HISTORY OF WEST END ONLINE

 
In mid 2000, I joined Classmates.com to locate some of my old high school friends. Shortly thereafter, I polled all listed classmates regarding their interest in a 40th reunion and was answered with a resounding yes. In her email, Kay Tyler mentioned that she organized the Birmingham 'Magic City Boppers' dance club, so I asked if she would help with a class reunion to be held in 2001. Kay accepted and the rest is history. We decided that a website would be the easiest way to keep classmates informed about reunion plans. I uploaded two pages and West End Online went live on February 25, 2001. As word spread, I began to receive many emails and photos, so I added feature pages and began posting photos.  By week 28, we had over 20,000 site visits. Since 2001, we have held 4 class reunions and 5 class picnics.

WEO went live in February 2001, twenty-two years ago. In 2004, the Classmates.com marketing director informed us that WEO was the largest dedicated school reunion website site they had seen and was surely the largest in the world. WEO has since more than doubled, so the same likely holds true today. - Cliff Walker

WEB SITE RENDERING
  

West End Online was built in 2001 using Microsoft Frontpage, which was introduced before the advent of smartphones and tablets. Frontpage coding enables pages to render properly on desktop monitors and laptop computers. However, if you browse WEO on a smart phone or tablet, you may need to scroll to enlarge text and photos for viewing (not ideal, but it suffices). To correct this, I would have to rebuild WEO from scratch using more current software. Needless to say, with over 400 pages, this would be a daunting task.
