Important U Guiz: This is, obviously, fake. Most of the people involved have nothing to do with the application process, and those that are were joking. I'd make the note that "don't actually use this in the application process", but the people who actually have the authority to change the app process have the power to do what they want.
In November of 2013, an executive council of a bunch of random users and, like, maybe one administrator convened with no prior warning to suggest an applications quiz. Several months later, this document was mailed into the Wikidot Corporate offices, scrawled on the back of a Denny's children's menu.
Their remains were never found.
SCP WIKI PROPOSED ADMISSIONS QUIZ-Draft One
Thank you for deciding to apply to the SCP Foundation wiki. Before you can become a site member, however, we'd like to know a few things about you.
Why you want to join:
Name the times in which it is okay to creep on a fellow site member:
How many 'king's, 'lord's, 'dark's, 'chaos's, or 'xx's are in an ideal username?
Please list any physical and/or mental disorders that exculpate you from all responsibility regarding your own behavior, despite the fact that there are almost certainly well-behaved wiki members suffering from the same condition:
Please provide a brief outline of your planned tale regarding Procedure 110-Mountauk:
How cool is coldposting?
How many minutes should you wait before coldposting a draft?
Where is SCP?
How should we improve SCP-173?
What's the prize for responding to a Staff Post?
Are you aware of the proper procedure for blanking your coldpost and then flailing ineffectually when that does not actually cause it to be deleted?
Tell us why Slenderman has to be on the wiki:
Should a user tell you to stop interacting with them, how many minutes should you wait before continuing to talk to them?
How many minorities have you driven away from other online communities? Are you in the process of driving away one or more right now? Is it okay because you have black friends? Should white pride month be a thing?
Does this site need to be taken down a notch? Are we pathetic and are we taking things way too seriously?
Have you seen something in real life that you want to tell us, so that we might contain it?
Do you know we're not real? wink wink
Are you too rad to read the comments on your submitted articles?
How I SCP?
Self-upvoting: Yes or YES?
Are you aware that hosting off-site images on an article is an easy way to become very popular on both the wiki /and/ the image host?
Do you feel that feminism has run its course and now it's the guys' turn in the sun?
Please, tag the following dummy article. If a tag doesn't exist, just make one up!
Are you really rad at art, and are you going to include your drawings in your SCP?
How many off-site administrations are you involved in, and how does that qualify you to be promoted to staff immediately?
How many things do you have to change to turn your Sonic OC into your author avatar?
Do your parents and DeviantArt think your drafts are really good? How about your teacher?
Are there any articles that you feel would be improved by just randomly throwing a GOI in there?
Why do chicks dig jerks?
When is SCP?
What cross-tests involving 682, 914, and/or 076-2 should we write up? If the provided space is not sufficient, feel free to write an academic paper on the matter and mail it to the staff.
Have you already made a SCP video game/movie/book/play/novelty children's cereal and just need somebody to do all the code and design/scriptwriting, filming, location scouting, financing, casting, editing, and release/writing and publishing/casting, resource gathering, staging/flavor research and bribes to the FDA?
Free Response Section: Please choose one of the following prompts, and answer it in less than 600 words.
A. If you were to start your own wiki, how would it be better than ours, and how will it make the site administration sorry that they didn't see your genius?
B. Describe, in a well developed paragraph, your vision for the "Things Dr. Bright is Not Allowed to Do at the Foundation" page.
C. Please explain how political correctness is a liberal plot.
D. Proper Grammar and Spelling. Open-ended prompt.
E. Compare and contrast the Creative Commons License and any two of the following: 1984, the USSR under Stalin, North Korea, Obama's America.
