Is there a way for the individual classmates to put their yearbook photo in the top right corner placement of their profile? It looks like only the administrators can do that. Would save me and the other administrator LOTS of work if the classmates could adjust their own profiles, and move their "then" photos to that space. Any workaround?

Sorry, but no. We actually did it that way in the beginning, and found two things right away:

1) Most Classmates don't have a way of doing it anyway (e.g. no scanner) so they simply don't.

2) Yearbook photos came out entirely inconsistent when left up to each individual Classmate.

As an Administrator feature, you have the ability to scan yearbok photos with the same scanner, same settings, make them all consistent, etc. Gives your entire Classmate Profiles area a more professional appearance as a result. From time to time we have to make some "executive decisions" on stuff like this. And our decision was to put the entire senior photo scan abilities squarely in the hands of Administrators only.

Hi Brad -

I uploaded my senior picture and it now shows up on my posts. I want to change this picture. I uploaded the one I want to use and marked it as my master photo, but my old class picture still shows up in my posts even though it is not in my profile (details). How do I fix this?

You actually need to go to our forums page and look for the "My Settings" link in the top bar above the forums. On that page you will see all of the photos that are available to select as your master photo for the forums.

Thank you. I have done this. But it doesn't seem to have worked.

You may need to REFRESH or RELOAD. We see a 'different you' now. Wink

Thanks. I closed down my browser and went back to the forum after resetting my picture, but it didn't appear to have worked, but a refresh did the trick.

Now, for the really good news!!!

To Brad and all of the ClassCreator Team:

Our 50th year Reunion was this past Saturday and it was the best we have ever had. All of our classmates told the committee over and over how great the dinner was and how terrific the website is. They said they would continue coming because there was always something new to see. Yes, finding things to put up is somewhat time consuming, but your site makes it so easy for us look soooo professional!!!! I know that the website had a lot to do with getting the attendance we did and we (the committee) want to thank you all again and again!
