  1. [2013-08-07 18:45:11] <Clef> all right, guys
  2. [2013-08-07 18:45:19] <Clef> this is no longer about arguing over Djoric's article
  3. [2013-08-07 18:45:19] <Nusquam> Able has to come back to life.
  4. [2013-08-07 18:45:27] <Clef> this is now about doing a rewrite of SCP-105.
  5. [2013-08-07 18:45:29] <Clef> Let's begin.
  6. [2013-08-07 18:45:39] <Clef> SCP-105 is to be kept in a two-room cell furnished with whatever SCP-105 requests as long as such requests do not violate any standard SCP procedure. Subject is allowed to freely wander the facility, but is not allowed within one hundred meters of another SCP object for security reasons. Once per week, SCP-105 is allowed to leave the facility for one hour. During this period SCP-105 is to be accompanied by two plain-clothes agents.
  7. [2013-08-07 18:45:54] <Dmatix> Gonna have to get a raincheck on that. It's DOTA 2 time.
  8. [2013-08-07 18:45:55] <Clef> This needs to be fixed. We don't let SCPs wander around alone any more. Suggestions?
  9. [2013-08-07 18:45:56] <Nusquam> I think there's a neat angle that's never considered in the article.
  10. [2013-08-07 18:45:56] <Jekeled> Dmatix: It's the line that seperates the cultural North and South. Sorry for the confusion :P
  11. [2013-08-07 18:46:05] <Nusquam> Angle is maybe not the right word.
  12. [2013-08-07 18:46:22] <Dmatix> Heh. About time you explain history to me for once, Jekeled.
  13. [2013-08-07 18:46:34] <Jekeled> :3c
  14. [2013-08-07 18:46:53] <Nusquam> But the article never considers that photographs show things as they were, not as they are. Just kind of glosses over that by saying she can remotely observe things through still images.
  15. [2013-08-07 18:46:54] <Clef> **Special Containment Procedures:** SCP-105 is to be housed in a standard two-room cell, but is allowed free movement on-site (with the normal restrictions and caveats for
  16. [2013-08-07 18:46:55] <Clef> . . .
  17. [2013-08-07 18:46:57] <Clef> what?
  18. [2013-08-07 18:46:57] <Dmatix> How's that Semotrach tale going, by the way?
  19. [2013-08-07 18:47:01] |<-- Dexanote has left irc.synirc.net (Quit: brb3)
  20. [2013-08-07 18:47:01] <Silber> Yeah, it's cultural, not legal
  21. [2013-08-07 18:47:02] <Jekeled> Dmatix: I like history too; I just don't have a major to prove it. Or the systematic knowledge :P
  22. [2013-08-07 18:47:11] <Jekeled> Dmatix: 1/3 done, procrastinating on the other 2/3
  23. [2013-08-07 18:47:24] <Clef> Nus: I did consider that, and I have an idea on how to handle that.
  24. [2013-08-07 18:47:33] <Dmatix> Know that feeling all too well. If you need anymore help with it, just let me know.
  25. [2013-08-07 18:47:41] -->| Dexanote (Mibbit@synIRC-C30AF329.home.cgocable.net) has joined #site67
  26. [2013-08-07 18:47:46] <Nusquam> Maybe she was really /supposed/ to be in that asylum?
  27. [2013-08-07 18:47:48] <Clef> Namely, it's not all photographs and all cameras. It's only this one girl and one particular polaroid camera.
  28. [2013-08-07 18:48:15] <Jekeled> kk, thanks
  29. [2013-08-07 18:48:18] <Nusquam> I mean, if you can only ever see things as they were, and interact with what remains the same, I can see a pathos developing related to fear of change.
  30. [2013-08-07 18:48:22] <Nusquam> Or inability to accept it.
  31. [2013-08-07 18:48:54] <Clef> Nus: too complicated.
  32. [2013-08-07 18:49:00] <Nusquam> I'm not suggesting she be batshit crazy.
  33. [2013-08-07 18:49:04] <Clef> Look
  34. [2013-08-07 18:49:17] <Clef> Let's start by paring off the parts that are obviously artifacts of being written back in the day
  35. [2013-08-07 18:49:21] <Clef> before we start changing the core concept
  36. [2013-08-07 18:49:40] <Clef> this is part of my problem when people start proposing sweeping changes for older articles: a lot of the time, the issues are less with the core concept and more with side issues
  37. [2013-08-07 18:49:48] <Clef> like the fact that Iris is allowed to freely reign across the site
  38. [2013-08-07 18:49:55] <Clef> That's not something we do nowadays and could trigger a downvote
  39. [2013-08-07 18:49:56] <Nusquam> That definitely has to go.
  40. [2013-08-07 18:49:59] <Clef> so how do we fix that?
  41. [2013-08-07 18:50:07] <thedeadlymoose> Heh. *I* did that in an article and got an Echo upvote.
  42. [2013-08-07 18:50:09] <thedeadlymoose> It's not impossible.
  43. [2013-08-07 18:50:12] <thedeadlymoose> BUT.
