  • 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

    Tag: TEA Party Protest Rally

    Update [2009-4-15 16:41:23 by Nick]:As promised...

    Update [2009-4-15 15:42:44 by Nick]:Michigan State Police are reporting that overhead shots indicate the crowd was between four and five THOUSAND people strong.

    Just got back from Lansing's Tax Day Tea Party.  Wowzah.  What an event and what a turn out.  We'll have to wait for the official estimates but as you can see from the images below, we're talking THOUSANDS.  Plural.

    Folks showed up from across the state in droves to tell the politicians in Lansing and Washington, DC that enough is enough. Enough taxes.  Enough spending.  Enough growth to the deficit and the national debt.

    There wasn't a candidate to hock.  There wasn't one specific piece of legislation to protest.  This wasn't about unrest with the electoral process. This was an event that brought together Michiganders of every Party and political persuasion to express their frustration with the tax and spend status quo.

    Hopefully you had a chance to attend the event yourself, watch it live via UStream or attend one closer to home.  Either way, take a gander at just a few of these pictures and you'll get a sense for the feel.

    And stay tuned.  Working on getting some video cut that'll let attendees tell you in their own words why they made the trek.
