Our wiki's been around 10 long years. But the Foundation, the GOIs, anomalies, and the world have been around a hell of a lot longer than that. How did things look 20 years ago? 200? 2,000? 20,000? We look forward to you guys telling us.

So what happens now?

Contest staff and CO members will be putting works in their requested slots by descending order from the winner. If you have entered a slot and have not claimed a slot, please do so in the comments now. If you have not claimed a slot by the 20th, you lose right of first refusal for any particular unfilled slot.

Please do not move your articles yourselves.

  • Be good to each other, seriously.
  • Any contestant who takes unusual and/or negative actions to increase their vote total, or decrease that of their competitors, will be disqualified for the involved contest and potentially banned from further contests (and possibly further disciplinary action).
    • Examples of shenanigans include, but are in no way limited to:
      • Downvoting all of your competitors' work within minutes of them being posted
      • Spamming people with PMs about your work
      • Spurring Malicious Upvoting/Downvoting, whether on your work or anyone else's
    • If you're not sure if something counts as shenanigans, then it probably does, but feel free to ask a Community Outreach Member.
  • One entry per user
  • Collaborations are allowed, but that will count as the one entry for all participants
  • Pre-existing drafts are allowed, so long as they have never been posted to the wiki
  • History will be interpreted very broadly. Dinosaurs are just as historical as the Civil War is, for our purposes. Hell, if you can swing Site History, even that'll count. So long as you can explain how your work relates to history as a concept, in any interpretation, it'll be accepted. The theme is here to inspire, not constrain. If you're not sure if it'll count, feel free to ask.
  • Edits to works are allowed.
  • Contest entries will undergo normal deletion processes.
  • The prize, obviously, is the SCP-4000 slot. Runners up get to choose other Series V slots in order of place.

Contest Minions- Bother these people

Good luck, and here's to another 10 fantastic years!

Many thanks to Zhange for the lovely banner!