  44. [2013-08-07 18:50:13] <thedeadlymoose> We can just remove it.
  45. [2013-08-07 18:50:20] <Dmatix> Pssh. I have more.
  46. [2013-08-07 18:50:38] <Clef> What I have so far: SCP-105 is to be housed in a standard two-room cell, but is allowed free movement on-site, with the normal restrictions and caveats for a . . .
  47. [2013-08-07 18:50:39] <Clef> . . .
  48. [2013-08-07 18:50:47] <Clef> I'm looking for a good descriptor for what Iris is
  49. [2013-08-07 18:50:49] <Clef> humanoid SCP/
  50. [2013-08-07 18:50:51] <Clef> ?
  51. [2013-08-07 18:50:58] <Clef> But that's not a phrase we use in-universe.
  52. [2013-08-07 18:51:03] <Clef> Unusual Personnel?
  53. [2013-08-07 18:51:08] <Nusquam> She's not personnel.
  54. [2013-08-07 18:51:22] <Nusquam> And I thought we wanted to get rid of her being allowed free movement on site.
  55. [2013-08-07 18:51:27] <Clef> I'd like to keep the idea that she was formerly a member of Omega-7 before it was disbanded.
  56. [2013-08-07 18:51:35] <Nusquam> That's it's own can of worms.
  57. [2013-08-07 18:51:43] <Clef> It's still in canon.
  58. [2013-08-07 18:51:48] <thedeadlymoose> Let's attempt it.
  59. [2013-08-07 18:51:53] <thedeadlymoose> There's no reason it can't be cut eventually.
  60. [2013-08-07 18:51:56] <thedeadlymoose> if we can't make it work
  61. [2013-08-07 18:51:57] <Echo> Why would you let her move around the facilityu
  62. [2013-08-07 18:51:58] <Nusquam> I'd suggest setting that aside and coming back to it once you have a decent core.
  63. [2013-08-07 18:52:03] <Clef> The idea that the Foundation once had a MTF that was made up of humanoid SCPs
  64. [2013-08-07 18:52:07] <Clef> The core is already decent, Nusquam
  65. [2013-08-07 18:52:09] <Nusquam> Is retarded.
  66. [2013-08-07 18:52:15] <Nusquam> That's what the idea is.
  67. [2013-08-07 18:52:18] <Clef> I'm saying we need to trim the rough edges.
  68. [2013-08-07 18:52:20] <Echo> This is like, exactly what you did with Able
  69. [2013-08-07 18:52:27] <Clef> Echo: more or less, yes.
  70. [2013-08-07 18:52:30] <Echo> You kept the most ludicrous elements possible
  71. [2013-08-07 18:52:38] <Clef> And Able's now holding pretty steady.
  72. [2013-08-07 18:52:41] <thedeadlymoose> Yup.
  73. [2013-08-07 18:52:47] <Silber> "restrictions of discharged members of Mobile Task Force Omega-7"?
  74. [2013-08-07 18:52:47] <Silber> Two birds.
  75. [2013-08-07 18:52:53] <Echo> Well, yeah, but it's still written like...
  76. [2013-08-07 18:52:58] <Djoric> http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1465
  77. [2013-08-07 18:52:59] <Djoric> THERE
  78. [2013-08-07 18:53:01] <Echo> Well, like the people dealing with it have some form of brain damage
  79. [2013-08-07 18:53:05] <Djoric> DONE
  80. [2013-08-07 18:53:10] <thedeadlymoose> Nus, Echo, you two are pretty much always a minority opinion on how 'retarded' old stuff is, yet it can work for the majority of people.
  81. [2013-08-07 18:53:17] <Echo> And can't come up with functional, working ideas.
  82. [2013-08-07 18:53:17] <Silber> Like a 90s Image comic?
  83. [2013-08-07 18:53:30] <Nusquam> That doesn't mean we're wrong, Moose.
  84. [2013-08-07 18:53:32] <Clef> you know what?
  85. [2013-08-07 18:53:34] <Clef> Fuck it
  86. [2013-08-07 18:53:37] <Clef> I'm doing this solo
  87. [2013-08-07 18:53:41] <thedeadlymoose> Of course not, but we shouldn't get derailed on 'this is retarded'
  88. [2013-08-07 18:53:42] <Nusquam> Godspeed.
  89. [2013-08-07 18:53:43] <Clef> Shouldn't have bothered asking you guys for help on this.
  90. [2013-08-07 18:53:52] <thedeadlymoose> :/
  91. [2013-08-07 18:53:52] <Nusquam> No, you shouldn't.
  92. [2013-08-07 18:53:59] <Nusquam> You are god-king of the Foundation.
  93. [2013-08-07 18:54:14] <Nusquam> We should be grateful to be graced with your presence.
  94. [2013-08-07 18:54:16] <Roget> Clef I don't think that's a very good idea, just because yer frustrated
  95. [2013-08-07 18:54:19] <Djoric> Who can clearly do no wrong
  96. [2013-08-07 18:54:30] <Echo> I'm just saying, when you're writing this sort of thing, it comes off as the people in-universe as being monumentally incompetent
  97. [2013-08-07 18:54:32] <Clef> then if you don't feel like answering my fucking questions, please don't interject.
  98. [2013-08-07 18:54:38] <Clef> Echo: I understand that entirely.
  99. [2013-08-07 18:54:46] <Echo> That's all I'm getting at.
  100. [2013-08-07 18:54:51] <Jekeled> Djoric: upvoted
