First Time Here?

Welcome Fellow Pates! Thanks for dropping in!
How to get a Password, make a Profile, oh, and enjoy this site:

  • HOW TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN: To get started, look to the left hand corner of the page and find 1) "Our Lives Since '79" and click on it. 2) Find your name on the list and click on it. 3) Go to "JOIN HERE", click on it and add your email and password so you can interact with your fellow classmates.
  • This website is maintained and hosted by a fellow Hoover Pate from 79 and is completely free to use. Now there will never be a reason to join other ‘PAID’ sites. Alumni can meet here from now on and plan all future activities. This is the place!
  • NEXT: Add your contact information and create your individual profile. You don't have to finish it all at once. You can come back whenever you have time to update your information or add more photos or content. Pay attention because sometime in the future there may be new questions added for you to fill out in your profile. 
  • IMPORTANT: You need to add the following email address to your "safelist" so that your spamblocker will allow emails from this address to be delivered:  postmaster@classcreator.net. If you don't, you may miss important email from our website that will go to your junk email folder. You might want to adjust your settings to "always display images" from Admin@Hoover79.com.
  • Personalize your profile with information such as what's kept you busy since you graduated from high school or since the last reunion (if you attended), and include school memories, photos, etc.
  • If you choose, Password Protect your personal profile to block the general public and search engines from accessing your profile detail. Its your choice.
  • PRIVACY: All contact information that you enter into this website will be kept confidential.  It will not be shared or distributed.  Your information is private, your address and home phone number can’t be seen by the classmates unless you grant permission on your profile.  When someone clicks on your name they will only see your yearbook picture (if available), your city, province/state and whatever personal information you choose to put into your profile.  The exception to this is, we give your name, address and e-mail address to the company the Class of 79 contracts to administrate our Class Reunion(s).


    ** If you send a message to someone through their profile they will see your email address so that they can respond.

  • Question: Is my contact information secure on our website?

    Answer: This information is not visible to anyone except yourself unless YOU choose to make it available, which can be done from your Edit Profile link. You can give family and friends your web page address and they can visit your web page, as can others who may come to the Home Page and click on your name on the Our Lives Since '79 page. If you prefer that your web page be visible only to classmates who are logged in, you should check mark the box on your Edit Profile page that says: Profile Visibility. Your email address cannot be made viewable through your Edit Profile page, but others may send you an email through the contact box at the bottom of your page.

  • 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 your email inbox. You can login from computers other than your home computer but you will need to enter your password.
  • YOU MAY OPT-OUT of the bulk emails from the class administrator (or from email updates from classmates who update their pages) at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe notice at the bottom of any email you receive. Do not ask the administrator to unsubscribe you (he can not). Unsubscribing is an individual classmate choice and function. If you visited a classmate page and requested updates any time that classmate posts new updates to their page, you have to unsubscribe from those individual emails if you wish for them to stop. Go to "Profile Subscriptions" to do this.
  • Always check back at the Home Page.  That is where the main information and announcements are made! PLEASE participate in the SURVEYS and POLLS too.  Once in awhile "SURVEYS" appear on the left side of your page in the "Page Links" section and new "POLLS" will appear on the right side of the Home Page.
  • If you have any questions please feel free to click on the “Contact Us” button.

Enjoy the website!
