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

Talk To Action Announcements
By Bruce Wilson , Section New Scoop Sites []
Posted on Tue Dec 06, 2005 at 12:00:00 PM PST
The birth of Talk To Action: I was helping to set up ePluribus Media (another scoop site), but sometimes people who start things aren't always best suited to run them or bring them to full fruition. Not in that case anyway. So I left, but I'd met Frederick Clarkson in the project, and Fred was going down to NYC to the CUNY Open Center for the world's first conference, a two day event, focusing solely on the "real agenda" of Dominionism and the Christian Right movement. "Fred," I ventured, "you know most of the hardest core of the hardcore researchers into the religious right, and the writers, on so on. You'll be there anyway. Ask them to all post in one place on the net. I'll deal with the software...oh, sure".......

We have converted our site, over to scoop from geeklog. It was surprisingly easy to convert over and was able to copy the stories over with no problems. There were only four issues that came up during the installation of scoop and all are relatively minor.

The Oil Drum has moved to Scoop Announcements
By Super G , Section New Scoop Sites []
Posted on Sat Aug 20, 2005 at 12:00:00 PM PST
The Oil Drum is a community that discusses myriad ideas related to Hubbert's Peak/Peak Oil, sustainable development and growth, etc., and the many implications of these ideas on politics, economics, and our daily lives.

We started up in March on Blogger and built up quite a readership there. We moved to Scoop because we wanted to further the sense of community among the site's readers.
