Chit Chat / WebRing of Video Game Developer Bloggers

A webring is a group of sites which share a common interest and have a forward and back links to each other's sites via a footer or side panel.

This webring is about bloggers who are creating their own video games.

Some reasons why you might want a site or blog... https://indieweb.org/why

It's open to everyone making video games and writing a blog (http only, https currently not supported).
The WebRing NavBar (next, back, etc) must appear on all pages of the blog.

Signing up to webringo and submitting your site is not mandatory, but the benefit is that you can custom create your banner (colours and sizes). If you don't want to sign up to webringo, contact me ( mike (*a*t*) mgarcia.org ) with these details, and I'll add you:

Name- How ever you like to name your site, up to 50 characters.
URL- The ring code must be placed on this page to validate.
Title- A short, descriptive blurb about the site, up to 80 characters.
Description- Up to 2000 characters. Extra characters will be discarded.
Keywords- Words separated by spaces, up to 250 characters. Extra characters will be discarded.
Orientation- Horizontal or Vertical.
Type- Code in JavaScript, iframe or static HTML (http://webringo.com/forum/index.php?action=kb;area=article;cont=20).

Anyway, leave any thoughts below.

Let me see if we can get that going. There's a lot of stuff on our plates right now but we'll try and implement it either that way or maybe through Cloudflare.


There's a company (linux fundation) that does free https certs.

Hi again.
My only member uses https exclusively, and modern browsers block any mixing of protocols.

I had problems finding the addurl link on the menu, I wasn't looking there.. i was focused on the admin panel.
Also adding a site to the webring isn't in the admin panel.

A feature I was thinking about was adding RSS URL's of the webring members, combining all the members RSS feeds into one webring feed for updates.

Cheers
Mike.

Your user name and login name are now the same, both are "mgarcia".

Note that you'll need to change your password to complete this (you'll get an email with the link).


thanks works :)

I've not heard that, to be honest. We tried to make it fairly straightforward, but there are a lot of moving parts and try as we did, it could only be simplified so much. And with a webring and all of the one-to-many and many-to-one relationships it can be a bit confusing at first.

There's a fairly extensive Help Section that may shed some light on things, it has a lot of walk-throughs and step-by-step stuff, so feel free to have a look at it: 

Ring Help & FAQ(http://webringo.com/forum/index.php?action=kb)
We did some user testing (while building the site) and found that most people could successfully get sites and rings added, but yeah there's always something that could be made clearer. :)

If you have suggestions I'd be glad to hear them. I can't promise what will happen but if it's something we can do we'll look into doing it.

Cheers


I found/find the process of adding sites and editing the ring.. all over the place on the menu.
It wasn't intuitive for me.. and the icons are unclear.
Just some feed back, you probably heard many times anyway.

thanks again :)
Mike.

Hi,
I'm starting a webring for game developers which code their own tech.
Not that many do these days, but it's still an interesting hobby :)