  101. [2013-08-07 18:54:56] <Djoric> woop woop
  102. [2013-08-07 18:55:04] <Clef> On the other hand, I'm not here to fix the big issues with the articles as a whole.
  103. [2013-08-07 18:55:19] <Echo> Why not fix them, though
  104. [2013-08-07 18:55:22] <Clef> I'm here to trim the rough edges.
  105. [2013-08-07 18:55:28] <Silber> Isn't that the point of rewriting it?
  106. [2013-08-07 18:55:32] <Clef> Because, like I said. . . people seem to like the stupid.
  107. [2013-08-07 18:55:51] <Clef> I personally think that Superman is kinda dumb, but it still pissed me off when Man of Steel got him so monumentally wrong.
  108. [2013-08-07 18:55:56] <thedeadlymoose> You can keep stupid concepts and make them work within an article.
  109. [2013-08-07 18:55:57] <Echo> That's probably why it's so low-rated at the moment
  110. [2013-08-07 18:56:11] <thedeadlymoose> Omega-7 is a stupid concept. But 076 makes it work. There's no reason 105 can't too.
  111. [2013-08-07 18:56:18] <Echo> They loved it so much they downvoted it in an apoplectic fit of attempting to upvite it
  112. [2013-08-07 18:56:19] <Clef> Echo: Like I said. . . the problem isn't in the core.
  113. [2013-08-07 18:56:27] <Nusquam> Right.
  114. [2013-08-07 18:56:29] <Nusquam> It's not.
  115. [2013-08-07 18:56:30] <Clef> The problem is in all of the seriously sillier elements surrounding it.
  116. [2013-08-07 18:56:35] <Nusquam> Right.
  117. [2013-08-07 18:56:47] <Nusquam> So why keep the sillier elements like the O-7 membership.
  118. [2013-08-07 18:56:49] <Silber> Maybe the article was popular in spite of the stupid.
  119. [2013-08-07 18:57:06] <Clef> Because. . . SCP-076 still included O7 membership. ,. . and it's now rated in the mid hundreds.
  120. [2013-08-07 18:57:15] <Clef> So Omega 7 isn't the problem
  121. [2013-08-07 18:57:18] <thedeadlymoose> I like the O-7 membership, and I like O-7, so I'm going to continue as if it's going to stay in, personally speaking
  122. [2013-08-07 18:57:27] <Silber> Moose said earlier that we can't assume why people downvote; I assume that also applies for upvotes.
  123. [2013-08-07 18:57:29] <Clef> The problem is in the elements like giving her free reign over the site.
  124. [2013-08-07 18:57:33] <thedeadlymoose> We're on the free-roaming privileges, correct?
  125. [2013-08-07 18:57:36] <Clef> So yes
  126. [2013-08-07 18:57:42] <Clef> we are currently on free roaming privileges.
  127. [2013-08-07 18:57:50] <Clef> And I'm looking for the proper way to phrase this.
  128. [2013-08-07 18:57:52] <Dmatix> Clef: But in a way, isn't the core of the new 76 is the idea that O-7 was a huge, huge mistake?
  129. [2013-08-07 18:57:58] <Clef> Dmatix: yes
  130. [2013-08-07 18:58:05] <Clef> and the idea is that Iris was part of that huge mistake
  131. [2013-08-07 18:58:10] <Dmatix> And considering that, shouldn't 105 be treated a bit more harshly?
  132. [2013-08-07 18:58:14] <Clef> It's part of her PAST, not her present.
  133. [2013-08-07 18:58:17] <Wogglebug> Looking at it in-universe, for what reasons might the SCP be given free-roam privileges?
  134. [2013-08-07 18:58:18] <Dmatix> As in, no free roaming.
  135. [2013-08-07 18:58:21] <Clef> But the mistake was with other people, not with her.
  136. [2013-08-07 18:58:25] <Echo> Nothing, really
  137. [2013-08-07 18:58:28] <Clef> Here is my angle on Iris.
  138. [2013-08-07 18:58:34] <Clef> Omega 7 existed
  139. [2013-08-07 18:58:35] <Echo> Because there's no way to guarantee something's security
  140. [2013-08-07 18:58:38] <Clef> Iris and Able were members.
  141. [2013-08-07 18:58:42] <thedeadlymoose> Here's a draft.
  142. [2013-08-07 18:58:44] <thedeadlymoose> SCP-105 is implanted with a tracking device and is currently allowed Class 3 (restricted) free-roaming and socialization privileges with approved site personnel, granted based on continued good behavior and cooperation with Foundation personnel.
  143. [2013-08-07 18:58:47] <Echo> Or the ability to quickly relocate them in an emergency
  144. [2013-08-07 18:58:50] <Clef> Able, however, went ape. Omega 7 was disbanded.
  145. [2013-08-07 18:58:54] <thedeadlymoose> I stole the wording from one of my own articles, so feel free to change it.
  146. [2013-08-07 18:58:56] <Clef> Iris, however, didn't do anything wrong.
  147. [2013-08-07 18:59:18] <Dexanote> hrm.
  148. [2013-08-07 18:59:19] <Clef> So here is a person who could be an X-Man, but can't be because policy doesn't allow it.

