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@ scoop.versionhost.com:/cvs/scoop login

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@ scoop.versionhost.com:/cvs/scoop 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

HELP... My scoop-based rudepeople site is in need of a serious makeover. I don't have the time, talent or inclination to learn everything I need to make it "sing". Therefore, if you want to participate in an overhaul of the site, please contact off-list at rudedude [a t] rudepeople.com and tell me what you can do.

TalkLeft Moves to Scoop Announcements
By TalkLeft , Section New Scoop Sites []
Posted on Sat Oct 21, 2006 at 12:00:00 PM PST
It took forty days and forty nights, but TalkLeft: The Politics of Crime is now a Scoop site.  

TalkLeft has provided liberal coverage of crime-related political news since 2002.  After four years on Movable Type, we switched to Scoop, to increase user interactivity and plan for future growth.

Scoophost did a great job maintaining the site's existing look while incorporating all the great Scoop features.

Now that it's done, we're very excited about the potential.

SciScoop Science Forum Announcements

Not exactly new, but an update. For those interested in science the SciScoop Science Forum has (almost) everything, including a Controversial Conjectures category, where members can post their most bizarre theories about life, the universe, and everything. Some of these even make it to the front page, much to the chagrin of those who vote and comment against them, but, hey, that's democracy. Last mention on kuro5hin announced 1000 members for sciscoop, we're fast approaching the 2000 mark and are adding new features as we go. Last time, I checked the site was getting about 150,000 visitors a month overall. If you've got a sci-tech bent, check out SciScoop. db

New Site: Ventura Disc Golf Announcements
By chiggins , Section New Scoop Sites []
Posted on Thu Jun 01, 2006 at 12:00:00 PM PST
Ventura Disc Golf is now running on Scoop, and we're looking forward to having the local disc golf community contribute news, events, tips, and reviews. There's still parts of the site that need polishing, but for the most part we couldn't be happier with how it's turning out.

And of course, this announcement wouldn't be complete without a big Thank You to everyone in the Scoop Development community for making this possible. Keep up the great work, folks.

New Business Site on Scoop Announcements
By RobM , Section New Scoop Sites []
Posted on Wed Mar 29, 2006 at 12:00:00 PM PST
We launched Jotzel recently, a site focusing on business news stories and blogs. I really like Scoop's functionality.

I have to say that I'm a little ticked off at all the press being given to Digg, the "democratic Slashdot." Scoop was originally written for that concept, and beat Digg to the punch by what, 5 years? Plus I like the fact that Scoop sites stop voting on articles once they are published, thus avoiding the "popularity breeds more popularity" effect of sites like Digg.
