The ghost of Jesse Scharff’s future
Update: At last, Tuesday afternoon, it’s fixed. Rest, weary Corpsmen.
Update: 10 AM the next day, and still no decent main page. I can’t wonder why people wouldn’t trust the Corp with their club’s page.
Update: 4 hours after this post originally went up, Hoyapedia’s main page is still a mess.
Corp CEO Jesse Scharff sent out an email (after the jump) to a bunch of student groups today promoting the Corp’s latest venture, Hoyapedia, a sort of Wikipedia for Georgetown. Alas, Scharff ignored the first rule of a roll-out: make sure your website doesn’t look terrible. Right now it’s a mess of tags, so use this archived page to navigate.
The Corp seems focused on making Hoyapedia a home for student clubs, touting the site’s possibilities for recruitment and advertising. What they don’t tell you about is the honesty of their thrown-together entries. See Healthy Wisey’s:
So, like, the Wisey’s owner dude I guess thought it would be a good idea to open up another shop. Healthy Wisey’s is good because it delivers. But it is nowhere near as good as the original Wisemiller’s Deli.
