This is an SCP Wiki Staff Workbench.

DO NOT TOUCH THIS PAGE WITHOUT PERMISSION

This is a series showing off news from the site, articles from the past month1, and fan-content for you to check out and discover! Be sure to leave a comment with your thoughts!

From the Editorial Desk -

Transparency in governance is something that we care a great deal about. We strive to showcase the vast majority of the actions Staff takes on 05 Command and in the deletions threads. Obviously, keeping track of every single minor change is impossible, the records-keeping side alone of such things would often take longer than the change itself. So while we may not keep track of every staffpost we make in the forums or every time a staff member adds a title or a rating module to a mainsite piece, we do record all of the major decisions we make on that site.

There has been a great deal of conversation lately about transparency, because it is also important to showcase the reasons behind why we make the decisions that we make. While this is not always possible due to a wide variety of concerns, we do strive to give rationale behind our decision-making process whenever possible. Additionally, there is a fine line between transparency and an outright invasion of privacy.

Our goal is to showcase the decisions we’ve made, why we’ve made them, and how we’re going about implementing them, but to do so in a way that doesn’t also impinge upon the privacy and mental health of the staff members who are volunteering to get the work done. While not all of you have had the opportunity to work in some sort of customer service capacity, a great many of you probably have. Those of you that have had that experience know first-hand how difficult it can be to maintain “retail mode” day in and day out. Even the most extroverted and genial of people can find themselves facing burnout when working through such a thing, which is why there are staff rooms and vacations.

The SCP wiki is a project that we all love and engage in on many different levels. While some users have found ways to monetize their usage of the site through youtube, podcasting, etc., staff members do what they do entirely without monetary recompense. We do what we do out of a love for the site and a love for the community that we serve. In that vein, we try to find a balance between doing what we can to adequately respond to the transparency requests of the general community, while also attempting to foster a healthy and fun work environment for the people that work behind the scenes to ensure everything keeps functioning properly.

We will always do our best to provide everyone with as much up front information as we can about what’s going on behind the scenes. In fact, the revamp of the Site News to become even more of a way to showcase the doings of staff is a part of that effort. Even so, we will not always be able to provide transparency in a way that everyone will appreciate. Every day we discuss ways to improve, and I ask everyone to be patient with us as we work towards finding that perfect balance.

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 reporters?

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.
