SCP-1000-KO Contest

10th Anniv. 1KKOCON

rating: +28+x

Translator's Note: This is a translation. This contest is for KO articles on the KO site written by KO authors in Korean. This is not a contest held by EN.




On the fine day of the 1st of January, 2013, a small writing wiki opened in a corner of the world wide web. A decade has passed, and lots of things have changed. The people that have been drawn to our chapter of the SCP Foundation have challenged themselves, competed for glory, and worked as a collective to build something truly great. Such contributions have been the soil for our Growth.

Thanks to all those articles, the first series of SCP-KO is now full of fun and intriguing adventures. Now we set another foot in search of a new horizon. The glorious slot marking a decade of the Korean Wiki's growth, SCP-1000-KO, is waiting for you.

How to Participate

Submissions are, obviously, limited to Original SCP Articles. Post an article to the wiki that fits the rules below, and attach the "1000ko" to mark it as an entry. Submissions must be posted by the author (or, if it is a collaboration, one of the collaborators).

Post your entry to the site with the url '1000kocontest-<yourusername>' with your site user name in place of <yourusername.> For example, if a user named random-nickname were to post an entry, it would have the url 1000kocontest-random-nickname. This is to help us avoid duplicate URLs. For collaborations, you can include one or all of the authors. Also, be sure to include your article's title in the page name, like 'SCP-1000-KO: <Title>'

Post your top two to five slot selections, if applicable, in the comment section of your article in case it does not win the position of SCP-1000-KO. When the new series opens, every author will receive their desired slot, starting with the second highest-ranked and going down in order.

Shenanigans: Any contestant who takes unusual and/or negative actions to tamper with votes will be disqualified for the involved contest and potentially banned from the Wiki.
