Frequently Asked Questions and Privacy Policies concerning the NEHI Class of 1983 Website
This is my first visit to the website. How do I login?

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 Northeast High School. Add your married name, if applicable, photos, etc.
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.
I 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.
Does this website cost me anything?

You can have a profile with pictures and videos
Send and receive email
Look at message forums, other classmates profiles and other cool stuff
The only money you will ever spend is if you make a donation to the administrator or if you purchase something related to the reunions!
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 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.
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 when they update their profile, it's that easy!
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.
How will I receive e-mails from the website?
E-mails to the entire class will be sent to you from: firstname.lastname@example.org so please add this e-mail address to your Address Book or your spam filter's Approved List. You can send e-mails to our website administrator, David Paine, by clicking on the "Contact Us" tab at the top of the page. I will reply as soon as possible.
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".
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.

Each photo is automatically resized to fit on your Profile page.

And yes, you can add, delete, or replace your own photos or videos at any time.
How does the "Message Forum" work?
The current message forum is a bit sloppy but it still works the ClassCreator.com folks are working on getting this upgraded and I will let you know when they do.
In the meantime, click on the "Message Forum" link and you can chat with our fellow classmates when they login and read the "Message Forum"
