There's Still Hope For Everyone: An Open Letter to the Misguided

Wazzup Pilipinas!

This is becoming a regular headache of mine:

Asking myself what to do when I arrive at an event only to find out that there's a few people already there that signed up as Wazzup Pilipinas representatives.

As a gentle reminder to all those who want to represent Wazzup Pilipinas, please ask permission from me first. If you were not assigned to be there at an event, especially the events that I am an official media partner with, you should not declare yourself under Wazzup Pilipinas. This goes the same even if you are a member of the Wazzup Pilipinas community. We cannot afford to have everyone in the community showing up at an event claiming to be official representatives of Wazzup Pilipinas.

We are turning 1 year old this coming March 22, 2014, the same day we will be officially receiving another award as Best Filipino Community Blog Site, so I prefer to hear only good news before that big day. Too bad, I personally witnessed these appalling discoveries.

To all event organizers and PRs, I deeply apologize for this discovery. Some of you may have been expecting write-ups from us but never got it since there were never really any official Wazzup Pilipinas representatives that attended your events. To be on the safe side, please only directly communicate with me and do not reveal any of our arrangements with the people who will falsely represent Wazzup Pilipinas, especially with the ones who will deliberately ask for transportation expense reimbursements, complimentary tokens, special privileges, etc.

If ever I send representatives, it will only be limited to the number of slots you gave us. I will never send more than that. If in doubt, please contact me immediately so I could confirm.

Due to the heavy load that Wazzup Pilipinas is experiencing because of the numerous request for partnerships, PR postings, and event invites, I sometimes forget to notify the organizers or PRs that I will be sending representatives instead. This is the reason why we are calling out for volunteers correspondents. But this deception will hopefully rarely happen now that I know there are individuals that intentionally gatecrash using our name.

To the ones who falsely represent Wazzup Pilipinas, we can still work on this if only you will truly tell stories and take quality photos, and not just repost copy-pasted press releases and use low-resolution pictures. We only post press releases if we were never at the event, but if we were there personally, it's a lot better to personally tell the story using our own words and photos. Contribute articles that you can be truly proud of and flaunt to the world for being the original author.
