Repair a Broken Gear -- Hey guys, I usually don't do these sorts of things, but there's been something rather important happening within the SCP community, and it is important, at least for me, to share this to as many people as I can. Recently, a man named Daniel Desmet, more commonly known as Dr. Gears throughout the entire SCP community, was diagnosed with cancer. For those of you who aren't too familiar with SCP, it is essentially one of the largest online creative writing communities and has inspired many sorts of medias, such as video games, short films, and stories. Their website, alongside over 4000 creatively written entries can be found on http://www.scp-wiki.net/. SCP entries are mostly based of fictional anomalous entities that are contained and locked up by a secret organization known as the SCP Foundation. There are many famous entries out there that have been beloved/feared by fans throughout the internet, even earning themselves their own games and short films. -- One of the community's earliest writers, Daniel Desmet, who took the alias of Dr. Gears was diagnosed with cancer. The entire SCP community owes this man for everything he's done for it. He was the man who wrote the feared and beloved entries SCP-682, SCP-106, SCP-914, a couple of large and incredibly important entries within the site. It's a bit of an understatement to say that he's done a lot for the website. He's inspired so many people with his work. He's created concepts that have been built up from the ground into something the community uses so, so often like the Groups of Interest; Serpent's Hand, Broken God, and Marshall, Carter, and Dark Ltd. Daniel Desmet is one of the most important writer within the SCP wiki. He practically helped create it. Without him, there wouldn't be any of the SCP video games we know. There wouldn't be an SCP Containment Breach, there wouldn't be an SCP: Secret Laboratory. There wouldn't be any YouTube channels dedicated towards the SCP universe. -- Now if you've had a conversation with me, or know me, you'd know that I'm a massive fan of SCP and even came to Imperial Gaming from an SCP community. Even many of the events I've ran on the server were, in some ways, inspired by SCP. So this is incredibly critical, for me, to spread the word about it. Three days ago, a gofundme page was created with a goal of 20,000 USD. In the course of those three days, it's managed to go up and beyond the 20,000 dollar mark. Now, 20,000 dollars is cutting short when it comes to something like this. I've done my share of things, so please, if you could, donate as well. -- https://www.gofundme.com/f/repair-a-broken-gear
