Christmas from Santa

A Webring Home Page

This is the "home page" of this webring I own. The home page provides lots of information. For example, it:

  • Introduces the webring,
     
  • Outlines the membership rules,
     
  • explains how to join,
     
  • Provides a sample of the navbar,
     
  • Provides contact information for me,
     
  • Links to the many other webrings I own, and
     
  • Links to my extensive webring help information.

For more information, check the links to the right.

Also, see the extensive information at the bottom of this page.


The Purpose of This Webring

This webring is for commercial sites offering letters and Christmas gifts from Santa.

The Membership Rules

 

Important Steps

Describe how your site relates to the webring topic.

■ Use the JavaScript, not the HTML.

■ Put the code on the registered page.

■ Pay close attention to the welcome email you receive.

email me if you need any assistance.

1. This is not an "anything goes" webring. Not every application is approved. Your page must relate to the theme of this webring. When you write your site description, describe how it belongs to this webring. Help visitors to quickly and easily see the connection between your site and this webring.

2. Use the JavaScript code, including the "noscript". This webring does not currently permit use of "native HTML". If you do not use the JavaScript, the system checker will suspend your site.

3. Put the webring code onto the registered page. You must register the page that will contain the webring code. And you must put the code on the page you have registered. This webring does not permit "Pass_L".

4. This webring does not admit commercial sites.

6. This webring does not admit other webrings or pages which are just a list of webrings. It also does not admit Webring Owner Profile Pages. It's ok to promote your own webrings. But I want surfers through this webring to find something more than just another webring. Instead of submitting your webring, submit your site.

6. This webring also does not admit:

Note: The links above point to my Terms of Service for more detailed explanations. If you have any questions about these restrictions, please email me.

7. From time to time, I email webring members. By joining, you explicitly opt-in (per the USA CAN-SPAM Act) to receive relationship and transactional emails for purposes of operating and promoting this webring, other webrings, my website and other similar functions. See My Terms of Service.

8. I have other membership rules and WebRing.com does too. I put them in My Terms of Service and incorporate them here by reference. Your submission constitutes explicit acceptance of these rules too. You should also read the WebRing.com Terms of Service. Your submission constitutes explicit acceptance of the WebRing.com rules.

How Long Will Approval Take?

I work diligently to process applications within 3 weeks. However, I own a large number of webrings and I travel. Sometimes, it can take as much as 6 weeks. If you have any questions or if your special and unusual circumstances somehow require special handling, please email me.

The Navbar

NB: The WebRing.com system loads the navbar on this page.
A JavaScript capable browser is required; alternative links are provided.
Please allow time for the WebRing.com system to respond and load the navbar.

Comments for the
Christmas from Santa Webring

The best way to explore my site (and to get to know me) is to start with my "Home Page". From there the "Front Door" will provide some highlights of the site, information on my navigation scheme and a bevy of graphics for the organizations I belong to and support. Then "Stuff About Me" will provide more info about me than you could possibly want.

From there, I'd suggest just exploring the various parts of the site as suits your interests.

 Webring News and Announcements

.
 

WebRing.com Changes Big Time ---  It was October 2001 that WebRing.com came into existence following the end of Yahoo! Webring. Now, 5 years later, WebRing.com is changing again. Moving from primarily a free service to primarily a paid service, the system is undergoing massive change. Stay tuned.

Ringlink Activity  ---  While Ringlink has not released a new version since Version 3.2 on 21.Feb.2005, the system seems to be getting a lot of activity. Many people are discovering this great webring system and moving their webrings here. If you don't know about Ringlink, definitely check out this great webring system. I personally recommend it.

The appearance of this logo in this article does not imply any endorsement or affiliation of any kind between this site or the author and the World of Webrings Community.  

WoW  ---  The World of Webrings features the World of Webrings discussion list. It offers a forum for both webring owners (ringmasters) and webring members to discuss the latest hot topics about all webrings, including WebRing.com, Ringlink , Alt-Webring, RingSurf, Bravenet and others. If you belong to any webring in any webring service, you should join this list.

RingSurf Passes 3 Year Anniversary  ---  It was 3 years ago, on 16.Aug.2003 when the WoW list list noted that RingSurf's domain name registration had changed. Then the new owner came forward. A RingSurf Feature List was developed and debated. Then, on Thanksgiving day, 27.Nov.2003 the new owner posted on the WoW list that the new RingSurf is up! If you haven't checked it out lately, see what has happened in the last three years.

James S. Huggins is interviewed and quoted in a new Salon.com article entitled: The Strange Saga of Yahoo and Webring (05.Dec.2001)  

Article About Webrings  ---  Check out this excellent Salon.com article about the history of Yahoo! and WebRing.com: The Strange Saga of Yahoo and Webring . For some, it will bring back memories. For others, it will explain the history. Now, I wonder if they will update it to talk about the latest WebRing.com changes.

Webring Sections and Subsections

The Webring Section is a large section of my website. I have divided it into four major "subsections".

  • General Information
  • The WebRing.com System
  • Webrings I Own and Belong To
  • The Wazillion Navbars Project

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.

It includes my Webring FAQ, links to articles about webrings, and general help information. Click here or on the graphic.

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.

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.

The extra text menu links (previously here) are being removed in the site redesign.