  150. [2013-08-07 18:59:20] <Dmatix> I'm just trying to think like an O5. I wouldn't want any part of that huge failure just around like that. I'd make my best to hide it.
  151. [2013-08-07 18:59:20] <thedeadlymoose> Maybe cut "free-roaming and"

  155. [2013-08-07 18:59:40] <thedeadlymoose> Eh, I could see some of the O5s wanting to force mistakes to continue to be public.
  156. [2013-08-07 18:59:45] <thedeadlymoose> Hell, we see this dynamic with our own site. :P
  157. [2013-08-07 18:59:48] <Dexanote> Keep going, clef.
  158. [2013-08-07 19:00:11] <Silber> Heh
  159. [2013-08-07 19:00:52] <Dmatix> So use that, I say. Make O5 in-fighting a major focus.

  163. [2013-08-07 19:01:29] <Clef> At no point are SCP-105 and SCP-105-B to be allowed to come into contact, without approval of a majority vote of the O5-council.
  164. [2013-08-07 19:01:39] <Dmatix> Poor woman getting harassed between almost free-roaming and sitting in a dungeon.
  165. [2013-08-07 19:02:18] <Dexanote> I like that, Clef. Gives a reasonable number of caveats for a technically mundane SCP.
  166. [2013-08-07 19:02:50] <thedeadlymoose> [17:00] Dmatix So use that, I say. Make O5 in-fighting a major focus. > I am more than okay with this, but it needs to be differentiated from 076, which does something similar
  167. [2013-08-07 19:03:00] <thedeadlymoose> Interesting

