The SCP Foundation is a creative writing website centered around the concept of a fictional organization of the same name dedicated to containing anomalous entities and preventing widespread public knowledge of both said entities and the existence of the Foundation entirely. The wiki itself is hosted by Wikidot and is managed by an arrogant team of left-wing-biased, LGBTQA+ staff members who are hell-bent on turning a once apolitical writing site into Tumblr 2.0 by at least 2016. In order to write for the SCP wiki, an applicant must be at least fifteen years of age (as is enforced by snobby, holier-than-thou college kids with degrees in gender studies and oversensitiveness), demonstrate decent grammatical skills, and demonstrate a maturity level befitting a fifteen-year-old in general. This is not difficult, as the maturity level of a fifteen-year-old is the norm for the SCP wiki's userbase, which can be attributed to the sociological views of the staff mentioned above.
In-universe, the SCP Foundation is approximately 50% gnarly and 50% cringe-worthy. Articles on the SCP wiki consist of mainly SCP objects (the most infamous example being SCP-173; wiki users will attack you if you ask them if the Weeping Angels of Superdoctortumblr-Wholock came first, as they actually did not) which are formatted in a manner similar to this article, in that they are written in clinical diction, use false percentages and statistics, and describe a concept that most likely needs to be kept behind several hundred feet of lead and concrete on an average day. The primary alternative to an SCP article is a Tale, which is an unnecessarily capitalized term for a story. Tales almost always deal with the grand adventures and moral/existential conflict of people living and working in one of the Foundation's many Sites (the most frequently referenced of which is Site 19, where 90 percent of the 50 percent aforementioned cringe-worthy-ness takes place), but can also be about apocalyptic events written in a style overflowing with purple prose, sentient/sapient SCP objects wishing they weren't forced to live in a box, or even totally canon gay sex between two prominent and overused staff author avatars.
The SCP authors are very arrogants, talking endlessly about their "high standard". In order to write on their wiki, you have to fill a fucking application (no joke), respect stupidly complex sets of guidelines, and they even have a fucking historian dedicated to writing the Foundation's story from an IRL perspective. It even reaches ridiculous proportions, when they call out the infinitely more popular Cthulhu for being boring and not meeting their "high criterias", forgetting that the Foundation itself is only a shitty Delta Green ripoff, which is Cthulhu-based (and better in every way).
Ironically, one of their most high-voted articles can be summed up at "I'm writing an articles with images, look how clever I am!". So much for the "high standards that event Cthulhu can't mesure up to".
Though the userbase of the main wiki can be somewhat laughable at times, it is mostly comprised of people who can actually spell (as opposed to the userbase of the Creepypasta wiki) and are, for the most part, decent writers. However, thanks to Tumblr, Tumblr, Tumblr, and the concept of fanfiction in general, the satellite fandom of the SCP universe has caused cringe levels in exposed subjects to spike by 90 percent in the last two years, with no signs of decreasing. The main contributor to this effect is of course the [REDACTED], which seems to have a memetic effect that causes approximately 20 percent of witnesses to be affected in some manner. Said effects range from feeling compelled to draw erotic images of author avatars (again), write really awkward gay smut (of the sort that doesn't make it onto the main wiki), or create an entire blog dedicated to people's fetishistic lust for completely non-human entities and/or desire to watch author avatars touch each other weird.
Regardless of these disturbing events, the horrors of commonplace fangirling are not to be overlooked; studies show that 100 percent of the satellite fandom is involved in not only the [REDACTED], but also the culturally blasphemous SCP Containment Breach, a game that has caused death or severe psychological damage in 90 percent of SCP wiki members, who often desperately scream incomprehensible statements such as "there is no MTF Nine-Tailed-Fox!" and "Site 19 would not house 106 and 096 in the same containment wing!" upon onset of psychological hysteria/death/donning of an SCP-682 fursuit.
Demographic and Cultural Information
The staff of the SCP wiki are tasked with maintaining order on the site, which can range from simple, normal tasks such as forum moderation to complete overreaction and abuse of power, sometimes in the false name of some greater societal goal. An example of this occurring on the wiki's forums would play out as follows:
Normal user: The sky is blue
Staff member: STAFF POST - CLOSED
Normal user: The sky is blue
Staff member: This behavior is unacceptable. Please read over the forum guidelines and the Guide to Newbies again, or disciplinary action will be taken.
Another common trend on the SCP wiki is to pretend to be cold, calculating, and logical in a manner similar to the people of the wiki's fictional counterpart, but then proceed to drastically overreact to everything, such as in the example below:
Normal user: The sky is blue
Staff member: As a general rule, it's important to remember how what you're saying might be interpreted by your peers, even if you don't intend anything negative. I got a PM from a concerned user - they found your post extremely triggering. Please be more considerate when stating your opinion on the color of the sky in future cases.
