Hank, I think the board is fine the way it is, I liked the suggestion of a place to post pictures... Is there a place for a small biography or "news" about each member? That they can update and edit on their own when news changes.. a sort of a blog perhaps? I think getting the word out about the messege board would bring more people in. I haven't even been back to classmates.com since they charged to even post messeges.

Hank, it would be useful if the site allowed sorting on place of residence.
E.g., we travel some in the US and often I would like to know if there are OHS alumni in a given state or city. If happen to be "Olneyites" in a city we visit, it would be nice to be able to contact them .
Thanks for creating & maintaining this site. I find it very helpful.
Click on Search, and enter anything, graduating year, first name, last name, madien, city, state, zip code and it will show you a list of alumni that have what you typed in their info.
Also, You can open a view details page from each alumni. Just view a list or search and then click "View". It will show you more details about each alumni.
I'm also about finished with a way for each alumni to update their own info and fill in news and information about themselves that they want to share. I am also working on a way for alumni to upload pictures and put them in their news area.

You can now update your own info and add pictures and info to your news area. Kind of like a blog. Click Update Your Info, then search for your entry, then you can update your listing. Read the instructions at the bottom to put pictures on your listing.
Please let me know if you have any problems.
