  • The SCP Wiki Needs Your Help to #StandWithSCPRU! The wiki is, essentially, under attack - Andrey Duskin, who you may remember from some months ago for trying to copyright the SCP logo, is back. This time, he's trying to extort SCP-RU into making him an admin and turning the wiki into a glorified advertisement. With your help, we've raised over $50,000 for legal funds, which you can still contribute to here: http://scp.bz/fundraiser While the fight isn't over yet, everyone's support has been amazing. For more information, go here: http://scp.bz/standwithru

You will notice little '📈' emojis beside 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&A:

Q: Can I replace a blurb that you wrote for one of my articles with my own? I'm not satisfied with it.

A: Absolutely. You will always have that option at any point.

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.

Q: I wrote an article and it seems to have stuck. Can I send a blurb of mine to one of the frequent collaborators?

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.