An important aspect of both the fictional and factual versions of the SCP Foundation is the popular saying "The Foundation is cold, not cruel." This saying is often thrown around the staff site's forums when staff members want to assure themselves that banning someone "because they're annoying" is perfectly acceptable; likewise, it is also thrown around office rooms and containment chambers in Sites when employees want to assure themselves that putting a human being in a jail cell because they have magical powers is perfectly acceptable, and obviously for the greater good. Though this catchphrase is somewhat limited, its cultural following is not. When a user of the wiki becomes perplexed by the aforementioned ever-growing liberal bias within the staff regime, said user must remind themselves that partakers in a culture supporting and glorifying moral ambiguity, excessive regulation, and oligarchical leadership with little concern for personal freedom will invariably lean towards the political left.
As mentioned before, the SCP wiki has became a SJW hideout. You can find stuff like members being triggered by a doorknob being called sexy. Or some idioms like "intersex, transgender, and nonbinary personnel are prohibited from working with, handling, or approaching SCP-847", in an article which was rewritten for being too sexist (just read its discussion page). They also managed to have
an horribly cringy "tale" two wannabe novels starring a trans.
Thing is, it's not only about some shitty stories, it's also about censorship. Article guidelines now basically forbids to talk about rape, as it is triggering. Yes, on a fucking horror writing website, some shit gets censored because it's triggering. Previous articles which mentioned rape were re-written, like SCP-847, or SCP-835, which was purged by his own author of any mention of rape, and even SCP-231, one of the most famous SCPs, in which a loli needs to be constantly raped otherwise it would be the end of the world.
There is a section on their wiki about a so-called "Heritage Collection", supposed to be the best articles of the old days, the stuff people should read and get inspiration from if they want to write some SCPs. They're all so shitty it's a wonder the fags of the Foundation are still arrogant jerks boasting about their so-called "high standards".
- SCP-055 [unknown]: Something no one can remember, both in universe and in real life, because it's so boring that you'll forget it very quickly.
- SCP-076 Able: An animu-like Mary Sue with a big sword. Pure teenage power fantasy.
- SCP-087 The Stairwell: It's an underground dark stairwell with something inside that wants to eat you or something. One of the few ones of this list which doesn't suck balls.
- SCP-093 Red Sea Object: Some vast dimension of pointlessness where they lose countless amounts of D-Class by sending them in for no particular reason. Actually manage to be a pleasant read for the most part, except for the end part, which is just plain bad.
- SCP-173 The Sculpture: Exactly the same thing as Doctor Who's weeping angels, but it came first, so it's automatically better, right?
- SCP-231 Special Personnel Requirements: It's the SCP with Little Miss Rapedalot mentioned in the SJW part of this article.
- SCP-239 The Witch Child: A reality-bender loli. Totally not a ripoff of anything.
- SCP-343 "God": Some overpowered old fag.
- SCP-500 Panacea: Pills which cures everything. Clever and original, isn't it?
- SCP-682 Hard-to-Destroy Reptile: A stupidly immortal lizard, all the while their own guidelines frown on SCPs whose only quirk is to be indestructible just for the sake of being indestructible. It's telling that their own parody of it is better than the original article.
- SCP-701 The Hanged King's Tragedy: Thank God they strictly frobad plagiarism in the rules, otherwise some SCPs might just be blatant ripoffs of other, infinitely more popular things. Like the King in Yellow, for example.
- SCP-882 A Machine: Some cogs-thingy which gets worshipped. No one cares how retarded it is, as long as it's steampunk.
- SCP-914 The Clockworks: It takes things and makes them better. Except for the average SCP author writing skill, because they're too arrogants to be salvagable.
- SCP-963 Immortality: Mary Sue author-avatar.
Groups of Interest
There are other groups in the same universe as the Foundation. Or rather, shitty excuses for groups. Most of them are boring as fuck, and nobody cares about them because of that.
- The Global Occult Coalition: Aka the DESTROY DESTROY DESTROY guys. Also the name of a spinoff site.
- Chaos Insurgency: Cartoony villains with no originality whatsoever.
- Church of Broken God: Scientology WITH GEARS; one of the few actually interesting groups.
- Marshall, Carter and Dark Ltd.: Jews who buy weird shit.
- The Serpent's Hand: PETA but more SJW
- Are We Cool Yet?: Paranormal version of Improv Everywhere
- Sarkic Cult: Yet another Cthulhu cult ripoff; still one of the best groups of interest.
There are tons of others, like Alexylva University, but no one cares about them because they're bland as fuck.
