See the note

All tropes connected with SCPs and specific characters must be posted in the Character list. Here are only tropes connected with SCP Foundation itself.

And I disagree. Some SCP only has single trope applies to it, and many tropes apply to several SCPs. Both should be fine to keep on main tropes list. In fact, tropes connected with SCP Foundation itself is one that should go to character sheet.

SPC, not SCP. That is absolute heresy. Is there some way to change it?

I think that we should move all individual tropes for individual SCPs to their character entries, leaving the main trope pages with tropes relevant to the greater setting. Individual SCPs are more like individual works in a larger franchise than characters in a single work, and I think that more effort should be spent on adding tropes to them.

But I'm a noob, so who knows. Maybe this is not how TV Tropes works.

Rules about adding tropes about new SC Ps/tales? Just thinking that there's great potential for someone to upload some terrible SCP, then add as many tropes about it as possible before it's deleted. Any restrictions?

The Fic May Be Yours, but the Trope Page Is Ours and a simple "don't add add a tropes entry in hopes of promoting ur awoseme new SPC" pretty much cover it. Other than that, probably a good idea to make sure entries are going to stick around before you trope them. I usually give them about two weeks or a solid 30+ rating, whichever comes first, before I call an SCP or tale solidly rooted in place.

Document drops-If you are a member of the Foundation website and you see this please read. This is gonna be a long one. I'm a huge fan of the Foundation site but I couldn't get membership and organize stuff my self so I need a member or two to go to this forum thread here or the back pages of this thread here and help organise a shitload of document drops through-out the UK.

The idea is to print off a bunch of scp pages in ways that make them look like bona fide documents and just leave them in places for people to find so they get interested in the site. Do it wherever you want really as long as you can get away with it. I personally plan to leave a tonne in my university library.

Also if you want you should annotate them with extra notes, really go whole hog, make it seem as if these are left by double agents inside the foundation, in my case I'm going to make it look like some staff at my uni are also Foundation researchers. Do things like leave coffee rings, food stains, margin doodles, do as much as you can to make people believe, even if only for a second that this exists in real life.

Just a guideline as well, try and pick the better SC Ps to use, no 076s or whatever that one is that's literally god because those are too mary sue-ish and try not to do the ones that just kill everything because those aren't really creepy. I'd say not to put the joke SC Ps either or the foundation tales, better to go with transcripts or test logs and try not to go for humorous ones either, as a lot of the humour relies on having read the creepy ones. You want to put the real subtle ones, the ones that gives you chills when you read them and you think about late at night when the lights are off.

This'll probably get deleted but if you're interested, do it. And if you are a member of the SCP site, copy and paste this there.

I don't really understand what this is. Is this a community sort of thing universe that ordinary folk made up and some people made games and stories off of? Or this is all created by one company? Or several companies and people make stuff up ? Can just anyone add in a creature or make a game using SCP?

The SCP foundation is basically one of the most successful shared universes on the internet. Anyone's free to submit stuff to the site, but the community has VERY high standards and gleefully deletes any half-baked or cliche submissions- which is why it is still one of the best.

Should the tropes be separated into subpages now that the page is getting pretty long with all the folders collapsed?

Does the Foundation count as a NGO Super Power?
08:51:17 AM Mar 28th 2013
Sure. Why not?

I know people are just having fun, but writing the page in the style of a SCP entry just makes it a eye-sore.
10:58:33 AM Oct 24th 2013
I guess i like the style, but as a person who has no clue what SCP really is, it's very confusing. A section for clarificatio nwould be nice.

It says on here that there's fine print in Addendum-231-B, on SCP-231's page, but I don't see it at all. Does anyone else see it, and if no-one else does, can I delete it?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it.

yeah,i think we should get rid of the black boxes that aren't from the original site,these add nothing to the page and end up confusing anyone who wants to know where the foundation came from among other things,so should i delete them?

I've gone ahead and removed as much of the redaction as I can manage. Unfortunately, I couldn't figure out what belonged behind some of them. If you know, or have a good guess, feel free to finish my job for me!
