On this page you will find the following:
1. THE PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE
This site was created to connect and re-connect with our classmates (even those who will not be attending the reunions). Our next goal is to make this site a scrapbook of memories for all classmates and their families. Our site is private!
Everything you need to know about setting up a profile to gain access to the rest of our page is on this page. If you have questions, please contact the administrator, Tom Thomas.
2. PRIVACY NOTICE
All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. The host of this web site, ClassCreator.com, is a locally-owned business. They understand the importance of your privacy. Your personal information will never be sold to other sites. It will not be shared or distributed.
Your contact information is private; your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by classmates. Each classmate has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow classmates by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non members such as your friends or family, but also note your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.
Finding your class web site Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines:
Emails may be shared within this site using the "private message" option at the top of each classmate's profile page (just look under the classmate's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact classmates without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.
All class Email news sent from us to you via this web site: For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email account as a "safe sender" in order to whitelist our site to ensure you receive email communications from us.
Please note that if you do not want your name and picture on this site it may be removed by contacting Tom Thomas. This will end all communications to you from the Class of 1969 Reunion Website, unless you ask that special arrangements be made.
3. SETTING UP YOUR PROFILE
In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing a minimum of your email address and a password.
► To set up your profile: locate the Classmate Profiles link at the top of this page. Locate your name (your name when you were a student, not your married name) and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile.
Be sure to leave Married Last Name blank if it's the same as Last/Maiden Name (i.e., when you were a student), or your name will show up as John Doe Doe. Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow classmates. We collect mailing addresses in the event that we need to contact you by snail mail or phone. Your information will never be given to other classmates without your permission.
We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as a master photo. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. Classmates will enjoy seeing how you've changed!
If your name is not already on the site, contact us and your name will be added.
Updates: If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up to date information. That way you'll always be in the know about what your classmates are up to! Just click the little snowman symbol in the upper right corner of this page and then click on "Edit Contact Info."
Choosing a password: Passwords do not need to be the high security style recommended for some sites. Choose something simple that you are certain you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "remember me" will fail (for instance when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!
If you forget your password simply click on "forgot password". If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to set up your account, contact Tom Thomas. This could take a while so please be patient.
4. CLASSMATES WHO HAVEN'T JOINED THIS SITE YETg
The wonderful part about this site is that it came pre-setup by Class Creator. We just had to enter names. The site keeps track of people who don't have profiles, so until you've joined the website, you'll be on that list.
Also, please note: We need your help to contact EVERY classmate. If you have information about any classmate, listed or not listed, please contact the administrator, Tom Thomas.
5. COMMUNICATING WITH CLASSMATES
Go to a classmate’s Profile Page.
To email that person, you may simply click on "Send Classmate a private message" under their photo. Your own email address will not be revealed. However, if you wish to share it or other personal information within a message written on our site, the site will not block you from doing so.
You can also click the “Follow Classmate” box to the right of the classmate’s name so you’ll be notified when they update their profile. And the list of people you've followed (or "subscribed to") can be edited; see the “Sending and Receiving” note under Member Functions.
6. ADDING PICTURES TO YOUR PROFILE
Adding current pictures is not a requirement to participate on the site, but it certainly is a nice way to get to know people again. We've had reports of classmates who were routinely running into each other without knowing it, because...well....we've all changed a little over the years! :)
First click the little snowman symbol in the upper right corner of this page and click on "Edit Profile." Then:
