According to our Statistics page, 31% of our KHS 1967 classmates are Active. Does that mean they have a Classmate Profile stored in the system, or that we have an email address for them stored in the system? Tip: You may want to define that Active term on the Statistics page.

On average, how does that 31% compare to most other classes in your system? We didn't start our website until after our last reunion in 2007, and now our next reunion won't be until 2012.

32% of the active classmates have added photos. How does that compare to other classes?

Other Administrators may be interested in seeing the same system-wide averages, so they can benchmark their websites against other classes. My guess would be that classes who just recently graduated or recently held a class reunion are more likely to have current email addresses and Profiles for their Classmates, but your analysis may show other trends that would be interesting.

I continue to receive very positive feedback from my Classmates about our website, so thanks for having this wonderful tool available!

That means they have an actual Profile stored in the system and are participating in your site. We updated the wording there to make it more clear, thanks for the suggestion.

Considering the amount of time you've been on the system, 31% is pretty good. You'll tend to get a rush of new members when you first open your site, and many additional Classmates will trickle in over time as they learn of your site. The best thing you can do to increase participation is remind Classmates to each out to other Classmates. Each Classmate knows where at least a handful of other Classmates are. And amongst the knowledge of your entire Class you'll find that virtually everybody can be located.

32% of active Classmates adding photos is probably a litte low compared to other Classes, although we don't currently track direct stats on that. We'll certainly be doing more with statics and reporting over time as the system grows.
