Tech Hub Tag List

This page has a comprehensive list of tags available on the wiki. For help with actually deciding which tags to use, please refer to the tag guide.


Major Page Tags


This is a comprehensive list of "major" page tags, and how they should be used. All pages on the SCP Wiki should have one or more major tags, and describe the "type" of page it is. These generally don't refer to information on the content of the pages; rather, they refer to out-of-character characteristics of the pages.

Attribute Tags

This list is intended as a guide to attribute tags, or secondary tags on SCP articles. When choosing tags for an article, keep in mind that you want to keep the list as short as possible; the goal should be to choose tags that are already being used, rather than create a new one. If staff should determine that a new tag is necessary, they can always retroactively tag articles as necessary. If you would like to suggest a new tag, please do so in the discussion thread for this page.

The following tags are SCP Article attribute tags, and should only be used on SCP pages, not tales:
