Can't Log In?

In order to help protect our classmates' privacy, only Sandcrabs from the Class of 1988 can view the profiles. 

If you are a classmate who has been able to log in successfully in the past, but your login is now not working, this is what our software developer has told us:

One of my Classmates cannot log in. She is typing the login and password correctly. Now what?

Aren't cookies bad? I've heard concerns about cookies and privacy issues.

Answer: No. The "cookie scare" of the late 1990s was largely based on misconceptions that cookies stored on your computer's hard drive somehow violated privacy. Erroneous information regarding cookies has long since been corrected, and cookies are a common programming practice used today by some of the Internet's largest web sites. There is nothing Class Creator does with cookies that will in any way jeopardize your privacy, store personal information about you, or submit your personal information to other web sites.
