Limited administrative access, minimal support and chronically out of date software mad it impossible to maintain the old Class site
on the free server space provided by the College. Moving the old site in toto
was not technically feasible, so we have rebuilt a new site with a much more intuitive address:
All new content will be added here to the new site, and content from the old site will gradually be moved. This may take some time, but links to content still on the old site will keep that material available. Here is what you can find and do here, with some information about how it works and how to use it:
- Registration and log-in. Most of the content is visible to the anonymous (not logged in) guest. The interactive aspects of the site require registration and are available only to logged-in users. The username and password information from the old site does NOT carry over to the new site, so you may have to re-register. I apologize for the inconvenience. Please let me know if you experience difficulty with this.
- News, stories and anecdotes about classmates and class activities. Old updates and stories can be found in the News section on the old site. The stories are about classmates, class activities, or Dartmouth itself and appear with the most recent on top. The most recent stories appear on the home page. Archives of old news stories can be accessed using the News Archive item in the Main Menu. Any visitor can read the news. Registered visitors can comment on news stories or submit stories for publication.
- Photo galleries. Moving these is an enormous task, so new photos will be here but old photos and their captions. All the content is visible to the anonymous guest.
- Forums for debates and discussions among classmates and friends and for transaction of Class business and planning Class events. The Forums consist of conversations grouped by topics (threads) which are organized into Administrative discussions (announcements and conversations about the site), Classmate conversations (class business, the 45th Reunion, and miscellaneous conversations) and a Sandbox for testing and learning how to use the Forum. If you are inexperienced in using online Forums, you might want to lurk for a while and test posting in the Sandbox. There are guidelines in the Welcome message. The discussions in the Forums can be read without logging in, but to participate in the Forum requires logging in.
- Class Business
- Officers contact and information page.
- Class meeting minutes, Treasurer's reports, Webmaster's reports.
- Old issues of the '69 Times for download
- An electronic Green Card to let you submit information simultaneously to the Dartmouth Alumni Magazine (Steve Larson), the '69Times (Allen Dennison), and the Dartmouth69.org web site (Peter Elias).
- A contact and feedback form to let us know how much you like the site, ask questions, make suggestions, or even offer to help.
- Links. Links about classmates and the College, grouped into categories, are being gradually moved to the new links page from the old links page. Please report broken links and suggest new links to help keep this current.
- Class connection information to help you stay in touch with Class activities, classmates and Dartmouth College. This is a summary page with descriptions and links to a number of interesting and useful ways to interact with us. It is well worth checking out. Please feel free to suggest additional items or links.
- Links to Dartmouth related information, including Dartmouth College, Student activities, Dartmouth Giving, and Alumni Affairs.
- In Memoriam is a slide show of departed classmates on the old site. It is out of date and a new version should be available this Winter and added to this site.
- The slide show of scenes from campus and its environs, accompanied by Dartmouth Undying.
- Subscription. To 'subscribe' and receive emailed notification of changes to the site, click here or use the RSS button in the top menu on the Home page. Subscription to the old site does not carry over. You can also subscribe to individual threads or groups of threads in the Forum. Instructions are in the About the Forum messages in the Forum.
More detailed information about the site and how to use it can be found in the Owner's Manual
Let me know if there is something you wish moved, added, or changes. As always, contributed content is welcome. Your classmates want to hear about you. Really, they do.