  178. [2013-08-07 19:03:49] <Dmatix> You can easily do that. 76 is very dangerous, 105 isn't. Her containment procedures can be directly and rapidly affected by the O5 currently in favor.

Subject has blond hair and blue eyes, and at the time of the article, is 1.54 meters in height and 50kg in weight. Subject does not appear to have any out-of-the-ordinary physical characteristics and appears to be, for all intents a
  201. [2013-08-07 19:05:44] <Dmatix> thedeadlymoose: think of the physiological effects on Iris. She keeps getting moved from site to site, from containment to containment on the whims of the O5. There's no security, no stability.

  204. [2013-08-07 19:07:10] <Silber> She can't settle into a containment cell long enough to make any friends there.

  207. [2013-08-07 19:08:29] <Dmatix> You joke, but there's a truth in that. If she's allowed some freedom in one site, but she's all locked up in another, that'll get to you.

  350. [2013-08-07 19:28:07] <FlameShirt> Just saying, a guy just posted something that he said was a work in progress to the main site. So, there's that. Something to keep an eye on maybe. http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1827
  351. [2013-08-07 19:28:41] <Dmatix> Well, better than most of those already, as I didn't go blind.
  352. [2013-08-07 19:29:13] <Clef> SCP-105 was brought to the Foundation's attention shortly after the murder of her boyfriend when she was sixteen years old. Subject originally claimed to have been on the phone with the victim at the time of his murder, prompting her to hurry to his side: however, telephone records did not correspond to her story, making her a prime suspect in the murder.
  353. [2013-08-07 19:29:15] <FlameShirt> It has some kinda neat pictures.
  354. [2013-08-07 19:30:29] <Clef> Subject then informed her lawyer that she had, in fact, witnessed the murder through a photograph she had taken with her boyfriend several days prior: the attorney in question disregarded the story and recommended that the subject plead guilty. Subject refused to do so and was subsequently found guilty of first degree murder and sentenced to death.
  355. [2013-08-07 19:31:51] <Clef> Subject was originally recruited from death row as part of the D-Class Acquisition program, but was transferred to Special Containment Procedures pending confirmation of her abilities. Foundation Personnel retrieved SCP-105-B from her home (replacing it with an identical model), and returned it to her. Further testing confirmed subject's unusual abilities, and she was moved to Site-17, designated SCP-105.

