What is Scoop
Scoop is a "collaborative media application". It falls somewhere between a content management system, a web bulletin board system, and a weblog. Scoop is designed to enable your website to become a community. It empowers your visitors to be the producers of the site, contributing news and discussion, and making sure that the signal remains high. More >>

Where can I get Scoop
You can download the latest release tarball: scoop_1.1.8.tar.gz

You can grab the nightly build. Note: This is generated automatically from the current CVS, and may not be reliable! Get that here: scoop-1.1-nightly.tar.gz

The developers strongly recommend CVS as the primary way to obtain Scoop, since releases tend to have pretty long delays between them. If you have CVS installed, do the following:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@ login

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@ co scoop

The above is two commands; each one must be on a single line. When prompted for a password for anonymous, enter 'anonymous' (without the quotes). For more CVS info, "Open Source Development with CVS" is an excellent online reference.

Where can I get help
There are several sources of information and support for Scoop. The first place to look is the scoop-help mailing list. You can browse the archives, or join the list. If you want to post a question, joining the list is strongly recommended. You can also join the #scoop IRC channel on SlashNET.

For documentation, there is the (largely complete) Scoop administrator's guide. You can also read the current README and INSTALL files, from Scoop WebCVS (username and password are both "anonymous"). The admin guide is also included with Scoop, in the doc/ directory.

If you have new feature ideas or requests, or descriptions of something you're working on for Scoop, this site is the place to submit them. You can also search this site for information. If you want to get your hands dirty, or have any questions about developing for Scoop, there is also the Scoop-dev list. You can browse the archives, or join the list.

Bug reports and patches should be filed on the Scoop Bug Muncher.

If you have any problems with this site or your user account, e-mail the Admin

Time for a New Release? New Code
By Captain_Tenille , Section News []
Posted on Tue Nov 11, 2003 at 12:00:00 PM PST
I was looking through scoop.k5 today, and noticed that it's been over a year since Scoop 0.9 was released. I think most of us would agree there have been a lot of changes since then.

I think it's about time we made another release of Scoop.

Daily Kos is now on Scoop Announcements
By kos , Section News []
Posted on Sat Oct 18, 2003 at 12:00:00 PM PST
Daily Kos, one of the top progressive political sites on the web, is now a Scoop site.

It was previously on MT, but the partisan nature of the site attracted large numbers of trolls and flamers hijacking my message boards. And MT was having a hard time coping with my traffic levels (approaching 60,000 unique visitors per day, well over 100,000 daily page views). Therefore, a more robust solution was necessary.

So far, so good. A few niggling bugs remain, but it's otherwise been a great transition. Kudos to the Scoop team for a killer application.

20 icons for the boys Announcements

I'm happy to report that I can finally ADD a little something to the Scoop movement. I've heard a couple of requests for icons, so I traded services with an art-type and now I've got a set of 20 Topic icons, and I'm willing to share them with anyone free of charge.

The first Scoop translation (that I am aware of) is up, running and pretty stable! The portuguese site opened at the end of June and is set to discuss the general issues of life and news in Portugal. Here are some notes and the first balance of its short life.

Scoop moves! Announcements
By hurstdog , Section News []
Posted on Tue Jun 25, 2002 at 12:00:00 PM PST

We've officially moved over to Xlan, as of your reading this. coryking sent me an email talking about setting up a similar sponser thing as k5 has with, and I thought it was a good idea. Nothing major will change, just the ip, and you'll notice the little ad box on the right as well. That should be on most pages. Its well worth the free bandwidth and free colo, and I thank coryking for that :-)

Ads on this site. Announcements

Posted on Wed Apr 24, 2002 at 12:00:00 PM PST

Starting today, we will no longer accept ads for any sites other than scoop sites. All scoop sites get free ads here, 1000 to 10000 impressions at a time. Also all Scoop hosting companies will get free ads as well. Ads for any other type of site will be declined. Let me know what you think of the change below.

Scoop Lives! Announcements
By The Trinidad Kid , Section News []
Posted on Tue Apr 23, 2002 at 12:00:00 PM PST
I was on a wee trip up country to do my presentation about my site in Ullapool and I got some computer porn to read in the car. Opening one of the jazz mags, what do I find but an article (not available online ?yet?) about Building Community A Websites with LAMP including a mention of dear old Scoop... (LAMP is, I finally worked out, Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl - substitute [PHP|Ruby] for Perl and [Postgres|anything else] for MySQL to taste...)
