SCP-6000 Contest: Nature!

Nature! From the basics of life on earth, animals, plants, to the large scale components, ecosystems, extinctions, the atmosphere, this site has a rich history of articles that touch on, or are inspired by, the natural world. And beyond that, on a fundamental level, it’s a violation of the proverbial laws of nature that makes an SCP an SCP, isn’t it? There’s quite a lot to do with this one, and I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

Another series come and gone! It’s absolutely incredible, and it’s my personal honor to be able to help usher in a new series for the third(!!!) time! I remember back when I joined, no one thought the site would come as far as it has, in both quantity and quality, and it shocks me even to this day. Here’s to another thousand!

To Enter:

Post your entry to the site with the url '6000contest<yourusername>' with your site user name in place of <yourusername.> For example, if a user named TroyL were to post an entry it would have the url 6000contesttroyl. This page must be posted by you (or, if it is a collaboration, one of the partners). Add the tag "6000" to your entry so it shows up on this page.

Do not post before posting opens; this will result in a disqualification!

Additionally, authors are required to post their top five slot selections (excluding the 6000), in descending order if applicable, in the comments of their piece. Failure to do so may result in you losing your place in the queue and your article being assigned an arbitrary placement.

Rules

  • Be good to each other, seriously.
  • Placing is based on net vote total, in descending order.
  • 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
    • Voting should be based on the merits of the article alone, not whether or not you believe it deserves to win the contest. Theme-related disqualification is determined by the contest marshals. Voting on a piece based on your desire to see it win or lose the contest is grounds for disqualification.
    • 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
  • 'Nature' shall be interpreted very broadly. So long as you can explain how your work relates to nature as a concept, in any interpretation, it'll likely be accepted. The theme is here to inspire, not constrain. If you're not sure if it'll count, feel free to ask one of the contest marshals listed below.
  • Edits to works are allowed.
  • Contest entries will undergo normal deletion processes.
  • The prize, obviously, is the SCP-6000 slot. Runners up get to choose other Series VII slots in order of place.
  • All Contest Marshals have the ability to disqualify entries for violations of the above-listed rules, egregiously poor sportsmanship not otherwise enumerated, or failure to fit the theme. All decisions are appealable to ProcyonLotorProcyonLotor and/or taylor_itkintaylor_itkin.