  378. [2013-08-07 19:34:35] <thedeadlymoose> Also: Does she have to be 16? 18 almost makes it feel like more of a risk that she'd be in serious deep shit (people are less inclined to think that a 16 year old girl would kill someone as opposed to a legal adult). But this isn't a mandatory change
  379. [2013-08-07 19:34:35] <Djoric> The dictionary definition of rewrite is as follows

  387. [2013-08-07 19:35:35] <Dmatix> Yeah. Getting to death row takes years, even at 18 she would never be there.
  388. [2013-08-07 19:35:36] <Wogglebug> Clef, don't encourage it :P
  389. [2013-08-07 19:35:53] <Clef> all right, then.
  390. [2013-08-07 19:35:56] <Dmatix> Especially if she was a minor.
  391. [2013-08-07 19:36:02] <Clef> Let's just remove her age at the time of acquisition, then.,

  516. [2013-08-07 20:05:44] <thedeadlymoose> actually, it was a subject/verb agreement, fix'd
  517. [2013-08-07 20:08:57] <thedeadlymoose> ugh calling her 'it' doesn't work while also calling 105-B 'it'. I'll leave it as 'her' and 'she' for now unless I think of a solution
  518. [2013-08-07 20:10:24] <thedeadlymoose> okay updated with proofreading
  519. [2013-08-07 20:10:32] <thedeadlymoose> Woggle or another better editor should also take a look
  520. [2013-08-07 20:10:39] <Wogglebug> Hmm?
  521. [2013-08-07 20:10:43] <thedeadlymoose> Clef, more critique, though: The death row thing isn't even remotely believable
  522. [2013-08-07 20:10:56] <Wogglebug> Maybe Iris is like eighty.
  523. [2013-08-07 20:11:08] <thedeadlymoose> Nope, because
  524. [2013-08-07 20:11:16] <thedeadlymoose> "SCP-105 was brought to the Foundation's attention shortly after the murder of her boyfriend. "
  525. [2013-08-07 20:11:18] <thedeadlymoose> Shortly, eh?
  526. [2013-08-07 20:11:22] <thedeadlymoose> Yet... on death row?
  527. [2013-08-07 20:11:41] <thedeadlymoose> And even without 'shortly'... again, yeah, she should be /really/ old
  528. [2013-08-07 20:11:44] <Wogglebug> Maybe she lived in, like, 1970s Russia.
  529. [2013-08-07 20:11:50] <Wogglebug> And it's just outdated.
  530. [2013-08-07 20:12:15] <Roget> not Russia. Czechslovakia!
  531. [2013-08-07 20:12:17] <thedeadlymoose> And honestly, that she got all the way to death row stretches belief. Why wouldn't they try and insanity defense if it was THAT bad? Hell, base it on her supposed powers with photographs
  532. [2013-08-07 20:12:23] <Wogglebug> (Turns out she's not a hipster, just happened to own a camera)
  533. [2013-08-07 20:12:32] <Clef> moose: she'd have to agree to the defense.
  534. [2013-08-07 20:12:41] <Wogglebug> Who /wouldn't/
  535. [2013-08-07 20:12:42] <Clef> And she knows she's not crazy or a murderer.
  536. [2013-08-07 20:13:02] <Clef> My intent was to show a bit of stubbornness.
  537. [2013-08-07 20:13:07] <Wogglebug> She should be able to figure whether an asylum or death via bears is better
  538. [2013-08-07 20:13:15] * Wogglebug is still running with the Soviet thing
  539. [2013-08-07 20:13:25] * Wogglebug doesn't understand Russia
  540. [2013-08-07 20:14:00] <thedeadlymoose> Are you... sure that you have to agree to the insanity defense?
  541. [2013-08-07 20:14:09] <thedeadlymoose> That... doesn't make a ton of sense. But if you know better, than disregard
  542. [2013-08-07 20:14:13] <thedeadlymoose> I am no expert here
  543. [2013-08-07 20:14:31] * Wogglebug heads over to the googlemobile
  544. [2013-08-07 20:14:33] <thedeadlymoose> I do, however, know that it stretches the imagination to the breaking point to put her on death row.
  545. [2013-08-07 20:14:40] <thedeadlymoose> Prison for life, sure
  546. [2013-08-07 20:14:56] <Nusquam> If the psychological state of the defendant is in question, I'm fairly sure a court can appoint a psychologist to examine them to determine if they're fit to stand trial.
  547. [2013-08-07 20:15:03] <Heiden> if you’re found competent to participate in your own defense, then yeah, your lawyers would have to have you on board with your own defense
  548. [2013-08-07 20:15:08] <thedeadlymoose> Here's what it takes to get a woman on death row

