MUScoop.com turns 1

Happy Birthday to MUScoop.com!

A year ago today, two Marquette alums, rocky_warrior and spiral filled a void in the community by creating a new forum for MU chatter.

The Scoop is going strong, with over 34,000 posts, 823 members, and 2,100 daily visitors, monthly newsletters, hundreds of game-photos, many videos and huge wiki. All in 365 short days.

Not all websites make it through a year, especially with strong internet brethren like Scout. I think we've been surprised by its success.

On a personal note, I was fortunate to be invited to help moderate Scoop and write for Cracked Sidewalks, and the partnership between the two sites has been outstanding, with a tremendous amount of shared traffic.

Thank you MUScoop, and thank you CrackedSidewalkers!
