Wikipedia identifies "a webring (or web ring) as a collection of websites linked together in a circular structure, and usually organized around a specific theme, often educational
or social". It states that "They were popular in the 1990s and early 2000s, particularly among amateur websites, but have since fallen out of general use and become rare."
Out with the old and in with the new... I no longer belong to any web rings. I do manage a couple loosely but only for the other websites attached to them.
I am the Ring Leader and of course a member, of two Web rings on the Webring website. One is called TampaBay Metro and the other is Alumni Sites. Click the graphics below for the "Official Offsite" sites.
