Downchecking this one too. Needs a rewrite for tone and accuracy.
I'm downchecking this one. Doesn't seem right for some reason. Anyone want to take a shot at fixing it?
The following fliers were posted around Central Park 24 hours after destruction of LTE-2101-Warhol.
Implies the GOC posted them. Advise change to explicitly use the term "found".
I agree, and I've been doing my best to keep that in mind. (Not only that, but it's entirely possible that the GOC is aware of organizations the Foundation isn't, and vice versa; hence why the entry on the Church is somewhat more complete than the Foundation's, and the entry on the Chaos Insurgency is more sparse.)
I do think that the descriptions thus far are reasonable, though. Unless there's something specific I'm forgetting?
Noaqiyeum and I have been working on the Threat Entity Typology page. Added the page Sentient Organisms using Clef's "Type-Green" template. Still a little shaky on the style.
Depends on the situation, I'd argue. If it's not a threat, watch it and wait until you figure out a way to destroy it. If it is a threat, capture, contain, monitor, and figure out a way to kill it.
One request: I'd prefer it if we don't just duplicate the Other Organizations list from the SCP wiki. The Foundation and the GOC have different priorities, after all.
Policy question: what does GOC do if it can't terminate something? Capture it? Leave it for the Foundation to sweep up?
I assume these response levels apply not only to Known TEs but also to Unknown and Potential? Or do those simply have a default response level of 1 and 0 until enough information is acquired to reclassify them as Known?
I have this sort of idea of the GOC as Crazy Prepared - they don't really care about stuff they've already killed except insofar as they succeeded in killing it, but instead of their researchers figuring out how these things do work (as the Foundation does), they're busy theorizing how to kill things they haven't even encountered yet by extrapolating from things they already have. So each Termination Procedure would focus on a general type of threat entity, listing their common attributes and recurring flaws, with recommended termination methods for when these flaws are observed in new threats. Possibly including a brief list of LTEs that have already been dealt with with each method, as well as KTEs/UTEs for which each method may be applicable.
I like it…it's similar enough to see what it is, but different enough that it almost feels like a new item. Very good work!
Here is an example of a classic SCP done up in the POV of the Coalition.
A Sample Threat Entity entry.
This one needs to be fleshed out a bit more. Thoughts?
This is the kind of format I'd like to see for emergency procedures: lots of tech-speak, and a bit of a feeling of dread. There should be a feeling that you really don't want to have to resort to this.
You don't, not yet. We're still setting up the wiki's structure.
Hey, how do I edit stuff?
Personally, my use for the wiki will be the following:
Whenever someone at the SCP Foundation says "Hey this isn't indestructable why don't we just kill this thing", an argument that I hate, I'll say "I think that you're looking for here", and then link here.
What do you think would be more of a focal point for this one? I'm thinking maybe a mix of after pre and post action reports, as well as instruction manuals, and some individual case reports.
With the reports, we don't have to have that semi sort of closure we used to have with the SCP, since we could just have encounter logs, or similar things.
Also, instead of of Containment Procedures, the GOC can put emphasis on Termination Procedures instead. Guides on how to kill "supernatural" entities. Perhaps even more detailed reports on other SCP factions, seeing as how the GOC seems to have more in-depth knowledge of some of them than the Foundation, and also since they are more likely to get into violent clashes over the destruction of SCPs.
What I also picture is the GOC secretly preparing the general population for a war against TEs. All of the common myths about how to kill what we percieve as monsters, ie: silver against werewolves, sunlight against vampires, etc. are popularized by the GOC to secretly educate the general population on how to fight TEs without actually raising any alarm bells.
Perhaps we can also play on its WWII occult roots, but I'm not quite sure how to do that yet….
