Why do I need to verify my email for membership?


  • The reason why you need to verify your mail address is one of the simple security methods to ensure you are not being ‘spoofed’ by someone that is not you trying to pretend to be you.
  • Also, the measure gives me a ‘heads up’ that your are joining the site and I can review your info to be sure you should be a member of our family website.
  • If I did not require this email verification step in the membership sign up process, someone could become a member and start using the website, communicating, view other private member profiles, etc. before I realize whether they are a legitimate family member or not and block them off or not.

Why does the website slow down from 3 am – 6 am EST?


Daily ‘full site’ backups are running from 3 am – 6 am EST everyday. This site is huge! It takes a lot of processing power just to run it but then it takes even more to collect the 1.1 GBs, with all of the databases, settings and code. Then compress it and store it in the cloud. 

As I continue to improve things I will do my best to stream-line the code, media and tweak the server settings for improved performance. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding during those early morning hours!

Why should I/we use this website instead of FaKeBook | FalseBook?


 

  1. This is a ‘Members Only’ private Family Base-Camp designed to help our families stay more connected, plan events, share photos, recipes, movie recommendations, chat & pm with each other – privately!
  2.  This website will NEVER sell your private information!
  3.  This website will NEVER share your private information!
  4. This website is designed to be ‘appropriate’ for ALL ages of our families!
  5. This website WILL reduce the ‘clutter’ of information we are consuming and filter to what is important to us – not what your friend in Timbuktu had for breakfast or any other silly details of what they were doing while ‘Day Drinking’ (might have been funny)!
  6. This website will give us family members the ‘secure’, ‘private’ and ‘FUN’ connection that we have all been waiting for!
