How to prepare for the possible death of Webring (part one)
I wrote this: "Error message on attempt to create a folder in my webspace, just now: "Create folder failed. /wr/art No write access to this file/folder. Problem reported in both the Webring Webspace help forum (a few days ago) and in an email to support, in which the broken links to the help forums and the pending help requests from last year were mentioned. No response. Nothing."
to which BBSGarage (one of the chatbox regulars) responded: "dont have webspace myself but from what ive seen, that is a common complaint."
after which I said: "So they know about the problem, and can't be bothered to fix it? Thanks, BBS. Knowing that I'm not going to get any help might not make my day, but at least it keeps me from wasting any more time checking back for a helpful reply from Support that's never going to come."
Not that I really did give up at that point, though I probably should have. I went on to say
"Last night, I noticed that Webring's system had sent me a 'welcome to webring' message in which I was asked how everything was going. I sent a reply in which I answered that question, mentioning the webspace creation problem, and said that I'd be pleasantly surprised if anybody ever read that reponse. For those keeping track, this is now four different ways in which I've reported the problem: 1. In the help forum. 2. In an email to membership using their form. 3. In the shoutbox. 4. In a reply to their welcome message, by PM. Still no action, and I'm left with the question of exactly how they would like to be notified? By singing telegram, maybe? Do people still do those? I saw one in a black and white movie, once. Probably wouldn't be as effective if somebody tried to do one, today, in May. It's a rare woman who can tap dance in flip flops."
everytime I visit a website with some navigation bar from webring I am AUTOMATICALLY redirected TO webring. Highly annoying. Best is to leave webring and delete their script from your site.
