Welcome to The Animation Ring! You might ask, "What is a webring?". Well,
a webring is a way of joining pages of similar content around the net by displaying a simple graphic.
It is another way of surfing and increasing hits to a person's site. As one continues to click on "next" for example,
the next site in the ring is displayed. Eventually, the surfer will eventually return to your site as all
sites are in a "ring". Anyway, I have created this ring because I believe webrings are creative ways
to increase hits to a site and thus increase a site's exposure.
The purpose of this particular webring is to unite
all web pages that have content about animation characters and/or have an animated GIFS collection. Since I believe that the foundation of animation mainly originated from moving cartoon characters, I thought it was
vital to include both. I am fairly flexible with this so I hope that you do join and enrich the ring. It is simple to join, so just follow
the three simple steps in "New Members Joining the Ring".
If you feel that you meet the requirements, then by all means, do proceed to join the ring!
STEP 1: Fill out the following form and click "Submit Site to Queue". If you make an error after you click on "Submit Site to Queue", then please e-mail me (the Ringmaster)
with your site ID number and the concern. I will make the appropriate change(s) for you
After filling out this form successfully, you will receive an e-mail verifying your registration (site ID #, URL, title, and password).
It is now time to choose which HTML fragment you would like to have
displayed on your site to identify that your site is part of the ring
and to allow people to surf the ring. There are currently four choices
available for you to choose.
Please CLICK HERE to pick up
an HTML fragment for your site
STEP 3: E-mail the Ringmaster or a random site within the ring with your site ID number and URL. The ringmaster or the person you e-mailed will check out your site
to make sure that it meets all the requirements and does not contain inappropriate material. Please remember to have the code on your page BEFORE you e-mail the
ringmaster. If the code is not on the page, you will not be added to the ring.
If everything checks out ok, you will receive an e-mail informing you that you're a member of the ring.
Please write down your site ID and password for future use. Or, you can keep the e-mail that is sent to you with all the information that you need to know. This is important when someone
wanting to be added into the ring asks you to add him/her in. You will need your site ID number and password in order to add that person in the ring.
And... that's it! You're a member of the ring. You can confirm this by testing out the ring and navigating through it.
Eventually, you should be able to come back to your page. If you're not a member yet (ie. you haven't received the second e-mail confirming your membership) but you do have the
code on your page, every command will point you directly to this page.
NOTE: Only ring members can add sites to the ring. To learn more about becoming a member of this ring, please read how to join the ring.
If you are a ring member, then you might receive an e-mail from someone who wants to join the ring asking you to add their site to the ring. They will (hopefully) include their site
ID number and URL. It is your responsibility to check out their site in order to make sure that it meets all the requirements outlined above.
Please also make sure that their website has the correct HTML fragment, and that the webring is easily accessible from the main page in order to preserve the integrity of the ring.
If there are any problems, please e-mail the site manager or e-mail the ringmaster. If everything is ok, then you
can proceed to add their site to the ring. Also, remember that you need to have your own site ID number and password in order to add someone else to the ring. If you've forgotten
your password, e-mail the Ringmaster. If you don't remember your site ID number, you can always view the html code and find out your site ID from there.
RING MEMBERS: Please remember that if you move, then you must complete the following form. Input your site ID number and password and click on "Edit Site Information"
in order to change such things like your URL, site title, e-mail address, and password.