  552. [2013-08-07 20:16:29] <thedeadlymoose> Note that she's black, and there were accomplices, and clear premeditation, and everyone knows who she is in the areas in question. Poor candidate for recruitment.
  553. [2013-08-07 20:17:09] <thedeadlymoose> Even if you made her non-white, it still wouldn't be believable for that reason
  554. [2013-08-07 20:17:37] <thedeadlymoose> I mean, it /could/ be made believable, I'm sure, but it's just... in there
  555. [2013-08-07 20:17:54] <Wogglebug> Also, she stabbed a bible school lady.
  556. [2013-08-07 20:17:55] <thedeadlymoose> Foundation scientists would be able to look her up in a newspaper with ease because she's so out of the ordinary
  557. [2013-08-07 20:18:01] <Wogglebug> An old lady.
  558. [2013-08-07 20:18:02] <thedeadlymoose> Yeah, I was gonna say that too, Woggle
  559. [2013-08-07 20:18:12] <thedeadlymoose> This was an apparent murder of a boyfriend
  560. [2013-08-07 20:19:08] <thedeadlymoose> This is partly just a holdover from the D-Class Always Come From Death Row bullshit that no one acknowledges as real anymore.

  566. [2013-08-07 20:23:51] <Wogglebug> Hey guys, is it currently against the rules to downvote because you want something -ARC'd?
  567. [2013-08-07 20:25:43] <Silber> Isn't downvoting for any reason other than.article quality against the rules?
  568. [2013-08-07 20:26:10] <Wogglebug> I would think so, but I'm not sure whether it would be interpreted, perceived, or enforced as such.
  569. [2013-08-07 20:27:04] <Silber> Well, malicious downvoting is very hard to enforce.
  570. [2013-08-07 20:27:32] <Silber> Because usually you can't tell why someone voted.
  571. [2013-08-07 20:27:39] <Nusquam> A vote is a reflection of opinion about the contents of the article.
  572. [2013-08-07 20:28:01] <Wogglebug> Hmm. There's images in this forum thing. Not sure if that's an issue or not. http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/forum/t-680212/idea-for-a-new-group-of-interest
  573. [2013-08-07 20:29:19] <Scantron> I'll edit them into collapsibles.
  574. [2013-08-07 20:29:37] <Wogglebug> Mkay
  575. [2013-08-07 20:30:05] <Nusquam> If someone said they voted because they wanted something -ARCed, an argument could be made that they're expressing an opinion about the article.
  576. [2013-08-07 20:30:07] <murphy_slaw> Wogglebug: is there a specific article in question with regard to ... malicious -ARCing?
  577. [2013-08-07 20:30:13] <Wogglebug> Oh, yeah.
  578. [2013-08-07 20:30:14] <Nusquam> That they don't like it and want it gone.
  579. [2013-08-07 20:30:30] <Nusquam> Or some permutation of that.
  580. [2013-08-07 20:30:40] <murphy_slaw> yeah, a downvote means "i don't think this should be on the mainlist"
  581. [2013-08-07 20:30:41] <Wogglebug> http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/forum/t-76679/scp-105#post-1823978
  582. [2013-08-07 20:30:47] <Nusquam> So while a pretty useless comment to make, I don't think it's technically against the rules.
  583. [2013-08-07 20:31:03] <murphy_slaw> what happens to it after it's off the mainlist is up to staff for the most part so...

