  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    ScoopHost.com is currently running Scoop version Undeterminable from .

    You are driving back home after a long business trip.

    You're looking forward to returning because you have plans to meet with family and friends, some you whom you haven't seen in a long time, when you get back early in the evening. You've made arrangements to meet everyone at a very popular local restaurant at several weeks ago and don't want to miss your reservation you put a lot of work into getting.

    This trip you've made several times before and are familiar with the route. It is a clear and sunny day. You're not speeding, driving erratically, or doing anything that would, in any way, draw any attention whatsoever to your vehicle.

    While you are still several hours away from your home, you see a sign on the side of the road:

    Checkpoint ahead. All vehicles MUST stop.

    You think to yourself; I must have just recently missed something very serious on the news for them to be stopping everyone.

    After waiting for what seems like hours in a long line of vehicles leading up to the checkpoint, you finally approach an officer. You ask them what happened. They simply respond by saying, "License, registration and proof of insurance, please." You pull it out of your wallet, hand it to them. The officer asks how long you were driving, where you are coming from, where you are going. After this, they take your papers with them and walk away. While this is happening, you notice a number of other officers are walking around your vehicle, looking in your windows at the contents on the back seat, scrutinizing your license plate, VIN plate and examining other areas around your vehicle.

    The officer returns and asks you to exit your vehicle.

    Anxiety begins to set in when you get out and they direct you away from your vehicle.

    When you are walking away, you notice the same officers around your vehicle begin to open the hood, doors and trunk and begin to do a more thorough search for something.

    What it is, you do not know.

    The officer you are with asks you several questions until they see the other officers around your vehicle motioning to come back to your vehicle. You are asked to remain where you are while they walk away. Not very far from where you are standing, you see them begin to converse among themselves, and flipping through clipboards while feverously writing things down.

     You start to ask yourself: Are they looking for me?
