Other Yahoo! Integration Projects
This section of my website holds my reference information about the old Yahoo! WebRing system. The Yahoo! WebRing system no longer exists. On 12.Oct.2001, Yahoo! announced that it was leaving the webring business. The Yahoo! WebRing system was "spun off" and new operates as the WebRing.com system. See my section on the WebRing.com system for the latest information.
This page provides links to resources about other system integration projects currently underway at Yahoo!
What is integration?
Yahoo! has grown, in part, by acquiring other systems and integrating them into the Yahoo! community.
For example, Geocities was acquired and integrated in 1999.
It was the Geocities acquisition which gave Yahoo! the Original WebRing system.
Yahoo! has other integration projects underway, including the integration of EGroups and the old Yahoo! Clubs system into the new Yahoo! Groups system.
(EGroups, interestingly enough, had just recently acquired ONElist prior to being acquired by Yahoo!)
It is sometimes useful to look at the experiences of other integration projects to see how them compare with your own.
This page provides links to information sources on the other integration projects.
If you discover a useful source of such information, please email me so that I can link to it.
Other Yahoo! Integration
EGroups/Yahoo! Integration: This page on EGroups discusses the EGroups/Yahoo! Integration. While this is not technically related to the Webring/Yahoo! integration, it provides a contrasting view of another Yahoo! integration that is slightly ahead of the Webring integration. (www.egroups.com/local/news.html)
EGroups/Yahoo! Merger Discussion Group: A very active group. Interestingly enough, this discussion includes many postings about the need for and issues of a Yahoo! ID. It also contains some long threads about Yahoo! Terms of Service and copyright issues. To subscribe, send a blank message to: merger-subscribe@EGroups.com. Or go to the website. (www.egroups.com/group/merger)
EGroups/Yahoo! Clubs Discussion Group: Another very active group. This group seems to consist of a large number of Yahoo! Club founders. These are very upset that the resulting hybrid will look more like EGroups than like Yahoo Clubs. To subscribe, send a blank message to: yahooclubs-subscribe@EGroups.com. Or go to the website.

Webring Sections and Subsections
The Webring Section is a large section of my website. I have divided it into four major "subsections".
each "subsection" has it's own special "logo".
As you travel in the various subsections you will find, near the bottom of each page, links to pages within that subsection and also links to the other subsections. To go to any subsection, just click on the "logo" or on the text link for that subsection.
Webrings: General Information
This subsection includes general information about webrings. Webrings can be hosted by a variety of different services. This section deals with the overall concepts and issues, not with any one particular "brand" of webring.
The WebRing.com System
This subsection includes specific information about the WebRing.com system.
While not the only webring system on the net, it is the best known and the most used. I own many webrings in this system and belong to many webrings in this system. (I also own and belong to many webrings in other systems as well.) Click here or on the graphic.
Webrings I Own and Belong To
This subsection shows all the webrings I own and links to all the webrings to which I belong. This includes webrings in Ringlink, RingSurf, Bravenet and the WebRing.com system as well.
If you are looking to join one of my webrings, this is a good place to start. If you wonder about the webrings I belong to, this is the place to go. Click here or on the graphic.
