Hello WebRingers!

It has been a very long time since our last newsletter, and much has been underway at WebRing. This newsletter is the first of more regular updates to WebRing members. Thank you all for everything you do to utilize, support and promote WebRing! Without our dedicated and loyal members, we would not be the community we strive to be. Thanks and ever thanks. Now, let's get down to business.

New Office

WebRing, Inc., opened a new office in April and hired editorial, marketing, system administration and office management staff. Our next newsletter will include more information about the individuals who are working here. We have so much to tell you, we'll have to skip the bios for now.

New WebRing Look

We are currently in the process of refreshing the look of the system. WebRing has gone through several user interface changes in its 10-year history, but not much has changed in regard to the look of the system for years. Frankly, we need a facelift. Our incredible designer has managed to create a new look that leaves most of the links and data on the pages as you know them.

We aren't making any significant changes to the system. We're fixing a few flat tires, cleaning up and condensing the copy on each page and re-ordering information so it's easier to find. Nothing is ready to reveal at this point, but when it is, you will be the first to know!

Servers and Service

We had some hardware issues recently when we experienced a server failure. That server has been replaced. We certainly apologize for any inconvenience that may have caused you. We feel we are past those specific problems now. As always, please let us know if you notice anything not functioning as it should. We appreciate your help with that!

We have added a new mail server, as well. Speaking of mail: we'd like to remind all members to regularly check their bulk mail folders for important WR mail. Every system treats mail differently, and sometimes important WebRing mail might appear to your system as junk (imagine that!).

We need to send another reminder: for members and ring managers who are placing navigation code, it goes in the BODY of the page, not in comments, noscript, noframes or head sections. If you load the navigation code in any other place than the body, the code won't actually display.

Adoptable rings

We recognize that there are a lot of rings up for adoption. Because we are reviewing our policies in all areas of WebRing, we are a little reluctant to adopt out many rings, then make changes to the policies that might affect them. For help with adoptable rings, please visit: http://dir.webring.com/help.

More Soon

Look for another newsletter from us soon. We want to improve our communication with members and improve the system as we move forward.

And again, we'd like to emphasize that you will be the first to know of any policy changes. Not to worry! The changes are only for facelifts, updates and improvements. We think you will be pleased with our new look and improved navigability. As always, we welcome your feedback!
