Instructions for First-Time Visitors

Please read through these instructions.  You'll find important information here that will maximize your experience using our site.

 

 

On this page you will find the following:

 

 


1.  THE PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE

This site was initially created to preserve a 21st century database of classmate contact information, replacing the set of 3 x 5" hand-written index cards from 1977 when we were planning our first reunion.  The 2017 reunion committee used the website to announce and handle logistics for our 50-year celebration, and it has also served to connect and re-connect with our classmates (even those who choose not to attend reunions or get-togethers).  

Our goal is for the site to serve as a vehicle for communication among Badgers.  We would like to have contact information for every classmate.  If you have information about anyone who considers himself or herself a THS '67 Badger, listed on the site or not, please click Contact Us on the right side of the horizontal menu bar.  

Everything you need to know about gaining access to the rest of the website is on this page.  If you have questions, please Contact Us.

2.  PRIVACY NOTICE

All contact information (such as email address, mailing address, and phone numbers) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential.  The host of this 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 email address, street address, and phone numbers 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.  

Important:  If you do not opt for privacy on this line, your profile can be viewed by non-members such as your friends or family, and your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.

Finding your class website Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines:

  • If you are signed on to the site and have restricted your profile to only fellow classmates, and then you use a search engine to see if the privacy options above are working, it will appear they are NOT.  This is only because you are signed into the site.  Sign out and check again. You will see that none of your profile information is viewable by non-members.

Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each classmate's profile page.  (Just look under the classmate's main photo area 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.

Be sure you receive all class email news sent from us to you via this website:  For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add noreply@classcreator.net to your email account as a safe sender in order to ensure that you receive email communications from us.

If you do not want your name and photo on this site, they may be removed by contacting Melinda Manspeaker Curry.  (Click Contact Us.)  This will end all communications to you from the Tucson High School Class of 1967 unless you ask that special arrangements be made.   (Please note:  Classmate photos have not yet been automatically loaded onto our site.)

3.  SETTING UP YOUR LOGIN AND PROFILE

Join the Website!  It's easy.  It's free.  In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must log in by providing at least your email address and creating a password.  That's all; you have then successfully joined the site!   Typing information for the more detailed Profile page is optional.  You may share as much or as little as you like.  You can return to the site at any time to change, add, or delete information. 

How to Join:  Locate the "Classmate Profiles" link, locate your name, and click on it.  (If your name is not already on the site, but you were part of the Tucson High School Class of 1967, Contact Us so your name can be added.)  Follow the prompts to type in or edit your contact information.  (We entered as much data as we had on hand or could find in 2017.  Please correct any errors or changes.)  Then add as much or as little as you choose.

Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow classmates.  We collect this data so you can be informed of upcoming events.  This 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.  It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo and a "Then" photo.  Classmates will enjoy seeing how you've changed!

Updates:  If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone numbers, please update your Contact Info so we have current information. That way, you'll always be in the know about planned class happenings and what your classmates are up to!

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 Melinda Manspeaker Curry.  This might not be immediate, so please be patient.

4.  "MISSING" CLASSMATES

Class Creator originally set up our database, and then classmate names and data were entered.  This website assembles a missing list for us based solely on the names of each person who has no email address nor mailing address entered into the site.    

The Missing Classmates list is fluid; names go onto the list and come off of the list.  It all depends on whether or not a classmate's contact info is current.  

You may see a name on the Missing Classmates list and think, "I see So-and-So all the time at the grocery store.  He's not missing!"  Well, if there is no email address nor mailing address entered into this website for So-and-So, then he is considered Missing.  (Please make him aware of the fact that he's considered "missing" and direct him to our website.  Or Contact Us if you know his whereabouts.)  

Please note:  Our goal is to have contact information for every classmate.  If you have information about anyone who considers himself or herself a THS '67 Badger, listed on the site or not, please Contact Us.

5.  COMMUNICATING WITH CLASSMATES

 

To contact a fellow classmate, you may simple use the email option at the top left of each Classmate's Profile page.  The email link is located under the Master Photo area.  This email feature will allow open communication between classmates while protecting your personal information.  If you wish to share your email address or other personal information within a message written on our site, the site will not block you from doing so.

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!  :- )

Filling in the photo slots at the top of your Profile:

  • Click "Edit Profile" under MEMBER FUNCTIONS.
  • Roll your cursor over the Master Photo, Then, Now, or Yearbook photo silhouette.  (Note:  You cannot upload a yearbook photo if one has already been provided.)
  • Click "Select Photo" displayed in the upper right corner of photo, and then click the "Upload a New Photo" button.
  • Select the desired photo from your hard drive.  You will then be given the opportunity to crop the photo for a perfect fit.

Adding large "Profile Gallery Images" to your Profile:

  • Click "Edit Profile" under MEMBER FUNCTIONS.
  • Click the photo tab in the upper right corner of your Profile.
  • You will see any images previously uploaded here.  Click the "Upload a New Photo" button to add more.
  • Click to select images you wish to display on your Profile.  All images with a green check mark will display.  Click again to not display, and the green check mark will disappear.
  • To add a caption under your images, roll over any image and select "Edit Details."  Enter your caption and press Save.
  • You can adjust the display order of your photos by simply dragging and dropping them into the positions of your choosing.
