I noticed a lot of Steven universe fan art recently. Must be really picking up.
Anyways, I've come to realize there is a lot of issues with the SCP Wiki recently. Now before we get into this, you may not agree with what I have to say. That is okay as long you stay mature about it.
But let's get into this.
I was checking out this one topic in their forums and it was about controversial opinions basically. One person said that a lot of the foundation tales should be down voted on the grounds of quality. I haven't really read the foundations tales, but there is no denying that there are overrated foundation tales and the number is debatable. Every bodies opinions and preferences are different.
But either way: I feel the main problem comes from two things. 1. There are too many SCP's now and 2. People are getting lazier and not learning how to properly write this stuff.
I hope the admins are reading over these submissions. But something tells me they are a little disgruntled and just skimming the submissions that look passable. If I am wrong, feel free to correct me. But anyways, I think the biggest issue though is that there is too many SCP's right now. I'll expand on this later on, but for now I will focus the Indirect consequences (Hepyrian refrence for the win). You see, the indirect consequence of having a lot of SCP articles is people are going to lose interest in reading the majority of the articles. They are not going to find out what makes the articles good and bad. It doesn't help that we have potentially disgruntled admins skimming article submissions. And another thing that doesn't help is Trolls, flamers, and Fan boys. You know they are every where, don't deny it.
Another issue with SCP that has arose is what I just said: THERE IS TOO MANY SCP ARTICLES! 2500+ objects and I have found a lot that are very similar too each other. This is why I don't write for the wiki. I don't think I could write something original because it's already been done a million times. I think what makes this worse is that there is going to be series 4 soon. Series 3 is almost done. Minor note: I don't hate any of the current SCP series.
Lets segway into another issue I have found. The Wiki needs to revisit some old SCP's. I will openly admit this is based on personal wants, but I think some will agree with me on this. I think SCP-173 needs to be revisited. Go and look at his article. IT IS PATHETIC. SCP-173 is iconic, scary, and loaded with potential. Plus his classification really needs to be bumped up to Keter. HE SNAPS ANYONE'S NECK AND DOES NOT COMMUNICATE WITH HUMANS. Plus where do the blood and phecies come from? Where does the grinding sound come from? Why can't SCP-173 talk? or can it talk? You see what I mean?
Another SCP I feel that should be revisited is SCP-096. This is SCP needs to be fucking nerfed. What? You though revisiting meant just adding on? No, it can also mean a redo. Shy guy needs to be redone. He is too overpowered. No, putting a bag over his head does not balance him out. This Fucker is immune to everything under the sun including anti-tank guns. Let's not forget he is unrealistic. So an extremely emaciated humanoid can take an anti-tank gun and brush it off like nothing, completely ignoring physics? Bull fucking shit. Also... he even gets pissed if you look at couple of pixels that turn out to be him..... WHAT THE FU
!!?!?! Yeah, read fucking Incident-096-1-A. This SCP needs to be redone, or at the very least: an explanation on why he is invincible. What is he a deity or something?
Alright rage aside, another SCP I feel should be revisited is SCP-002, The Living room. This SCP needs more to it, like SCP-173. Yes, we have a good grasp on what it does, but a little addendum could go a long way. It's a very scary SCP that has a lot of potential like 173. It's a shame it hasn't been revisited and that a certain overpowered emaciated SCP got the the revisit treatment instead. Also I would like to see an incident report for 106. I know he technically has an origin story, but that's just an origin story.
Don't get me wrong guys, I love SCP. But every thing has its flaws. And hey, you may disagree with me. I still think 096 needs some work though, can't change my opinion on that. But what do you guys think on these issues? Feel free to leave a comment below.
Stay Frosty everyone.
