Neocities and Webringo
« on: July 28, 2018, 03:37:40 PM »
Have Webringo management looked at Neocities.org?  It seems to me that webrings and Neocities websites are made for each other, except all those Neocities webmasters don't know about Webringo.  (Both Webring and Ringsurf are malfunctioning when somebody tries to register.  I think you are the last ring host fully functioning.)

Anyway, it might be worth sending an email to Neocities asking to be listed in any webmaster resource lists, if they have one.  It seems to be too good of an opportunity to pass up.

Just a thought.

Hi Mike,

Also, I don't know if you are aware, but the Indieweb movement is discussing a "Webring revival".  Some info here: indieweb.org/webring

I added webringo.com to the list on that page.  Frankly, I think Indieweb folks are more interested in coding their own, but if they make webrings in general, popular again you might be in a good position to gain some users among people like me who don't code.

I hope you don't mind, I just thought I'd let you know about some trends.

Thanks for letting me know about that, and for adding us to that page. The indieweb.org folks are more than welcome to come and set up shop here if they'd like.

I've not followed the topic or the overall web ring stuff; I run this site as a favor to some long-time users who fled Webring. I'd consider transferring the site to someone who would continue to run and maintain it, but it's a low priority for me at the moment.

Aside from the forum, the site is all custom coded. I built it as an alternative to Webring, which had gotten pretty dreadful as they made 'improvements' to it.

Wow.  Hats off to you for custom coding it and running it all these years.

Thank you for keeping this site going, I would hate for the last ringhost to disappear.
