    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.

    And Since We Brought It Up

    It seems there is an alternate plan already in the works.

    The message has been picked up by the Michigan Senate. Lawmakers have considered the conflicting sides to the availability of medications that contain substances used in the manufacture of illicit drugs, and have found a reasonable solution. The message to Representative Lori?  Thank you for the concern, but maybe we don't need to go so extreme.  From a press release:

    CHPA Lauds Senate Passage Of Electronic Tracking Stop Sale Solution Protects Consumer Access, Blocks Illegal PSE Sales

    Lansing, MI - The Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) today released the following statement in response to the Michigan Senate unanimously supporting SB 333, which provides the state with electronic technology to monitor and block sales of common cold and allergy medications containing pseudoephedrine if the purchaser exceeds the legal limit:

    "Today's vote in the Michigan Senate is a victory for law-abiding citizens who need rely on cold and allergy medicines containing pseudoephedrine, and a defeat for meth cooks who seek to illegally purchase these products to manufacture methamphetamine," said Elizabeth Funderburk, spokesperson for the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA).  "Electronic stop sale technology is working across the country and it will work in Michigan.  It is a common sense solution to the stop illegal sales and provides law enforcement the tools it needs, while preserving consumer access to safe and effective medicines."

    This legislation is more along the lines of the successful measures used elsewhere in a way that doesn't compromise the ability to purchase desired relief without taking out a loan on the dog.  In the first article on this series, I mentioned the better method adopted by 12 states already.  

    More information on this legislation is available here.
