  • 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

    There were perhaps 500, not 2000 as the FREEP would like to present.  As these things go, its pretty easy to see from their photo. A friend I traveled down with didn't think there were even that (500) many.  I felt 500 was about dead on, and the police officer who stood near us to [protect] us from the encroaching types, seemed to think that was the number as well as some of the union supporters passing by.

    Interesting time however.  About 18-20 of tea partiers vs 500.  All I had to do was chant "SUPPORT WORKERS RIGHTS!" holding up my sign to get a "YEAH" in response. "SUPPORT WORKERS RIGHTS!" "YEAH!!" "SUPPORT WORKERS RIGHTS!" "YEAH!!!!"  Then I held the sign out so they could see the bottom, and chanted "SUPPORT WORKERS RIGHTS!" and then "SUPPORT RIGHT TO WORK!"  "YE... umm what??"

    Oh you had to be there.. it was delicious.

    Then I finally was able to meet a young MTTM contributor, her siblings and her mom who showed up to counter protest.

    Are you counter-protesting more and enjoying it less?