  586. [2013-08-07 20:31:40] <Silber> Nusquam, what if your opinion on the article is that it's bad because its content was written by someone you don't like?
  587. [2013-08-07 20:31:50] <Wogglebug> lol
  588. [2013-08-07 20:31:58] <Nusquam> Then your opinion isn't actually about the content, is it?
  589. [2013-08-07 20:32:16] <Wogglebug> Nusq: They said they switched from up to down just for it to be ARC'd sooner.
  590. [2013-08-07 20:32:48] <murphy_slaw> wait, no
  591. [2013-08-07 20:32:54] <murphy_slaw> those are two different comments
  592. [2013-08-07 20:33:05] <Wogglebug> Huh?
  593. [2013-08-07 20:33:15] <murphy_slaw> grittz said they changed their vote from up to down so it would get rewritten
  594. [2013-08-07 20:33:26] <Wogglebug> Oh, yeah, woops.
  595. [2013-08-07 20:33:33] <Wogglebug> But it's the same idea.
  596. [2013-08-07 20:33:34] <murphy_slaw> drsevere replied and said he'd rather have it ARCed than rewritten

  616. [2013-08-07 20:43:29] <Clef> it dropped to negatives then went back to +1
  617. [2013-08-07 20:43:31] <Clef> I did a rewrite
  618. [2013-08-07 20:43:33] <Clef> I want feedback
  619. [2013-08-07 20:43:48] <Dr_Kens> Ah, copy.
  620. [2013-08-07 20:46:10] <PeppersGhost> I'm not done reading it yet, but you jump between "it" and "her" in a couple of places and there are a few unnecessary commas.
  621. [2013-08-07 20:46:47] <FlameShirt> Team Iris is a super silly name. :P
  622. [2013-08-07 20:47:48] <thedeadlymoose> it doesn't bother me

  624. [2013-08-07 20:47:53] <thedeadlymoose> That is either
  625. [2013-08-07 20:47:56] <thedeadlymoose> (A) my fault
  626. [2013-08-07 20:48:03] <thedeadlymoose> or (B) referring to 105-B, the camera, an 'it'
  627. [2013-08-07 20:48:20] <thedeadlymoose> there was one use of it that appeared to be referring to 105 & 105-B, I left it in there
  628. [2013-08-07 20:48:48] <thedeadlymoose> specifically, I changed everything to 'it' from 'her' then changed it back on realizing that Acquisition was unreadable.
  629. [2013-08-07 20:49:05] <thedeadlymoose> (because both 105 & 105-B are referred to as 'it')
  630. [2013-08-07 20:50:05] <thedeadlymoose> Also, Clef, some positives I didn't mention. I like that you blackboxed Dantessen's name. I like that 105 had her own sub-task force, never made sense to pair her with Able
  631. [2013-08-07 20:50:30] <thedeadlymoose> And I like it overall
  632. [2013-08-07 20:50:55] <thedeadlymoose> I also like the rethought escape attempt
  633. [2013-08-07 20:52:01] <PeppersGhost> Okay, finished it. I think it was very tastefully done.
  634. [2013-08-07 20:52:24] <PeppersGhost> This was the problematic bit:
  635. [2013-08-07 20:52:25] <PeppersGhost> "SCP-105 claimed to have been on the phone with the victim at the time of his murder, prompting her to hurry to his side: however, telephone records did not correspond to her story, making it a prime suspect in the murder"
  636. [2013-08-07 20:52:41] <PeppersGhost> should be "making her a prime suspect"
  637. [2013-08-07 20:53:15] <PeppersGhost> I'd be glad to edit it myself as long as everyone else is done poking it for the time being
  638. [2013-08-07 20:54:36] <thedeadlymoose> do it
  639. [2013-08-07 20:54:40] <thedeadlymoose> that one was my fault

  643. [2013-08-07 20:55:04] <Clef> heh
  644. [2013-08-07 20:55:35] <thedeadlymoose> Still hate the death row thing, but obviously it didn't kill the previous version for me so it's not going to kill this one
