New to the website?
Please read the text below as it will answer many of your questions on how to get a password, make a profile and how to use the website.
This website was created for the sole purpose of keeping our class updated on each other and upcoming events like reunions etc...and to foster a sense of connection between all of us no matter how many miles and years keep us apart! This site will improve over time and as more of YOU take an active part to sign up and give your input about the this site and on future events.
It is completely free. You will never be asked to pay to make a profile or to be able to access other alumni profiles.
You have the option of password protecting your personal profile which blocks the general public and search engines from accessing your profile details. Once you create a profile, you will also be able to see the profiles of your fellow classmates and interact with them.
All contact information that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. It will NOT be shared by 3rd parties or distributed for solicitation. Your contact information is private: your address and phone number can't be seen by the classmates unless you grant permission on your profile.
When someone clicks on your name, all they will see of your contact information is your city and state and whatever information about yourself you choose to put on your web page. Your email address is not viewable, though an email can be sent to you using the contact box at the bottom of your web page. However, if you send a message to someone through their profile, they will see your email address so that they can respond.
You will need to make your individual profile in order to access any password protected pages on the site. Start by clicking on the "Classmate Profiles" link. This will take you to a page with all your classmate names, including yours. Find your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile. The password that you enter during this process will be used as your login password. You can personalize your page with information such as what have you been up to since graduation in '70, school memories, your family, and photos.
If you click "Remember Me" when you log in, you will not need to log in next time you go to the site. Note there is a password retrieval feature to click on: "Forgot Password?" in case you need to log in sometime and can't remember your password; the password will be sent to you email inbox. You can login from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password.
If you cannot find your name on the "Classmate Profile" page, please contact us to have your name added.
How to upload pictures to your web page:
1. Be sure you are logged in on the home page. In the links on the left side under MEMBER FUNCTIONS, click on the link: Edit/Upload Photos.
2. The Photo page will appear and you’ll see a gray box titled: Upload New photo. Click on this box and you will be at the Add Photo page.
3. The Add Photo page gives basic instructions for uploading your photos. There are 3 places on this page to make entries.
Sort: The sort number controls the order in which photos display on your page. By default your pictures will appear in the order you entered them, so this isn’t important for your first picture. But later if you want picture #5 to appear as #1, you will have to change the sort numbers on your pictures. If you delete a picture, the sort numbers for the remaining pictures do not change (e.g., if you delete picture #2 out of 4 pictures, you will show pictures #1, 3, and 4.)
Caption: Caption is the description you write for your picture.
Browse: This is the most important one, for this is how you find the picture on your computer and get it to appear on your page.
4. Your first picture will automatically be Sort Number 1.
5. Now click the Browse button. A list of folders on your computer will show up. Locate the folder that holds your picture. For most classmates this will be the My Pictures folder located in the My Documents folder. When you have clicked through to your picture file, click the view button at the top to show icons as pictures. This makes it easier to find the specific picture you want to upload.
6. Select the picture you want to upload by clicking on it once, and then click Open at the bottom of the box.
7. Now you will be taken back to the Add Photo page and in the Upload Photo box you will see the path to your picture.
8. Enter the Caption for your picture in the box.
9. Click the SAVE CHANGES button.
Now go to your Profile page and look for your picture and caption.
If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update those in your profile so when we download a hard copy we will have your correct information.
Enjoy and have fun- this is YOUR website and will only be as good as you decide it will be, so spread the word!!
If you know how to contact anyone that has not filled out a profile please contact them and give them the website. We need to try to get as many as possible to sign up if we want our future events to be successful. If you know their email you can just enter it and an invitation to the site will be sent.
My hope is that you can all reconnect friendships, create new ones, enjoy fond memories of the past and create new memories for the future.
If you know of a school or class that would like to use Class Creator to create their website, refer them to the link below and our class will receive $50.00.
In order to ensure you receive important messages from our class web site, as well as messages sent directly to you from other Classmates, it's important you whitelist the email address firstname.lastname@example.org (that's a .net, not a .com).
What is whitelisting? Whitelisting simply means you are telling your email program to accept all emails coming from our class web site and our Classmates. The technique for whitelisting varies by email program, but generally you will see the term "Whitelist", "Safe List", or "Safe Sender's List". This is where you want to be sure you have added the email address email@example.com.
Class Creator, the system that helps us operate our class web site, uses the address firstname.lastname@example.org when sending out email messages. Be assured that all emails sent through our site are valid — you will not receive spam email. Whitelisting email@example.com is the single most important thing you can do to ensure you don't miss anything happening on our site or miss receiving emails from your fellow Classmates.
Stop and take a moment to whitelist firstname.lastname@example.org right now, and ensure you stay connected!
