Forum Criticism Reports

The Forum Criticism Team is the staff team of the SCP Wiki concerned with providing critique on the Ideas Critique and Drafts Critique Forums. Additionally, they are in charge of responding to queries and moderating behavior in the Writing Help Forums and reporting offenses to the Disciplinary Team. More specifically, the Forum Criticism Team's responsibilities are:

  • Responding to threads in the Ideas Critique forum:
    • Ensuring that all concept threads follow the required reading template.
    • Providing critique on threads where the author has reached out to request feedback.
    • Addressing misleading, vague, vehement, or otherwise problematic feedback.
  • Responding to threads in the Draft Critique forum:
    • Ensuring that sandbox links are used, and full draft text is not posted to the forums.
    • Ensuring that first-time authors provide evidence of greenlights upon seeking draft critique.
    • Attempting to ensure that no draft thread goes without critique.
    • Addressing problematic feedback as noted above.
  • Moderating the Writing Help forums:
    • Ensuring the forums are free of repeat threads and spam.
    • Responding to queries in the Questions Desk and Research and Resources forums.
    • Reporting offenses to the Disciplinary Team and site administration when appropriate.
  • Maintaining How To Write An SCP in conjunction with the Site Criticism Team.
  • Proposing changes to other existing guides or documentation as necessary, particularly the Criticism Policy.

This team is only responsible for unpublished articles. The team responsible for site critique is the Site Criticism Team, mentioned prior.
