Webrings!

Post by littlebeggar »

A discussion on the yesterweb discord (nooo don't go there, everyone wants to use the forum more and have slower discussions nooo) popped up about wanting more topic-centric webrings.

Have one? Found one someone else made? Promote it here!
Want one to gather people interested in a specific topic? Don't know how to make it yourself? Want to learn how? It's sooo much easier to start knowing you'll have 5 interested members ready to join and be hyped about it.

What do you like about webrings? What sucked? What makes a cute widget? Webring talk! webring talk!

ayy that was me! i would totally love more topic and interest-specific webrings - they're such a good way of discovering other cool sites!

i'm working on a dragon webring at the moment, for anyone who features dragons on their website or just loves dragons! this is what the widget looks like so far:

i'm hoping to have it ready to go in the next couple days or so. i'll update when that happens!

love the concept of these so much, soo glad theyre making a comeback.

i can't join a bunch since they require embedding javascript/iframes etc which i will not do on principle. the hotline webring has a smart scheme where it uses the links themselves and the fact that someone clicked them to insert you in the ring, and forward users to the right place. that's a nice approach IMO.

i would set something up but idk what topic :p and im not much good at organizing

I had my “gotta catch ‘em all” phase regarding webrings: as you can see by going to my website, I’m into quite a few.
I started two webrings using Yesterweb’s NO-JS stack:
  • the Ediemmari Webring, which is more of a joke within friends;
  • the Italian webring, which is actually a great idea by Tarocchilla, since the the “generic Italian” webrings are all dead (to my knowledge).

I love this?? I'm tbh desirous of more topic-centric webrings. I've been just looking at EVERY site on some of the big ones but a lot are just not to my interest (aesthetically or content wise or both) but I like them cos they in a basic way kind of sort for "here is a site the creator considers medium-finished and you probably haven't seen before"

but i want to find more like, craft centric sites or even like, personal curated recs of what someone considers really good sites (for whatever quality they're looking at) (yes this is not a webring but "most visited" on neocities just keeps showing me the same top contenders...)
