    Since I am currently running the b2 webring, is there a need for a word press one? I have no problem running that one as well as there is a ton of room on the server. :)
    Just need a go-ahead and a name for it.

    Sounds like a good idea, "WordPress" has a nice ring to it, though "WordPress Power" or something like that would be fine too. It's up to you!

    Thanks for setting that up! Just a note to people joining, you'll want to encode the french double quotes it gives you or it'll break validation on your page. They should be &raquot; and &laquot; respectively.

    You are welcome. :) I didn't know that about the double quotes, should I change it?

    Is this ring still being maintained?

    I've joined but...
    The code includes style="text-decoration: none;" which
    1) is almost invisible on my site
    2) overrides my css
    3) doesn't separate content from layout.
    so I removed the style declaration. but that's obviously a violation of the web-ring rules. I guess I could wrap a no-style id around it. hmmm pause to consider.

    You can modify the code to make it work, just don't modify the Ring Surf code. :)

    I've seen lots of web rings around. I never really understood the concept. I'm not trying to be glib here, but why would I want to join a webring?

    Actually it will draw more people to your site...if you have something profound to say to the world, you can get through to more people this way. I join them as I like having other sites in a ring that are like mine. For instance I have tutorials and I'm in a ring that links tutorial sites together. It makes it easier for people to find a tutorial they can use if there are a bunch of sites linked together. Does that make sense?
    From the http://ringsaround.net homepage: A webring is a community of pages with related content, organized into a virtual ring. Each page in a ring has links which let visitors move to an adjacent site on the ring, summon a ring index, or hop to a random site. Webrings let web visitors quickly and reliably find sites with related subjects.

    Could an admin please make this a sticky thread? The webring is growing, but it's very slowly growing. Thanks! :)

    After all of the server changes I've made over the past couple of months, I forgot to put the webring code back on my main pages (whoops!). Obviously I ended up being removed. Should I re-register or do you re-activate old accounts? I only ask because I liked being #13 :)

    You will have to register for the ring again.
    That would be cool to have it in the Wiki. I'm not sure where either. Maybe there's a misc. section or one should be created?

    No. That ring has been deleted. I deleted it and all the members in mid-August.
