Made by dentixvoxel - find more of their art here!

The first contest of 2019 started off with a bang! And if you think that's cliche, that's a good thing, because the theme of this contest was cliches! Hooray! Voting closes out soon, so make sure to get your votes in!



You will notice little '📈' 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 :)

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.

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.
