Here's a new one for me. Before I send a response of tolerance and inclusivity, I want to verify that there is not an option or switch to allow this capability, described below by a classmate:

"Is there a way to block someone from viewing my profile, information, etc? [Name of classmate] just joined our WHS site and I really do not want him in my business. He is my ex-daughter in laws brother and a real problem for our family."

Thanks!

Once they create a profile, anyone who signs in to your website can view it. She can mark it as private, so that nobody who is not a classmate can view it, but cannot exclude anyone from viewing it after it is created.

Is the brother one of your classmates? If not you can mark your profile only to be viewed by classmates and he shouldn't be able to see anything more than that you are a member of the class which is common knowledge.

Am I right about that Kyle?

Janie - That is correct. While we do not currently have a blocking feature, if the person you are worried about is not a member of your class, by using that setting they would be effectively blocked from viewing the profile.

There is another option. Just don't put any information on your profile. I know that's a "downer" for most classmates, but it is an option.Sad

I agree with Glenn Ellen. She could keep her profile information to a minimum and perhaps consider adding a note that says "Contact me for more information".

Another thought. I'd also tell her that if this individual makes any kind of harassing statements, you are willing to warn and delete him, if necessary.

wow! what a sticky situation.

The last time I added a classmate, I thought there was an option so someone doesn't show on the class list. I think this means the "secret" classmate or guest could look around the website, but they don't have a profile that someone could see and comment on. I think it also means the "secret" classmate can't comment on anyone else's profiles.

Does that sound right? Hoping a CC administrator can clarify that for me. Thanks!

As I understand, anyone can join your class, unless you have a screening process. All people have to do is look at the list of classmates, choose a name that hasn't been used and sign in as that person and establish an account.

While I've never had that happen, I think there is an option to delete the false classmate and re-enter their name to make a new profile.

Thanks Kyle for verifying that there is not a blocking function. I do not see a legitimate need for one, but wanted to be sure about it before responding to the classmate.

And thanks other repliers for your insights. Just to clarify, both of the parties involved are classmates.

We do have a publicly available 'Terms of Use' on the left hand menu bar of our web page, and I did remind the classmate that members can be removed from the site if the terms and conditions are violated. I removed one classmate a couple years ago.

Being the website administrator has made me aware of occasional squabbles and conflicts that I was never aware of in high school, and don't care to get involved in now.

We have a high participation rate on our website, even four years out from our reunion, so I guess I should expect some of this.

But I did have fun crafting the sensationalist title for this post, paraphrased from the classmate's question, with CAPS and exclamation marks - I wish I had come up with more headlines like that when I was working on our school paper, back in 70-71...
