How can I report suspected abuse of the event directory?
How is “What’s Up Corpus Christi?” different from a web site or search engine?
Other event directories are developed and managed by small paid staffs. WUCC was founded on the premise that event directories with small staffs cannot scale to the growth of the entire city and regional area, and still maintain a timely, current, and quality event calendar and resource directory.
WUCC is developed and managed by a constantly growing community of net-citizens who are experts in their areas of interest. Given this vast community of subject matter expertise and the global nature of the event directory, there is always someone working on the event calendar: processing submissions, resolving non-existent events, culling out the bad and keeping only quality information, and discovering new events and information to add.
Unlike small paid staffs, WUCC editors are community involved enthusiasts creating an event calendar and resource directory for other Corpus Christi residents and visitors alike. This kind of philanthropy and passion creates a diverse event calendar and extensive resource directory that is directly relevant to what people in Corpus Christi and the surrounding south Texas region are looking for. Ultimately, our goal is to demonstrate that “there is always something to do in Corpus”.
Who runs “What’s Up Corpus Christi?”
What’s Up Corpus Christi?” is hosted and administered by a committee of volunteers and the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce. It is operated by a very small committee responsible for editorial policies and direction, community management and development, and systems engineering. However, WUCC is first and foremost a self-regulating community of net-citizens that basically runs itself. Through a system of self-governance, the WUCC volunteer editors manage the directory's growth and development, and through a system of checks-and-balances, ensure the directory is of superior quality.
What’s up Corpus Christi is an Open Source inspired, volunteer-managed initiative. The United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce administers it and is committed to the keeping it a free and open resource via its social contract with the Web community.
