FAQ's - HELP

Welcome!
If you are new to this website, please read this entire page, as it should answer all of your questions on how to create your profile and password, update your personal information, and how to use this website.

This website is maintained and hosted by a fellow classmate and is completely FREE to all alumni who are listed as a classmate. You will never be asked to pay for creating your profile or accessing other alumni profiles. This website considers a "classmate" or “alumni” to be anyone who was a member of the Parkway West Senior Class of ‘82. 

If you see a YELLOW STAR by someone’s profile, it indicates the classmate has been on this website and updated his or her profile with current information.

Before you can update your personal information and access password protected pages, you must create your profile and password. Please click on Classmate Profiles, find your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile and password. The password you enter during this process will be used as your login password. If you cannot find your name on the Classmate Profiles page, please use the Contact Us button to have your name added.

Please "whitelist" the main site email address to your address book postmaster@classcreator.com  and adjust your spam settings to ensure you receive emails that keep you updated with the website and reunion details as they become available.

Once you create a profile, you will also be able to view profiles of your fellow classmates and begin interacting with them.  You also have the option to password protect your personal profile which blocks the general public and search engines from finding you.

Please add a photo to your profile so everyone can recall what each of us used to look like.


Once you have created your password and updated your profile, you may choose to keep your personal information private, such as your street address and phone number. Normally when other registered users click on your name, they will see your city and state, and any other contact information that you choose to put on your profile. However, even if you select to keep your profile private, if you send a message to a classmate through his or her profile, that classmate will obtain your email address.

Be sure to check back on the Home page to stay up to date with the latest updates and view new announcements as they are posted.? If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to click on the Contact Us button.?
Enjoy the website!

Frequently Asked Questions

1.  This is my first visit to the website.  How do I login?
Please click on "Classmate Profiles" (above, far left tab), then click on YOUR NAME to set up a FREE member account.  Provide your work or home e-mail address, select a password (which you can change at any time), and tell us about your life since graduation.  Add your married name, if applicable, photos, etc.

2.  I forgot my login information and/or password.  What should I do?
You login with the e-mail address you provided during your member account set up (include domain name, such as @aol.com).  If you have several e-mail addresses and cannot remember which one you used or if you no longer have access to that e-mail address, click on "Contact Us" and provide your new e-mail address.  Our website administrator will make the change and then e-mail you a temporary password.  Once you've logged in using your new e-mail address and temporary password, change your password by clicking the "Change Your Password" link under the Member Functions menu on the home page.

If you remember your e-mail address but you forgot your password, click on the "Forgot password?" link right above the green "Log On" button, and the website will automatically e-mail your password to you within a few minutes.
 
3.  Who has access to my "Classmate Profile" and personal contact information?
You can choose whether your "Classmate Profile" is publicly viewable on the website (e.g., by other classes, friends, and the general public) or restricted to registered Parkway East 79 Classmates only. If restricted, search engines and the general public will be blocked from accessing your Classmate Profile page.  You can also choose whether or not your mailing address and phone number are displayed; otherwise, only the City and State where you live will be listed.  Click on the "Edit Your Profile" link under the Member Functions menu in the side column, then scroll down to the bottom of the page to make your choice.
 
4.  Can I be notified if other Classmates update their "Classmate Profile"?
YES!  Click on "Classmate Profiles", then click on the name of the Classmate you'd like to keep track of.  Once he/she has registered, his/her profile will be displayed.  Scroll down to the bottom of his/her profile page, click on the box that says "Notify me whenever [Classmate's] profile is updated", and click on the "Notify Me" button.  You will be notified by e-mail.  
 
5.  Does the public or other Classmates have access to my e-mail address?
NO!  To protect your privacy, your work or home e-mail address is stored only within the website, so Classmates can send you a Message, but they have to enter a six-digit Security Code that prevents non-Classmates or "spammers" from sending you junk e-mail.  You can decide who you want to provide your own e-mail address to.  To check if you've received any new messages, click on the "Message Area" under the Member Functions menu in the side column.
 
6.  How will I receive e-mails from Classmates ?

7.  What are examples of the e-mails that I may be sent?
You will be e-mailed information about new website features; details about upcoming class reunions, fundraisers, or events; general announcements about classmates; and other important news.  In addition, a reminder e-mail will be sent to you on New Year's Day suggesting that the start of the new year is a good time to update your "Classmate Profile".
 
8.  Can I post my own photos or videos on the website?
Yes!  You can upload a current photo of yourself, your family, pets, vacations, old photos from days gone by, past reunions, etc. -- anything you want to share -- by clicking on "Edit/Upload Photos" under the Member Functions menu on the left.  There is no limit on the number of digital photos that you can store on your "Classmate Profile" page.  Each photo is automatically resized to fit on your Profile page.  You can also upload your own videos that you've posted to YouTube.com by clicking on the "Classmate Profiles" link, then following the instructions.  And yes, you can add, delete, or replace your own photos or videos at any time.

No!  Class Creator does not rent or sell any Classmate information or engage in any marketing or solicitation to Classmates.  All personal contact information is held strictly confidential.  Class Creator does not sell advertising on the website or display banner ads or pop-up windows.  Class Creator does sell domain name registrations to Classes through its ClassNames.net subsidiary, but using that service is optional.  Our website is owned by Parkway East class members --not by Class Creator.
