During the chaotic reaction to the SCP wiki and our associated social media logo changes for Pride Month, a number of users began trolling our platforms in ways that required staff intervention. In the endeavor to remove toxicity, several of the users and staff members who run or moderate our social media platforms overstepped their authority in disciplining several accounts which were not actually trolling and had legitimate concerns or criticisms of the change.
We apologize for mistaking those accounts for trolls, and for overreaching with our moderation in the past few days and earlier. Staffing changes have occurred because of these mistakes, including the removal of disciplinary positions from users and staff deemed overreaching, and we are working on ensuring this will not happen again. We hope you can understand that, in the event of a large number of responses, people can make mistakes. We also hope you can appreciate that we are trying to make amends.
If you feel you have been unfairly banned please send us a note.
We would like to reaffirm our support of the LGBT community and state that, while not liking the flag is not an offense in itself, bigotry and homophobia will remain not tolerated on the wiki or our social media accounts. We intend to provide a welcoming and creatively permissive writing environment for everyone.
Finally, happy pride month, from the SCP wiki Internet Outreach team.
