Internet Writers' Guild  Webring Home Page

Welcome

Welcome to the Home Page for the Internet Writers' Guild Webring.

This page guides you through the process of joining this webring.

If you have any questions about this webring, please email me.


Rules For This Webring

Purpose

This webring brings together the authors of web published art and literature, and promotes their work to the internet community at large.

If you have art or literature on your website, you would qualify for inclusion in this webring.

Other Rules

  1. You must register the page containing the actual Webring Controls for the Internet Writers' Guild Webring, and
     
  2. It must have a clear link from the primary ("home", "index" or "default") page for your site to the Internet Writers' Guild Webring Controls (e.g., a link labeled "webrings").

These requirements are to ensure

  1. that webring travelers can easily continue linking through the sites, and
     
  2. that other visitors to your site can easily find your webrings.

The Process For Joining

General Process for Joining Webrings

Joining a non-Yahoo! WebRing is very simple. In general, the process is the same for every non-Yahoo! WebRing:

  1. Register your site in the Webring Queue using a simple form.

    This form is either present on or linked to by the Webring Home Page. It generally asks for the some combination of (a) site title, (b) URL, (c) description, (d) webmaster name (e) webmaster email address, (f) keywords and (g) a description. Some webring systems (e.g., Ringlink) also ask you to supply your own Site ID.

    When submitted, the webring system creates an entry in the Webring Queue for this site, and, if necessary, assigns a Site ID to your entry and stores all  your information.

    Many webring systems also send a confirming email to the webmaster email address.
     
  2. Copy any required graphics from the Webring Home Page to your server.
     
    Most ringmasters do not want you to link directly to their graphics. Instead, you must copy the graphics to your site.
     
    Note: For some webmasters, particularly those using "web editors" like those for Geocities and Yahoo!, "copying to the server" is sometimes a mystery. They think it means "put the graphic on the web page". It does not. But, I've got special instructions to help those people.
     
  3. Put the Webring Controls on the page you registered and make any modifications required according to the instructions you receive.

    Some webring systems pop-up a page with the Webring Controls, some require you to go to a page to get them, and most also send the Webring Controls in the confirming email.
     
  4. Notify the ringmaster that you put the Webring Controls on your page.
     
  5. The ringmaster reviews the site and moves you from the queue into the webring.

 

Process for Joining the Internet Writers' Guild Webring

  1. Copy whichever Internet Writers' Guild graphic you prefer from this page (below) to your site. (You must host this graphic on your site.) Remember where you put it.
     
  2. Click here or on the Join Button to open the registration form

                        Click here to open the registration form for the Internet Writers' Guild Webring.

    The form will open in a new window.
    This page will remain open so you can use it for directions.
    Fill out and submit the form.
    Do not close the page that comes up after submitting the form.
    Continue here after you finish submitting.
     
  3. When you click the submit button to register the next page will present the HTML for all the webring controls. You will also receive an email with your Site ID and all the HTML for the controls. Copy the HTML.
     
  4. Place the HTML for the Webring Controls on the page you registered. (NB: The controls must appear on the registered page). Note that although you are sent the HTML for all the Webring Controls, you only need one. The suggested approach is to place the entire set of HTML and then to remove the parts you do not want.
     
  5. Modify the HTML to reference the graphic you placed on your site. You may also make other custom changes, provided you use an authorized graphic, maintain the functions, use appropriate title parameters and remain true to the spirit of the webring.
     
  6. Return the email you received so I can check your work.
     
  7. I check out what you have done and, assuming you did it right, I move you from the Queue into the Webring.

What is the "history" of this webring?

In early January of 2000, Adopt-a-Ring at Webring.org determined that the the webring had been abandoned. After application, I was appointed as the new ringmaster for the webring. I've been the ringmaster since.

After becoming ringmaster, I modified the controls for the Webring and added an alternate graphic with an alternate set of controls.

In August of 2000 the first wave of changes related to the Yahoo! assimilation of the Original WebRing system began. On 05.Sep.2000, the assimilation occurred. In the many months that followed I created the Wazillion Navbars Project to explore the problems of the new system, I posted hundreds of informative and corrective emails and I explored the possibilities of the new system.

In February of 2001, I moved this webring from Yahoo! WebRing to RingSurf.

Other Webrings I Run

Right now I own many, many webrings. Some I started; some I adopted.

Four of these are on RingSurf, one is on Ringlink and the remainder (a very large number) are on the WebRing.com system (formerly Yahoo! WebRing).

Webring FAQWebring FAQ:  What is a webring? Is it webring (one word) or web ring (two words)? Is it webring (no caps), Webring (initial cap) or WebRing (double caps)? How many webring systems are there? How do webrings work? Why would someone want to join a webring? How does someone join a webring? How does someone create a webring?  


How Do You Spell "Webring"?

That is an interesting question. Is it "WebRing" or "Webring" or "webring" or "web ring". And is a "ring" the same as a "webring"? For the answer, see my Webring FAQ Page.

Browser and search engine improvements have eliminated the motivation/necessity for them.
