The reason you might see the number of registered alumni go down or the number of overall alumni listed on the site go down is because sometimes people will not register under their name that is already listed or they will register twice. Usually those that register twice either forget that their already registered or don't read the list of names that matched theirs when they tried to registered. It is for this reason that I will periodically audit the alumni database and remove any duplicate alumni entries.
To register, simply click 'Register here' on the left side of the screen. You will be asked to enter your first initial, last name and the year you graduated. Then the system will check to see if you're already listed in the database. If you are you will be presented with the matches. If you see your name simply click the 'Select' button next to your name and you will be given the complete form to fill out. If your name doesn't appear you will be given a link that says 'Click here to complete the new user registration form'.
You can change your email address on the site at any time. Simply login and click on your name shown in red at the top of the screen. This will take you to your profile page where you can edit all of your information using the links on the right side of the page.

First make sure that you have logged in. If your name does not appear at the top then click on the Quiverian logo to reload the home page. If you have logged in this will make sure that your name appears. If your name still doesn't show up then double check that you have cookies enabled in your browser.
The 'Remember Me' function will allow you to visit the site without having to log in each time. This requires the site to write a cookie to your browser that identifies you to the site so that you will be recognized without logging in. The only requirement for this to work is that you visit the site from the same computer each time otherwise you will need to log in.
There are several ways to find classmates. To find classmates that might be registered you can click on the 'New Alumni' link on the left to view a list of all registered alumni or you can select the graduating year from the left to view either the registered alumni or the entire class list for that class. Not all classes have everyone listed yet but we're trying to get all of the names.
Email privacy is an important issue and one I don't take lightly. When you register you can elect to keep your email address private. This will prevent anyone from viewing it. When you make it open to the public I've added another layer of security in that only those alumni who are registered AND logged in can view an email address on an alumni profile. I DO NOT and WILL NOT ever sell the email addresses (or any other personal info) from this site.
All information that you enter in your profile is open to the public with the following exceptions. If you choose to make your email address public it can still only be viewed by those registered alumni who are logged in at the time. Any information that is posted by you in the Dog Pound message board also can only be viewed by registered alumni.
Even though you make elect to keep your email address private it is still required to register. The primary reason for this requirement is to help me validate that the people signing up are who they say they are. Anyone can enter a fake email address but by requiring a legitimate one I can make sure that the site is being used the way I intended to and that no malcontent can get on the site and disrupt things. It is also required to so that I may, once a month, send out a newsletter letting everyone know about enhancements to the site.
Each alumni can upload up to 10 'Now' photos to go along with their profile. A donation of $20 will allow you to upload up to 20 'Now' photos as a time. Each photo can have it's own caption as well. If you wish to change out your photos you can simply delete an old one and upload something new. All photos should be no wider than 450px and must be in jpg format. If your photos are larger than 450px wide then they will be resized automatically prior to posting.
The 'Then' photo is reserved for your senior yearbook photo. You can post one 'Then' photo. All 'Then' photos should be no wider than 92px and in jpg format. All photos uploaded larger than 92px wide will be automatically resized prior to posting.
Each class can have one person be designated as the reunion contact for their year. That person can then post information regarding their reunion which will then appear on the home page. If you are the class reunion organizer for your class and someone else has already designated themselves as the reunion contact and you wish to dispute it you can email me and I will help facilitate a resolution if necessary.
Due to Wyandotte's long history we have an increasing older alumni population. If you know of a classmate who has passed away please let me know so that I can mark them as deceased on the site. If you have information regarding an alumni whom you're related to that has passed away you may email me their information and I will post it for you.
Any time you run into a problem, such as an error, or just a question please email me and I will be more than happy to help you. In the case of an error message, please copy and paste it into an email and send to me. This will help me help you much faster.
