece of documentation that he's holding close to his face. His face expresses confusion and dissatisfaction upon reaching the end of the document. The third and final individual is Dr. Kyran Kelly, arms crossed as xe checks the time on xeir wristwatch. Xe pinches the bridge of xeir nose, but the impatient tapping of xeir foot persists.

Rs. Kobolsky: Why is this place so damn cold? (sneezes)

Dr. Kelly: Turned off the heater. Might agitate the anomaly. You never know.

Rs. Kobolsky: (coughs) Why am I here anyways?

Dr. Kaydence: Even if it was a little bit, you talked with him as an Assigned Communicator. You're needed here for stuff to make sense and even the score.

Dr. Kelly: (motioning towards Dr. Kaydence) And plus, this guy is shit at starting conversation. It would've been a hassle to get annoyed by his complaining.

Dr. Kaydence: Fuck you, Kelly. (holds up the document) And fuck whoever wrote this crap too. I'm barely in it. I wouldn't have agree with the joint Department schtick if this is how shit turned out.

Rs. Kobolsky: But you're here now, aren't you?

Dr. Kaydence: Well, obviously, I wouldn't be in a minute. I read the part with you too. You're the same as me.

Rs. Kobolsky: I don't mind.

Dr. Kelly: He doesn't mind.

Dr. Kaydence: Go to Hell, Kelly.

Dr. Kelly: Isn't that the reason why we're all here? (chuckles)

The emergency lights suddenly began flickering intermittently, somehow casting deformed shadows within the Research Lab. A small faint noise, similar to screaming, becomes audible. Dr. Kaydence takes a step back and scans his surrounding, as Junior Researcher Kobolsky awkwardly attempts to hide behind him. Dr. Kelly does not change from xeir original position.

Dr. Kelly: He's coming. Leave.

Dr. Kaydence: About damn time. C'mon, we're up.

Rs. Kobolsky: Roger.

Dr. Kaydence grabs Junior Researcher Kobolsky's shoulder and leads him to the entrance/exit door. Both of them depart, leaving behind Dr. Kelly alone in the Research Lab. Xe sighs and rubs xeir eyes, before sitting xemselves on a nearby stool.

A floating white cube spontaneously manifested in the center of the Research Lab, though Dr. Kelly does not appear to be bemused. The cube slowly grows in size, eventually enveloping most of the objects within the Research Lab and bathing it in a bright white hue. Dr. Kelly covers xeir eyes, momentarily blinded. The screaming sound halts.

From the center of the cube's source, a silhouette of a humanoid individual becomes visible. It began walking towards Dr. Kelly, before seemingly hesitating and staying in place.

Dr. Kelly: Greetings, -A.

SCP-7176-A: Hello, Kyran.

SCP-7176-A: All quiet on the Western front?

SCP-7176-A: Personally, I view deicide as a sin.

Dr. Kelly: Don't lie. You were never religious, you said so. And this isn't deicide. This is liberation. Besides, to say it is a sin is more of an insult to them than to us.

SCP-7176-A: Then when will my service to the Foundation end?

Dr. Kelly: It won't. Not until we surrender in the face of Armageddon.

SCP-7176-A: But that-

Dr. Kelly: Exactly.

Several seconds of silence.

SCP-7176-A: I don't feel upset.

Dr. Kelly: You're not supposed to. Not while you're here.

SCP-7176-A: Did you do this to me? Am I dead?

Dr. Kelly: Answering that question would take up a lot of our time, unfortunately. But the bottom line is that you did this to yourself.

SCP-7176-A: And you too?

Dr. Kelly: (chuckles) No. Kaydence said my death will be much more significant and established than yours in the coming future. I will die a glorious death, he said. Looking at how things are, it's hard to deny it.

SCP-7176-A: I'm starting to regret.

Dr. Kelly: Don't regret now, -A. Now is not exactly a good time. In fact, for you, all times are not good times. That's how you wrote it, if I remember correctly. Anyways, speaking of time-

SCP-7176-A: Who do you work for?

Dr. Kelly: What? Oh, heh, good one. (pauses) The SCP Foundation and no other.

SCP-7176-A: Thank you for your work, Dr. Kelly.

Dr. Kelly: A pleasure.

The humanoid individual turns around and retreats back to the cube's source. The cube then shrinks, returning the color of the Research Lab, whose emergency lights had since been already turned off. The cube quickly demanifest, leaving Dr. Kelly alone.

The entrance/exit door opens, and decontamination teams enter and began conducting depuration of hostile infohazards from the Research Lab. They are followed by Dr. Kaydence and Junior Researcher Kobolsky shortly after, who grabs the now unconscious Dr. Kelly by xeir arms and carries xem to the Health and Pathological Infirmary.


Addendum 7176-6, Untitled:


"Reclassify SCP-7176 as Thaumiel. It is only a matter of time." (Dr. Kaydence)
