Are you really addicted,Webmaster? How many sites have you made? How many servers have you tried? Tripod, Geocities, Angelfire, Hypermart — have you tried them all? Have you tried here-today-gone-tomorrow little webservers that nobody ever heard of before or will again?
Even paid for space?
You have found a kindred spirit.
The original "Invasion of the Web, One Site at a Time" webring died in the Great Yahoo Hullabaloo, but it has been resurrected here, for the spirit of "just one more website" lives on.
Just kidding. I know you know. You're a Net addict, right?
But just in case —
A webring is an automated way of linking related websites together so that the links are easier to navigate and to maintain.
"Invasion of the Web" is a ring to link the home pages of webmasters who have multiple sites, so that others can marvel at us (in awe or aghast, whatever) and we can feel not so isolatedly crazy, instead perhaps crazy in good company.
Maybe we can even share tips on website development.
Webring was originally created by Sage Weil, and resided at Webring.org. Then it migrated to Yahoo. Now it is independent again, and has migrated to Webring.com. If you haven't folowed the migrations, you will need to associate your site with the new system before you can edit it. To do so, go to http://dir.webring.com/rw
Before you apply:
When you apply:
When you click on the Join link at the Ring Hub page, you will have a form to fill out, giving information about your site. For the site address, you must enter the address of the page that you are going to put the webring code on. This should be a page that has clear links to the rest of your sites, which should also have clear links back to the page that the webring code is on. All of this will make navigating through the ring much easier for our visitors.
It may be easier to put the code on a central "webrings page." Once the code is on your page, the navigation bars for any rings you list that page with appear automagically as long as your site is active in the ring. If you do use a central webring page, however, it is only going to be of use to you if visitors have some way of navigating from it to the rest of your Web. And it will only be of use to the ring if they have a way of navigating back again.
You can have the site address point to the front page of your main site, and put the webring code on a separate page, but this will only pass if the link says "webrings" in text. Code is checked by an automated process. (If you use a graphics link, putting "webrings" in the 'alt' text may work.)
After you submit your answers to the form, you will be assigned a position number in the ring. Then click on "My Rings" and "Get Nav Bar" to copy the navigation code and insert it into your page. (If you have already posted a Webring Navigation Bar on your page, you don't have to do this again.) If you need the code again for any reason, you can get it displayed at any time by signing in at Webring.
If you choose to display a webring graphic logo, please save it to your own server area.
As soon as I take a look at your site, I will let you know whether you are added to the ring. Even after I add you, though, your site will be in "suspended" status until you have posted your webring navigation code. So if you're having any problems at all with that, please let me know!
