It takes just a minute to reg­is­ter to cre­ate your page. Then you can: Com­ment on ar­ti­cles on the site Cre­ate blogs and link to friends Up­load photo gal­leries and videos.


It is sim­ple to join and gain ac­cess to all the free fa­cil­i­ties that we are of­fer­ing. Here’s how:


Visit www.TheJC.com, and click on the “Reg­is­ter” link at the very top right of the page. Then you need only choose a user name (prefer­ably your real name, or your or­gan­i­sa­tion’s name) and en­ter a valid email ad­dress. Once you have read and clicked to ac­cept our terms and con­di­tions, click on the but­ton marked “Cre­ate new ac­count”. (Our terms and con­di­tions in­clude im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion — such as the fact that of­fen­sive or abu­sive lan­guage will lead to users be­ing banned.)


An email will ar­rive from TheJC.com attheemailad­dressy­ousup­plied.(Ifyou can­not see it, check your spam fil­ter.) The email will con­tain a unique web­site ad­dress, which you click on to reg­is­ter.

Mem­bers can cre­ate a home page, where they can choose to tell other site users about them­selves — or al­ter­na­tively use it to blog, up­load pho­tos and video, and pro­mote events and sim­chahs.

You, the user, are in full con­trol

First, you can de­ter­mine how your home page will work. You can choose to in­clude a guest­book, where other reg­is­tered mem­bers can post com­ments. If you choose to have a guest­book, you can de­cide whether your mes­sages will be pri­vate to you, or whether other users can also read them. Now you can tell other users about your­self. We ask you to reg­is­ter us­ing your real name — partly be­cause we want our com­mu­nity to be ac­count­able, but also so that other users can find you.


Once logged in, you will see a panel on the top left of your home page headed: “Add con­tent”. This lets you add your own blog, which you can up­date as of­ten as you like. You can cre­ate gal­leries of your pho­to­graphs. You can up­load video and can also cre­ate a “Group” that other reg­is­tered users can join. If you are plan­ning a sim­chah, you can eas­ily cre­ate a cel­e­bra­tory page. If you click on “User blogs” or “Sim­chah/event” in the menu bar at the top of your page, you can ex­plore what other mem­bers of the com­mu­nity are say­ing and do­ing.


A key as­pect of TheJC.com is the ease with which you can con­nect with other mem­bers of the com­mu­nity. At the top of your home page, you can search for other users by their real name or their user name. Then sim­ply click on a name to be taken to their home page. When you visit an­other user’s home page, you can ask to be­come their “Friend”.


You can also place ad­ver­tise­ments on the web­site, at a dis­count, and can ob­tain a JC sub­scrip­tion.
