  • 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 .

    If you cannot make it to the Mackinac Center event but are interested in getting a more complete picture of how new media mediums such as this are transforming politics and information, MTTM will be hosting the LIVE stream of the event here.  Alternately, The Blog Prof will have a concurrent stream running on his site.

    I was not able to make the JAVA applet work here or I would have on RightMichigan.com as well.

    Where's Snyder? Who knows. He isn't online.

    So our next governor, and dare I say Nerd-in-Chief, Rick Snyder is all but guaranteed victory -- there's just one problem: his new media operation stinks big time.

    Seriously. I know some of us here in the blogosphere supported other candidates in the GOP primary, but we're united behind the Snyder-Calley ticket and committed to reinventing Michigan.

    Whether it's here at RightMichigan or at many of the other fine conservative blogs, Snyder is M.I.A. To my knowledge, he's done no blogger -- or as I prefer citizen pontificator -- conference calls even though his communications director, Bill Nowling, is no stranger to the Michigan conservative blogosphere.

    Its officially 2009 which means Election Day 2010 is practically right around the corner.  This year in Michigan just about everything is up for grabs.  110 seats in the House, 38 seats in the Senate, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor, the Attorney General, the Secretary of State, two Supreme Court Justices and heaven knows what kinds of ballot initiatives will be before Michigan voters when they head to the polls this cycle.

    And with the new year, primary races begin to shape up and take form for many of those offices.  One race is way out ahead of the field... but this right here, this is a RightMichigan first.

    Senator Cameron Brown is making an official announcement to the state-at-large tomorrow but he reached out to your friendly neighborhood conservative blogging community before going to the same old gatekeepers.  Every cycle candidates make their announcements at giant rallies, at fundraisers, via press release... not this announcement.  That's right... you're reading it here FIRST!

    As we move through the year Right Michigan will be working hard to bring you profiles, updates and interviews with the men and women who will occupy all of our political discussions throughout the cycle and we're today is no different.  

    So without further ado, check out our interview with Senator Brown and his big announcement below the break!
