The class is not on CTAN and hence not distributed with TeX Live.

All i can say is https://ctan.org/topic/memorandum

Indeed, removed.

An update can make all your files incompilabe after two days. It is your decision to do it or not.

Basic problem with frontmatter/backmatter and the hyperref package Topic is solved

Your titlepage is part of the document. It is, in case, the very first page. Page number one. But later, there is another page numbered one, so package hyperref gets confused where to put the links. Either, except that the titlepage is a physical page and has a number and that the introduction is on...

Want to replace numbers with author,year in in text citation

Bibliography style plain is a numbered style (as you can see), this is the Vancouver system of citing.
You are looking for a style in the Harvard system, which means author-date.
Please have a look at Where can I find collections of bibliography styles?

Generic title page needs optimization Topic is solved

What if the width extend the given size of the rule? For example, look at the title The influence of pidgeon dust on statues made of bronze in a vacuum on a sunny day?

How do you deal with that?

Generic title page needs optimization Topic is solved

No, not really a suggestion from my side.
It sounds lie you want self adjusting code, the spacing will be different for each different titlepage.

I suggest to space stuff by hand by looking at the output.

Generic title page needs optimization Topic is solved

Just leave out the figure environment. You do not need it to include a graphic.

Have you looked at TikZ? It allows you absolute positioning on the page. It can also draw the lines for you.

I think this is what you are looking for.

Unfortunately, i am not a TikZ person.

Generic title page needs optimization Topic is solved

  1. \vspace{0.5in}
  2. \vspace*{\baselineskip}

This is weird spacing for me.

Apart from that, the page is fine and i don't know what you want to optimize.

Generic title page needs optimization Topic is solved

Never ever use a figure environment on a title page. Get rid of all those weird spaces. Start from scratch. Have a look at https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Title_Creation ( and the links at the bottom) as well as http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/209993/how-to-customize-my-titlepage/210280#2...
