From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
The rest of Troop 9 are Paul's allies. They treat each other generally very well and with respect. There is little evidence of discord or even teasing or pranks within the group. They take their situation very seriously and behave as a team.
