What Is a WebRing.com System Webring?
The WebRing.com system is the largest and most prominent brand of webring system. It is the direct descendent of the Original WebRing created by Sage Weil.
First owned by Starseed, then by Geocities, it was acquired by Yahoo!. In September 2000, Yahoo! assimilated the Original WebRing and replaced it with Yahoo! WebRing. Then on 12.Oct.2001, Yahoo! spun off the system to create the WebRing.com system as an independent webring host.
For an extensive list of resources, including more history of the concept of webrings and lots more information about the WebRing.com system, see my section on the WebRing.com system.
What are These Webrings?
The webrings shown on this page are webrings in the WebRing.com system that I own and run.
Some are WebRing.com system webrings that I have "adopted". These were webrings that someone else created and, eventually, offered to me to adopt as the new Ringmaster.
Others are webrings that I began.
I run all of them under the WebRing.com User ID of JLIILJ.
What About "Other" Webrings?
In addition to webrings on the WebRing.com system (formerly the Yahoo! WebRing system), I also operate webrings on other webring systems like Rinklink, RingSurf and Bravenet. For a complete list of the webrings I own, go to this page: Webrings I Run.
What Is This Page?
Some of my Yahoo! WebRings have their own dedicated home page. For example see RingMasters Disappointed With Yahoo! WebRing. It has a dedicated home page here.
But others do not have a dedicated home page. They share this page as their home page.

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.
The Wazillion Navbars Project
This subsection is a historical section about the Yahoo! WebRing system. It was begun during the early days of problems with the Yahoo! WebRing system in September 2000.
It ended when the Yahoo! WebRing system spun off into the independent WebRing.com system in October 2001. I maintain it for the historical record. Click here or on the graphic.
