When it started in 1995, it seemed like a good place to find friends from schools. That ended in 2015, when it was acquired by PeopleConnect, which uses Classmates.com to generate subscriptions for its other company Intelius.

Here's the user experience: You enter your schools, and they will display the classmates from your years there. The problem is that Classmates does not have your classmates in their database unless those classmates have registered on classmates.com. I listed 5 of the schools I attended and less than 2% of my classmates were in the database.

You can do an extended search for unlisted classmates, and it returns "0" results, with prominent CLICKBAIT to "find them using the Intelius service". You will wait at least 5 minutes while watching progress bars telling you that the service has found them, and compiling their criminal record, family members, residences, financial history, social media. AFTER 5 MINUTES OF WAITING, you get a screen to sign up for Intelius subscription service.

THAT IS THE REASON CLASSMATES IS STILL ONLINE, TO SERVE AS AS CLICKBAIT FOR INTELUS.

CLASSMATES.COM IS USELESS, and is FULL OF OTHER 3RD PARTY CLICKBAIT under every button, and on all sidebars, and pop-ups. If they ever get your email, they will bait you weekly with "one of your classmates says hi"

When COVID19 hit, all of our jobs cancelled. Since large assemblies of people were banned at the local/state/federal levels, we were not getting any new leads or bookings. We asked TheBash-Gigmasters to "share the burden" and suspend our account for a couple of months, and let us reinstate with the same account credit later. They refused, saying "you can suspend your account, but we'll continue to debit your annual membership". In other words, THEY CONTINUE TO MAKE PROFIT FROM VENDORS DURING THE COVID19 crisis. (By the way, their competitor GigSalad offers this "suspension" feature with no hassle to the vendor.)

Avoid TheBash-Gigmasters. They exploit their Vendors to increase profits. Vendors are at the bottom of the food-chain. They even sent all Vendors a notice, "encouraging" us to refund non-refundable deposits for the cancelled events (which we had already done), "so customers can use it for a future booking". TheBash would have Vendors pay ALL the burden for the COVID19 crisis, not customers, and certainly not The Bash. Their greedy Profiteering shines through!

“We've found the same thing. This company deserves to go bankrupt! They treat vendors like s#*%”
